|“||Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius.||„|
|~ Sherlock Holmes|
A Genius is a heroic individual who has super high levels of intelligence (or very near) and chooses to use their gifts for good rather than evil. They are basically the heroic equivalent of the Mad Scientist or Evil Genius archetypes. Genius often goes hand in hand with Wisdom but a genius is not necessarily a wise hero and vice-versa. The key difference between a wise hero and a genius is a genius will have the knowledge to do amazing things but a wise hero will be able to apply the knowledge they have with ease and is rarely wrong. Even the smartest of heroes can potentially be naive, or absent-minded.
Note: Please do not add if under Mastermind as it is the step above and it is redundant.
