The rules are simple:

Superman must lift/carry these listed objects in general. He only fails if he has ZERO chance of lifting it.

Also, assume that when Superman does lift them, they DON'T crumble under their own weight (like the building he lifted in JL). What really matters most is "can Supes carry that weight?"

NOTE: Whether the tectonic plate feat counts is up to you.

I usually go by the world engine feat since it happened on screen and a few people believe that it's definitely a multi-million tonnes feat.

Stops at Eiffel Tower. We have no idea how he induced tectonic shift. Maybe he used his propulsion to cancel out some frictional force, but it's all speculation. All of his other feats should be less than 10k tons of lifting strength. Even his Russian apartment feat is a 2k tonner.

Stops at 9 or 10

His best onscreen feat is at 8000 tons and people think he's gonna make it past even round 10? No wonder people think Clark ragdolls every MCU high tier at once. Wank is insane

I went on 12 with some ease just to be safe but he's definitely on 13 if he applies a lot of strength.

Aquaticpianist found some particularly helpful information in determining some of the conditions a bit more precisely. He most likely can lift more, but this is a good ballpark unless superior info about some of the premises can be found.

  • Via this article, an average 2,200 square foot, 2 level home is about 605,000 pounds, or 302.5 tons.
  • Via this article, 64% of Russian (where this scene takes place) live in apartments smaller than 60 square meters, or 646 square feet. That’s roughly one-third the floor space of a 302.5 ton home. Let’s say one apartment is 100 tons for a nice round number. It’s likely less because the home includes another floor of materials, an attic, its own roof, etc, that an apartment doesn’t, but to benefit Superman let’s say one Russian apartment is 100 tons.
  • The building Superman lifted has five floors, each floor having a row of 13 windows and a balcony. From the Russian apartment article, it looks like there are typically two windows and a balcony for each apartment. Assuming that each apartment in the building Superman lifted is one floor and has two windows and one balcony,
  • 4.25 apartments per floor...
  • 5 floors...
  • 4.25 apartments x 5 floors = 4.25(100 tons) x 5 = 2,125 tons.

He can lift about 7500-8000 ton of weight with feats. With tectonic plate feat counting he can lift all of them combined.

I calculated the weight of the apartments long ago and its about 7500 tons.
