I'm not trying to bug you or anything, but I seriously can't understand what you're saying.

Two things:

  1. 800 lbs to 25 tons is a huge gap.

  2. He's not dead. (Do you read comics?)

You are confusing Luke Cage with Bill Foster. They are nothing alike. Also I'm pretty sure that Luke Cage was never made of titanium, but his skin is virtually indestructible (as tough as titanium).

There are so many other problems with the zombie thing. If you want the full list, talk to Deadpool.

I've been posed that one before one the forum. It seems to be transmitted through bodily fluids (hence the bite) so all it would take is some blood or mucus hitting his eyes or mouth and that's about it.

Someone says:

Look up the word "virtual" in the dictionary. It doesn't mean what you think it means.

I think luke is in the 25 metric tons-50 metric tons lifting capacity area if I remember correctly or was it 800kg-25 metric tons area.

#17 Posted by Valkaad (2589 posts) - - Show Bio

Originally he could lift 3 tons

#18 Posted by StrongestOneThereIs (6490 posts) - - Show Bio

The Vine has Cage strength at 70 tons since his second process that gave him his power

Is this true?

If so, it chnages a lot for me as far as his battler threads.

I don't think there's proof even adamantium can ripp his skin. At least, i have never seen that. I remember that his skin was impossible to scan by Rom's scope, making it impossible to see if he was human or not. Not even Hulk's skin blocked  it like that, so....

the Viner says:

"Luke Cage's strength was roughly in the Marvel Class 7-10 (7 to 10 ton lifting capacity) area at his maximum level, about the same as Spider-Man. A second treatment has blessed him with strength in the Class 70 range, enabling him to lift a little over 75 tons."

can anyone confirm this

Though he has been fighting and beating characters at that level, I don't thik he himself is.

Didn't his powers get upgraded? How and when did that happen?
#25 Edited by segamarvel (616 posts) - - Show Bio

On paper? 25 tons. Not to sure about feats though. I tend to chalk up most of his victories over stronger oponents to his durability, not his strength.
