Accuracy of Giantman's strength?

It's stated that at 100 feet tall that he's able to lift 50 tons, is that realistic or just made up? What would his strength realistically be at 100 feet in height? 
Also, what of Ultimate Giantman's strength? I recall he can only become 60 feet tall at max since realistically that's when the human body wouldn't be able to support itself, so what's his general strength limit?

A year and a half later and no replies? Where are all of the nerds at?

Giant-Man is strongest at 12 feet, after twelve his strength is lost so as to help support his body, I would almost say that 50 tons would be about right at 100 feet, at twelve he is near 100 class, probably more at 85-90 but pretty close, Ill get some images to try and show everyone why I feel that way. As far as Ultimate Giant-Man I do believe he is class 100, but once again Ill have to do some research to confirm.

See, I thought that his strength was proportional to his height. So if he can bench, say, 200 lbs at 6 feet, it'd be 3,333 lbs at 100 feet... But now after doing the math, that's kind of weak compared to the other heroes...

Ya marvel didn't use any math and just put him at 50 tons at 100 feet, where that strength came from is unknown, using a math formula I came up with a formula of 111% increase to strength every 6 feet. Marvel stats make absolutely no sense, at 10 feet Pym can lift roughly 1000lbs according to the handbook, however he has been shown to do so in excess at that height. a more realistic number at 10 feet would be 5-10 tons, as Cap can lift 1000lbs, and Giant-Man has shown to be quite stronger than Cap.
