    Default Will Marvel ever have someone surpass Reed as the smartest man in Marvel?

    i wasn't going to do another "reed intelligence" thread, but its kind of been in my mind lately..

    i mean there were talks about Valeria being smarter..... and possibly Doom, but in all honestly do you ever see Marvel having someone surpass Reed as the most intelligent human in earth 616.

    bc Valerie is a kid. they would have to age her in some way to make it believable.

    Reed being the smartest due around is kind of his thing.

    plus, this 'smartest person aroudn" thing is all subjective. it isn't like they are taking IQ tests on panel or antyhing

    of course...but reed, like you said, has always been the worlds smartest man....its all subjective, but in the comics world their are rankings for everything and that includes intelligence

    marvel already ranked intelligence with the "eight smartest men" hulk comic....and i remember one panel where t'challa said he was ranked 8th

    so its not 100 percent subjective

    They can/will try but that's not going to last long term

    Reed is the smartest man in the Marvel world, and always will be, because that is basically his thing. There will be constant hints that someone might be smarter still, but it won't become the status quo.

    Reed will always be the top scientific mind.It's his role.It's like saying "Captain America will never lead a team again".
    " I am Loki Scar-Lip, Loki Skywalker, Loki Giant's Child, Loki Lie-Smith. I am Loki, who is fire and wit and hate. I am Loki. And I will be under an obligation to no one."

    Previously known as Nefarius

    Pretty much...

    Some characters will just always be at the top of some lists.

    Reed is the worlds smartest man.

    Hulk is the strongest there is.

    Shang Chi is the master of Kung Fu.

    I know it's kind of trendy thing to say, but...

    ...maybe it'll end up being T'Challa after the movies.

    Because of Fox, the choices are either Tony, Hank, Bruce, or T'Challa.

    I'd be cool with T'Challa, but it'll probably be Tony.

    Damn. Forgot about Tony. Due to RDJ's popularity, it probably won't be clear-cut as to who the genius is. I just hope they show that not only is T'Challa a very, very smart man, but he's a man of action. It's almost like combining Tony and Steve Rogers together. It's almost appropriate to have T'Challa debut in the Civil War movie because there will be a rivalry between Steve and Tony, maybe T'Challa falls in between their little spat.

    Tony is Marvel's big science guy in the movies, and may well become their big science guy in the comics some day. T'Challa is more likely to be treated as a combo of political mastermind, detective, and warrior than he is as the top science guy.

    Peter Parker is the permanent Underdog and Man Child.

    Wade Wilson the only source of comedy and randomness in marvel.

    Lately in the comics T'Challa being used mostly as a science guy lately. In fact much of the time he's being written as being smarter than Tony.
