In a fictional made up medium \:D ?

You arent really asking that, are you? Its possibly the most idiotic question one can ask in a comic book message board.

How can one GRAB energy?

Ask the Hulk.

How can one lift the ocean?

Ask Hercules. Some painter used that theme in one of his work.

There is still weight acting on that beam, and we have 'engineering disasters' all the time in which a load bearing wall is insufficient to the task, and something collapses.
