Brainiac I is generally believed to be the most intelligent being in the DC Universe, possessing a 12 level intellect that surpasses even the likes Lex Luthor and Superman


Intelligence is the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria. While brawn is always helpful for fights, someone with brains may show superior.

There is no way to reliably quantify intelligence, and even these rankings are just suggestions and guidelines for pages. It is more important that a page discusses a character's intelligence and gives feats for their varying skills than have a solid ranking, though it may help with quickly summarizing their overall intellects and how they measure up to others.

Intelligence Levels

  • Mindless: Lack a cognitive mind having them lack cognitive thought. These beings normally repeat the same word or speak in incomprehensible words and mumbles.
  • Animalistic: Beings, that only possess basic reasoning, awareness, and problem-solving skills.
  • Mental Disability: Person below average intellects and unremarkable skills.
  • Average: Characters of average intelligence. While they have more developed intelligence in certain subjects, in many cases, their overall intelligence remains average.
  • Above Average/Bright: Characters that show greater cognitive ability than the norm, but do not particularly stand out in any intellectual or academic fields.
  • Gifted: Character that demonstrate high reasoning ability, can master concepts with few repetitions, and display high performance capability in intellectual, creative, or specific academic fields.
  • Genius: Genius level intelligence in one, or a few, areas of research. Individuals with an exceptional capacity for knowledge and intelligence, generally in one area of varying depth, often possessed by fictional scientists and strategists. An example of this level of intelligence are actual geniuses and famous intellectuals in the real world (Socrates, Stephen Hawkings, and, in lieu of better feats, should be the default intelligence category for fictional characters treated as if they have exceptional or superhuman intelligence. For Combat users this can be defined as being able to easily defeat other skilled warriors & learn techniques just from seeing them
  • Extraordinary Genius: Individuals whose knowledge spreads over many fields of science and who vastly surpass the intellects of the smartest humans on Earth. At this level, many are capable of creating futuristic technology and potentially even accurately predicting the future through sheer mental calculations, or outperforming supercomputers.
  • Supergenius: The highest level of non-omniscient intellect, possessed by those individuals with unfathomably superhuman intelligence and usually extensive mastery of most, or all, branches of science. Characters of such a scale tend to be super scientists capable of creating impossibly advanced physics-defying and reality-warping fantasy technology, and outsmarting even other extremely intelligent individuals
  • Nigh-Omniscient: Character knows almost everything in existence while being blocked from certain details or being limited in other ways, possibly only being able to see one timeline or universe, or have just small patches of information that are missing or blocked out.
  • Omniscient: Character is in a state of having all knowledge, or in other words, knowing everything.
