Even the Krees consider her intelligence to be a threat to their universe. She created a device that allowed her to find the Omni-Wave Projector, hacked the police department, and developed various appliances that enhance the power of her costume.

Our list will be incomplete without this young lady. At the age of 15, Riri Williams is already a student at MIT. She managed to construct an armor-costume similar to the renowned creation by Tony Stark.
