Perfect picture to wake up some of my dormant powers of imagination, and hopefully others too.

As I see it, this is perfect for a nude warmup swim in molten metal, and then, coated and shiny, a chance to get a bit of a workout for the legs. 360 tonnes isn't terribly heavy for a Krypt, but it would challenge most Vels. Not sure how Wonder Woman would do, either paddling around or lifting, but I'm sure there are experts here who could comment based on their interpretations. 

In my world, even a Prima-class Velorian Scribe or Messenger would probably fail to get it off the floor. But a true Protector could easily handle it, parading it around over her head, using her power of flight to balance it, her body all shiny with metal from her swim and strong and filled with pride.

But alas, the poor Arion Betans, like Mona in Anonxyzus latest Kiraling episodes, would find the molten bath a bit hot, and it would probably take thirty of her sisters gathered around the base of it to lift it, but that's still impressive compared to human strength and toughness. 

But one thing about superstrength, at least as used against a normal person, it doesn't take much to be overwhelming. Someone three times as strong is essentially undefeatable without weapons. And someone 20 or 30 times stronger, like Mona in the Kiraling story is likely to be, would be instantly lethal in hand-to-hand combat or wrestling. A simple bear hug would snap ribs and spine.

It's easy to forget in our "sky is the limit" world of escalating superpowers, how incredible dangerous super-strength (combined with at least minimally bulletproof invulnerability) is compared to us poor Frails. Bending steel is one thing. Bending and breaking bones is quite another.

By the way, Anonxyzus also has Gloria in his Kiraling story, and she's an old character from one of my stories who is a Kella'Prime. Their strength is about halfway between a Betan (like Mona) and a Prime (like Janelle in his story). 

Here's my image of Gloria, a former soldier of the Arion Empire, who has deserted and is now working for the Velorians. She definitely looks like a Prime, and sometimes dresses like one, and she's nearly as lethal as one when she wants to be. She can't fly, but with those legs, she could likely jump out of sight in a single bound.
