I don't know about that, if you use Strong to lift a creature, you can only match it against a rating like Large/Big. Likewise, if you use a size Ability like Large/Big as an augmentation , say as a defensive Edge (big things are harder to hurt), it has to be one rule for all. Obviously this is ignoring truly Heroic abilities, beyond any mortal human, but I wouldn't allow anything that LOOKS human to have a Large over about 10-12 - Large means it looks like a big one of whatever it is. Tough, hard to Hurt, etc. possibly, but not Large/Big. At Large 2W2, a Human is the size of, approximately, a 6m Giant.
