That was a crack at Marvel system with their fetishism with 100 tons. A joke. But when we think about it what was on Herc shoulders? Empty space? It's a bit hard to bench press empty space.

No I haven't that's true. But, I've seen him struggle more with apparently infinitly less than untold galaxies when on earth and so has others just as strong or stronger. Olympus really has a weird sky and I wouldn't use it on a 1:1 basis conversion with earth unit.

We approx know what a planet or a mountain is weighting using earth standard. The same can't be said here and it's obvious we can't use a ratio of 1:1 with Olympian stock when we look at herc on earth.

I have no problem with this pandora box because I don't see it as such. I was never one to beleive Superman was 100000000 times stronger than Thor. Just significantly so. And yes I can perfectly imagine Thor replacing either superman, MM or WW in their planet pulling feat and still succeeding in their attempt. Are Rhulk , kurse or Mangog stronger than new earth superman? Most likely yes with all it means. But the extend of this difference will always be very hard to measure and most likely less significant than with Thor. I also honestly think SBP or any PC kryptonians are stronger than all of them tho.
