    If we're basing this purely off hype, then X Drake>Hawkins

    Both were stated to be standouts amongst the Worst generation by Shakky, but X Drake has an additional slice of hype to his name in the form of a remark by some nameless character that he was the most infamous of the supernovas along with Kidd (by the end of the TS)

    That statement implies that hes >all the others except for Luffy and Kidd

    That statement doesn’t imply anything of the sort. Stop wanking.

    I'm going with Drake winning this.

    I feel like X Drake is meant to be a power house in this series, especially with the DF he possess; Hawkins will be a mastermind, though.

    No, it doesn’t. There is no feat or sliver of hype putting Drake above Hawkins. They both entered the New World in a similar manner, Drake challenging Scotch, and Hawkins challenging Brownbeard. An offhand remark by a fodder means nothing. Drake and Hawkins have been compared more often than not. Do you really think that Oda will definitively portray Drake as superior to Hawkins? Absolutely not. I doubt even Kid will be shown in that light. They’ll all be playing second fiddle to Luffy.

    Drake extreme diff. My personal SN ranking:

    Luffy > Kidd > Law = Zoro = Drake > = Hawkins > Urouge = Apoo >= Killer > Capone > Bonney

    High tier:
    Kidd
    Law/Zoro/Drake
    Hawkins

    Mid tier:
    Urouge/Apoo
    Killer

    Low tier:

    Capone
    Bonney

    Luffy is pretty much stretching the boundary of Supernova level.

    What was the purpose of throwing that statement in there, if not to give a subtle indication of who the top dogs of the worst generation were?

    Why are you so confident that luffy is going to be cast in a different light to the rest of the sn from now until the end of the manga? The very point of them existing at all was to show that luffy wasn't the only exceptional pirate of his generation and that there were others making just as much noise as him elsewhere in the Grand line.

    Kid and Drake are going to be right up there with luffy in terms of strength. Anything less than that would be an injustice to their characters

    X Drake and Kid were highlighted as ones making waves in the New World, but we have to take into account their nature as well. Kid is a crazy and reckless hothead and Drake is part of the warmongering Beast Pirates, it's easy to see why those two would have been frequenting the headlines the most among them all.

    Hawkins isn't the type to go wild like that, he's much more calculating and methodical in his approach, so it makes sense if he hasn't been seen as tearing it up to the same degree as those two.

    Hawkins might have a very different modus operandi to kid or drake, but that doesn't mean he couldn't have gained just as much attention from his exploits as they did.

    His bounty was even higher than Drakes pre ts despite him being a much more collected person
