I think Allen and the Earl at this point are probably roughly equal in strength, with Allen being just a little bit stronger.
I said he was strong, a little stronger in power than the Earl.
I say Allen's weaker than alot of people were he is now (he's like 7 or 8 )BUT we all know Allen's gonna kill the earl so eventually he'll be as strong as the earl and you know what ?? HE'LL STILL WIN BY PURE FRICKEN LUCK!!!!
The earl is obviously the strongest since hes the final boss and all
and btw, I agree with you that Allen might be ranked around 8 if you count in all the generals and the Noahs. But when it comes to a "only exorcist" ranking, not counting the generals, then there is no question that Allen is the strongest. He is the only exorcist who has reached the critical point and is not yet a general. I doubt any of the other exorcists would ever be able to make it to such a high level in such a short time.
Ahem, but yeah Allen isn't anywhere near that strong at all. The Earl is definantly the strongest character in the manga, not even Cross can beat him. If anyone was stronger he'd be dead by now probably and Revellier would rejoice and put all the exorcist on the street.
ok, cross and lvl 4 are both really strong, but i say the earl is definitely stronger
