    Default Who is the best Detective in the DC Universe not named Batman?

    So we all know batman is hands down the best Detective in the Dc Universe but who is the Best Detective not named Batman? So maybe the second best Detective in The Dc Universe.

    Going to respond to my own thread because I didnt post this in my opening post.

    I would think Detective Chimp is up there. Not only is it in his name but I remember an Issue of Batman (Cant remember which one) Where Batman was consulting on a case with Detective Chimp. So maybe DC isnt the second best but Bruce does respect his skills.

    I would also guess that Riddler should be up there. Have there been stories that focused on his puzzle solving skills? I bet he could put all the clues together and make a great cop.

    Elongated man was also always shown as a smart man. I love the line in 52. "Plastic Man is the joke. I am the detective."

    The Question or Detective Chimp.

    I'd say Ralph or Bobo (Detective Chimp).

    The Question (Vic) is usually regarded as the runner up, but...

    Detective Chimp from JLD is good, and Brainiac 5 is good to if you want to travel forward to the 31st century.

    Ralph. For classic whodunnits (as opposed to tangled conspiracies), he's arguably on par with Batman.

    Bob's been getting a lot of attention in recent years. Personally, I think it's downright appropriate for one of the preeminent detectives in the DCU to be a chimp.

    As the best investigative journalist on the planet, Lois Lane has to be near the top.

    Ok, so what are some actual examples of Dibny solving mysteries and detecting that would make him runner up to Batman?
