    Probably Lex, his own ego just gets in the way.

    Probably followed by Mr. Terrific, The Brain...

    I like the idea from Justice League Action that Mr. Terrific writes those "Smartest People Lists" and deliberately ranks himself lower than accurate so that people like Luthor will underestimate him.

    So maybe I think it's Michael Holt!

    Nah, it's Brainiac Five, hands down. But I like Holt up there on comparable ground with Luthor!

    Well, according to Doomsday Clock it's either Bats or Lex, which makes sense, IMHO.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    For the record, I hate both of these. Not saying it's not currently being written that way. But it's not a direction I like with either character, at all.

    Batman should never be the smartest person on earth.
    Thats fucking asanine and character shilling of the highest level. Luthor ? Maybe. His whole schtick is to be the Brains to Supermans brawn. But Batman ? Fuck off.

    Brainiac

    If it's just human, Luthor

    The New 52 lineup for smartest people trying to cure Superdoom is Luthor, Batman, (I forgot if Holt is included since he transferred to Earth 2 at some point), Ray Palmer, and Cyborg (instant internet download)

    Wait, so just to clarify, you don't think Bats is the smartest, right? Just want to be clear.

    I don’t think their should be a clear cut smartest. I also don’t think their should be a clear cut strongest or fastest. Ambiguity is way more interesting then certainty in fiction.

    Exactly. According to DC, Batman is just the bestest at everything... No thanks.

    Lex works better because that's his whole game, his brains against the most powerful person on Earth.

    If I had my way it would be Mr. Terrific as the smartest man in the hero column. Lex Luthor the smartest man in the villain column.

    I'm of this mind, with Cyborg being a potential cosmic level intellectual on the level of Brainiac and thus would eventually be the smartest human to ever exists.
    SIGNAL/Duke Thomas is the Midnight Sun of Gotham (respect thread)
    John Stewart is my Lantern.
    Naomi was great, pass it on...
    DC: Batman and the Outsiders, Justice League, Teen Titans, Deathstroke, The Flash, Justice League Odyssey, Doomsday Clock
    Marvel: Immortal Hulk, Miles Morales: Spiderman, Black Panther, Ironheart, X-Men (2019), Venom, Avengers
    Anticipated titles: Far Sector, Love Army*, The Other History of DC*

    Cyborg and Brainiac have the benefits of their tech to boost their processing power and information storage. Although Vic Stone was a fairly smart dude even before his accident if I recall correctly, even if he was prized mostly for his athletics.

    But as far as natural intellect I think it's Terrific or Luthor.
