so far all i know is that Mr. terrific is the the third smartest and thats it, what i really what to know is who is smarter than him. There are alot of people that come to mind, so on terms of intelligence who ranks what.

I don't know DC well enough, but I think Luthor is probably number one (for earthlings I mean).

Doc Savannah seems pretty smart but you also have that guy who created the Metal Men and his mentor.

Of course, Bruce Wayne is not an imbecile, but I don't think he ranks among the genuises.

@Wolfrazer: over all smarts, like the kind that has a plan for everything or can figure one out in no time, the kind that people look to for help

I think the Niles Caulder is probably in the top ten, if not at least the top twenty.

The level of intelligence between characters change with writers. I'll do my best to make a top ten list.

My Top 10

1. Genius Jones (Smart enough to avoid DC since 1947. He resurfaced briefly in 2007 and hasn't been seen since.)

2. Lex Luthor

3. Michael Holt (by definition)

4. Ray Palmer

5. Ted Kord (deceased or "napping")

6. Bruce Wayne

7. Dr. Sivana

8. Niles Caulder

9. T.O. Morrow

10. Will Magnus

Seems like a decent list.

If we're talking purely about subjects like science,enginbering,history,politics and other stuff that only includes using your brain Bruce and lex are top two and Mr Terrific is 3.After that I don't know. If your taking into account everything such as martial arts,street smarts and brain stuff like science then Bruce is easily number 1.After that it's too hard too say because you would have to compare martial artists like shiva to to lex which you can't really do.
