I think using the numbers as tonnage is incorrect. To me, Class 100 doesn't mean 100 tons. Class 100 means one of the top classes - able to lift a tremendous amount of weight. When we see Thor lift a mountain, it's obvious he's lifting substantially more than 100 tons. Only Class Incalculable is higher and is reserved for beings whose strength cannot truly be measured. Because of his variable strength, the Hulk is in this class. How do you measure the strength level of someone who's strength can increase? It's not possible.

And I consider these classes to be based upon physical strength, not the ability to affect gravity, magnetic fields, or manipulate energy. To me, these are different forms of energy projection.

The thing is class 100 characters have so many strength feats many times exceeding 100 tons, it makes it silly that a 95 tonner could even remotely touch these beings. It would be like a NFL lineman fighting a 1 year old baby. A few examples of this are:

When Gladiator lifts The Baxter Building

When Hulk holds up a mountain

When Sentry catches The SHIELD Hellicarrier

When Thor lifts The Midgard Serpent

When Hercules hauls the Island of Manhattan

When Hyperion stops two worlds from colliding.

When Namor flies carrying a battleship
