Lex Luthor Vs. Doctor Doom- Who Would Win?

In the annals of DC and Marvel, two villains stand apart from the rest- Lex Luthor and Doctor Doom. Which of them is the superior of the two?
There are some striking similarities between these two villains- both men are obsessed with destroying their nemesis to the detriment of nearly everything else in their lives. Both men are among the smartest on their respective planets. Both really like the color green, although Doom's shade is darker than the one Lex prefers.

If these two villains were to clash, which one would be the victor? Would Lex take out Doom? Or would Doom teach Lex a painful lesson in who's the best?

No prep

Location Blue Area of the Moon

Round 1. Hand to hand fight, without armor, powers, or weapons.
Round 2. Hand to hand fight, with armor.
Round 3. All weapons and armor related abilities allowed.
Round 4. Lex Luthor Vs Doctor Doom in Chess

Who wins and how?

IMHO, Doom is far superior. Since even early days, Doom has had a sense of honor and rules he'll usually try to follow. (depending sometimes on the writer) Next to Lex Luthor, he's a magnificent Bastard where Lex is simply a bastard. Doom is Napoleon, Lex is Buddy Pine.

Is either one a trained fighter? Doom more often looks like he's in better shape, so I'll go with him.

Probably depends on who has the better armor. I wouldn't mind hearing where everyone stands on that. Of course Doom has more experience fighting in armor.

Even more likely to go Dooms way. The way I see it, in this scenario Doom can use his magic.

No idea.

Unlike many here, i do see both of them equally as smart, just that doom is much better in magic, and he is physically superior, trained to master martial arts, and even take down Lions!

In my own head cannon, the Marvel geniuses are smarter than the DC geniuses. But even if Lex were as smart as Victor, Doom is in much more control of himself. Lex is more similar to Norman Osborn than to Victor von Doom.

I have a question for everyone here.


What is your criteria for determining who is the smartest genius?

Great question, as one can be pure smart, another able to adapt and use tech, another to battle plan etc!
