... Marvel's Planet Hulk handbook.
I was just going over an older thread (How much Stronger is the Hulk compared to...) below and there appears to be some confusion as to where the current Gravage Hulk's base strength stands compared to previous incarnations of the Hulk. In the past it has only been the Merged Hulk whose base strength was equal to the likes of Thor, Hercules, Namor, etc... i.e. class 100. Of course while the Savage Hulk started at class 80 (Thing, Wonderman levels) or so he could outstrip virtually everyone eventually while the much stronger Merged Hulk was limited in that he was afraid to get too angry for fear of losing control and thus "messing up" Doc Savage's carefully crafted "Merged" personality. Infact it was only due to a freak accident in that shrapnel was lodged in Merged Hulk's brain which removed his mental restrictions and allowed him to take on a Warrior Maddened Thor.
Anyway I have scanned the Hulk's entry in the Marvel Planet Hulk guide book where it clearly says that Hulk is able to press in excess of 100 tons (the old classification for what is now called the Class 100 category) and that his upper limits remain a mystery. So Hulk does start at 100+ tons and then when angry, who knows ?
Of course this whole argument on Gravage Hulk's base strength should have been moot in the first place since we have all seen with our own eyes Hulk press one handed a Giant spaceship above his head while calm.
