    The MCU version of Shuri's intelligence is over exaggerated compared to Shuri in the comics, in the comics she's not ever been described as the smartest person on the planet.

    “Shuri is the smartest person in the Marvel Universe. She is the sister of T’Challa, a princess of Wakanda, and she is the brains behind Wakanda’s incredibly advanced technology,” Russo said.

    Tony is the best mechanical engineer in Marvel, how good his current tech is isn't an accurate gauge on how smart he is. T'Challa's tech was better because Wakanda had basically a 100 year head start on the rest of the world, ditto Rocket, who had access to more advanced alien tech.

    Tony built an arc reactor in a cave with a box of scraps, made a flying suit that became the envy of the world (outside of Wakanda) after like a month of tinkering, then only a few years later developed a nanotech version of the suit that made the Mark 3 look like a Windows 95 brick computer. Given the access to the same resources, Tony could invent way better things than the Wakandans or Rocket.


    Which was a MCU exclusive thing and not something that ever happened in the comics. The smartest person in the comics for most of Marvel's run had been either Reed Richards or Victor Von Doom.

    Thanks for listening to my :comicbookguy: TED Talk

    The Guardians came to Earth. Rocket looked over Starks tech and LITERALLY laughed historically at how primitive it was. :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Me rolling into a 200 IQ Senegal village kid's room holding an iPhone 11 laughing at his self made radio doesn't make me smarter than him.

    Miles could do way cooler shit than Peter. There's no point in just turning Miles into a black clone of Peter Parker. Venom Shock and Invisibility are so much better than "could make his own web fluids because he's a nerd"

    Actually worrying about if Tony, Reed or Peter are smarter than Shuri is where we are in society of, "iT iSnT lIkE tHaT iN tHe CoMiCs". Not saying it is in this thread but sounds very neck beard


    Like, I don't give a fuck if Shuri isn't the smartest but it's cool she is, and it's very cool and great she is now that Chadwick passed away...they're all Geniuses in their own regard. Genius can be attributed towards any person of a subject.

    Sure, but using the instance of Rocket laughing at Earth's tech as an example of how smart Tony is or isn't is just dumb. Peter Quill washes his clothes with better tech than the Iron Man suit, that doesn't make him smarter than Tony, just that he had access to more advanced tech by virtue of living in Space.

    These are all facts. Shuri was pretty much a backseat character in the Marvel comics before the Black Panther film. She was in no way held to the same intelligence level as Stark, Richards, or Doom. T’challa was consistently shown to be as, if not more intelligent, than Shuri.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love what Feige and the MCU have done with her character, but the BP movie really made her into what she has become in both on screen and now in the comics.

    One of my favorite lines in the MCU because it makes me laugh every time. He’s screaming at Ralphie who made something of himself after a tough upbringing. My guy just can’t escape bullies.

    I mean if Chris Pratt can still be prominently in the MCU then so can Letitia Wright

    But he is a white male and she is a black female

    Also its not too uncommon for african americans to be antivaxxers, especially when it comes from the government
