This is the masked man when Itachi meets him.
And this is madara in the latest chapter Notice the position of his hand the way he is standing.
This not the first time he poses like this.
At the bottom of the second pic he does it again while there are other times i think you get the point Madara seems to stand like this out of habit its just how he rocks.I think the long hair is also a dead give away and if we have learned anything by now its you can always tell who is who by the hair just ask Obito fans.
Now Madara as seen in the lastest chapter clearly knows Obito which makes it possible he probably was the one that saved him. Going skiping into the future.
The only Ninja in the village that notice Madara presents was Itachi who confronted him And Made a Packed in order to Stop the coup d'etat from going down and all out war from breaking loose.
Now Some time between the Masscare and Itachi's death THE REAL MADARA DIES!!! We know this because he was brought back from the pure world Via Edo Tensei The guy who survives a Epic battle with the 1st hokage and lived all those years after not even a white hair on his head in the flashback with Itachi just goes like that.
Further More Itachi Mysteriously Gets sick out of nowhere and is now dying from some Unknown NINJA AIDS during the time span period in Which Madara dies.
Now its possible that The AIDS could of come from Susnaoo like some have speculated but susnaoo killing you was never confirmed it just ****ed you up as seen with sasuke if you spam continuesly on end.Sasuke didn't cough up blood or anything but i geusss it still possible. also madara seem to have susnaoo for while before EMS he didn't die from NINJA AIDS he just went blind.So Susnaoo overuse is very unlikily since we have seen it overused before and nothing happend to them like what happend to Itachi.
This makes sense why Nidaime Tobi(Obito) was so Shook that he wouldn't make any moves until Itachi just died when the deal wasn't even made with him It was made with Shodi Tobi(Madara)
It also validates the idea that he kept secrets from Itachi such as there are 2 Tobi's.A secret best kept by keeping ones distance.but itachi figured this out some how and set a failsafe.
This Whole mystery on how Madara actually was finally killed just smells Of betryal and Murder with student killing former His Former Treacherous teacher all over it.
It could be when Itachi got wind of Madara plots and plans or when madara flat out tried to get Itachi to join his side.
A EPIC battle in sued of Pupil and master in which Itachi came out on top And proved to be far beyond Madara in his current condition but madara being the lengendary Madara who has seen it all and been thru it all in battle Possiblely would not go down without one last trick up sleeve.
Enter Sick Itachi.
Also another clue is that Itachi once called modern Madara weak and pathetic.
This is Somthing that he would not know unless well of course he had some type of battle with him in the past or has seen the full scale of what he could do.
So what do you think?
