While I concede that many of the characters' strength levels are open for quite a bit of debate, I think Superman has proven to be at least in the top three. Why do you rank him so low?

Agreed, classic Juggernaut was roughly Class 70 in terms of pure strength. His thing was always invulnerability and unstoppable force.

I don't know that I'd rate them this same way if it was a battle thread, rather than a strength comparison. Because then other factors come into play; durability, energy powers, intelligence, will power, weapons, flight, speed, etc. But as for muscular might alone, this is about how I see it.

Well, I guess I didn't think of it necessarily as a "low" ranking. I mean, those are some bad-boys sittin' atop him on my list. And even at that, I state down at the bottom of my post that I think a lot of these characters are pretty close in terms of raw, physical might. I guess I just see those others as having a little more than Supes in that department.

That's not to say I think that all of them would win a fight with Kal-El, who clearly has other abilities to bring into the fray. But in answering the question of just who has the most muscle power alone? I see guys like Hulk, Hercules, Mangog, Thanos, Kurse, Doomsday, Destroyer and Champion (non-jobbing version) as his superior, even if only slightly in some cases.

But really, we're talking some of the very strongest beings in any comic universe here. I don't think there's any shame to say that Superman isn't quite as "strong" as Mangog, or Doomsday (the latter of which I believe to be verifiably true). I think Supes is near the top. And would be even closer to the top if some of the more exotic characters on the list weren't there. But even still, notice that I've placed him above Morg (WOL), Sentry, Thor, Drax, Count Nefaria and Juggernaut. Again, those are some bad-boys that he's sittin' atop there.


But of course... opinions vary....
