    Strength Level

    Concept » Strength Level appears in 0 issues.

    How much weight a being can lift determines that beings strength level. The following is a list cataloging and categorizing many characters of the Marvel Universe among others of similar strength based on their demonstrated strength. The class number label of each category denotes the range of weight (in tons) a character can lift/press, unassisted, using only physical/muscular strength.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    Definition

    Strength, as used in the context of this article, is the physical ability to lift weight over one's head to full arms extension and/or move other physical objects against the resistance of gravity. The influence of gravity while on Earth is the default level of gravity against which strength is measured in the Marvel Universe.

    Strength in this context means only physical ability; not psychic ability, elemental power, magic use or any other non-physical means of lifting or moving objects. These strength classes/categories apply specifically to the Marvel Universe only, but can be applied as guidelines for any fictional universe.
