Re: Do Not Underestimate Uchiha Obito
Out of all the angles people take to bash a character, this "stolen power" thing has to be one of the worst, especially in this manga.
I agree that Obito is supposed to represent a counter to Naruto. Both of them dreamed of the future and protecting their friends throughout their childhood. But fate such as Madara's words have changed Obito into more of a realist that would gladly put down the free will of humanity if that means everybody can live a world without pain and suffering. The scene seems to be set for Naruto vs. Obito, and not just in strength but also in words as well. Heck Naruto was losing the verbal battle once Neji died. He needed the help of his friends for support, which isn't a bad thing since it goes along with his philosophy.
These panels help expand on it too
Now Obito can't take credit for everything like the Plan now, but he's still a key piece to the story. If Obito's opinions disagree from Madara's, something's bound to happen.
