Strength feats work differently in Marvel though. Busiek even said so in the crossover. Top tier guys are supposed to lift 100 tons yet the hellicarrier had to weight thousands and thousands of tons. Go figure. I think that this feat is comparable to a DC feat. On top of that, I don't see what is the big deal about him gritting his teeth for two small panels. Superman does this all the time when he lifts large things. Unless it says somewhere that it was too heavy for him than I don't think it's true. Still, if Sentry were in the DCU I think he'd be pulling Black Adam type feats.

Class 100 is just a classification not a law! Many of Marvels characters regularly lift way more than 100 tonnes.

I never said Sentry couldn't stop the helicarrier it's just a question of stopping time before it impacts with the ground and he was running out of that time. It seems likely that his power was fluctuating at that point as he seemed surprised at his inability to perform better with it... we've discussed this plenty on the board anyway and my feeling is that Sentrys performance there was perfectly equal to what DC top tier are capable of - any one of DCs top guns would have struggled with that carrier in those circumstances.
