  • *Extended Rules (Expert Netbooks)

The above table does not take into account the effect which the mandatory ranks in Super-Strength would have on the Press Limit. However, By utilizing the Benchmarks table and the formula for determining "dead" Rank values show in Part 3, it can be determined that a characters with a Strength score of 34, for instance, would actually have a Heavy Load/Press Limit of 119 tons and a Damage/Grappling number of 102 (using the extended rules figure) when all is said and done.

All Innate Strength gained after reaching the Damage Cap determined by the Campaign's Power Level should be treated as Super-Strength except for not being subject to Power Nullification nor gaining the benefit of Power Extras or any Feats, including Extra Effort.

Without the additional Marvel Power Ranks listed in the Expert Netbooks following Amazing would be Monstrous (63), still treated as equal to a Strength score of 26, and then it would skip to Unearthly (88) , still equal to a Strength score of 34, and from then proceed as shown. Furthermore, Amazing rank Strength would have a Heavy Load capacity of 50 tons instead of 25 tons and require a mandatory Rank of Super-Strength.

Now for the most important part: Who is stronger than whom?
