I was reading Mr Teriffic #1 (Sept 2011) and he says he claims to hold more degrees than most of the Harvard Professors combined.
How does he have these degrees? I would gage that his age is around the mid 30's. It takes at least 2 years (4 semesters) of work at any university to earn a degree there even with transfer work from other universities. So to earn as many as he claims, he would need to be in school for at least 20-30 years.
And that is only for undergraduate work.
For graduate and PhD work, most universities won't even accept any transfer work from other schools as most grad and doctoral programs are unique for each school.
Even if that was not an issue, and in the DC universe all classes are transferable to all schools, of the 14 PhD's that he holds, he lists them as
...two in engineering and physics also including doctorates and masters degrees in law, psychology, chemistry, political science, and mathematics.
Other than Math, engineering and physics; these subjects are not related at all, so classes wouldn't even be available for transfer if that's how he earned the degrees...
Its probably nit picking, but this issue is making me not really like Mr Teriffic, lol...
