I thought we were talking about the "Aizen that is: probably stronger than all the captains there (SS), except for Yamamoto Genryusai."

He don't "command" the espada, so that he had to "subdue" Grimjow, they follow because of power or seek of power.
Tousen if wanted to, could go toe to toe against Aizen, simply because his shikai make me belive that aizen bankai is something "illusionary" related.
He is no weakling, but we putting too much power on him, makin him some kind of god, we didn't see the extent of his full power. Just some glimpses on weak opponents
Ichigo was w/o power
Hitsugaya was under shikai effect
Ichigo hollow scared Ulquiorra, so even Ichigo going that power could subdue Grimjow, as he could show his reiatsu is cleary more powerfull..
Is Aizen strong, yea, he is.
Is aizen strong then all 13 captains? no way jose.
Maybe 3-4 but not all 13. (or even 12 like you sugested excuding Ojiisan)
