Does anyone know how strong Doc Samson is supposed to be currently?

I know he started out at around 75 tons and then they de-powered him to 25 (which I think is way to weak for him). I was just wondering what the current level is.

Valkaad, I think Samson actually started out weaker than 75 tonnes. I believe it was nearer to 50 tonnes and then when he was blasted with gamma rays again (and recovered his powers), he got raised to around 70 tonnes. I don't recall him being depowered to 25 tonnes. When do you think this happened ?

Original Marvel Universe had him at 70tons and the deluxe addition had him at 25 ton. I didn't know if he was back up to 70, or if like everyone else now, he was even more powerful.

The real question is, "Is it tons or tonnes?"

The answer could sway the final outcome of any battle between muscular psychiatrists.

It a difficult question to answer but since I salways use tonnes, I sticking to it.

@the creator: Last time I checked, he was still strong enough to take on the Hulk, I didn't know he'd been de-powered.

I'm currently dressed like Doc Samson and have been all day.
