How strong is herculese

Holding together a 99 billion ton island is one hell of a feat but then Holding up the entire universe??

Hercules is able to lift 100 tons in Earth's atmosphere.  That's the official answer, which is why I hate the 100 class system.  Obviously Herc is far above that, though he's still only tied for second with Thor and Sentry behind the Hulk.  At least as far as Earth heroes go.

Hercules is nearly at the tip-top of the highest level.  The Hulk is stronger than Hercules when totally enraged.  Next is Hercules, then Thor followed by Sentry.

I've always hated that the max was 100 tons. Theirs such a big difference between the lowest and highest 100 tons that their definitely needs to be a new ranking system.

@PowerHerc
But he will be able to do it ?
#11 Posted by PowerHerc (83461 posts) - - Show Bio

@D3athstroke: If he truly did dent the Adamantine, then I'd say there's a remote possibility (after a lot of time and effort) that he could eventually bend or break adamantium, but sticking to established Marvel precedence and continuity I'd say no, probably not.

@PowerHerc
 Yes he did it with his fists and with mace he was just ripping Adamantine Golems like paper

@D3athstroke:

You're right; Hercules did dent the Adamantine door. It's shown and stated quite clearly.

As for the golems; Those golems weren't constructed of Adamantine.

They were apparently made out of a Adamantine/gold mixture, according to the same issue you posted from, which is what Hephaestus wanted to make more of though this time using a mold of Athena..

This would explain why they have nowhere near the durability of the Adamantine door. Thanks for reminding me. I won't forget again. :)

even if it was it doesn't really matter. Uru when not enchanted is not as Durable. Thor has crushed un enchanted uru in his bare hands more than once aswell.  
 
as for the Actual question of the Thread. He is as Strong as Thor when he isa full God and physically once of the strongest being on earth. him and Thor moved the earths axis by Arm wrestling. I would say heis atleast Physically stronger than Superman.

@Thor's hammmer: idid not know that. My bad.

@D3athstroke
 Just a quick note on your Skrull God Kly'bn example.  Kly'bn may have technically been a skyfather due to his rank he has nowhere near the power of other skyfathers like Odin and Zeus.  During the battle Kly'bn stated he was equal to Hercules.   So while it is an impressive strength showing it is not the same as beating someone on a being who operates on or near the skyfather power level like Odin, Zeus, Thanos or Galactus.
 
Oh, also as strong as Hercules is apparently he is not as strong as the Hulk.  One recent issue has someone state that they thought Hulk and Hercules were equals strength wise only for Banner to say Hercules was only close to the Hulk in strength.  Thor suffered something similar a while back.  Pak really has been pushing to make Hulk the physically strongest being in the Marvel Universe short of an uber cosmic being.

it's cool :P  
 
the more Magic Uru absorbs the Harder it becomes. Thor's hammer has a porton of The Odin power in it and is harder than Adamantium.  
 
Thor crushes Uru chains that are Holding Loki in his Bare hands and forms a hammer out of Uru with his bare hands both happen in very old issues of journey into mystery.

Which issue of what comic was this in? I'd like to check it out. Thanks.

Hercules has deus ex machina strength. A writer wouldn't need to creatively change him to much to lift anything in theory.

 Incredible Hulk #627.  I couldn't find the scan I had scene, but the following is a link to a video that has the issue.  If you fast forward to about a minute 4 you see the discussion and claims about it.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHMfcMMRz7E
