In film, he has been portrayed by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, ...read more.

While Iron Man has more knowledge in Technology and Science, Batman is an all-rounder in everything. He's clever, has great detective skills, good scientific knowledge and has a great IQ too. These all make Batman the smartest superhero of all time, - Kiteretsunu

He is a master of detective work, chemistry, technology and many more types of intelligence. He is also a supreme genius. - awesomeflip288

He is my personal favourite purely due to his determination as a sophisticated vigilante Iron Man was always snarky and self centered

Batman has a great tactical mind and in developing this man build justice buster and threshold suit he is a genius all the way

2 Iron Man Iron Man Iron Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as its associated media. The character was created by writer and editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber, and designed by artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby. He made his first appearance ...read more.

His power is literally the power of knowledge. He not only has the ability to learn things almost instantly, but he can also create theories and principles in his head. Tony Stark is not Iron Man. Iron Man was just one of his many creations.

Tony Stark is damn smart. Imagine creating a suit in a number of days with limited resources and as well his heart stuff all within the same period of time. This guy deserves the top vote no matter what Batman fans say. Put batman in his shoes and see if batman does any better.

This guy of all people deserves number 1. I don't care what batman fans say, they are just jealous of this guy's incredible knowledge. If we put batman in the terrorist situation Tony was in, he wouldn't have escaped. Plus batman doesn't design his own gadgets

He is the best. And the smartest. I mean, how can a guy create a robot which is more intelligent than himself and capable of global destruction.
He is genius, he built his first suit in a cave with a common man to assisst him. He created all the things he owns. He created a program or Artificial Butler (J.A.R.V.I.S) which can run his company, talk to him and do all sorts of things you want him to do. Man he is by far the most Intelligent or the most GENIUS super hero of all time.

3 Mr.Fantastic

Reed Richards isn t just the brain of the Fantastic, he has also developed a portal to send Galactus to a different universe with the help of two other heroes. - awesomeflip288

Batman, Hulk, and Iron Man may be smart, but Richards blows them all away.

An understanding of many different scientific fields, engineering, and diplomacy. This is your guy!

Reed is involved in all sciences, he is smart at all. most other heroes excel at a few.

4 Spider-Man Spider-Man Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics existing in its shared universe.

Spider-man is a genius and smarter than most superheroes and he's ONLY IN HIGH SCHOOL

He made a serum in the Amazing Spider man comic book that regenerates body parts. - awesomeflip288

He is the best cause he can do whatever a spider can and spiders are the smartest animal ever they are just robots

I love spiderman

5 Hulk Hulk Robert Bruce Banner, also known as The Hulk or Bruce Banner, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and was portrayed by Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A big misconception is that hulk is dumb. Not true at all. Calm hulk is similar to banner in terms of intelligence. World War Hulk has all of banners smarts, and has massive combat intelligence.

He has the intellectual skills and talents of understanding the concepts of gamma radiation and the tesseract. - awesomeflip288

Bruce Banner should be on here instead. Hulk only thinks about being mad. - Lucasw14

Banner, He is a genius but Mr fantastic is not a genius for real he is bore

6 Professor X

He knows everything, and he can see future also!

Enough brainpower to recreate the world the way he wanted to, instead chose to form the X Men

Come on! He can read minds. He can displace people's consciousness in different dimensions.

He is the invincible, inconceivable, incredible...

7 Ant

Other than being one of the heroes who transported Galactus into another universe, he is also creator of Ultron. - awesomeflip288

Hank Pym is one of the most intelligent characters ever to be conceived he not only is a master of physics but of computers as well

Shrinker

8 Black Panther Black Panther The Black Panther is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966. He is known to be the first black superhero in mainstream American comics and hails from the fictional African country of Wakanda.

Incredible Intelligence, Remarkable talent

This guy is the king of Wakanda the most advanced city in the marvel universe and guess why because of Black Panther I don't think Iron man can say anything like that as a comeback. If you saw him in Captain America Civil War he was bad ass. He is totally smarter than Spidey he should definitely needs to be higher

Black panther is super smart but I don't get how spider man is smarter then black panther and hulk in bruce banner form

8th Smartest person in the world of the Marvel Universe

The smartest make character in DBZ.

And probably the first powerful superhero in the fictional world.The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933.

Although the bat for sure is smarter, giving him a chance to fight against him, Superman is good at learning from his mistakes, or watching and learning from others. With this man of steal what lacks in strength makes up for intelligence.

I don't think he should be considered for being smart.

Superman is superintelligence. More than anybody could even imagine

Superman should be at first place!
This superhero is perfect in every race
He is smarter than any superhero!

13 Flash Flash The Flash is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. His first appearance was in October 1956 and was created by Robert Kanigher. His main ability is super speed through the Speed Force and can run at speeds exceeding light.

The Flash's brain can process things at extreme speeds, which makes him able to counter enemy moves before they even get close to him. He can read books super fast, which enables him to learn lots of things in seconds. He once ran all of the people in a burning building out onto the sidewalk, ran to the library to read hundreds of books, and used what he learned from the books to rebuild the entire building - all in a few seconds. He's mostly only known for his speed, and he should get more recognition for his creativity and ingenuity.

Flash is underrated when it comes to science and if I'm just clear I'm talking about Barry Allen not Wally west. He is basically the same as Spider-Man there about the same age who loved doing experiments and we're always straight A's

Flash is smart as hell, with his speedster abilities he can process information faster than anyone in the world because to him seconds are like hours at times, he should be at least in the top 10

He is the smartest superhero there is I mean he is a c.s.i agent and every time they defeat someone it has to do with science. - thalia_thatsme

14 Brainiac 5

He has TWELFTH level intelligence. Saying batman is smarter than him because he has legions of fans is like saying Nicki Minaj is a better singer than Susan Boyle because she's more popular.

'Brainiac 5 possesses a twelfth level intellect. By comparison, 31st century Earth as a whole is a ninth level intellect.'

No contest.

Is intelligent enough to figure out a cure for death.

Contest over, Brainiac wins!
