The Math: 10,000 tons = 20 million lbs aka 20,000,000

The heaviest item in the game is/are located at the Warworld chapter of the game, immediately after fighting the meteors at the begining of the game.

You are placed in an arene to fight some baddies, here you'll find buildings in the forms of "discs" stacked one on top of the other, these "discs" are 65,000lbs each and you'll find about 38 of them. Ignore the fight all together and start to pick these up and either A) throw them away, or my choice B) position yourself to let the missiles from the bad guy destroy the disc for you. With option B you can hover around and pick the next disc in the stack and rinse/repeat til the stack is finished, then move on to the next stack/building. Once done with all you'll probably have about 2.5million lbs. DO NOT QUIT, just let the guy defeat you and "retry", if you quit, you'll loose your progress.
How to get defeated fast? You get defeated by having your "crowd favorite" gauge at the top go all the way towards the picture of Superman. This will happen as the bad guy beats you down and depleats your stamina to knock you unconcious. To make go faster you can depleat it yourself by using superpowers which won't affect the bad guy anyways. This way the baddie will just have to hit you once to knock you out. It'll take 5 or 6 knockouts for you to loose

You'll need to do this eight times to gain 20 million lbs = 10,000 tons.

Option #2, if already well into the game is to visit one of the construction sites in the game and pick up/drop the I-Beams which will net you 11K lbs which will take FOREVER compared to the option above.
