well, considering the most weight lifted ever is 6270lbs (Paul Anderson, in 1957), I'd say its safe to assume that they could both lift far more than that source says. However, that amount of weight was lifted with his back (and legs). The most ever bench pressed without the aid of any type of equipment such as a bench shirt, was 715lbs. So once again, safe to assume they could both probably do better than that.

Honestly, I'd be ok with the idea of Wolverine being stronger than Cap, and I love Cap. Despite it never officially saying that Wolverines mutation has resulted in super strength, he is obviously far stronger than any normal human could ver be, especially considering his size. You could read almost any comic he's in and infer that. He's really done some pretty ridiculous feats of strength. Thats not to say that Cap hasn't as well, cause obviously he has. But we know for certain, as in it is explicitly stated that Caps strength is not and can not be superhuman, whereas we don't know what the limit on Wolverines is. Seeing as how Deadpools mutation is derived from Wolverine, and Deadpool has superhuman strength, it would be pretty safe to say that Wolverine does too.

the strength measurement is supposed to be the amount of weight a character can lift with straight arms over their head.

i personally think cap should be rated higher, basically because he has been able to knock hulk around a bit. considering hulk has been hit by cars without flinching, the rating seems a little low.

and i know these ratings do not always show like this in comics, but it is supposed to be the official marvel classifications. if a writer asked what the characters are able to do, these are the stats they are given.

Well in Wolverines first appearance he went toe to toe with Hulk AND Wendigo, and knocked them both around a bit, so I'd say that comparison is null.
