What point r u trying to prove in this thread?? The same could be said...It was back then....BACK THEN HE WAS NO MATCH AGAINST MINATO! learn to accept the fact that minato > A. Now that A has white hair and black back then because his power at that time he didnt have that much power. He wasnt at par with Minato and probably wouldnt have today itself if he was alive....who knows what minato would have developed in terms of various jutsus and techniques and chakra levels...just saying the facts.
