Franky will get an upgrade for sure! And the end of the Arc Franky will be strongest cyborg ever existed!
About the others I am not certain either! Nami might get another upgrade to her climatact.
Mqybe more forms for chopper, this would be great!
Ussop may also benefit in upping his sniping techs.
You guys already did the explaining for me.
When I said "the rest of the SHs", I was talking about the "weakest Straw Hats."
But Brook, Robin, and the wings of PK need to boost their base strengths, otherwisez they have no room to oppose an admiral level threat, let alone BB crew.
The wings of PK already got their upgrades, so I don't expect them to get any in the near future.
But Zoro must certainly develop better CoO or even future sight to stand a chance against Shiryu.
Robin should learn haki, but this doesn't seem like the arc to get that upgrade.
But since Jinbe is in the crew now, at the very least she might be able to learn more fishman karate techniques.
Brook is the tricky one.
We don't know his full power yet because his lame matchup in Wano.
Maybe he is more powerful than we give him credit for.
Let's compare SH & BB crew potential matchups (my personal theory):
Luffy vs Blackbeard (captain vs captain)
Zoro vs Shiryu (swordsman vs swordsman)
Sanji vs Avalo Pizarro (both are from North Blue, Germa prince vs "Corrupt King", mecha legs vs mecha arms)
Jinbe vs Jesus Burgess (helmsman vs helmsman, karate vs wrestling/grappling champion)
Robin vs Katarina Devon (no strong basis, just strong woman vs strong woman lmao)
Franky vs San Juan Wolf (shipwright vs "Colossal Battleship")
Nami vs Laffitte (navigator vs navigator)
Brook vs Vasco Shot (musician vs clown/jester-looking man, pervert vs pervert)
Usopp vs Van Augur (sniper vs sniper)
Chopper vs Doc Q (doctor vs doctor)
No disrespect to Usopp, but if these guys clash right now, he is the 1 person who has absolute 0% winning chance.
Van Augur has crazy accuracy and that teleportation power is straight up cheat code.
Usopp must develop better CoO or even future sight (I doubt it) to stand a chance.
So a tech/sensor/google to detect movements would greatly help as well.
For the people voting for captured and not killed, whats the reasoning beyond plot armor that BB would capture him alive and not kill him and take his fruit?
Even if he's captured alive and made to make BB immortal or something, that is still killing him
I just think Law still has something to offer to BB besides his DF and Road Poneglyph.
He is interested in the world history, he knows about the Ancient Weapon in Wano, Robin probably shared many things to him too, etc.
He also spent a lot of time with Luffy's crew. He knows their strengths and weaknesses, etc.
It's a long shot, but I can see Law ends up allying himself with BB to save his useless crew in the end.
