What makes something a strong acid?

A strong acid is one that pretty much completely disassociates into a proton and anion in solution. One example would be HCl, which just becomes H+ and Cl- in solution.

A strong acid is one that dissociates into its constituent parts (cation and anion) when dissolved in water

Strong acids also tend to form anions that are stable after it is deprotonated.

Does that mean that strong bases form stable cations?

What makes them strong is the fact that they completely dissociate into their ions (H+ and an anion) when they are mixed with water.

The ability to completely dissociate into solution and have two stable products in the solution.
