There are nearly 7 billion people on the earth. With our combine effort, can we beat Superman in a Tug of War contest or will he make us look extremely weak .

@Big_Nasty: I think it'd be like 4 people trying to lift a car. Only worse.

In comics humans won against Kryptonians, but in reality we could beat him only with kryptonite.

@MB25:

No but us vs superman in a tug of war the guy can push planets around i doubt 7 billion people have the strength to even put up that much resistance to win a tug of war with superman.

#7 Posted by ChaosBlazer (3930 posts) - - Show Bio

If the average of 7 billion people's strength is just 80 pounds, we can altogether pull 560,000,000,000 pounds. This is equal to 280,000,000 tons, or 280 million tons. Then again, Superman has already pulled a third of a planet. So,

A) The rope breaks.

B) Our effort is uncoordinated and fails.

C) Superman wins fairly.

@ChaosBlazer: We'd be spread thin though. If we somehow merged into one being it'd be easier.

But you're right, Superman's in the billions of tons range at least.

@The_Last_Son_of_Czarnia: yeah I'm also estimating our pulling strength... there are probably a few million disabled people that won't be able to pull a rope, people with asthma that will have to stop after a few minutes, not to mention all the infants that obviously wouldn't be able to pull....

#11 Posted by TifaLockhart (14050 posts) - - Show Bio

I daresay Superman's in the trillions of tons range at least.

#12 Posted by PurpleCandy (773 posts) - - Show Bio

On occassion even humans are known to give Superman very slight trouble, so using one of those incarnations the humans can do this.

I completely agree with you...this shows the insignificance of human kind compared to one kryptonian

The least force that's require move the earth out of it orbit is about 3.4045x 10^22 which mean Superman exert at least 1.1348 x 10^22 n when he pull it with MM and WW that's equilant of lifting 1.1348 x 10^18 tons on earth so you might as well make us all peak humans and we still lose.

1. The rope dies instantly.

2. We won't be able to all fit on the rope, unless we're flying, but some might be un-cooperative and we fail badly.

3. SuperMan wins.

Strength + Weight. You gotta add in the average people's weight plus their leverage and pull strength. In "Tug of War" people don't just pull, they lean back with their weight.

It's not the strength of them "pulling a planet" in space, it's the inertia force of their flight that's pulling the planet. People are confusing physical pulling strength with the force of flight. That's equivalent to how a rocket pulls something that it is chained onto. Rockets don't have muscle strength to pull. It uses the force of its trajectory.

"Tug war" is that enough explaination?

#37 Edited by AngryHulks (3001 posts) - - Show Bio

Assuming we hulked out 7 billion people. Hulk's most quantifiable lifting weight is 150 billion tons (1.50x10^11 tons). If we do rough assumption that Superman pulls 1.1348 sextillion tons, then:

(1.50 x 10^11 tons) x (7.00 x 10^9 Hulks) = 1.05 x 10^21 tons.

1.05 x 10^21 tons / 1.1348 x 10^22 tons = 0.09 , that's only 9% of what Superman could lift.

So even if everyone is Hulk, they still needs 91% more power to wins the tug-of-war against Superman.

Likewise, Blue Marvel's top lifting feat from rough calculation (asteroid) is 134 quadrillion tons (1.34 x 10^17 tons). And it'll takes 74,627 Blue Marvel to beat Superman in tug o' war.

This is in reply to all the planet pulling being mentioned here. If Superman DOES NOT fly, he will lose.

138 lbs (average weight) x 7 Billion = 966,000,000,000 = 483,000,000 tons

132 lbs (average strength) x 7 billion = 924,000,000,000 = 462,000,000 tons

483 Billion tons + 462 Billion tons = 945,000,000 tons

And that's just them leaning back and pulling. Add ground and leverage and it will be nearly 2 Trillion tons.

Superman only weighs 225 lbs, you can rest assured 2 Trillion tons of force will pull a 225 pound Superman off the ground towards the larger mass. Only way Superman can win is by flying off to space and using the force of his flight to pull the 2 Trillion tons.

@Big_Nasty: Is it assumed that all 7 billion humans are perfectly coordinated with their pulling? Because realistically I couldn't see 7 billion people working together perfectly.

I think we could but making it happen would be difficult, firstly you'd have to get 7billion people in once place, or many places, so like america or europe, because we dont know how long this line is going to be with 7billion standing in a row, we'd end up crossing borders!

Plus it would be like a mexican wave effect, one person would start and we'd get dominos, but that means the first people could be pulling for a minimum or 30mins before the last people start. So when does superman come in? when we're all pulling or when the first people start and gradually we pull him over the line?

OMG, I was comparing "Superman fighting a large group of average humans" to "A strong human fighting a group of ants". meaning superman is to us what we are to puny ants, its an analogy. how could you not understand that from the begging? no offense but I facepalmed as a reflex.
