I always loved Spiderman, but realize that one of the things that I liked about him the most was his genius intellect and how he built his own web shooters. Everyone would want one of those - really, seriously - who wouldn't want those?
BUT, if I'm going to pick him for that, then I might as well go whole hog and go with THE smarted super-genius and pick Mr. Fantastic. Others who would be nearly as good would be Tony Stark/Iron Man (billions to back him up), Forge (mutant ability to invent) and Professor Xavier of the X-men (super genius plus telepath supreme). There are a few others who COULD absorb abilities like Mimic, so technically speaking, he could become as smart and able as any of these people.
In the DC universe, there aren't really any analogues, maybe one of the braniacs from the Justice League in the future. None of the JLA really fit the bill... maybe batman, but really, it's not the same.
