I think Steel may be smarter than Bruce. Maybe.

Stark is probably on this list.

DC: Its been stated repeatedly that Mr Terrific is the 3rd smartest man in the world, so I go with:

1st-Batman
2nd-Lex Luthor
3rd-Mr Terrific


Marvel:

1st-Reed Richards
2nd-Dr Doom
3rd-Tony Stark

Good question!

It was recently suggested that in DC Mr Terrific is NOT the smartest... 2nd maybe! How do we define 'smartest' though? I'd say Luthor is more cunning than smart for instance and Batman is specialised in only certain fields with a basic knowledge of others unlike Mr Terrific who has diplomas & phd's up to his ears! Then there's the sccientists like will Magnus or proff Ivo who are superb inventors and experts... much like Ray Palmer or John Irons
So it's a difficult thing to judge accurately.

At Marvel it's a trickier proposition - Richards, Doom & Stark are the most famous but I could nominate the likes of Sage, Forge or Mr Sinister as viable contenders.... there's no clear answer as being smartest does not mean most infallible or least likely to be overconfident. Doom has a massive ego that lets him down regularly while Richards is often too overconfident or single minded to see other options :-/

I don't know if I would consider Forge for a position at the top three. His mutant nature enables him to just "know" how to build things. Don't get me wrong, I believe he's among the smartest men on the planet(Marvel), just not in the top 3. Probably not even the top 10. You have all kinds of peeps to consider: Hank McCoy, T'challa, The Wizard, The Mad Thinker...the list goes on.
