Human/Mutant/Hero:

  1. Reed Richards

  2. Hank Pym

  3. Charles Xavier

  4. Tony Stark

  5. Bruce Banner

  6. Peter Parker

  7. Victor Von Doom

God/Immortal/Other:

  4. High Evolutionary

  5. Ultron

  6. Mr. Sinister

  7. Sauron

  8. Apocalypse

  9. The Leader

  10. T'Challa

Thanos is not a Marvel entity, though as far as intelligence goes he would be extremely high on the list.

Hank Pym is smarter than Tony & Doom?

Thor is smarter than everyone under him?

I don't think that Thor would be at the top of the list when it came to the higher intelligence of immortals/gods. He's in there, but not that high. Honestly, I would say that Sauron would at least be above him.

And for all that Peter Parker is intelligent, I think that Doom would most definitely be ranked higher simply for the fact that he is consistently utilizing his intellect; not to say that Peter isn't but it takes a lot of plotting/planning to be a bad guy. ^_^

Cap isn't smarter than anyone named in this thread.Spider-Man,She-Hulk and DD are smarter than him and they aren't even mentioned.

also its important to note the different kindas of smart....not just science smart.

you fail to understand....the big brains follow him. I am not saying he smarter than this person or that person. However he should be given credit as being the one man smart enough to lead the whole marvel U.

he thus should be among the smart list.

Wrong. People don't follow Cap because he's smart.Leadership has nothing to do with intelligence. You can't teach that. Cap is fairly intelligent but his leadership quality came with experience not intellect.

Assuming you are ordering this the way you think it would be.I would have to say Reed has outsmarted Doom on several occasions.

Leadership has everything to do with intelligence! No one will follow a leader who isn't intelligent! At least no one with a portion of some functioning brain cells!

You don't get it.What I am saying is...CAPTAIN AMERICA is not a genius.Leadership qualities are most likely to grant you the title of leader then you intellegence. For Instance...Kobe Bryant is the leader of his team. Kobe may not be the smartest person on the team but he does know the game fairly well with experience and just overall talent.Kobe is not a genius.So what I am saying is that,it's not that leadership has nothing to do with intellegence, but it has very little to do with it at the same time.You can be a leader without being smart.

Not in a particular order

Doom

Reed

Both Hanks(McCoy and Pym)

The Leader

Banner

Stark

Magneto

Sinister

High Evolutionary

Forge

Cable- I am shocked that only Colt Python touched on this. He not only has smarts from the here and now, but the future as well. Marvel has said that he is on the same level as Reed Richards.

now this is most certainly not a complete list, but when I think of smart people, I think of these guys.

its very odd that only 1 person has listed the Mad Thinker, a guy that reed richards used to check his work.

#80 Posted by Static Shock (47329 posts) - - Show Bio

The smartest of them all would be:

One Above All (He knows all)

The rest aren't in any order...

Black Panther.

Reed Richards.

Iron Man.

Hank McCoy.

Hank Pym.

Magneto.

Thanos.

Dr. Doom.

Can't think of a tenth one.
