Quote:Yes it is, to a degree. There are many factors involved in measuring one's intelligence, ie, education, environmental, etc. Genetics do play a role.
Not in the way you seem to believe.
In the comics universe, sons and daughter generally have the iconic characteristics of their famous parent(s). Sakaar the son of Hulk has his father's strength/rage and his mother's "Oldpower". Daken, son of Wolverine has his father's claws, healing factor and fighting skills. X-23, Wolverine's female clone has his claws, healing factor and killer instinct. Conner, has Superman's Kryptonian abilities. Why then should he not also have Lex's brilliant mind?
