@thebhramabull: A batman feat from unchained? we all know who wrote that, nice try.
New 52 Lex is not smarter than Batman;
Lex figured out who he is. Lex Luthor the biggest earth based villain in the dcu (no matter how much scott tries to amp up joker) learned who batman is. Not very smart for batman, what no contingency for that eventuality?. Oh and please don't blame Geoff Johns.
And you guys constantly proclaiming supes intellectually inferior to bats, haven't you read k4tzm4n's latest article? Now he knows what he's talking about and he paints both of them in a very fair light. And exploiting someones trust is not a sign of superior intelligence, unless your definition of intelligence is being a d!@k then yes i think we can all agree that bats is very intelligent.
