I'll say the Kage for the sake of argument.

How?

Well, We never saw Naruto face multiple opponents in this form. Especially not multiple opponents of this level. Naruto isn't exactly known for strategy, and it would take exactly that to fight these 5. A's speed, Onoki's Dust Release, Mei's Acid Release, and Gaara's large scale Sand attacks are all things Naruto can't beat with sheer destructive force. He will also have to deal with Tsunade's strength and ability to heal her teammates.

Let's also not forget that these 5 have been alive a lot longer and have much more battle experience than he does. He is far and away the strongest ninja here, but strength does not always guarantee victory.

I also want to note, just in case it is brought up, that Madara's body regenerated infinitely and had a limitless supply of chakra when he faced all 5 kage. Naruto has neither of those advantages, so I see him having a much harder time.

How does iceman deal with genjutsu?

This is an interesting question. It all depends really. I don't remember Kakashi or Madara using Genjutsu in combat on a consistent basis. However, they are both capable, they just rather rely on Taijutsu and Ninjutsu. This is especially true for Madara, as I don't recall him using a single Genjutsu in sage mode, though I could be wrong.

As for the Genjutsu itself, most of them have a trigger for the jutsu to activate. For instance, the movement of a finger, a look into the eyes, or physical touch. For Iceman, out of all the x-men, here to be caught by it's specific trigger is unlikely. Even if they did catch him in a Genjutsu, Psylocke's TP would make it obvious quite fast that it's just an illusion. So, for a Genjutsu to be relevent, Psylocke would already have to be put down.

As for the battle in question, I think this is a pretty solid win for X-Men. Their versatility is much to high for the ninjas.

Madara used genjutsu against raikage when they were fighting and he also casted the infinite tsukuyomi when fighting sasuke and naruto. So I would say it is in character for Madara to use. As for psylocke Madara at this point in the series is way faster than any of them. He was able to keep up with Naruto and sasuke who were able to run from the sand village all the way to the valley of the end in the time it took the sage of six paths to say his speech to kakashi.

That and Madaras limbo clones mean he can attack multiple members and psylocke isn't going to last long against them.

You are correct on the raikage part, however Infinite tsukuyomi was planned out for many years and he told them he was going to use it several times before he actually did it. It certainly isn't a genjutsu he could use against the X team. That jutsu requires a lot of prep, which he doesn't have here, so it's not really what I was referring too.

Running speed and combat speed are a different thing. I'm sure Storm, Iceman, and Rogue(Ms. Marvel powers) have a good chance of doing similar stunts considering their individual feats of travel speed. We never saw anything during combat to suggest they were moving faster than the X-Men could handle. Psylocke also has Tk, Storm has winds, and Iceman could drop the temperature, so their movement speed could be reduced if need be.

As for his Limbo clones, I don't remember their capabilities to be honest. Mind refreshing my memory?

Cough cough lol

IMO who think have made very good ones and are quite often with it are:

@WillPayton: @XiiX: @Highaccuser: @serrure: @reaverlations: Nimmindtricks: @oreoassasin: etc.

I agree with most of these and as modern would go would add @lukehero

Would add @k4tzm4n for some of the best god damn battles ever posed on this or any other forum. Some others from back in the day would include @jake_fury ; @nelomaxwell (uses more independent characters); and @strafe_prower and @morpheus_ (added in edit after my ginormous oversight was pointed out by @dane

Tournaments @dedmanwalkin; @retnex; @ghostrider2 (or it might have been 1); @raineffect; @diredrill

Scenarios @dane (god); @lunacyde; @erik ; @dedmanwalkin again.

Thanks for the kind words old friend. I could say the same of you.
