"Esq." is more the acceptable professional standard.)
    A Juris Doctor is not the equivalent of a PhD. It's an advanced degree on par with a master's degree. There are also masters of laws degrees and doctor of laws degrees for those who already have a JD.

    If there was not an University of Latveria, he probably built one just for this purpose.

    If it's any doctoral degree (including law and medicine), I nominate Thor. Two Thors, actually. I leave it to the reader to discover how and why, but it really ain't that difficult.

    A medicinal doctor's equivalent to a PhD is called Doctor of Medicine (abbreviated M.D.)

    Doesn't MCU Jane Foster have a master's degree in astrophysics?

    You are correct. Richard Nixon, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all have had a Juris Doctor. The current united States senators who were lawyers have a JD. The entire SCOTUS have a Juris Doctor. Every US Attorney General since the 1970's have had a JD.

    Dr. Strange - has a degree in neurosurgery
    Henry Pym - has PhDs in biochemistry and entomology
    Dr. Octopus
    Curt Connors
    Professor X (Charles Francis Xavier) - has got a degree in genetics from the University of Oxford


    I don't know if Hank McCoy ever got any degree from a college.


    Peter Parker had a PhD in biophysics but it was revoked due to plagiarism

    Doctor Doom was expelled from university so he didn't get a doctorate. He's probably the only doctor without a doctorate
    Dr. Strange is an M.D., not a Ph.D. to the best of my knowledge. While it's always tough to figure out when superheroes have the time for education. I'm pretty sure Hank McCoy has a Ph.D. Probably has since before he was working at Brand (where he became the hairy Beast).

    That's right. A J.D. is not a "real" doctorate. (I say this as a lawyer.)

    I stand corrected. Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) is different from Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D).

    Professor Xavier gave Hank McCoy a PhD. As a teacher and professor, Charles Xavier may have been authorized to.

    Doesn't Amadeus Cho already have a PhD? I know he is young but he is already very smart, he could have earned a degree. In real life, there are kids Cho's age who earned a doctorate.

    616 Amadeus Cho is apparently a high school drop-out and is largely self-educated. You may be thinking of the Amadeus Cho from the Ultimate Universe who had like 3 doctorates.

    On a related note, I'm still waiting for someone to name whatever doctorate Marvel lazily gave Sue Storm.
    How can you give someone a qualification and not state what it's in? You can't say you did a good thing. How lazy.

    Thank you for posting this. You beat me to it.
