today's research topic: short men with tall women.

Like Steve Rogers with... anyone? Pre serum Steve with She Hulk would work.

I keep finding pictures where a three inch height difference is described as 'towering', or where she's clearly basically crouching for the photo

and like


show me 5' 4" dudes with 6' tall women,
possibly in heels,
where he is not standing on an apple box.

Just, height difference, a normal human variation.

... I possibly started out looking for that one panel of Big Barda picking up her husband Scott and carrying him, and then got frustrated when I couldn't find it.

Just, dudes can be heroes and very much shorter than the statuesque amazon women around them
that is a thing.

And also, more muscular amazon women would be a great and awesome thing.

I didn't like the TV show "L.A. Law," but one of the couples was a tall, goddessy woman and a nebbishy little guy.

Random note on LA Law - well not random, but not directly related - on their pilot they had a trans woman character who, considering the time and place, got excellent treatment (admittedly I had the lowest expectations, but still!). If she had remained, media as we know it might have been different. She got a good ending, a respectful attitude from all but the slimiest characters... Relatively decent clothes and hair, considering it was the 80s...

*iirc it started with a dead gay guy, too, but hey.

I mean I'm not sure how tall he is but probably taller than me. "Shorter than Tom Hiddleston" =/= short. It's just =human.

Have you ever read Mrs Mills in the Sunday Times? Anyway, I still remember one week when she had a bloke write in because he always felt a little awkward when out and about with his wife, since she was very tall & gorgeous and he was short and not really a looker.

Mrs Mills (in her inimitable way) reassured him that - if he wasn't wealthy - people would just presume that he was hung like a donkey. :)
