  1. I have to vote Jimmy Neutron, even though I think Dexter is billion times cooler. But I think it’s like watching a Reed Richards and Victor Von Doom fight on a the playground. Dexter is way smarter than Jimmy Neutron, but like Doom, his ego will get the better of him.

  2. With his, ugh, “Brain Blast” ability, I see Neutron as more of an intellectual sprinter. Dexter has the intelligence, but also the curiosity and creativity to out think and out last.

    Dexter’s Lab has hundreds, if not thousands inventions some of which may well do next to nothing; but others are robots of cloning machines. Dexter also has an intimidating rival in Mandark, not to mention having to counter DeeDee which keeps him prepared. Dexter may be vain, but he’s shown with Monkey that sometimes he isn’t even aware of his full scientific potential.

    Neutron may outsmart Dexter at first, but if this… thinking competition lasted longer than a few minutes I think James would end up tiring, or bowing out before Dexter’s relentless, if sometimes nonsensical ideas and inventions.

  3. I went with Dexter in this contest, but neither would have a chance against Barry Ween. I mean come-on, Boy Genius is in his title. Since he keeps his intellect hidden, he could quickly and quietly kill both Dexter and Jimmy while they argue with each other about who was smartest.

  4. I vote for neither. I cast my vote for Flavia deLuce. If you haven’t read the Flavia mystery novels by Alan Bradley you’re really missing out. But if I have to vote for a cartoon character it would be Sherman of the Peabody and Sherman team. Okay, technically, it was Mr. Peabody who was the genius, but Sherman always came up with the pun at the end of the show, which required a different sort of genius.
