Just because Doom has clever feats doesn't make him the smartest. Same with Thanos. I say Richards as 1

Since science and evolution do run supreme in my book, I've got what popular vote seems to also have w/ Thanos being the smartest, then Reed and then Doom.

Dr Octopus is smarter than anybody else on the list. He forced Iron man to lick his feet and Reed Richards admitted he was smarter. However easily the smartest is Valeria Richards whos intelligence has been growing exponentially since she was three and is apparently now three times smarter than Reed she mercs everybody on that list.

Actually, wouldn't the leader be the smartest considering he actually had enough brainpower that he changed into a pure astral/psionic form?

In my opinion, I feel that most are looking at this question with different opinions on the word 'Intelligence'. I'm not saying that my opinion is correct, but here are my thoughts:

In pure problem solving, the ability to grasp new complex concepts, and learning speed: Reed Richards > Doom > Thanos

In raw knowledge, and ability to use that knowledge: Thanos > Doom > Reed

Social intelligence, manipulation, etc: Doom > Thanos > Reed

But there are so many other categories as well, and a lot of other characters are at the top of the list in their respective niches. I only used the three mentioned above because I believe they were the popular choices, as well as my top choices.

To me, Reed's quick grasp on new ideas and problem solving abilities put him ahead of the rest, but he's definitely not the most 'knowledgeable'.
