    Would you say Evelyn Necker and Carolyn Trainer should be in the "Top Ten Smartest Women" list?

    She is one of the best neurosurgeons in the world (if not THE best); and her knowledge of radiation, surely makes her polymathic person?

    Top 10?

    Truthful, MODAM and Blackbird (and Moonstone) were due to their high-rank in Superia's Femizons; but I thought Blackbird built a lot of her armoury?

    LOVE this article about Moonstone, absolutely fascinating. But comics have referenced her being an M.D. It's fair to say she is; or has become one in her time.

    Sorry, I'm quoting myself; but I want to make a thread about "Who is the smartest Marvel female" but I want as much help as I can get, before I do it (so I don't miss anyone out). Any thoughts on who should be higher or lower; to make it into the poll? Cheers in advance.

    Sage would be in the top bracket, not the third. Highly advanced mental processing power is her primary mutant ability.

    The character Xina Kwan in Spider-Man 2099 is considered to be as smart, if not smarter than Miguel O'Hara; both are child-geniuses if I remember correctly, Xina in specific excels in programming all types of machinery and A.I. and works for Stark-Fujikawa.

I either completely forgot about Chord being the father (I never re-read my New Warriors collection), or I didn't go that far into the series.
    IIRC, it was revealed when they told the backstory of Tai and Chord in that storyline that revealed Tai was evil.
