Well Oda is probably the biggest fanboy of dragonball, so it seems very possible to me now.

Caribou probably won't talk to the World Government, he is a pirate after all. He will probably sell the information to the highest bidder, likely another pirate crew, probably one of the Yonkou. I agree that he will escape, if Oda intended for him to be caught or killed he would not have escaped Luffy already. But I think it is more probable that he tells Big Mom, Kaido, or Blackbeard about Poseidon, setting up a confrontation later in the series. It is possible that Shirahoshi is exiled but it does not seem like something that would fit the storyline well.
While it is not out of the question that Poseidon goes to another planet, it seems unlikely at this point in time. Comparisons to Dragonball Z (not always fair to One Piece as a unique title influenced by but not beholden to) aside, none of the information we currently have about Noah or Poseidon would suggest that inter-planetary travel will take place. All we know is that on the appointed day Poseidon will use her power to summon the seas kings, who will raise the ship to the surface. Until then the ship can not be moved and must wait at the bottom of the ocean. We can extrapolate that Luffy will replace "Joyboy" and be the one to return for the ship. There are also strong hints that it will transport the Fishman to the surface. But until the appointed day it's mission will remain a mystery and it will be docked at the bottom of the sea. That was the promise made between Joyboy and the first Poseidon.
they dont have to be fast. Maxim was damn slow if you remember

I dont know if you watched all the episodes from One Piece.But those are ancient weapons capable of destroying the world.And in the wrong hands who knows what could happen...
There is no purpose for these weapons,they would be best to leave alone as they are.
MAJOR SPOILER FOR THOSE WHO DIDNT READ EVERYTHING:
Shirahoshi is poseidon!

I don't know about the abundance of invisible bridges, but first let's talk about maxim.
Maxim had a continued means of propulsion in the air. It was designed to fly.
Seakings will just flail around, but their centre of gravity will just keep accelerating downwards at the rate of 9.81m/s^2.
Noah had probably the reason of carrying the fishmen,I don't know if Joy Boy planned to let fishmen live on the surface on it or if fishmen are the descendents of the men who lived on it and then were forced to fit undersea. Poseidon shouldn't have any reson,it was a mermaid with that power,a power so great to be regarded as one of the 3 greatest.
I agree, it does not seem like there would be a special purpose behind poseidon. The power poseidon has is in principle the same generic ability merfolk have that allows them to speak with fish and other special kind of creature except that it uniquely works with sea kings. In this regard, it does not seem to be a developed ability that requires any form of training or something that came out of research (unless fishmen turn out to be some weird genetic experiment from another civilization hundreds of years ago for the purpose of controlling sea kings and make whoever controlled fishmen damn king of the ocean). In this regard, it is entirely possible that the other ancient weapons are more of a response to queen bitch of the ocean (not saying the ancient mermaid princess was evil but fear alone could perhaps be a trigger), they felt the need to have something equally powerful behind them.
I think it was originally used for power balance, like tailed beasts in Naruto
The Balance of Power is the relationship between the Three Powers - Marine, Shichibukai, and Yonkou. The Ancient Weapons were created by the Ancient Kingdom, before the formation of the World Government, and long before the Age of Pirates. The Balance of Power would not apply.
It could have been an ancient balance of power of sorts. You would have 3 sides each with one of the ancient weapons to counter that of the others. The fishmen would have perhaps been the first to have an ancient weapon since it is a genetically inherited ability. Then would have come the arc, seemingly man made to counter and the last one which we don't really know.
All things considered, they seem to have been created by the Ancient Kingdom, meant to fight the Twenty Kings. The Poneglyphs tell the location of all three weapons, and the true history. The creators of the poneglyphs probably also created the ancient weapons. As the true history is revealed, the truth about the weapons will be revealed. The weapons and the void century are inseparable. They will be probably be used in the last battle, to overthrow the World Government. Luffy essentially already has control of two. Alabasta holds Pluton, Poseidon is hidden at Fishman Island. Both islands are friendly to the Strawhats. When the time comes, both will be placed in Luffy, and only Luffy's, care.
