Quote:I would estimate Buffy to be class 1 to 2 level, so 'classic' Beast level.
Classic Beast level was 1 ton lifting strength. That's about MCU Cap level or at least Steve is close to that considering his feats.
But on average (probably budget constraints) Buffy simply didn't always display even this level of strength. She was typically portrayed as about 25% weaker than that based on her average, day-to-day, feats. Sure, she has some high end feats, but she has some really low showings too (like with that chandelier falling on her and taking an entire episode to move it off), struggling to break regular chains, etc.
So, again, Buffy simply isn't as strong as some of you are billing her to be.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
