This is no surprise to anyone, the super intelligent Titan of the Marvel universe is a genius at least. He has created great technology which supersedes any Earthian tech. by far. Not just that he can also perform telekinesis and it was he who created his own chair that allows him to travel anywhere in the universe.
This guy was a scientist even before becoming a villain. DOCTOR Doom has a great intellect. Not just some ordinary inventor, he’s invented tech such as the Doombots, was responsible for disbanding the Avengers, sent the Baxter building into space and many more things.
The superhero turned villain from DC’s graphic novel ‘The Watchmen’ is someone who can be real good at planning and be strategizing. Not just that he was able to detonate a bomb killing everyone in New York, doing this although with having someone like Dr. Manhattan with him at the time.
