Being able to lift 15 tons puts you in the "class 25" range which is anywhere from 11 to 25 tons lifting capacity. It kills me every time I read someone messin' this up!

Sure, never mind that its needlessly complicated and downright misleading to have a system that lumps the guy who can lift two tons in with the robot that can lift ten (though still better than the current one which lumps them both in with the woman who can lift twenty).

I think I’ll stick to doing it the “wrong” way and listing people’s “classes” as what they can actually lift. In Peter’s case the most recent Handbook says that’s twenty tons. The one from two years ago (Post Disassembled but Pre-Other) said fifteen tons. Classically he’s been able to lift ten tons but that was back when the “Spidey gets new powers” stories were more rare and didn’t tend to stick.

You can do whatever you like of course, but the problem with that is if everyone does it their own way, then when it's time to discuss or debate, no one will be on the same page. We can be engaged in a debate and we're not even talking about the same thing!
