I became interested when I see that comics label peak human around 1,000 lbs. when there was a guy that pulled a 80 ton C-17 carrier (Type of plane) for a distant of 10 ft. What do you guys think?

To me a for someone to be considered peak human they shouldn't be able to lift a ton.

I think the current record is like 1/2 a ton in the clean n jerk.

It varies. Comic books seem pretty consistent; anywhere under a ton.

Video games can vary widly, anywhere from several hundred pounds to hundreds of tons; same with anime.

Peak human I believe should be someone who is at the peak of human ability for their weight class. As such they should be able to press twice or a little more than their own weight at least. They should also be able to compete and excel past olympic level athletes in feats of agility and speed.

I'd say 10 or 15 percent more than olympic level athletes.
