    MatPat Austin already proved Steve is the strongest video game character ever created. What’d he say? Quadrillion+ pounds or something like that without even being slowed down. Yeah, I think Steve can punch a tree

    5:55 You weren't going to break through that board, not because of strength but because to technique. The grain of the wood was being held vertically, if you had the grain of the wood horizontal then it would have been easier to break through
