How smart is Despero?

I know he's a physical powerhouse, but does he specialize in intelligence too? I'm sure he was pretty cunning at least in his pre-flame of pytar days (before he beefed up), but has he shown any intellect or cunning in his existence that can put him up there with some of the other big intellects in Marvel or DC?

When he bathed in Py'tar, he was yet intelligent, and with vast matter manipulation powers. But Vibe destroyed the Flame of Py'tar replica (Justice League of America #254). After it, Despero returned, years after, in Justice League America #37, as a mindless rampaging monster. I think Despero became less intelligent, as a side-effect of Py'tar destruction.

I think Despero is one of the smarter JL villains. He used to play cosmic chess in the older issues.
