Reply Subj: Cap is anywhere between 800lbs and 5 tons.

... is that he's typically around the 1000 lbs. mark, give or take a couple hundred pounds either way. I can't think of anything in terms of lifting feats that would put him anywhere near 5 tons level. And if there were such a showing, I think it'd be a huge outlier for him. I actually consider other strong humans like the Kingpin and the Ox to be stronger than Cap (you could argue that either one is unofficially superhuman in their own right, but I don't think either is 5 tons level).
As far as Max goes, I think you're probably right that she's not outright superhuman in strength. A 400 lbs. rating might be a little low, since I've seen her toss what was likely a 200+ lbs. man fully across a room and into a wall, but she's got nothing I can think of to put her clearly beyond Batman in strength. She is shown jumping out of third or fourth storey windows and landing fine, but that's a durability feat, and strength & durability don't always correlate.
Max's speed showings are quite impressive though, so I think she probably does surpass Buffy in that department. She runs short distances at super-speed, runs along walls, and in one scene, she was able to memorise the order of every card in a deck while flipping through them. I don't recall similar speed showings for Buffy, although it's been longer since I watched her series.
What sort of strength showings does Buffy have to put her at or near the 2 ton mark?
