after this arc, will luffy have surpassed/matched shanks?
After reading what the frog-lady said at the end of 388, it kinda got me thinking. The strawhats are attacking perhaps the most defended marine island on the grandline, and they are fighting against CP9, the strongest agents in the marines. Plus, i have a feeling that CP9's last resort may be to use the buster call against the straw hats directly, so if that happens and the straw hats win like they always do, they would've defeated one of the 3 marine generals.
Plus, they're most likely going to get a bitching ship out of this to replace the going merry.
I can't really imagine any other pirate on the grandline doing something of this scale, not even the shichibukai.
so what do you think, will luffy have matched shanks in strength/fame after this arc?
Mastering 2nd gear, defeating cp9, saving Robin - thats quite enough to make him as famous as Shanks... baah, we dont even know HOW famous Shanks really is (I mean- bounty). All we know that he is somewhere about WB level, and thats it...
i don't think shanks is quite at the level of whitebeard yet, afterall, whitebeard is considered a equal to gold roger.
but shanks i believe is definately above all the shichibukais
Luffy will only match/surpass shanks when he returns the hat and that's my final word on this matter.
And it will be like... right in front of One Piece gates... heh, the winner takes it all, Strawhats VS Red hair's That wouldnt be that bad.

i doubt that he will be around shanks level after this since shanks level is close to white berad.. probably the second strongest pirate group after WB.... But after this luffy's level will probably be around the shisi bukai.....
Re: after this arc, will luffy have surpassed/matched shanks
first i don't think it's the most defended marine island.... far from that.... it's "only" a great symbol so nobody with something in their head would attack it like that (in fact, nobody did )
second, cp9 agents are very strong, but i don't think it was stated that they were the strongest ... ??....
i think that there are more powerful elite marine regiments out there, under the commands of the admirals....
and i don't think they would be able to survve a buster call right now ... at least if shanks doesn't help them ^^
Shanks is one of two most powerful pirates in One Piece world.So if he would the equal or even surpass shanks after this arc,logically OP would end VERY soon(becouse only one who would be more powerful than strawhats would be whitebeards crew=strongest pirates)
So no,I hope he wont be anywhere near shanks in term of power...I predict that he will be somewhere around blackbeards crew and weaker of shibukai...
(and maybe some elite marine divisions...)
