@Iju:

Its ''Luthor'' ;)

I dont know if it ever been said in the comics, but in the Superman movies its said he had an IQ on 200 and that was his retarded version, he seems smarter in the comics.

so i guess his IQ is the higher 200's?

- He got a perfect score and even corrected two mistakes on the test

- Like Reed, Stark, etc Lex's level of intelligence would not even rate on a standard scale

Probably the smartest human in DC, don't know how that translates in IQ but I bet it would break the scale

Likely this. Everyone's just lucky he has his ego as a handicap.

Luthor's IQ is well north of 200. He's the smartest human in the DCU. That includes Bruce Wayne. Wayne's IQ is around 210. So I would estimate at least 220+.

Luthor has a 10th level intellect. Lower than Brainiac (12th level) but much higher than the Earth average (6th level)

Over 9,000

Well, if you're looking for a specific number, IRL it would vary depending on what IQ test Luthor took. There are many, many different tests, and they tend to measure intelligence differently (for example, the Stanford-Binet test will likely produce a different number than the Wechsler-Bellevue test). And, of course, there is the issue that after a certain point tests fail entirely to judge intelligence- if a subject gets a perfect score in a section (or on the entire test itself) you only really know that they exceed the upper limits of the test's ability to judge intelligence.

Mind you, if 150 qualifies you as a genius, then 200 sounds about reasonable for Luthor (IMO).

i would put him in the 250+ if not 300+
