Weight is a measure of gravitational pull, which is just a matter of mass and distance. In this example, the masses are near infinite but so are the distances. There's no way to compute any kind of force without a frame of reference. This is why I said it is an undefined feat. It's like the Hulk punching a hole in reality. How much strength does that take? Who knows?

I think you are taking too much in consideration "real world physics" into this. We dont know the factual numeric weight, but we dont really need to. We see what the description of the feat is, and we see what it is about. Its unglodly heavy and was always supposed to be.

This feat, as far as Western fictional strong Men goes, its basically the big mother of all feats.

We have other alike, that cant quantify in terms of an actual precise number. Hulk clapping a "universe", or Superman and Wonder Woman trying to hold Spectre from falling.

This is just more impressive than most cosmic feats, because he did it singlehandly, for 3 hours.
