Sometimes a character needs to demonstrate his or her strength by making some poor schmuck feel helpless. The standard method of demonstrating SuperStrength is to grab the victim by the neck with one hand and pick him up. If you want to maintain a slight atmosphere of plausibility, you can then slam him up against a wall. To be truly badass however, you should simply hold him in mid-air. You may even decide to [[MinionMaracas shake them a little bit]].
