    We've seen the hulk way above class 100 showings, im sure that others have showings high above that also(probably anyone who's ever held up a building) in your opinion is It a good way to rank strength? In other words why not class 500, class 1000?

...that people won't let go no matter what. Kind of like not being able to forgo the imperial system for the metric one I guess.

It was originally designed to be a literal system. class 10 meant 10 tons and so on up to class 100 that was 100 tons and up (what a worthless class if I ever saw one). 

Fans have made all sorts of tweeking in the vain hope to make the system work with comics, but  it resulted is a very subjective and arbitrary creature. Worse, people use that thing across the board as gospel truth force-fitting everything in it.

Now, if it wasn't already clear, I hate that system. 

It provides no real answers or even guidelines leading to rampant speculation, disagreements, and constant discussion. What more could a publisher hope for?
