Is madara uhicha the most powerful ninja in the world next to the 1st hokage??
Given what he has shown so far and aside from Rikudou Sennin and Hashirama. I would say yes he is.
Current Madara might be, but pre-Rinnegan implant Madara definitely isn't as he lost every battle that counted.
Erm....yeah, i'd say he is
