edit: also that wasn't an over night job. Deathwing had been wallowing in corruption for a long time.

On the note of Galakrond, it is said that he was larger than all of the aspects combined. So how did deathwing become that large? Why is it when ever an enemy is corrupted by an Old God, they grow 10x their original size?!
The Lich King himself is extremely powerful. I still think that a better host than Arthas would be way more dangerous. I mean, Arthas was pretty stong and cunning, but not that much.
We killed Arthas, not the Lich King, we should all remember that. Even with Bolvar "holding him back", I still expect to see him again, good or bad (I hope, actually).
Like the OP said, yes, Arthas even defeated Ilidan while still a champion, proving his strenght. But still, can you imagine the chaos the LK could create if he possessed, say, Garrosh? If he merged with a natural warrior like an orc, he could devastate us for sure.
Anyway, I just think that Arthas+LK was insanely strong (needing a miracle from the Light to defeat him), but if Ner'zhul got a stronger host, it would be AWESOME.
My opinion on the matter is that the Lich King is still the strongest of all the "villains" we have fought and beat so far. We only wont because Tirion used the only weakness, The Light, at the right time to shatter Frostmourne. Arthas was at War with Yogg and his forces, and he was winning that war. He was chaining up faceless ones, using the blood of Yogg for metal, and probably would have eventually enslaved Yogg himself, proving his was the real "God of Death".
The Lich King is the only person we have seen so far capable of over powering an Old God and company like that. Cho'gall was working for the Old gods when he fused with C'thun, he didn't just take C'thun for himself. Same with Garrosh right now. He has the heart of a death Old God and is using his powers, but going by the audio file poilers, Yar is perfectly fine in another plane of existence and isn't being controlled in any way.
The Lich King had the power to surpass Yogg and do with him as he wished. He even created a Plague so strong that, magic seeds from the Emerald Dream,healing flames from Alexstrasza, and even the light being wielded by the strongest Naaru, A'dal couldnt stop it. Having some fun with the "what if" scenarios of what would happen in the Warcraft lore had something changed, I believe that if we didn't stop the Lich King when we did than only the full Legion, a super Old God army from the Twisting Nether, or the Titan pantheon would have been able to stop him, and even then it would have been a massive war, because anything that dies or isn't purged/obliterated might end up on the Lich Kings side.
their dragonflights aren't. we have frostwyrms, emberwyrms and magmawyrms. if the red dragons (protectos of life) can be turned, I assume bronze and green dragons can also be turned.
I don't see why aspect power would make anyone immune to the lich king's necromancy. the worgen are immune to val'kyr necromancy and the lich king took a dump on their immunity and raised them anyway.
The Lich King might be one of the strongest being out there. The old gods can't mess with the scourge and the lich king, the scourge are perfect at fighting the old god's forces since they can't be corrupted/made insane. The lich king would probably mop the floor with the old gods and even kil'jaeden, deathwing and archimonde even if its a 1 on 1 battle. As for Sargeras...well if the axe Broixgar(spelling) used could hurt sargeras than frostmourne which is leagues above that axe should cut sargeras's legs off.
“We are one, Arthas. Together, we are the Lich King. No more Ner’zhul, no more Arthas—only this one glorious being. With my knowledge, we can—”
His eyes bulged as the sword impaled him.
Arthas stepped forward, plunging the glittering, hungering Frostmourne ever deeper into the dream-being that had once been Ner’zhul, then the Lich King, and was soon to be nothing, nothing at all. He slipped his other arm around the body, pressing his lips so close to the green ear that the gesture was almost intimate, as intimate as the act of taking a life always was and always would be.
“No,” Arthas whispered. “No we. No one tells me what to do. I’ve got everything I need from you—now the power is mine and mine alone. Now there is only I. I am the Lich King. And I am ready.”
The orc shuddered in his arms, stunned by the betrayal, and vanished.
Arthas, the Lich King, alone in his glory and power, slowly opened his eyes.
In the manga Legends: Fate, Arthas says, "Ner'zhul is no more. He is consumed. There is only Arthas now..."
During BlizzCon 2010 this is what Metzen said:

I bought the book recently, but didn't had time to read it.
My mistake, sorry! I take back what I said about seeing him again lol. But still, I think that besides Arthas being a strong paladin, there could be a better host after all. Arthas was really smart, even betraying and killing Ner'zhul after he got what he needed and I believe that another host wouldn't do that.
Whelp, I need to read this one. Thanks for the info!
The Lich King is responsible for this: The Burning Legions defeat, Malganis, Illidan, Surfang Jr, Terenas, Uther, Antonaidas and Lordaeron with them. To bad Antonaids wasent in wraith liek in an instance. Would be damn epic. HE killed Keal thaz father, sylvanas, Malygos consort Saphrion. Defeated Vajsh, Kael, Zul Drak trolls, Giant king, Killed an Ancient one = Old gods general in some kind of sort. And had a nhand in almost everthing else. Thats why he was the most dangeroius villian who grow in power of his deafeted victims souls.
It is true actually, Lich King is to this day the only Boss that really killed us. None of them achieved that, none.
That's why Lich King - Ner'zhul/Arthas FTW!
