That's pretty much been my stance on the matter and what I thought Bach meant here. It also could explain why they're called war potentials and not just war threats since they can't avoid all these guys forever. We still don't know what tools they have at their disposal but they may have means of controlling, threatening, bargaining, or manipulating potentials who have things that can't be stolen easily. Given Mayuri's past actions I still don't know if they would want anything to do with him outside of stealing his research.

I believe JB said that both he and Aizen have an Eternal time before them.
Suggesting that JB plans to destroy SS and the human world will leave them in a place where time does not exist or at least flows differently.
I think it is interesting that JB wanted Aizen to join him, and I find it strange that Aizen refused. tho in fairness we only have JB account of that conversation,
Aizen is trapped in that prison, without the power of the Hogyoku to augment his own power except for now supposedly being immortal. I dont see why JB would even bother with Aizen. unless Aizen had something JB needed. Perhaps JB wants people that he cannot kill in an instant around to keep him company.
Or MAYBE)_)_ oh shit idea!!-
Perhaps JB went to Aizen to recruit him and was now effected by the HG. meaning, Ichigos Use of Blut Vene, might have been activated within ichigo via HG after JB went to see aizen. Perhaps JB really wants the shinigami and the quincy to be one. and since aizen is bound and sealed, it remotely acted upon the other main person that the HG has influenced in this manga, ichigo.
---ehh....maybe not.. but it sure is fun to play the what if game.! ^_^
If someone can mop the floor with your whole army, you would prefer him to help you, or to fight you, if he somehow breaks out of prison? Aizen is still dangerous, he is immortal. Notable Threats are people who are stronger than others and can alone stand against Sternritters. Kenpachi was one but he was HUGELY overestimated, as Juha stated. I think Notable Threats are people who are on Dangai Ichigo's level or can become one. (Ishida?)

Is this 5 potentials something from the manga?
Ok. I see. Chapter 490. I forgot about that.

One of the war potentials that hasn't been revealed yet, is probably a great threat to Juha Bach. Most likely, a new character Kubo will introduce in the long run.

How do you know Juha is stronger than Yama's bankai? Yama was slashed by Bach without having even guarded against the attack, and in shikai. If he was using ZT West, what would happen to that slash? I leave that to everyone's imagination.
What does that have anything to do with FGT Ichigo?
Aizen started becoming Yama's superior the moment he undergo his first transfiguration with the hogyoku & he could have easily defeated Yama at full power yet after undergoing his 2nd(& 3rd) transfiguration, it was mocked by Ichigo. Before Ichigo even began to use his FGT,
He outright played with Aizen's devastrating strikes http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57111-1...apter-418.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57111-1...apter-418.html
Slapped Hado 90 which is able to disort time & space when fueled with his new found power http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57111-1...apter-418.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57111-2...apter-418.html
A simple Ken'a'tsu from his sword is able to complete vaporized mountains leaving nothing. http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57111-1...apter-418.html
A KEN'A'TSU OF ALL THINGS.
Aizen(hogyoku) realising he was no match for Ichigo was forced into another transfiguration.
He did a tiny concentrated beam http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html
Capable of this level of destruction http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html
and Ichigo didn't even care do dodge, block or anything. He just stood there and took it like nothing.
It is funny how Ichigo could have complete negated the beams damage simply by releashing reiatsu but he didn't. He just took it.
We then move on to here http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-1...apter-419.html
Aizen after brutally smashing Ichigo's body wanted to finish Ichigo off with multiple beams (forming rings around Ichigo).
Ichigo at this point was outright annoyed & insulted by Aizen's silly attempts to take him out therefore he easily destroyed those rings of beams sorrounding him with a swing http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-2...apter-419.html
This ony proves that without the regenerative & transfigurative properties of the hogyoku, Aizen would be doomed without Ichigo ever using the FGT.
Ichigo finally used FGT to competely annihilate everything. http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57322-2...apter-419.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57474-1...apter-420.html http://www.mangapanda.com/94-57474-2...apter-420.html
AND YOU SPEAK OF THIS FORM'S POWER AS THOUGH IT'S SOMETHING THAT CAN EASILY BE ACHIEVED? Even by chatacters like Shinji?(who was Aizen's inferior at base?) and you call me an idiot because I think that's totally bogus? pfft
We don't have anything to quantify where Ichigo's FGT or his ultimate bankai form stands in the food chain but we know it's at the very top of the food chain.
Anyway, I think Ginjo would've probably been a war potential had he still been alive. The guy was a half-human half-shinigami like Ichigo, and even had some Hollow-powers in there.
I don't think his bankai could have been stolen so easily.
Or Ichigo's possible Quincy heritage is why his bankai cannot be stolen.
