What? No way, I am clearly a genius for recognizing sexual innuendo within your quote.

Man your so amazing. You said an incredibly common stereotypical sexual innuendo. You should really get a cookie.

There was a similar discussion to this last week...do we mean IQ intelligence, ie BOOK SMART?

If so, then it's easily Brainiac 5.

As much as the DC fan boy in me wants to say Lex Luthor or Braniac, I think that Dr. Doom has shown more feats of genius over the years.

I believe it would be Darkseid. His intelligence stretches to more than just I.Q. In his ever searching quest for the Anti-Life Equation hes gaining more and more knowledge as he progresses.

Marvel: Doom

DC: Brainiac.

The TVTropes article for "Magnificent Bastard" has a long list of comic book examples:

There's also an article for "The Chessmaster" that includes it's own list of examples, including some not mentioned on the above list:

And then of course there's David Xanatos after whom was named the "Xanatos Gambit" page. He's a cartoon character, but I believe there was a comic book tie-in to Gargoyles.

It's definitely between Doom and Brainiac. So each company has their own, and everyone can be happy.

If they were intelligent, they would know good always wins in the end.

@The Man of Yesteryear: You got a follow from me. :P

Also, I'll say Joker, just because nobody else will. He's, in a way, TOO brilliant, so that not even he is totally sure what he's figured out. :D

Bastion is somewhat intelligent. His plan to eradicate all known mutants in Second Coming was quite impressive, in my opinion. Had certain sacrifices (Nightcrawler, Cable, etc.) not been made, his plan probably would have worked.

I think Thanos has very great plans too, very intelligent villain

@Ms. Omega: Definitely my pick as well.

Brainiac. That's his entire shtick!

Korvac is definitely somewhere in the running.

There is a reason as to why Brainiac got his name.
