The genius of Tony Stark or the brilliance of Shuri or is it somebody else – who is the smartest Marvel character? Here is the answer
Shuri or Tony Stark – Who is Smarter between the two? This has been a hotly contested debate among marvel fans. Today we’ll decide who is the smartest Marvel character. While Tony Stark has been a prodigy since his childhood, Shuri was born with unlimited access to everything she wants. Both these characters are quite similar to each other as one’s achievements have been closely matched by the other.
The genius of Tony Stark
Tony created a robot as a child using spare parts from his dad’s workshop with its own Artificial Intelligence. He graduated from MIT with two masters degrees at the age of 19. Later he created the ‘Jericho’ missile which can destroy a few mountains, very casually.
He then suffered a heart injury from the weapons that his own company had manufactured. Out of a few parts from his various weapons, he created a mini-arc reactor, a virtually endless source of clean energy to power his heart. Not to forget that the arc reactor was originally the size of a small house. He compressed it into a device the size of his hand.
Later, he was able to make his suits remote controlled with his glasses as the remote(future of Google glass?). He created Jarvis – possibly the most advanced Artificial Intelligence. His ingenuity makes him a strong contender for the title of the smartest Marvel character.
The brilliance of Shuri
Shuri, the princess of Wakanda, is the youngest child and the only daughter of the late king T’chaka. Shuri has coveted the Black Panther mantle from a very young age. She has shellshock capabilities. She created the Panther Blasters and made a car that can be remotely controlled from countries away.
Shuri created an amazing forcefield (acting shield) that can withstand a whole spaceship crashing into it.
Well, so far, both these characters don’t stand apart from each other. So let’s compare the suits that they made for themselves to understand who is the smartest Marvel character.
Suits they made
The suit designed by Tony Stark was able to make a Titan (Thanos) with 4 Infinity Stones bleed. He also burst out unharmed from a spaceship that was thrown onto him. His armor is able to intuitively protect its user. As we observed when Tony’s helmet is broken into pieces by Thanos, only to be replaced by another part of the suit. Iron Man’s suit is also capable of producing multiple repulsor cannons, swords, and even hammers in situations.
The suit designed by Tony Stark is directly linked to his mind, hence, he can always tell it what to do. It is also capable of doing anything, till the point its given enough nanobots.
Though, on the other hand, Shuri’s suit is developed with state-of-the-art technology with the ability to resist shockwaves and send them back at will. Apart from this, it is undetectable by heat, sound, and electronic surveillance. However, it does nothing other than that.
Perhaps, Tony Stark-crafted Iron Man suit is much better as it has more functionality than that of Shuri’s. It is capable of performing various tasks. In circumspect of our debate – Tony Stark is clearly the smartest Marvel character.
