    Question Besides Valeria Richards, who is: THE SMARTEST WOMAN IN 616 MARVEL?

    This originally stems from the recent debacle of New Avengers lacking any females; and the misconception there are no uber-intelligent ladies in 616. So who do you think is the smartest woman in 616 Marvel? Do you feel she should be in the "Top Ten" smartest characters in Marvel? Should her status be official? Who do you think are the "Top Ten" smartest women (in order). This is a thread to praise woman in Marvel, and celebrate that there ARE many very clever ladies; who too often get overlooked/or seen as "not as smart as the men."

    N.B. I have discounted Valeria Richards because, as Reed Richards says, it's all "theory" not fact. She has the capacity to be the smartest person on the planet; but she is not, as yet, smart enough to eclipse Reed. If that makes sense? Anyway... who do you think is the smartest woman in 616 Marvel.

    THE MAIN CONTENDERS:
    • Alyssa Moy
    • Athena, Goddess of Widsom
    • Deadly Nightshade [Dr. Tilda Johnson]
    • Dr. Evelyn Necker
    • Dr. Kavita Rao
    • Lady Octopus [Carolyn Trainer]
    • Dr. Moira MacTaggert
    • Maya Hansen
    • Monica Rappaccini
    • Ruby Thursday [Dr. Thursday Rubinstein]
    • Sage [Tessa]
    • Starlight [Dr. Tania Belinsky]
    • Superia [Dr. Deidra Wentworth]
    • Thena the Eternal
    • the Witch [Dr. June Covington]

    Other wonderfully smart ladies, worthy of praise:
    Blackbird [Heather O’Gara]
    Danger
    Geiger
    the Genegineer [Dr. Sasha Ryan]
    Ion
    Dr. Jean Grey
    Kitty Pryde
    Komodo
    Miss Sinister [Claudine Renko]
    Mockingbird [Bobbi Morse]
    MODAM
    Moondragon [Heather Douglas]
    Moonstone [Dr. Karla Sofen, M.D.]
    Valeria Richards
    Dr. Veronica Chase
    the White Queen [Emma Frost]
    Yellowjacket [Rita deMara]

    it was easily Alyssa Moy

    Pym has admitted that Monica Rappaccini knows way more about biotoxins than himself. she's also smart enough to hold the scientist supreme title.

    there's that former SHIELD tech who Norman recruited to give him Super-Adaptoid powers. her science was then utilized by Hydra to create a bunch of hulks, giant-men, etc.

    "Toxie Doxie" (horrible name) also counts

    Not voting yet but I would lean towards Allyssa Moy, Deadly Nightshade and Maya Hansen.

    I went with Sage..She has unlimited upgrades. The others maybe smarter but Sage can process information quicker than them all.

    Advantage. MS. FOX A human with computer mind. 900 million Terrabytes. 100 Million RAM. Wireless. Photographic memory. etc.

    I'm sure plenty of Marvel women have impressive intellects on paper, but in practice they're pretty much all dumber than a box of rocks. Because we demanded it.

    Alyssa Moy last I heard was dead. But even if she wasn't I think that Monica Rappaccini is the smartest female in the 616. It pisses me off that they don't use more female super scientists or mad ones like her. Monica especially has a great back story and plenty of connections (potentially Bruce Banner's baby mama from before he went Hulk) that she should be a bigger deal IMO.

    And isnt comic intellect measured by objects created, with creating or bringing forth a new villain the penultimate expression of genius. (also destruction by way of intellect)
    REED---Marvel Zombies, resurrecting Galactus.
    Pym---Ultron
    etc.

    What has a woman done?

    Shouldn't Monet St. Croix be on this list somewhere?
    Storm and The Black Panther, T'Challa and Ororo

    It's foolish to hate characters for actions that are controlled by writers.

    If you don't like a character's behavior, blame the writer.

    Yeah we need feats. Objects created and foes crushed via the power of science.

    Marvel has not built their females up in this way and even the few they do are not consistently used.
