Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy Affair

Where there's power there's outrage, and the White House is no more bizarre to by the same token. In the mid 1960s, with the United States' most dapper President in the White House, it was inevitable before Marilyn Monroe, Hollywood's most stylish diva, tracked down her direction to Washington.

It started in February of 1962, when Monroe was welcome to an evening gathering held in Kennedy's honor. This wasn't whenever they'd first met, and in their past experiences, eyewitnesses had seen their coquettishness. Be that as it may, this time, Kennedy requested her telephone number. He called the following day to welcome her to his home in Palm Springs, Calif.; advantageously, First Lady Jackie would be missing.

However the Secret Service attempted to disguise proof of their gatherings, reports whirled following that California weekend. Kennedy was a women's man known for his extramarital dalliances, and that's what different visitors saw "clearly they were cozy and that they were remaining there together for the evening" 


Yet, this gathering of Hollywood and political eminence had under a fantasy finishing. Monroe's upset youth had left her sincerely and mentally powerless, and she purportedly succumbed to Kennedy definitely more profoundly than he accomplished for her. His disappearing interest in her matched with a progression of different dissatisfactions, and she sank into liquor and chronic drug use. On Aug. 4, 1962, she passed on alone in her home of a medication glut. Her passing was governed a likely self destruction [source: Doll].
