PS: Kabuto wasn't trying to kill them ether. He wanted to regain control of Itachi & take Sasuke's body.
PPS: Kabuto dealt Itachi blows that would have been fatal had he not been an Edo Golem.
Hashirama would own anyone in the manga until proven otherwise.
I won't argue on itachi bs kabuto you're to hard headed as am I so I stay away from debating you on subjects i know we won't agree on past experiences teach you good things lol.
You think hashirama would own a guy who owned the 8 tails by himself and came to a stalemate? Hmm idk hashirama hasn't really shown anything that can get through that barrier.
