Maybe Mister Sinister ?? Look at this shit:
" Sinister is a genius with expertise in various fields of science, mainly genetics with years of his research at his command, mutations and their powers, human and alien biology, cloning, all levels of physics, engineering (including mechanical, genetic and electrical engineering) and more. His intellect has been said to match Reed Richards and Doctor Doom and he is one of the smartest people on Earth.
Sinister, having lived for over 150 years has acquired vast knowledge over many known fields, being a formidable scientist and a talented inventor. Considered the most brilliant mind of his time, Dr. Essex was already a genius with a PhD and an M.D and other honors in biology and genetics and was a member of the British Royal Society.
His intellect later grew to new levels after his time with Apocalypse and the advanced Celestial technology he had access to, mastering not only this and all technology from Earth (allowing him considerable expertise in cybernetics, robotics and computers) but also new sciences to aid him in his goals to create the perfect mutant.

1) Mister Fantastic - Usually considered the Smartest multiple times. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

2) I used Hank Pym due to him being considered Scientist Supreme by Eternity. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

3) Dr. Bruce Banner / Hulk. In a storyline where the Intelligencia* captured the eight smartest, he states he was the 3rd. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

4) Dr. Doom has been considered as smart as Reed. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

5) I added Mister Sinister because of the reasons SɦαŁ presented.

6) Tony Stark seems to me as thou he should be around this position. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

7) Amadeus Cho. Always been taglined as the 7th Smartest person on the planet. Intelligence Level is a 6: Super Genius.

8) Black Panther. Considered himself the as the 8th smartest. Intelligence Level is a 5: Genius.

9) Beast. Also was one of the characters captured by the Intelligencia. Intelligence Level is a 5: Genius.

*Intelligencia a group comprised of Marvel's smartest villains. Members included: The Leader, MODOK, Mad Thinker, Red Ghost and his Super Apes, & Wizard. MODOK replaced Egghead, who had died. Doom was also a member until he turned on them.


Intelligence Level 5 - Genius: Doctor Octopus, Professor X & Magneto
Intelligence Level 4 - Gifted: Spider-Man

High Evolutionary would be disqualified due to the fact that he evolved his own brain.
