Re: Double standard of Fanboys
He took his brother's eyes after he died and gained EMS. That didn't take years of prep. He didn't want that to happen, but was desperate and going blind, so he did. Nonetheless, that's a handout.

He read what was on the Uchiha tablet and then acted accordingly and manipulated Obito. Then he died, he was basically winging it. Obito nearly even screwed him over, had Kabuto not brought back Madz as an Edo, he would have been done & his plan would have failed.
Madara does prep, but it is not coming only from his own intelligence. He's following instructions on a tablet. That and he's very determined/lucky. That's why he's gotten this far.
Sasuke and Naruto actually worked harder for the powerups themselves than Madara did. People just like to scrutinze the main characters more and tend to praise OP villains. It'll change once Madara loses though (which is inevitable), you'll see him lose fans and people will bash him.
