    Quintillion is 1 followed by 18 zeros. So it would be

    200.000.000.000.000.000.000 tons

    That multiplied by 1.000 (1t=1.000kg) you'll get how much kilos he can lift. Its basically the same number with additional 3 zeros:

    200.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 kg

    Simplified, that's 2 x 10^21 kg, which is about 1/30 of Earth's mass, which is a joke to what Superman can actually lift.

    He was able to hold a miniature Black Hole in his hands in an issue of JLA volume 3. A small Black Hole weights around 5-10 times than our Sun. Our Sun weights around 332.000 times the mass of the Earth. Let's say he was holding a very small Back Hole, 3 times the weight of our Sun. That's 332.000 times 3 is 1.000.000 Earths (rounded). Earth weights:

    5.974.200.000.000.000.000.000.000 kg

    times 1.000.000 equals

    5.974.200.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 kg

    Now thats sounds about right, doesn't it? Its superman after all


    Wow...

    Wow...
    ...

    Well I just have to say:

    *clears throat*

    I HATE THAT! Superman gets every fricken power they can possibly give him to be strong and most of the other superheros have 0-3 powers (sorry if this is way off havn't had time to conider quote) and Superman has 8 (as far as I remember)! In my point of view the more powers a hero has, the weaker he/she is. That it why Batman is my favorite hero. He fights crime with no powers an is still one of the World's Finest.

    I read a scientific book about Superman's strenght and how exactly he draws it from the sun and it was quiet interesting. But really it all depends on how much sun his body sucks in to calculate his power but it really is effortless.

    But to say his strenght, reading in that one book. A single hair off his head could hold the weight of a 1 Ton Dumbell....

    Also, Superman's not the strongest ever...That goes down to someone a little greenier.

    This thread is obviously talking about All-Star Superman. Silver Age Superman was pulling the entire Solar System before. Earth itself is like6.0 sextillion metrictons which is way far and heavier than 200Quintillion Tons. SA Superman was pulling the whole Solar System which is we can say that Earth is just a part of it. Informing everyone that 200Quintillion Tons divided by three is Superman's upper limit isdefinitelywrong. Besides, it was noted before in Silver Age era that Superman has UnlimitedStrengths, Unlimited Speedand Unlimited Durability but was revise in thesucceedingversionsbecausewriters are having a hard time creating new story for Superman.
