Can someone explain to me, who Joker is, because I don't remember ever hearing his name.
I don't think Luffy can handle both the slime and CC at the same time.
Anyway big enemies like that are always a way for Oda to demonstrate the crew team combo attacks and I think this one won't make exception. The slime can be a good way to see the long range attacks from Nami, Usopp and Franky.

I don't see luffy one shotting anything in the new world at this point. I think everyone one/ thing in the new world takes effort to defeat. Unless you are Law.
Whats the point of training for 2 years and your power stay the same lv as those who did not train?
2) Law has be shown to in the manga to have easily defeated two people that luffy couldn't even touch (yeti bros).
3) One shotting chopper? Next.
4) Law has been in the New world for a while and has reached the level of shishibukai. He has experience that luffy does not. Everyone in the new world has at least experience fighting haki users. Luffy is not just going to haki punch people in the new world. It doesn't work like that.
5) I make my statements on fact not opinion.
finally, strength comparison aside...law's df makes it much easier for him to deal with opponents in one neat attack unlike luffy's brute force attacks...this is a fact and i believe the point unknown mugiwara and matiaildivino are trying to make
1- Luffy pwned Hody, but he was lucky that he went to the sea
2- Implying Luffy was serious and trying hard to beat them...
4- How does it work ?
5- No, they aren't based on facts, you can't say Law is more stronger than Luffy because of what happened against the two bros, they aren't facts, they are nothing, we can't judge their strenght based on that little skirmish.

It took Luffy a long time, who is a DF user, to defeat a Fishman under drugs in the water, even WB would have some trouble in the water.
Why wouldn't he Haki punch Slime ? He will do it, and he won't do it, it's up to him anyway, and I fail to see what's this have to do with what you said.
Never said Luffy could pwn anyone, but as I said some long time ago (and I will still say it), Luffy is in between mid-tier/top-tier (yeah I'm bringing that whole Rayleigh training argument again), I can see him defeating BM just like how he did against Crocodile. As I said, it would make no sense for Luffy to struggle THAT much against freaking subordinates of BM, or else he might just go back to train a little bit more.
Seriously, not all pirates in the New World are strong and know Haki and stuff, which is why many of them either try to become a Yonkou's subordinate or flee to the first half of the Grand Line. There's no doubt about that Luffy needs to defeat some Yonkou to prove his claim to be the coming King of Pirates. There's also no doubt about that Luffy can't defeat them right away nor the experienced combattants and commanders of a Yonkou crew. Those will be exhaustive fights.
Therefore Law already warned them in this chapter that they would need an opportunity and a plan. But that never meant that "everyone" in the New World would be strong nor that Law with his surprise attack was stronger than Luffy who wasn't only fighting the Yeti Cool Bros. but also Monster Chopper...
NewWorld - BM
The NW is over-hyped. If the SN survived in the new world, you can be damn sure the SHs would have survived and gained battle strength if they entered in two years ago. The real point in training and Rayleighs proposal was to stand up against last tier calibre. So while I mostly agree with all of ur opinion, Im more with Zehahaha on this, Im pretty sure Luffy could beat BM right now in a one-o-one, just as he did with Crocodile by a lot of struggle and plot flavour.
Yonko in question
Ppl are putting way too much thoughts into the blank speech bubble. Remember Kumas discussion with Rayleigh or Hodis true motive? In both cases blank lines were used, which turned out to be predictable. Same case here, the emperor in question is most likely Big Mom.
In my opinion those blank lines are just a marketing strategy of Oda/Shueisha. Its just to stir up a tension among the OP fanbase. Its all about sales and money. After all the manga industry is a huge business.
