Wolverine's intelligence

Everybody talks about Logan's fighting skills or his healing factor. But where is Logan in terms of intelligence? I know he's not a super genius or anything but has Wolverine done anything particularly brilliant?

I think I remember a scan of wolverine saying he can play 5 people at once during chess.It's a really vague memory. I don't know if it's real.

He should be quite smart due to his advanced age but usually comes by more as wise. He usually play's wise grandpa to younger X-men like Jubilee and Cannonball. I would say above adverage nothing spactacular.

He has a ton of experience and education. Interestingly enough, he also has excellent memory.

I dislike that the writers made him a genius. He always came off to me as average when I read classic uncanny.

@moywar700: Yeah he came off as being between a caveman and a red-neck in intelligence back in the day.

I Do you mean this (Wolverine 51)?

I think you should never underestimate him, although he normally comes across more muscle than brain. I think you need some smarts to survive in his line of work...

On the other hand, I hate it if a character is idolized just because of fame. In that regard I completely agree with moywar700. He isn't a genius.

I like my Canadian plan and tactically wise but generally average with perhaps a slightly higher IQ than average.
