IN INVENTIONS AND SCIENTIFIC MARVELS
OUR TOP 10 LIST OF MARVEL’S SUPER-GENIUSES BY INVENTION (NO ONE-ABOVE-ALL OR ABSTRACT)
Generally, our formidability takes into account a character’s quality of opponents. Using this hierarchy, we can formulate a Power Hierarchy. Namely, it is the following:
Peak Human, Assassin, Metahuman, Criminal Mastermind/Team-Wrecker, Warrior, Hi-Tech Genius/Enhanced, Political Leader, Demon or Monster/Supernatural Being, Champion, Cosmic Being, Skyfather, God or Abstract.
Before we rank the Top 10, let’s list some rules.
- First, only beings below God or Abstract are included. God or Abstract include Galactus, Eternity, Living Tribunal, Beyonder, One-Above-All.
- Since we focus on feats, we will go by inventions or planning only.
- Different races in the Marvel Universe are included such as the Eternals, humans, Inhumans.
Let’s rank our Top 10.
10. PROFESSOR XAVIER
What seems like a benign invention has actually changed the course of Marvel history. Namely, Professor X’s Cerebro is actually an E.S.P. device that helps him locate good and bad mutants.
Generally, though telepathy is a super power in the Marvel Universe, we can count it as super-genius intelligence. For the reason that being granted access to the secret thoughts and desires of men is definitely a god-like ability or super power.
Furthermore, Professor X has the intelligence to show for it. As matter of fact, an expert in genetics and the life sciences, the Professor X has shown remarkable scientific ingenuity s well as planning in combat situations.
Definitely, I would not want to mess with someone who once defeated Phoenix in a psionic battle!
9. BLACK BOLT
When detonated, the bomb would cause all humans to undergo Terrigenesis and become Inhumans. Definitely, a nightmarish thought!
8. BLACK PANTHER
As matter of fact, Black Panther is really a super-genius. Early, T’Challa earned a PhD in physics from Oxford University. Generally, Black Panther is a master tactician, problem solver and inventor.
During the Doomwar, T’Challa revealed he combined his knowledge of physics with alchemy in order to create new scientific discipline: shadow physics.
Now let’s move onto an actual scalable feat. During the Incursion in Secret Wars, Black Panther actually helped design the life raft. Moreover, he also designed an inter-dimensional planet-busting bomb!
Generally speaking, T’Challa is rated among the eight smartest minds on Earth. And he deserves it!
In his Top 25 Smartest list, Victor Grubbs at CBR.com calls Beast a Renaissance man. What makes Hank McCoy stand out is that despite his blue monster appearance, he is very intellectually gifted, a man of culture and letters.
In the intelligence department, Beast is among the eight smartest people on Marvel Earth. Namely, his expertises in medicine, anatomy, biophysics, electronics, biochemistry and genetics are at the top.
Among his most remarkable feats is his discovery of the hormonal extract that causes the X-gene. In addition, Hank discovered a cure to the Legacy Virus that devastated the mutant population.
6. HANK PYM
Without a doubt, Hank Pym is a revolutionary mind in the Marvel Universe. Really, there was hesitation as who has been the more inventive mind between Ant-Man and Iron Man. Later, we will see why Iron Man deserves the higher spot.
Among the most inventive minds on Earth, Hank Pym has been called by the Abstract named Eternity, “Earth’s Scientist Supreme.”1 Really, his discoveries have been ground-breaking.
Thanks to the Pym Particles, he discovered the Microverse by shrinking to subatomic scale and the Macroverse by increasing his size near infinity.
Though he is a super-genius, his attitude and his most important malfunctioning inventions – namely, Ultron – have prevented him from succeeding. Often times, he has been considered a failure. Read our Avengers: Rage of Ultron product review.
5. IRON MAN
For the most part, Tony Stark is a businessman, a public figure and an inventor in the Marvel Universe. Importantly, he is well known for his Iron Man armors which have continually evolved over the years in response to threats and personal challenges.
Two reasons why Iron Man has succeeded where Hank Pym has not: his inventions have successfully revolutionized business and he has recovered from addiction.
4. BRUCE BANNER
Generally, BannerTech is developed in order to solve a problem. Regularly, Hulk is hunted by the authorities, the heroes and villains. To this end, Bruce’s expertise in gamma radiation has enabled him to create devices for teleportation, force fields or hologram projection.
For the sheer ingenuity of his inventions, Dr. Banner belongs near the top of this list.

Certainly, Thanos needs no introduction. Indeed, his villainy, intelligence and resources make him a fomidable foe. Importantly, Thanos’ inventions are for a single purpose: universal destruction!
In Annihilation, Thanos proved why he may be the Marvel Universe’s most dangerous foe. After Tenebrous and Aegis captured Galactus and Silver Surfer, the captured were turned over to the Annihilation Wave.
Dangerously, in order to help Annihilus conquer the Prime Universe, Thanos imprisoned Galactus to a bomb that was absorbing the energy he was feeding on. And the ultimate purpose was to destroy the Marvel multiverse for the Negative Zone.
2A/2B. REED RICHARDS/DOCTOR DOOM
Not much needs to be said about these two rivals. As matter of fact, Mister Fantastic is ahead of Doctor Doom, especially in the science department. Overall, they are in a league of their own. And that says a lot.
1. HIGH EVOLUTIONARY
Among the Skyfathers in Marvel, other than Odin, Zeus, Mephisto and Thanos, High Evolutionary is among the greatest scientific minds. At his highest, High Evolutionary is able to predict the universe from beginning to end.
Where High Evolutionary outclasses every super-genius on the list, is the fact that he has used science to actually create life. Moreover, he created Counter-Earth where Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch travel in the comic.
And that’s our ranking! Don’t forget to leave comments if you liked the Super Power Explained.
