I understand why they didn't allow him to just freely go raging like the Hulk, or even be a wild explorer like the SH's, it would be too much, WG would see him as an obvious and continual threat, entities don't go to bed that way, they either fix it, or die trying before the lights go out.
And Garp, prolly when he was younger, I mean he is the Dude that took control of the Ex-Warden Super Roranoa Victim To Be, Dude that joind BB's squad and helpd them out in Impel Downs. He's no bum, but lately he hasn't really tried to seriously do anything besides train Coby, and his Idiot Homey. Even at Marinford, he was emotional, and dutiful and shit, but by no means was he 'overwhelming', I mean he went out like Bellamy, one punch.
Ok would just like to remind you here, because from the way you are talking about WB he is a hulk all the time. But it has been stated and showen that even before the War at Marineford that WB was nowhere near his prime strength but was infact becoming weaker and weaker by the day. Now I cant remember if it was an illness or just aging. But a prime example would been when Squalo done his sneak stab on WB, Marco stated that WB should have been able to dodge that. And during his rampage lets not forget he issused his Last Order as Captain, basically meaning he put all his power into this rampage because no matter the circumstances he knew he was going to die, I mean look at the injuries he had.
Dont agree with you on Garp sorry man. J-man beat me to the punch, but we all know that Garp took a dive after taking Luffy's punch, deep down he wanted Ace to be saved by Luffy but he was in a position were he couldnt do anything but sit at the Admiral seat and watch the war. On the punch, we all know Garp has Haki, yes we dont know which one he specialise in but Im sure he could have used the Armour one to easily block Luffy, heck he got up after the punch without a scratch !. The Coby and Sword dude statement, Garp and Sengoku both know there era in the marines is up, they probably were staying in it mainly due to WB being still out there, Wb and Rogers being the biggest Pirates during there time. So now there passing on the torch so to speak. Garp putting it all into Coby to make him the next guy who can beat the pirates main players. (( Basically the same as Garp was to Rogers, except will be coby and luffy )) Also the moment Ace was killed we all saw Garp's face he was going to kill that Lava Admiral and we all know it.
