    If one were to measure the strength of Buffy Summers on Marvel's RPG scale, what would it be? Remarkable? Incredible?

    I haven't read any of the comics, so I'm just going by the TV show, but the greatest strength feat of hers I can think of is when Dark Willow was coming to kill Jonathan and Andrew who were being held in jail. When Willow arrives, she sees the bars of the cell have been pulled apart wide enough for the guys to escape. We don't see it happen, but Willow says "Buffy", so we know it was her. What Marvel or DC characters does Buffy compare to in strength?

Weaker than strongman type characters but stronger than peak normal people like Batman or slightly augmented like Captain America. So Spider-Manish level strength? Is that a lazy answer? Everyone's going to say Spider-Man. I'd say someone like Moonstone is the right level for Buffy. Super strong but nowhere near Hulk, Superman, Thor etc.

    And for that matter, how strong is Angel? We know that slayers are stronger than vampires. Angel has acknowledged that Buffy is stronger than he is. I can't think of any strength feats for him other than being able to trade blows with Buffy, so their strengths can't be too different. Who might he compare to in Marvel or DC?

Triathlon? I'm just thinking Buffyverse vampires are a few ticks above humans with speed and strength. They're demon-lite.

A vampire is stronger than an average human but isn't cut out to take on a moderately powered DC or Marvel character IMO. So Triathlon. He's got the power of 3 people but that's about it I think.
