One Piece is running through its latest arc, and Wano has not disappointed. Eiichiro Oda has been working up to this new story for awhile now, and it looks like Monkey D. Luffy is in for another good fight.
After all, the Straw Hat’s challenge to Kaido did not go over so well, but his showdown with another Beasts Pirate may work.
Recently, One Piece set out with a new chapter, and it was there fans were greeted by Queen. The pirate has not been seen for quite some time, but his reputation is legendary. The plump baddie is one of Kaido’s top three men, and it seems Queen is going to be taking on Luffy real soon.
The end of chapter 934 teased the moment’s arrival. Readers watched on as Luffy stood up for an elderly man imprisoned with him as Hyogoro faced punishment from his guards. The Straw Hat decided he would run the risk of execution if it meant saving the old man, but his escape attempt would be stopped short by Queen. The villain is seen walking up to the Prisoner Mines by the chapter’s close, leaving fans to imagine the beatdown about to go down.
After all, Queen is no pushover, and his high rank within the Beasts Pirates proves it. The newcomer is equal in status to guys like Jack and King. While little is known about his exact powers, Queen is revered as one of Kaido’s righthand men, and readers know that means Luffy is about to be in for a world of pain.
