Whos smarterout of the two bruces?

#2 Edited by Koza101 (89 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Bruce Banner, given he is a Scientist and works on nuclear stuff... Bruce Wayne, Maybe supposedly the worlds greatest detective, but then again he has to use gadget's to help give him the answer.

Wayne becuz he was smart enough become rich billionaire in which a lot of women see him attractive,and he was smart enough not to become an ugly green hulking maniac that's constantly being chased by the military,hated by the father of the girl of his dreams,and continually locked in some for others protection.Also a lot of people view him as a pathetic wimp when he's not hulk(but I gotta say hulk is pretty awsome sometimes)

Although the question is very vague, I would have to say overall that Bruce Wayne is "smarter". Bruce Banner has a very specialized intellect focused on the area of nuclear physics. This is a testament to his well-above-average intelligence and brain capacity, but not much to his adversity. Bruce Wayne is not only a world-class detective, he is talented in the fields of: engineering, applied sciences, weaponry, multiple martial arts and other hand to hand combats, and many other specialized skills he has picked up in his travels. Bruce Wayne has an unwavering memory of everything he has learned all while keeping up peak physical condition. Bruce Banner is a smart man and a talented scientist, but in a battle of wits with the batman, he just doesn't match up.

Banner is Smarter. While Wayne excels in certain skills he could never accomplish what Banner has

Wayne was born in to his billions. Also Wayne turns away from love while Banner seeks it. Banner has proven he is a force to be reckoned with even when he doesnt or is unable to transform into the Hulk

@degraaf If Bruce Wayne put nuclear physics to his mind, I have no doubt that he would be able to master it over time. Saying Banner is smarter just because he knows more about a specific science than Wayne isn't a viable argument. I think that Bruce Wayne's capacity to learn, retain, and think quickly out match Banners.

@pandataur: your absolutely right. Wayne can basically learn anything in a short amount if time, he's extremely focused and is in well condition to learn and master anything. Banner is smarter in nuclear physics but Wayne is smarter in engineering, applied sciences, weaponry, battle planning, and the dude learned and mastered 127 different martial arts.

@xxedward_kenwayxx Thank you, I feel like Wayne's learning and retaining capabilities are much greater than Banner's.

Bruce Banner.

#16 Posted by AdamAnouer (239 posts) - - Show Bio

Banner because he makes the best use of what he has available in his universe without the added benefit of DC's cheat code science. And by that I mean Wayne has the stupid ability to adapt other worldly science and that should be far beyond him or any human to adapt to, not that Marvel doesn't do the same but they don't do it on such a grand scale. Banner wins.

#17 Posted by Jslayer11 (167 posts) - - Show Bio

I would say Wayne is. He is knowledgeable about a lot of things where Banner is knowledgeable but a selected few things. But still having either ones intellect would be amazing

#26 Edited by pandataur (33 posts) - - Show Bio

@myrongains I will agree with you that Bruce Wayne does not match the intelligence of Stark or Richards, but to say Peter Parker is smarter is actually funny. And as for Banner, I think that my argument above can persuade you that Wayne is smarter in the conventional sense of the word.

Yeah panda is right, Parker can't touch The Bat's intellect. I'd say Stark isn't as smart either if we are looking at it from a broad spectrum. He's a better engineer but that's about it. Batman is much more versatile between being a great detective, strategist, scientist, etc. Intelligence doesn't just mean math you know.

As for the question, I'd say the same idea as what I said above. Banner knows a sh!t ton about science, especially radiation, but not nearly as much on literature, combat strategies, ancient martial arts, and just random trivia Bruce can pull out of his @ss. I don't see Banner (minus the hulk) lasting a day in Bruce's world, but I'd bet Batman could do quite well in Banner's. Wayne's intelligence is just broader.

@comicsrulebutdbzdoes2: Parker made webshooters during his teens which is better gear than batman has ever made by humself

Lol!! No. Take a look at New 52 Court of Owls. Batman made a massive suit that was able to take down more than 20 undead assassins. One of them, was able to almost kill Bruce on three separate occasions. ONE OF THEM. Also, he was able to build another metal suit when he was more than 80 years old, to defeat Superman, in the Dark Knight Returns. Other Gadgets Include:

Grapple Hook, Explosive Gel, Sonic Disrupter, Firearms Jammer, Electric Batarang, Explosive Batarang, Remote Control Batarang, Retractable Claws, Gliding Cape, Camo mode on some of his more future suits (such as Batman Beyond), Cryptographic Sequencer, etc.

These are only SOME of the gadgets...The list gets quite extensive. So tell me again, how is some stupid web shooter better than ANY of those gadgets.

AND, how is an expert on gamma radiation supposed to stomp that? All Banner knows is gamma radiation, and to turn green and beat the living crap out of anyone around him when he gets pissed.

End Result: Bruce Wayne has the mind of a Genius. Bruce Banner has the mind of Hulk (as said in one of the comics, "There is no reasoning with him! He is a mass of brawn, and no brain!"

@myrongains:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Peter Parker?! HAHAHAHAHA! Dude, the best Parker could do was missing classes in college, be an ugly crier in the movies, and get surpassed in intellect by Gwen Stacy. So you're basically saying that Gwen Stacy is smarter than Bruce Wayne... Might want to rethink that one pal.

As for Reed Richards... I am the biggest batman fan there is, but Reed Richards surpasses Bruce in intellect.

Tony... I'm not gonna debate that, because I'm gonna get hate from both sides of the argument. My personal belief is that they are of equal intellectual qualities, though.

#36 Edited by koshi_waza88 (1505 posts) - - Show Bio

Intellect is divided into various forms, a chemistry, psychology, biology, physics, strategy.... there difference too much to have a way for them to compete against one another in anything that could be considered fair each is smart in there given field all you could really measure is what they do with those smarts and can they apply it to help themselves or others

Wayne is overall "smarter" I guess.

He is a genius in pretty much ever type of intelligence. Whereas Banner is solely a genius in like the science-y aspect, dealing with genetics, biology, chemistry, stuff like that.

In other words, Banner could teach a better science class, but Wayne could teach a damn good class in every subject possible.

Banner is a much better scientist while Bruce is a much better detective and tactician.

@sir_redhood: Bruce is smarter in nearly all aspects. They both have degrees in most, if not all fields of science and more. Bruce is also a master hypnosis and martial artist, and so his knowledge of the human brain and body could be more concise. And I believe that Bruce is a much better strategist, detective, and actor (he pretends to be a playboy and heavy drinker).So I give it to The Bat.
