How strong is he?

He's pretty strong without his suit, right? How strong?

Not pretty sure but he was able to almost KO Gog while Superman couldn´t do it...

@crimsonfox69: that hard to believe, why doesn't he just take out more often and fights guys like Doomsday?

@Leliel: I know it's hard to believe it but it was show in the issue of Justice Society of America where they fight GOG and magog was created...

@crimsonfox69: 
Very, very strong apparently. 

Though it seems to me this is DC trying to put someone in their top strength tier just to do it, and at the cost of diluting Superman's strength.  It's bullshit.

@PowerHerc:
I do like this character but have to agree with you about DC trying to put this guy in their top strength, but in the other hand maybe he is really really very strong but cannot be compared with Superman because of his lack of other virtues like speed for what we know his suit makes him very slow ...

@crimsonfox69:  well maybe he can dish out but can't take much damage unlike Superman

Why can't someone other than Supes be strong?

@WaveMotionCannon: Supes is a God-like being while CS is a human who has no feeling in his body. As cool as CS is, he shouldn't compare to KC superman.

I'm not saying someone other than Supes can't be strong (Captain Marvel, Mon-El, Mr. Majestic, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Power Girl, etc are all quite strong), what I'm saying is DC seems to be trying to make Citizen Steel a true top tier strongman in the DC Universe when it makes no sense for a modern Earth-based, tech-based hero to have incalculable strength (moving planets and such) comparable to the above mentioned heroes. The modern technology just shouldn't allow Steel to reach that level of strength, imo

It could just be the material he's mad out of or just a simple feat just to give him creed. I mean Luke Cage knocked out Iron Clad(a guy who fights Hulk), Panther beat Surfer in their first encounter, and don't even get me started on Karate Kid. CS may not be strong as Superman but he may hit harder or he could be made out of a unique material, we won't know until we see a real test. And as far as tech based heroes not being able to be top tier...........Batman, Iron-man, Lex Lugthor, Hulk, Braniac, Doomsday(he was an experiment remember), Thanos........these are pretty high up characters who all use science and technology to make themselves stronger and more deadly,
