intelligence wise, BP fanboys are saying he is just as smart as Reed?

#2 Posted by Veshark (9058 posts) - - Show Bio

Intelligence is hard to rate...I wouldn't put BP on the same level as Reed in terms of feats, but he might have that same level of understanding, at least.

#3 Edited by PowerHerc (83464 posts) - - Show Bio

No.

He never has been.

@veshark: BP fanboy alert

claiming t'challa is jsut as smart as what marvel has been saying the smartest man in the 616 for a long time (Reed)

People who say BP is close to Reed in intelligence are not "fanboys". They are pretty accurate. BP is very close to Reed in intelligence, but is not his equal.

Yes Stark and Pym are smarter than T'Challa. He is supposed to be the 8th smartest man in the world.

Wow, immediately label someone who disagrees with you as a fanboy. I've never seen that before.

And for the record, I didn't say he's as smart as Reed, I said he might have the same level of understanding because a) he's a genius himself and b) he has all the experience of all past Black Panthers now. At least try to get facts straight before you start pointing fingers.

People who say BP is close to Reed in intelligence are not "fanboys". They are pretty accurate. BP is very close to Reed in intelligence, but is not his equal.

Agreed. Close, but not his equal.

T'Challa might be a genius and helped Wakanda to become an advanced nation, but at his core, he's a fighter. A warrior, not a scientist.

Both Hank and Tony are thinkers, so it's not hard to see that they're smarter. They also have more science feats to their name, Hank with the Pym Particles and Stark with the armor and various other gadgets.

Correct. If T'Challa really applied himself, he probably could be equals to or superiors to people like Stark and Pym, but he's more focused on being a king and a warrior. Kind of like how Spider-Man has been noted to have the potential to be smart as Mr. Fantastic, but doesn't apply himself.

If you're referring to his fight with Tony, then that's where BP shines. Not intelligence in terms of science or engineering, but intelligence in terms of outsmarting his opponents tactically, in battle. He's a fighter first, remember.

The Quinjet was designed by the Wakanda Design Group, of which BP is a part of, but he can't take full credit.

Again, not saying that BP doesn't have science feats to his name, but he's more of a fighter.

Well, Black Panther did make a suit that absorbed cosmic energy based off of plans he stole from Doctor Doom. That shows that he has a lot of potential.

I think Black Panther was close to Stark before Tony got his Extremis upgrades. The Extremis virus amped Tony's intelligence so much that Mr. Fantastic (the smartest man in the Marvel U) was even surprised.

I would say so. Tony has too many armors to name (Phoenix-buster, Thorbuster, Bleeding Edge), Hank has discovered Pym Particles, and invented the size-changing formulae, Ultron, and he's the 'Scientist Supreme'.

But BP is not too shabby when he wants to be. Recently, him and Reed together made an anti-matter bomb capable of destroying parallel Earths.

@wolverine08 Oh, has that been confirmed? If so awesome, glad that BP is above Cho.

#37 Posted by MaccyD (4053 posts) - - Show Bio

@veshark: Hank helped with the Phoenix-buster but I hated that part as he didn't get enough credit considering quantum physics and cosmic stuff is his expertise.

Also how is the spidey-verse compared to these? I know they're nowhere near, but how high ranked are Doc Ock, Parker and Osborn? While I'm here Red Skull, Professor X , Doctor Nemesis, Beast and would Kang count? (He's human, just from the future, right?)

@veshark: ok so all in all t'challa is ranked 8th, and is close, but still below reed?

Essentially. Below Reed in terms of feats, but still very intelligent.

As for Thanos, I'm not too sure because I'm not really an expert....but apparently Thanos has spent much of his life learning about the universe, and amassed a great knowledge of it. Some have said his intellect is on the level of Reed or Doom.

Ah my bad, forgot about that.

I'll defer to my betters for the Spidey-Verse since I'm not too sure about those guys, though I do believe Osborn is more of a chemist, and likely not on the same level as say, Tony. Red Skull is intelligent in the sense of being a master-plotter, but he's not really a 'thinker', he tends to leave that stuff to Arnim Zola.

Xavier is a genius, but not quite an inventor. Beast was one of the eight-smartest MU heroes kidnapped by the Intelligentsia, so I assume he's pretty smart too. No idea about Kang or Doctor Nemesis.

I wouldn't say neck-in-neck, but just close enough. T'Challa perhaps has the capability to understand, and a fairly close intellect too, but at the end of the day, guys like Reed, Doom, and Stark have just accomplished more in terms of showing their intelligence. So I feel it would be unfair to put BP on the same level.

Ok where is this Official Ranking system located at? I always hear about it but I haven't seen it besides on comics mentioning it.

First I think it is a bit confusing when there are so many intelligent people in the Marvel Universe I think there should be some ground rules like

These are the Top 10 Smartest Humans from Earth in the Marvel Universe that way Thanos, Evolutionary, Ultron and the rest don't count.

As far as I know this is how it goes.

I. & II. Reed/Doom

III. Pym

IV. Stark

V. Banner

VI. Beast

VII. T'Challa

VIII. Amadeus Cho

As a rule of thumb, I'd be inclined to agree with this.

How does the High Evolutionary match up realistically? I'd be inclined to put him number 3 if he was allowed in.

EDIT: Actually. Wait.

Canonically, Sage is now the smartest person on the planet. Her computer brain is essentially omniscient, it downloaded all the knowledge of the entire multiverse from the Starlight Citadel. Moreover, she's arguably the fastest thinker, able to outpace even the Fury.

I've read that Osborn considers Banner to be the fourth smartest man. Reed has commented that Banner is smarter than Tony or Hank. But I guess since he Hulks out more, his intelligence isn't really put on display. That being said he is the MU's leading mind in gamma radiation, and a nuclear physicist. Waid's present run especially has really put Banner's mind on display. We have teleporters, Bannertech battle armor, force-fields, a lot more tech than BP has ever been shown building (to my knowledge).

@veshark: Yeah should have picked Zola, my bad.

The Marvel Intelligence Ranking System is really biased towards heroes though.

For example, Beast shouldn't technically be so far up as in an alternate universe (I know it's alternate, but still it "alternate" as in similar except for a few changes) Beast was taught/apprenticed by Mr Sinister. This alternate reality beast had roughly the same intelligence level as normal beast so it makes you think... I think the name of the reality was Age of Apocalypse? (X-fan would know better)

Also who'd have the most broad knowledge out of the geniuses?
