Battle: Chess tournament, everyone plays everyone else, best 3 games out of 5.

Contestants:

Bruce Wayne (the godamn Batman)

Lex Luthor (bald guy who loves real estate)

Reed Richards (stretchy dude)

Doctor Who (Time Lord)

L (from Death Note)

Rules: Everyone is playing to win, best 3 out of 5 games, 1 hour (per player) games, allowed to talk to opponent (within reason... i.e. no yelling, constant chatter, threats, etc.). Everyone has basic knowledge of opponents.

How do they end up placing?

As much as i like the other characters as well i think Luthor would come away the winner

I'd wager Doctor Who he is a walking dues ex machina of intellectual bad***ery

When it comes to manuvering pawns it would come down to doom and lex... Who would win?

*tosses a coin*

Doom

Doom

There's only one slight problem with your answer. I'll let you work out what it is. =)

When has he shown that ability?

Lex is smarter than Bruce.

Reed is supposed to be one of the brightest intellects in the Marvel U, but I heard Doom is smarter and Lex has been compared to Doom the most by most comicbook readers.

Don't know anything about Doctor Who, so I'll eliminate him right off the back.

It'll come down to Lex and L, both would be a tough out.

I'll go L just to be fair.

Considering it's a chess tournament, I'd say you assume correctly. =)

I'm thinking it comes down to Lex and the Doctor. I'm leaning to wards the Doctor taking this.

#19 Edited by Kinasin_ (1200 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman. I still remember when he called out Mr. Terrific for using some trick when playing chest blindfolded against two other jla members.

batman- he is second only to Lex in the DC universe, but he is a substantially better strategist

The Doctor.

Lex.

#24 Posted by emperorznb (1673 posts) - - Show Bio

Doctor Who takes first. Reed takes last.

#25 Posted by nickzambuto (13384 posts) - - Show Bio

I love how all the characters had something said about them that describes their abilities and potential to win, then L just gets "from Death Note."

#26 Posted by Strider92 (16252 posts) - - Show Bio

Doctor Who is definitely first that guy is insanely smart even by comic standards.

#27 Posted by Wonderbrezzy (221 posts) - - Show Bio

Doom

#28 Posted by beatboks1 (7141 posts) - - Show Bio

How anyone believes anyone other than the Doctor is winning this is beyond me. The Doctor has been thousands of years into the future and still finds the technology of that era simplistic. His mind is so far beyond any other contender here it's ridiculous. He's defeated galactic empires with shear brains. He has limited telepathy and psychic ability that gives him a very distinct edge. His MUCH greater experience (being over 1000 years old). is another. His brain is such that he speaks and reads billions of languages. He has the tactical knowledge of billions of words from every time period. He wont drop a singe game against any of these opponents. Anything that Reed, Doom, Bruce, Lex or L have ever done he'll be aware of. The Time Lords spent most of their time "watching" the events throughout the time line on all worlds (something the Doctor did for his most of his first regeneration - the reason that that one attained teh form of a very old man)

Im going with Lex, cus in Red Son he basiclly beat multiple people while read books and the only mistake he made was skipping a page. He was also said to be able to make Supes commit suicide by just talking to him.

@Enemybird: And thats the picture of the least smart one here. Heck batmans a better detective and fighter plus he can also invent shit. All the other ones are super scientists.

Bruce Wayne would come out on top.

Batman.

#33 Posted by NeonGameWave (7712 posts) - - Show Bio

The Dark Knight.

#34 Posted by GodDamnIronMan (1553 posts) - - Show Bio

The Doctor obviously... ...

Lex is close second.

#35 Posted by Dextersinister (5972 posts) - - Show Bio

Lex, he is written well so him being smart seems plausible. The Doctor isn't that smart and is backed by a shocking amount of PIS.

Doom wins even though he isn't even in this match.

Luthor get's my vote.

The Doctor, easily.

Since when was there a correlation between being a scientist and being good in chess? You're also mentioning that batman is a better detective? Why? That is debatable but irrelevant.

The Doctor makes everyone on that list look stupid.

@Enemybird: Cus he's always been known as the worlds greatest detective. He figured out Supes and Martian Manhunters weakness. Plus knew that MM was telepath right away. He's also an awesome Stratagist and has a backup plan for everything. Lex Luthor as stated in one of my other comments beat multiple people in chess while reading a book and learning a new language. DrWho...I dont know anything about him. L on the other hand let his enemy to close and got killed.

The Doctor wins this. His feats make him a multi-universe threat through out all of time.You would need to be Celestial or higher to have a better feat then the Doctor.

Bruce Wayne let his enemy too close and got his back broken.

Based on everything I've seen and read from Death Note. I cant really imagine a scenario in chess where L is unable to anticipate a move from his enemy/opponent. Its true that L was killed as a result of Light's tactics. But he deduced Light's plan to relinquish the power of "Kira" temporarily only regain it at a later time so your point is moot.
