"You can't have a list without Amadeus Cho. He's like Mr. Terrific, the only guy with a known rank so you *know* he places somewhere on the list."

You can't have a list without Amadeus Cho. He's like Mr. Terrific, the only guy with a known rank so you know he places somewhere on the list.

Very true, I forgot about him. I would probably put him above BP and Beast. I don't think he is smarter than Banner and Pym though.

Not a main Marvel guy, but methos' heavy hint reminded me of the Doctor.

And BP is close (but behind) Reed. Stop tryna hold him down.

Really Red Skull still? I don't think Spidey goes up there either. Not if this is the whole Marvel Universe.

  • Reed Richards

  • Dr. Doom

  • High Evolutionary

  • Mr. Sinister

  • Iron Man

  • Hank Pym

7) Amadeus Cho (just because Reed said he is the "7th smartest person in the world")

  • Black Panther

  • Beast

  • The Leader

I know you said it's not in order, but I want to make some kind of joke about The Leader being at the bottom of the list.

I would have Black Panther on the top ten, but i'm beginning to question his intelligence since the Evolution arc in Wolverine. But maybe i should question the writers intelligence..

Everyone (except insect) is forgetting Magneto, who is considered a genius in genetics, physics, and mechanical engineering. He isn't at the top, but he certainly is in the top ten.

High Evolutionary, Thanos, and the Leader all have SUPERHUMAN intelligence and are far superior (no matter how they are written) to anyone with "only" human intelligence.

That might make all the fans of people happy, but it's a bit more than the top 10 at that point.
