Buzz Lightyear can usually be found loitering around outside his Space Ranger Spin ride in Tomorrowland

Buzz Lightyear pulled a bait on switch on us, urging my son and I to flex our muscles and then pulling the Fonzie thumbs up pose (a timeless classic you can see duplicated here).

Superman flexes his biceps. So does Popeye and the Incredible Hulk.  But since when is Buzz Lightyear Mr. Strongman all of a sudden?

Buzz’s strength is presumably derived from his space armor and his space weapons.  He could be the scrawniest space ranger ever under the suit.
