@chazer76 Lex has a greater pool of resources, his tech outclasses Bruce's in addition to his intellect. If you give him a month to come up with a plan to kill Bruce there's no doubt in my mind he would.

I always saw Batman as the smartest person in DC with his moral code limiting his full brain power. Bloodlust will change that.

There are many individuals more intelligent than Bruce. His moral code has nothing to do with his thought capacity.

I'd have more confidence in pre-52 Luthor, but New-52 Luthor kinda came across as a goofball in Action Comics. But then again, he did recently build Hybrid, and there's also the zombie virus he came up with. His powered armor wasn't that impressive though.

I'd give this one to New-52 Batman, just because he's had more showings with the resources and tech at his disposal, and to my knowledge, Batman is a more seasoned fighter and tactician, while Luthor seems to be predominantly a plotter and scientist. I just don't think he'd be too used to actual straight-up combat.

Nothing is official really. Top 3 would be Bruce, Lex and maybe Mr. Terrific. Its your choice now how you arrange them.

I agree. It's just that the way you put it seemed like it was fact. I personally believe Lex is the smartest human in DC but to each his own I suppose.

Lex Luthor absolutely stomps......he has access to weaponry and offensive technology that not only rivals Batman's but surpasses it by quite a margin. For all of Batman's robotic suits, he's never had one that allowed him to fight evenly with a Superman level opponent. He has a robotic Superman suit but that only managed to scrap Metallo who's fodder when Superman gives a crap, Lex battled a serious Superman in space using a suit built from the materials of 3 different worlds (Earth tech obviously since his is one of the most advanced technological companies on the planet right above Wayne Tech, Star Labs, Cadmus etc... , Krypton tech from Brainiac as well as stolen Kryptonian Battle Suits and Fourth World Apokoliptian tech from previous deals with Darkseid). Bruce has similar access (Earth tech from Wayne Enterprises and it's partners like Queen Industries, Star Labs, Cyborg, and Mr Terrific, Kryptonian tech from Superman's Fortress of Solitude and Fourth World New Genesis tech due to his affiliation with Mr Miracle as well as trips to both New Genesis and Apokolips), difference is he rarely is seen utilizing Kryptonian tech and New Genesis tech offensively and against someone who almost always does and runs a business on interstellar weapon trafficking and making superpowers, hes tremendously outgunned.....

Luthor's gonna win BIG.

@rbt: Not Joker?

Joker is genius, no doubt. But he's not really in the same league of Bruce. His insanity makes it up for it though. Just like Lex and Bruce. Lex has no morals. That's why he created zombie virus. Can Bruce do it? Most probably. Will he do it? No. His morals does limit what he can do.

Lex has been stated to be the most intelligent human within the DC universe a few times. Bruce is not even in the top 10 behind people such as Terrific, Ivo, Sivana, Ray Palmer and so on.

Bruce is a brilliant tactician but his feats of engineering just can't compete with a lot of the DC geniuses.

Batman takes Insider suit, arms himself with boomtube glove, injects himself with venom to give him more stamina and healing factor and it's over. And does Batman has Green Lantern ring in Batcave?

Now this is just wrong. You can argue that he's not the most intelligent human in DC, but not in top 10? Nope.

Engineering only matters to some extent. Bruce is a great tactician. And Bruce is a great engineer. He's created some great machines. JLA bots, Insider and all that. Of course, he's not on Lex's level in engineering. But his tact and cunning outclasses Lex by a big difference. This is the reason he'll win.

How?

I'm sure such a feat is possible, given Lex Luthor's level of intelligence. He could tamper with the core or something. I dunno, none of us are Lex Luthor.

Lex Luthor once built a suit from a Kryptonian spaceship capable of destroying planets and powered it with hundreds of tons of Kryptonite. Batman gets stomped. Badly.

Batman Stomps easily, Luthor was owned by joker handily if I am not wrong, even with his equipment, Luthor cannot match up to batman with insider and he fan also use the new 52 venom since this is bloodlusted.
