I can't say that I actually have a favorite strength level as even infinite doesn't define what I like. What I enjoy is a type of strength. That which is constantly improving, now don't confuse this with infinite. Kate, in Going Super form example has this type of strength.

Kate's strength is finite at any moment given in time, that said it is always improving. Thus she is stronger the second after what she was the second before. Further more the rate at which her strength increases is always increasing as well.

For me terming strength as infinite really takes a lot of fun out of it. As I like for the super fem to be able to feel herself growing more powerful to know that she has become more powerful then what she was the moment before. Limited strength also isn’t any fun in my opinion as the super fem’s ever growing strength is one of my favorite subject matters.

Spending some thought on this, I realized that it might be less the absolute level of supter strength that is interesting in a story than the comparison between what is to considered "normal" or "not unheared" of and the strength the heroine displays.

In a world where no superhuman is known, a woman who can lift a ton is about as incredible as one with the strength of a hundred supermen would be in a superhero world.

So personally, I'd go not for an absolute level, but for how "super" the strength can be considered regarding the background.

And there, I'd say, outperfoming the strongest known being by a margin as that being would do compared to a normal person is the way. Sort of taking "super" to the next level.

Everyone confused by now?? :-P

LOL! As far as I'm concerned if a Super Uberbabe can carry a aircraft carrier in her bare hands or bench lift an oil tanker, thats good enough for me!! :lol:

Ya, I get what Anterion is saying. The amazement factor. It doesn't matter if it's you, me & a couple other fanboys watching a little hottie bench press a Subaru... or if it's Superman himself gasping in disbelief as his teenage cousin casually beats him in armwrestling. What many of the best stories have in common is the setup of a male protagonist being surprised, awed, & incomprably turned on by a woman with strength, abilities, & sexual powers that dwarf his own.

(... and +2 points IMO if she does it in a skintight lycra superheroine outfit!)
