since the captain thread seem to be doing fairly well so far (whee, lack of flame wars). let's talk about the VCs =D
there's really not as many to list, considering you either never see their ability, or they got ownd way too quickly.
renji: he's probably the strongest VC, and probably the only one that has attained ban kai. he's quickly nearing the level of a captain. his raw strength and endurance are crazy; however, his kidou power is weak/non-existant
yachiru: although you never really get to see her fight, just her aura was enough to scare off a special-ops dude. i don't think she's stronger than renji, since she thinks that knowing your sword is "cheap" (eg 2v1). i doubt we'll ever see her fight... yachiru fighting would be... so wrong oO;;
rangiku/kira: you never really see the end of this fight... personally, i think they're rather on par with each other.
hinamori: her kidou abilities are strong, but she is not the fighting type. period.
iba: however, i think hinamori is probably strong than iba, who - from the looks of it - split even with ikkaku. and had to transfer to another division just to become a VC.
shuuhei: geez... for a "prodigy", losing to a 5th seat?
1st VC, oomaeda, isane, kaien: n/a. got pwnd too fast.
nanao, nemu: n/a. you don't really see these girls fight
About the VC, i think just Renji and Yachiru are worth the interest.
Yumichika may not be a VC, but it is only cause Yachiru can't be removed as Kenpachi's VC, i think it's a charcter with many potential.
Strengthwise, other VC don't worth the effort of taping a rank
Hard to say since most of them barely fight, and most of them suck.
I support Papaya's suggestion, except the part that they suck. I have respect for Yachiru and Isane, Yachiru co'z, being on Kenpachi's shoulder 24-7, having super duper speed and hiding spiritual energy (Ichigo, for a guy who can see Byakuya's movement, he didn't even notice Yachiru until she was standing on his shoulder) and Isane co'z she is well educated in most of the demon arts and healing arts (Unohana to Isana, Just like Sakura to Tsunda, but a lot more grown up, know what i mean ). Btw, she pulled off that High level Spiritual broadcast of Aizen's evil doing.
Btw, regarding to earlier post, Rangiku powned Kira no doubt about that, why do you thinking they showed Kira against the wall on the floor and later Rangiku running to Hitsugya's aid (after being informed by Isane's broadcast).
So basically VC's aren't all about strength, they are more about skill (except Renji, and 2nd VC, maybe 8th and 9th too )
YES, i did change my sig :P (These are so much cooler )
I forgot Isane did that.. guess I should put her higher.

looks like no one is doubting that renji is the powerful-est VC =P
you know my opinon...
matsumoto kira and isane... renji is overrated...
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

whatever you say, he HAS bankai, so he's potentially better than any other VC who hasn't it, since not only Bankai increase the lethality of your Zanpakuto much more but it also increase your reiatsu and overall strength.
yea its not really overrating when he has the power needed to b a captain, even if he doesnt have the control he has the stamina and resolve to beat any vc. maybe not 11th just cause she is really small
