Top 10 Smartest Superheroes


9. Karnak

I’ve never been a huge Inhumans fan. They’re like, fine, I guess. But they’re no X-Men. However, I always thought Karnak was pretty cool.

First, he has complete control over his body’s autonomic responses which, as I remember from the AP Biology class I took, are your body’s automated processes like breathing (sometimes) and digestion (always). I’m pretty sure that’s right. But if it’s not, I dunno, this is a comic book movie news web site. If you’re expecting me to teach you biology, we should both be disappointed.

Anyway, Karnak’s intelligence is nearly unmatched. His special skill involves the ability to analyze anything in front of him and find its flaw. It is, to put it bluntly, cool as hell. And as one of the regular Inhumans, he gets a lot of chances to shine as one of the most combat-focused members of the team. But again, when your team leader’s main method of attack is “a very stern talking-to”, someone has to do the actual ass-kicking.

Karnak is a brilliant analyst. In fact, he's one of the best in that field.
