Brainiac 5

Brainiac 3
TO Morrow
Metron
Luthor
Caulder
Magnus
Ultra-Humanite (honestly as the original Superman villain he has feats even better than Lex in science, and has outsmarted Supes multiple times)

Metron should be higher (above Brainiac 1).

Brainiac 3 is also above 2
Lyrl is a 12 level genius like his grandfather, Vrill II is a 10th level. Yes Vrill II has beaten both more than once, but that isn't because he has a greater intellect overall, it's because he's a better psychologist and more manipulative bastard than both

Ultra doesn't have better science feats than Lex,.
In many areas of science Lex is well above him.
In medical science Ultra would be above and maybe in time travel technology.
That's only two areas of study to many more that Lex has excelled in to levels above Ultra (one of Ultra's first appearances he even states on panel he was crap at making robots as I recall).

As others have said, I do think it is a combination of speed reading and just overall enhanced intelligence. You also have to take into account his super senses I think, because he can detect some wacky stuff with those, and I don't know..surely that would come in handy? He also is at times portrayed as stupid. It bugs me the same way some people think he has no fighting skills and is just a brawler, but that isn't necessarily true either.

The problem is he has so much power already that if he outright refines that power to its highest degree you are left with an even more unstoppable character. You also then begin making other members of the JLA obsolete.

But yeah DCnU version read every single medical book on Earth. You see because in the DC universe a single hospital somehow has a selection of every medical book ever.

Because every thread has a shelf life. This one, for example, is going to get moved very soon.

More troublesome threads get closed more quickly.

That's what I thought, but you all closed a thread I started yesterday that had both good contribution and not a hint of a problem, unlike so many other threads. The one about which D.C./Marvel character would most change the landscape in the other's universe.

He can be smartest being in DC universe in theory.
For example, In Redson, Even Bizzaro has defeated luthor in Chess game.
But He doesn't use his intelligence for plot.I think
