Yeah, I mean not for nothing, isn't he about on par with Captain America strength-wise? They put Hawkeye and Black Widow in and they're both more or less useless after a short while. At least spider man can pick up a fiat....probably.
Dude Spider Man is strong as hell. It's been like 15 years since I read any Spidey books but even I know that. http://marvel.wikia.com/Strength_Scale
According to this he can lift 10 tons.
That's pretty damn strong
The comics have his strength rating in the 10 ton range, but in a lot of media there are jokes about how strong he actually is. I remember in the 90s cartoon when he got the symbiote suit, he made a crack about how he could barely tip a station wagon before, and with the symbiote he was lifting armored trucks over his head. Cap's also in the 10 ton range iirc. (Edit note, I looked it up and I was wrong, he's 2 ton range at most)
Marvel's strength meters are a bit lame though. They have the hulk in the same class as the thing, but hulk's upper limits make the thing a joke.
