    The Gorosei's in terms of strength i would guess all used to be former CP9 members and have all those abilities. Some probably have devil fruit powers. In their old age they retired into politics.

    Shichibukai get benefits from being allied with them. So they really wouldn't attack their ally's. And even then it's mentioned that they don't fully do as the Gorosei command.

    Overall I don't think they are strong physically anymore they all look like they are in their 90s or higher... As old or older than whitebeard.

    I don't think they would be former CP9 agents. Besides, I think they stay in the CP9 until they die or something, since Kumidori had been in it for like hundreds of years, and Lucci since he was a little kid. Besides, if they were agents, they would technically be weaker than the CP9 the Mugiwaras took out, since they were the top agents in history.

    All true. Plus, I like the idea of them being former admirals more, if you say that they're World Government officials who got promoted over time to the position of Gorosei. It's the difference between being in the army, and being in the Secret Service. A guy who was one of the highest ranked members of the Secret Service isn't going to go into the public eye and run for president. He'd stay in the shadows and do the dirty work, because that's what his job has been. And besides, nobody would vote for him, because they wouldn't know what he's done. He's secret. He's still a government official, but he deals with the "underground" operations of the government. But a top army general WOULD get elected president, because people have seen and heard about all of his acts of heroism and because he's used to being a public figure. And that's because he was involved in the "mainstream" operations of the government. You can't become head of a government if you've only dealt with the covert aspects, because the people won't like you, because they don't know. And besides, government head is itself a mainstream position, because you'd be in the public eye, and because you'd usually work with the overt aspects, leaving the covert stuff for the big issues, and since you'd usually be working in the mainstream department, you'd get promoted to be head of government by going through the branch of the mainstream section of the government. Think of the CP's as the Secret Service, and the Marines as the army, and you'll see. No Secret service operative has ever been elected president. However, several generals HAVE been elected president.

    That is very true: Most world leaders have some kind of military background, usually very high up. However, no one elects the Gorosei. They control the world, and the Navy. They just go ahead and control the world, sort of "take it over". Besides, the higher-ups in the Navy mostly all have huge loyalty personalities to the WG, so how would they be able to run a government they worship?
