    ie. Class 10? Class 30?

    I think he's Class 10, he can't be too much stronger than that. What do you guys think?

    Class 10 = able to lift 10 tons. It goes like this until you hit Class 100 - this means that the character can press over 100 tons, and his upper limit hasn't been tested. Hulk, thor, colossus (now), abomination are class 100 fellows.

    He weighs about 325 pounds, and on venom he's probably stronger than any olympic level athlete. I would just guess about Class 3, making him able to lift about 6,000 pounds.

    I just thought he'd be a bit stronger because most things that get thrown at him don't hurt him.

    That's true, he does seem to be more invulnerable, but the venom probably also dulls the pain.

    But in the comics they never really showed the extent of his strength. I imagine that he could lift a car, which is about 1 ton, but I doubt he could lift 2 cars with one in each hand.

    Hes a Batman character so he is slightly stronger than an Olympian, when he used venom he was stronger than that. I'd put him slightly above Captain America.

    but then why does batman have so many problems wtih bane if he's only slightly abbove cap? Batman and cap can fight for hours before someone wins, batman gets his back broken by a guy slightly stronger than cap? Doesn't make sense to me :o

    Bane is also pretty smart. He's not one of those muscle goons like Croc that Batman would normally face. Strength and Intelligence? That's a tough combination for anyone to beat. I'd liken him to grey hulk as a marvel comparison.

    I don't think Bane is nearly as strong as any hulk, grey or green :o

    But Grey Hulk was brutal as he was smart and at least in those aspects, I can kind of compare him to Bane because Bane is strong with or without the venom and Bane at one point, was the only bat-villain that figured out that Bruce Wayne was Batman.

    That nigga Batman had to fight ALL of Arkham AND Bane's goons before he faced Bane. Cut the fool some slack!

    'xactly.

    I definitely wouldn't put Bane in class 10 (spidey's class).

    Maybe 2-5 tons at most.

    In that story arch everyone was let loose from Arkham. He was up for days straight cleaning up the streets.
    By the time he fought Bane he hadn't slept or rested for like a week.

    The way it was presented, if Batman and Bane had gone straight up Batman would have cleaned up. But Batman was already a broken toy by the time Bane got to him.

    And that was Bane's plan all along. Poor Batman was outwitted by Nacho Libre.

    That's kind of funny that a roider would still be pretty intelligent. That kind of reminds me of the time when Rhino got super duper smart in that one Spidey comic. roffles.
