This.  Steve held off (and at points looked like he was going to win against) a much better funded, better supported, and more numerous force in Civil War.  That's just one example, but I think Cap definitely is one of the best, if not THE best strategist in any comic book.

amadeus's hypermind can see all the quantum variables & outcomes to any situation.
he can literally come up with a master plan seconds before he needs it.

I don't think he's best, but Ultimate Nick Fury is pretty good. Of course it varies based on who writes him.

Doctor Doom, in any reality he is always the last one fighting against an impossible odds.

The editors suck, they only correct grammar. Writers come up with real strategies...

Dr. Doom; he stole the power of Galactus, then used it to steal the power of the BEYONDER in the seret wars!!  He stole Odin's power in the Ultimate Alliance game!!  He stole Silver Surfer's power in the Rise of the Silver Surfer movie!!

So-so. Ellis has a bit of a crutch when it comes to teleportation as a weapon, both in Planetary and his Stormwatch run. I see Snow as more of a detective. Agree about Tao. For me, Oracle is up there. Butcher from the Boys is a pretty good albeit rough around the edges strategist.  I'd like to see Destiny from Pilot Season: Genius in more than one issue so we could see just what she can do.

Ultimate Captain America. The serum enhanced his body And his mind.

#43 Posted by ForbushBug (496 posts) - - Show Bio
@Silver Knight75:  I consider Taskmaster and Midnighter to be more tacticians than strategists. They're good with the immediate battle they're in but I haven't seen a lot of long term planning from them.

Deadpool should be up there, he's out smarted lot of heroes.

Kingpin
Batman
Rulk
Luthor Earth 2 or 1
Doom (he juggles too many things but only he could do all the things he's got going simultaneously.)
Captain America   
Banner  or Fury
Raz 
The Leader
Grodd
And I know I will catch hell for this but I want to say Wolverine. Purely on the ability to sense BS and cut right to the source and taking it out.

Hands down no questions Vril Dox ( Braniac 2). Brilliant strategist, manipulator and master tactician. Who else could keep two galactic empires in check fro years with nothing more than a bluff.
