Edo Hashirama is still inferior
So People really believe Edo Hashirama can beat Edo Madara? when they fought they were practically even, the slighter edge went to Hashirama because of his Stamina.
Madara now has The Rinnegan and Mokuton along with his EMS abilities.........Rinnegan stabilized in conjunction with Perfect Susano'o?
Madara has far surpassed Hashirama, any other Shinobi for that Matter. People misinterpret what Madara was saying about Hashirama, he was simply saying the only person that could POSSIBLY defeat him WAS Hashirama(mind you he only fought him for his DNA?)
Regardless of Madara's praise of Hashirama as his rival, he is unbeatable, the Rinnegan overwhelms him and Mokuton counters His.
