Re: One piece_687
Enel has a lot going for him.
Lighting teleporting, island range CoO, high destructive potential. He can port away and start raining El Thor's from miles away on a target, his arrogance damped his potential a lot. But as I said in my post, there are lots of characters that can simply tank his attacks rendering them useless and could easily take him once he is forced into close combat.
Sanji can indeed beat him. Enel was taken out by Skypiea Luffy who is inferior to current Sanji in every aspect, and his geppou would allow him to evade El Thor as it has a small charge time forcing Enel into close combat where he simply can't compete with Sanji.
With his powers alone Enel is high tier, but low high tier.
