This is how much Superman can bench press, this is his one rep max: ten septillion pounds. I did the math to figure it out.

@dr_harlequin: There is so many parts of the caculations that I cant remember, it took me a very long time to figure it out, but I promise, I did it right.

Compelling evidence sir.

@dzhak: @mr_winchester: Guys, it literally took me like 2 hours because I kept on making mistakes, but I finally got it. Sorry for not remembering how I did it, but please believe me, I promise I did it right.

Cool that you took the time to do it. But you should probably show us how.

Lol. Seems so legit

@nightwing737: I'm curious as to how how you did these calculations, surely you must've written some of it down no?

Seems legit.

@dm225: @theocitylegend: Please stop being jerks.

@allstarsuperman: I forgot, please read the posts that I put before you start posting.

You went on to the internet, claimed to have proved some theory, and then refused to show any evidence. What were you expecting the results of that would be?

I believe they call it pseudo science

@dm225:

Man, I am trying to be nice. I figured it out and then I didn't even think about giving evidence, because I figured people would trust me. But obviously not. So if you don't believe me, don't post.

Did you factor in Blue sunlight, white sunlight, sun dipping, wind pressure, time of day, time of year, age, testosterone level (don't lift right after happy time), who is writing him, diet, dumbbell vs barbell, supplements taken before working out, time between doing that excerise, warmup conditions, previous injuries, additional algebraic/physics equations that actually cancel each other out but make you look brilliant in front of the unsuspecting, etc... ???

@drgnx: You just made yourself sound like a jerk.

This thread is terrible. In an effort to turn it around, I'll go ahead and try and figure this stuff out myself.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-repetition_maximum

^ that's where I'm going to get the one-rep max formula from. I'm using the Epley Formula to be exact.

The weight of the Earth is approximately 5.972e+24 kg (courtesy of Google). Superman said that he benched the weight of the Earth for 5 days without breaking a sweat, so I'm assuming that he's capable of performing one rep per second. My reasoning behind this is that I'm capable of bench pressing that quickly with my warm-up weight (135 lbs or 61.23 kg).

W = 5.972E24 kg

r = 86,400

1RM = 8.6002772e+28 kg or 1.89603656692902469e+29 lbs

There you go, that's an approximation of New 52 Superman's one rep max. Oh, and it's probably wrong because so many assumptions are involved and we're talking about a comic book character. You're welcome, OP.

@alak: 1) Good work at least coming up with something. 2) The scientist in the issue does say to actually test Superman's limits she would need to tap into a trans-dimensional wormhole, so his limits realistically exceed real world calculation.

I'm telling you add "10x^3/y" at the start, "y/(5x)^2" in the middle and "5/2x" at the end of every equation (ensure all are on the same side of the '=' sign and only separated by the multiplication function).

shyt..i can lift 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.1 pounds too...so im stronger than kal el lol..but that's combining both of our powers together as one lol

@alak: Kudos, OP should learn something from that example
