And I don't think I have to explain to anyone how many tiers he'd shoot up if he masters the Letz Stil he used against Mayuri and can use it without losing his powers. That form is beast. Plus Kirge Opie makes it painfully obvious that Ishida has ALOT of potential for reasons that are yet unknown, though I'm guessing it has to do with his family.
I personally think Gin is slightly ahead of Byakuya who is immensely powerful...Remember folks Gin was just a kid when he killed the 3rd seat of the 5th squad with little effort...Just because someone may have took less time to become a captain or whatever doesn't mean that they are definitely more powerful or talented...Circumstances may have played a role...Hitsu being the youngest captain is impressive but who is to say that Gin or Byakuya could not have done the same if there was an opening at the time and their captain recommended them? We dont know all the contributing factors so we cant ay with any certainty...However from what i have seen iin the manga thus far i think that Gin is probably Shunsui level, with Byakuya marginally below that...Hitsu will probably surpass them both but ATM he isnt in the league...Well thats my opinion anyway...

Definitely Gin. Aizen who seems to be the most intelligent and clever individual from Bleach chose him for a reason. If he hadn't betrayed him - which he knew he would - he would still be standing by him, furthering his plan if one is to completely ignore a shonen hero's captain obvious victory.
That's how the manga is; Aizen was planning for over a hundred years, doesn't seem luck to me. I really don't understand why are you pressing on that matter here. He planned it, so he did. Manga says so, because the author intended so. Leaves zero room for speculation.

Aizen was aware of the killer intent Gin had raised inside his heart as a trait. We're talking about a kid introducing himself as a snake. How could Aizen not be wary of such a huge possibility?
But yes, he was lying when he said that he just wanted to see how Gin would betray him. He simply underestimated Gin and never thought that Gin had something so powerful up in his sleeve.
The deception Gin carried out here isn't his ability to hide his intentions, but rather, the job he did in keeping his power as a secret for a good century.
2. They conquered countries in 20-30 years? Really? I guess it didn't last long, unfortunately.
3. Aizen could conquer HM because of his hax zanpakuto AND his strength. You really think that Mayuri, who is really smart, could do that without such power?
Aizen conquered HM not because of tactical abilities but stregth. Creating WW was logical thing to do. I mean, he had to ensure he'll win. You'll do the same if you had Hogyoku, that makes everything you want. ;_;
