Varies depending on the armor. Standard is near 100 tons or just a little under, I believe.

Depends on the armour. But some feats for his standard armours have put him in the 100 ton+ bracket at least.

@veshark: Extremis? I belive even his standard armor puts him in the class of 100 at least.

Extremis is in the 100 tons bracket. It's not really a strength-focused suit though - Extremis' specialty was that it made Tony superhuman, enabling to mentally connect to technology (and his suit), changing his brain to a hard drive that could operate at superhuman levels.

He generally needs to don the Hulkbuster if he wants to play in the superheavyweight class where Thor and Hulks roam.
The normal suit is around Captain Marvel levels.

@g2_: He's a class 100, but he can lift hundreds of thousands of tons.

Most of those scans are self-explanatory, but I can explain and calculate them for you if you'd like.

@noone301994: why is he so powerful lol. 3rd one gives him an energy boost but still shows the strength of the suit. The rest is just too much.

@rabumalal: Why do you personally think it's too much? Is it because of your preexisting views about where Iron Man's strength levels should be?

@noone301994: Yes, I'm not a huge fan and didn't know much about him, other than crossover events and movies which don't count.

@rabumalal: Gotcha, yeah I'm just curious. He's considered a class 100 and most of the time his high end strength isn't any good for story development. The writers tend to downgrade Stark when he's in the presence of street levelers so he doesn't completely outshine them. I mean, God forbid Iron Man gets a bit more spotlight than Spider-Man in a crossover.

@noone301994: IMO Spider-Man is a LOT more interesting than Iron-Man. It's not like Tony isn't getting attention he gets more than Peter usually.

Siege (both were not there, Tony returns at the end)

Fear Itself

Civil War (Tony event)

Build-up to Secret Wars (main event Peter is still not that important)

Infinity

AXIS

Characters like Thor and Vision also get downgraded, that's the way teams work. I just didn't know Tony was "catching an airplane like Supes" strong.

IMO Iron Man is more interesting. All Spider-Man does is jump around, web and punch things while making jokes. Peter Parker is a pretty interesting and complex person who is relatable, but idc about it being relatable. To me, it's a fiction so why would I want it to be that way? That's just me though, a lot of people disagree. Peter does get a lot more spotlight than you think.

Siege (both were not there, Tony returns at the end)

He actually was there. He punches out Norman, remember? He came with Captain America's group, so technically he got more page time than Tony did. In nearly every Avengers group meeting, he is ALWAYS written as the guy who talks. He's always making quips or having something to say. That only happens with Tony if he's leading a meeting or something.

Fear Itself

He held his own against Angrir Thing, remember? That's not exactly a spotlight, but the writers actually decided to make that fight just as long as Red Hulk's fight with the Thing.

Civil War (Tony event)

You can't deny Spider-Man's huge role in that story. Hell, he even had 10 side books in Civil War. Iron Man had like 4.

Build-up to Secret Wars (main event Peter is still not that important)

You have a point here. I don't think he should have had any role here though and I'm surprised the writers didn't give him one. Apparently he's on Reed-tier intelligence (according to Spider wanking writers). Why wasn't he helping everybody with the Incursion? I'm not complaining though. That's the way it should be.

Infinity

Another good point. I think he was Superior Spider-Man at this time though, wasn't he? I doubt Octavius would have willingly volunteered to go into space to fight aliens though, to be fair.

AXIS

He played a decent role here too. I think he got more page time than Iron Man. All that stuff with him and Carnage.

Characters like Thor and Vision also get downgraded, that's the way teams work. I just didn't know Tony was "catching an airplane like Supes" strong.

That's true, but usually the writers will at least put Thor in a league from the rest. Like in Infinity when they fought Thanos. You didn't see Captain Marvel or Captain America doing all that much in comparison to Thor (which is how it should be) and in Avengers vs X-Men they put Thor in a league above the rest too. I feel like they tend to get the high tiers right in group battles, but they try to make the street levelers and mid-tiers almost equal in contribution which cuts down the mid-tier.

But yeah, he can catch planes too. Those are only like 100 tons.

@g2_: Moving 5 battleships, lifting an entire helicarrier, etc., isn't 100 tons.

@g2_: It is his base level, the "tonner" determines the greatest maximum weight you can lift.

@adriusus: bru, I think you mean maximum level.

@g2_: Bruh..

Maximum level means that it is the heaviest object that a person can lift with struggle.

Base level means you can lift an object with ease.

And Iron Man didn't struggle to pull 5 battleships, didn't struggle to lift helicarrier/building etc.

He's a Class 100,000 and a high tier.

Again, base level is what you can lift with ease. Maximum level means that highest you can lift with struggle.

Superman didn't struggled with quintillion tons.

Period.

By the way, what issue is that huge rocket feat?
