@monsterstomp: Yeah that ABC logic, A for Annihilus, B for Beyonder, C for Celelstials, D for Doom, E for Ego the living planet, F for Frightful Four, G for Galactus etc. when Gotham's in trouble call Batman. When the world is in trouble call Reed. Checkmate.
Reed has to outsmart Doom, Batman has to outsmart Riddler. There is no contest when it comes to intelligence between these 2. While playing chess Reeds multitasking, inventing, prepping, studying, creating etc.
