Re: The Mystery Man is not Kabuto
Karin had a bad feeling. Bad feeling is not the same as that the mysterious person is evil.

DSM is a dark/evil sage mode. Juugo is in essence a good person, but when he transforms, his chakrachanges completely. Kabuto is using Juugo's power in sage mode, however, Kabuto doesnt lose himself unlike Juugo. Besides, ones judgement gets clouded when worried. Karin is incredibly worried about Sasuke right now and therefore she might not be that accurate in her sensing and judgment.
Kabuto's story isnt finished yet. Kishi wont just leave him in Izanami till the end of the manga.
Kabuto will redeem himself. Even in death, Itachi has again, left help behind for his little brother Sasuke.
Kabuto is gonna help Sasuke.
There is a good opportunity to reintroduce Kabuto right now.
The aura shown is most likely a sage mode aura (its similar to how Naruto's frog sage aura was drawn vs Pain).
Kabuto sage mode aura.
Kabuto is arguably the best medic alive right now (both offensive and defensively).
Sasuke isnt in good shape as you noticed. Kabuto is familiar with the curse seal and sage mode. Sasuke has Juugo's
flesh in his chest. Kabuto has loads of knowledge of the sage, sharingan, mokuton, Juugo and the curse seal, anti mokuton poison, anti dojutsu abilities. There is so much that Kabuto can do right now.
Why would a probably 1000 or more years old Older son of the sage, suddenly arrive at this point in the story?
The manga is nearing its end. It is not likely, that a character like the Older son is introduced in this part of the story.
It would need loads of backup info what he has been doing all this time and why. How he survived etc.
A character like that cant play some minor role either. Kishi basically needs to start a big story almost from scratch for the Older son. He cant just help Sasuke and be like ''okay here is an upgrade and I saved you, good luck bye'' or play some other minor role. If he is introduced, he will need to have a major role, unlike Kabuto. We already know his history. Kishi only has to finish the story of Kabuto. That is something that will fit more in this part of the series.
We have Spiral zetsu with the insides. Madara in Juubi jinc form. Naruto dying. Sasuke dying. Obito in trouble.
Kakashi, Minato, Sakura and Gaara with their hands full. Introducing a new character like the Older son, will just be to much. Reintroducing a character like Kabuto, who only needs his story to be finished by Kishi just fits way better.
