Kenpachi wouldn't win in a battle of brute force either. No one short of Yamamoto/Aizen/Isshin, and possibly a few others could destroy Komamura's bankai just like that.
no matter what "Would" happen ichigo won that fight, and by the way, With kenpachi not dodging, is because he hate dodging, he with his own words "Its just so much funnier on straight on slashing." which means he likes getting cut and do the cutting, if he started dodging it wouldnt be kenpachi, as he said when he was fighting Tozen, "I hate fighting like this, i hate thinking in a fight." which clearly decrees that he hates dodging which i only seen him do against Tozen in the whole series, all the other times he parried (Besides getting a bit cut up.) Kenpachi fights Head-on and thats why i like him no cheap ass tricks he goes as far as to give the opponent the advantage before he kicks their ass to gooey paste. But no matter how i like Ken he lost that fight, Simply by seeing their swords, Ichigo's sword was whole, ken's was cut in half, and ken's was wounded far worse than ichigo.

And if Ken used bankai, im pretty sure the soul society would end, because that much spirit energy would destroy every being there xD

it would be a shame if kenpachi won't ever use his bankai. at least before the end of the manga,he has to do so! I hope that byakuya won't be trolled by that strength,though.
I won't discuss about spiritual energy because I seriously doubt Kenpachi can bring Grimmjow to his knees just by using reaitsu. Also, it was stated a few times in the manga that no one can understand Aizen's reiatsu, as it he is completely on another lvl. I will assume everyone agrees that Aizen wins in this area.
Regarding physical strength, let's compare the prowess of each character:
Aizen was powerful enough to stop Ichigo's Bankai with just one finger and almost cut him in half with a single swing of a sword.
He stopped Renji's Shikai with his bare hand and broke it with one swing.
He was able to stop Komamura's Shikai with his bare hand.
He further shows his strength by being able to effortlessly cut through the sword and wrist of Komamura's Bankai, nearly killing Komamura in the process.
I'm very very sure, Kenpachi have not shown something even near that lvl. So no, to me, Aizen is superior in both reiatsu and strength.
What would happen if Kenpachi achieves shikai and bankai? I don't know, but probably kioka suigetsu will still be the most overpowered zanpakto. We could also question ourselves: what would happen if Aizen releases his bankai? Seriously, I don't think Kenpachi can compete by aaaany means with Aizen.
And let's not forget, a battle between 2 Shinigamis is a battle of reiatsu.
No matter how physically strong Kenpachi may be, we've seen Aizen " breaking " Tenken in Shikai and pwning Komamura's Bankai, and we've seen that even Tousen stopped Komamura's bankai swing with relative ease, even though these two look frail compared to Kenpachi.
Of course base Aizen and Yama are stronger than Kenpachi for now, but seriously they would be stronger than any other Captain not only in base, but also in Shikai. So I can clearly see Kenpachi becoming stronger than Byakuya (as for now they are shown to be more or less at the same level lower than Shunsui and Ukitake, but stronger than other young Captains and supposedly at the same level as Kensei and Shinji) after learning the name of his Zan and getting a real Shikai.
but metalia is right,isshin was winning against aizen until the latter used the hougyoku. so god-aizen was probably stronger than yamamoto. hence,if kenpachi surpassed one of them it wouldn't be too stretch,imo,and he is the only character that can be strengthened by kubo without stretching the story too mcuh
Stronger. Kenpachi. Beast
According to new Bleach novel, Kenpachi is one of the strongest characters in the manga. The novel wasn't written by Kubo and isn't canon but there're comments which are supposedly from Kubo who says Narita, the writer of the novel, has seen Zaraki's true potential. We haven't seen Kenpachi during the invasion yet, I wonder what he'll do against quincies.
