Neither Doom nor Kang are more intelligent than Luthor now who is explicitly the smartest being on the planet. Doom is not even second smartest being on marvel earth.

Marvel Earth is far more intelligent than moronic DC Earth. Being the smartest person in DC Earth is like being the most attractive person in a leper colony.

    According to DC database (not counting new players like Ozzie) it goes Lex as the smartest then Bruce, then Michael Holt (Mr. Terrific).

   The problem with Marvel’s view of intelligence is that Stan Lee as he has said in interviews was that he had no clue about science.
    In the 1960’s Tony Stark was able to build the Iron Man armor because it used “transistors”.  Peter Parker, a very bright high school student was enough of a mechanical engineer to design and build from scratch his web-shooters, chemist enough to develop the formula for the web-fluid and an electronics engineer to build his spider-tracers.
   The early comics had people like Hank Pym as a bio-chemist and physics genius to invent the Pym particles, but also a robotics engineer and software programmer to create Ultron.
   You might as well say that everyone on Earth-616 is automatically 25 IQ points smarter than anyone from anywhere else.

^^^that evens out though, w. how DC characters were shown to move planets around on chains.

Transfer those tendencies to the modern day, and you wind up w. DC having an edge in power and Marvel being smarter.

Leader-95

Ultron-75

Kang-80

If there's a question I can explain why they're ranked as is. But generally I rate people who inherited advanced tech or from the future a little lower than people who built their own. I also include not justpure knowledge of science but cunning, foresight, tactics and the ability not to sabotage yourself as a reason for their ranking. Otherwise LL and Doom would be closer in ranking.

LOL at my man Kang being impressed by idiot Luthor’s feeble forays into rudimentary time travel.

   Kang vs. Luthor on the subject of time travel is like the kid in the school science fair who’s dad did all the work up against the kid who did it all themselves.

Your missing my point. Leonardo da Vinci was considered among the smartest man ever born with an IQ estimated to be at least 200, but becuse he didn't have the equipment nor the knowledge of Enstein, Leonardo wouldn't have his knowledge of Nuclear Physics. Eventhough Enstein while quite brilliant he had ovr 300 yrs of sciencetific knowledge over Da Vinci. Nevertheless Eistein IQ has been estimated to be between 160-190.
