The Terminator, cyborg from the future, killing machine sent back through time, takes bullets in the chest without flinching, tosses bodies around as if they were rag dolls. Strong, yes, but compared with the pantheon of superheroes, what feats can he perform that set him apart? Never in the three movies does he demonstrate truly godlike strength; only the occasional fist through a wall and bullet through the back. His strength rises from tenacity, the
robotic single-mindedness that is his existential birthright. His physical power--occasional broken walls aside--is merely human-plus.
