Roger died 22y ago , he died as the strongest that is true but WB for example was from the same generation as him but he kept on living till 2 y ago . What i'm trying to say that WB might have surpassed the power that Roger had at that time ....
I don't think Whitebeard was meant to have been a God on his prime. His stamina and reflexes decreased with age, but his power would not have been more devastating than it already is. And I think the Databooks also say something about his strength not decreasing with age.

Actually, it was twenty-four years ago. WB was getting older and his power was waning. I don't think he surpassed him in any way whatsoever. Oops, I take that back. He surpassed him when it came to fatherhood; that's true. Don't forget Akainu's words towards Ace at the great war when he said that WB lost to his true father and he never became a PK or anything and he is pathetic and so on and so forth. I think WB's power was at its peak in Roger's age.
Besides, you saidYou used plural here. You didn't quite completely answer my question.Quote:

99 Gol D Roger
99 Whitebeard (prime)
99 Garp (prime)
95 Whitebeard (old)
95 Garb (old)
90 Blackbeard (pre timeskip)
93 Blackbeard (after timeskip)
92 Big Mum
89 Marco + other commanders
81 Smoker (pre timeskip - now?)
80 Luffy (pre timeskip - now ?)
70 Zorro (pre timeskip - now ?)
65 Sanji (pre timeskip - now ?)
60 Franky (pre timeskip - now ?)
100 Going Merry
Blackbeard was not that strong before the timeskip. He defeated Ace because of his Devil Fruit, but otherwise he still got a beating from Luffy or Magellan. It took his whole crew to put down and deadly injuried Whitebeard, and still suffered in the hands of Sengoku and the crew ran away from Akainu.
There is no way Ace should be equals with Marco. Ace is on par with Jinbei, whom Luffy should be stronger than.
zoro is definitely > ace
found a eng trans from a interview:
Reader: About the Whitebeard Pirates, if there are pirates from the "Whitebeard ally groups", is there a possibility of one of them becoming a commander of the real Whitebeard Pirates itself? Or are the commanders all from the real Whitebeard Pirates from the beginning? P.N. amanuts
Oda: Ok, I'll explain a little about the Whitebeard Pirates. First, captain Whitebeard and the 16 commanders. All 16 commanders, despite numbers and ages have the same strength. All the same. Whitebeard Pirates are just split in 16 groups. the 43 ally pirate ships are not any part of the Whitebeard Pirates and are usually all just scattered everywhere living their own little lives. Yet they are loyal to Whitebeard, and help him in desperate times. They are like that. In Ace's case, the Spade Pirates were destroyed, and all the members joined the Whitebeard Pirates, so he was able to become a commander.
Maybe you can find the original and translate it more accurately?
thanks a bunch !
