Yep.

Deux ex machina strength (whatever level the story requires), which means Supes has unlimited strength.

Unfortunately, that's pretty much what Superman has become. Just look at Final Crisis.

He's weaker than a speeding locomotive! At least AC1 is... :D

Depends on the Gravity. 
He can lift Infinite Tons in Zero gravity.

I honestly don't think he has a max limit. I know his strength is 1,000,000+ tonnes. When he absorbs enough solar energy he could be as stronger or stronger than Darkseid. So it could be undefined to say that it's limitless.

I don't recall superman has a limit on strength. In the history of Comics they never capped him not even the Silver-age version. All his feat was down with no effort.

#17 Posted by Or35ti (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

The truth is that in comics no one has a max limit for anything

#18 Posted by kama_094 (25 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's about 67 quintillion tonnes... I'm saying this because in all-star superman his strength was tripled... In this state he was able to lift 200 quintillion tonnes and felt like he could do more... so 200/3= 67 aproximately.... sorry to bring math into this I just want an opinion :)

Depends which version. I don't know about current, but Pre-Flashpoint was barely capable of moving the Earth. So PF Superman's limit would be somewhere a little higher than a planet's weight. Pre-Crisis, no clue at all if he even had a max strength limit. He moved a star by breathing, and carried planets effortlessly.

There were three scans of him moving the planet. One was with him wonder woman, john / the other was him pulling by him self while Hal Jordan provide the Harness the other was Him pulling some alien planet by him self with some chains the only catch with that was you couldn't tell the size.

SA superman strength no limit...

#22 Posted by buttersdaman000 (10583 posts) - - Show Bio

I think a nice strength cap for standard Superman would be planetary level

#23 Posted by super_psycho (2789 posts) - - Show Bio

His max strength limit is unknown, if you go by feats he can destroy a planet..

#24 Posted by ssejllenrad (12790 posts) - - Show Bio

He lifted a book with infinite number of pages... WTF?!?!?!?

Strong enough to defeat the problem, but weak enough to make it look like he juuuuust overcomes it.

Superman doesn't have a limit. Superman Prime's origin proves this.

He's as strong as the plot requires him to be.

My guess is superman can absorb all the energy in all the universes.

@pyrogram: Must we unrealistically push the boundaries? The stories haven't been that ridiculous since the Silver Age.

@deranged_midget: Don't you love the way they were that ridiculous once though :P

@pyrogram: Oh it's beyond hilarious. Trying to go back and read some of those issues requires a completely different mindset. And I don't even want to start with those Golden Age stories :P

I'd say he typically varies from vaguely "mountain-moving" to vaguely "planetary" in scale given the setting of the story. Sometimes higher or lower than that but i think most showings would fit that range.

DID YOU JUST... REPLY TO MY POST FROM 2 YEARS AGO?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Also, no. He's not stronger than a locomotive back in AC#1 (New 52).

#47 Posted by Bruxae (14008 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, he has no limit, and if he did it wouldn't be defined.
