Yeah it's one feat in the lot but feats aren't all of the same value and thousand of instances multiplied by 0 still give 0. Unless more is given to explain the unexplainable, lifting a truck might be just as impressive (I don't beleieve it's the case but you get my point). If they come up later saying the stuff in the sky hercules lifted was the same weight the same properties we have on earth and no magical olympian side-effect came into play than the feat will not only be the biggest EVER but usable.
You dont have reference points in Superman, or Hulk over the top feats either.
I get why people wonder about he factual number, but that is irrevelant. What matters is what a feat like this represents. Likewise for Hulk punching a time storm and the like.
The one thing that is simple to see, is, the more over the top feats a character does, the more the gap will be if compared against someone who doesnt. At least, that is, when the discussion is about strength.
