The 7 billion people of Earth STOMP 67%
After a tough competition, Superman (weakened by Kryptonite and the fact that he hasn't seen the yellow sun for 3 months) wins. 8%
After a tough competition, the people of earth win. 8%

7 billion people should Stomp? Maybe I'm incorrect here, but it seems a little much to say that Superman (while weakened from kryptonite) is 7 billion times stronger than the average person

Assuming the average person can lift 200 lbs that would be 760 million tons.

I'm a grade school teacher. We have field day every year where all the classes go outside and play fun games. My 2nd grade class had 16 girls and 8 boys. So I (250 lbs - pretty darn strong) joined the boys squad. We got stomped. I face planted. Moral of the story - Supes gets stomped

Edit - 7 billion people - average weight of 140 lbs let's say = over 1 trillion lbs. not including the force of everyone pulling. Just the weight of every human combined is over 1 trillion. Not familiar enough with Supes to say he can or can't - I say neigh

How weakened from Krytonite is he ? Like so weakened that he has problem just walking and then you further strip him from his power source for 3 freaking months ? Or being constantly exposed to Krytonite while at the same time separated from his power source for 3 months ? If he is that weakened then I am sure he will probably be on his death bed, will have trouble just breathing and as powerless as a normal human is, even worse maybe. I or most healthy people would crumblstomp him in that case

@immadnice: Supes can bench press the Earth in his prime, and the Earth weighs around 6 sextillion metric tons IIRC

What has lifting to do with anything... Not here, not in this case, nothing.

You pull in a tug of war, not lift. Different muscles and you add your own mass to it. But... since it's CV... lifting was excpected to be mentioned i guess... even if it makes literally zero sense.

Actually, Superman could do it if he's post crisis.
