rock lee will be a hokage one day thru shear will and guts :D
he cant do more then 1000 techniques but can kick ass when it comes down to it
also when was mizukage slain?? i thought it was kazekage..didnt zabuza failed at killing the mizukage?
I would actually expect the Mizukage to be utterly, utterly hardcore, all things seem to indicate that Kirigakure is the only other village anywhere near Konoha in terms of military power. Kakashi and Orochimaru have both mentioned the strength of Kirigakure ninjas, it got the nickame "Village of Bloody Mist" for meat-grindering its Genin and it has the seven swordsmen. Kisame and Suigetsu are presumably upper-Jounin plus level ninja, with Zabuza being a strong Jounin and although they've persecuted their Bloodline Limit clans, they had some pretty awesome ones, Haku and Kimimaro (IIRC) so its impressive that they could eradicate them all. The guy who gets to the top of that psycho shark village must be stupendously powerful as well as brutal.
Sunagakure is singularly unimpressive given that Gaara is its most powerful export, Iwagakure seemed to be doing tolerably against Konoha in Kakashi Gaiden flashback, so I wouldn't expect their Tsuchikage to be a pushover... Raikage is the only one we've had no hints on, but c'mon, Lightning Ninja? Got to be something in that.
By the way when we say living Hokage, We are reffering to the Hokage of other countries at the time Sandaime was Hokage of Konoha. At that time Sandaime was the greatest out of the Hokage's of the 5 main villages. This has been stated in the manga. Moreover during his prime, he was so much more powerfull in comparison to other shinobi, that he earnt the title of God of Shinobi (this was probably before yondaime was even born), we learn this from Orichimaru. Its not surprising really, I think generaly Konoha produce the greatest Hokage's and Shinobi's.

Yondaime obviously does not qualify in that list as he was obviously not a Hokage at that time. Basicaly we are comparing one generation of Kage's from across all the main countries. Yondaime obviously does not fit into the comparison because he is too young to have been in the generation we are comparing. Besides, we are only comparing one Hokage at a time, and as Sarutobi was hokage in the time frame we are comparing, how can we add, yondaime to the comparison, this would not make sense as Konoha has only ever had one Hokage at a time.
True. However, Kishi writes the manga not you. If he informs us that yondaime was the greatest ninja Konoha produced, and that Sandaime was the greatest shinobi of his generation, this must be true, for the simple reason that Kishi is in charge of the story line.

My question is, do the other Kages even matter? Really, the other countries release maybe 2-3 great shinobi every other generation. The only other country with Kages that are even close to relevant, is the Sand. Their Kage was beaten, captured and killed. Twice.
Well the other Kages could be strong... We'll never know unless they are introduced... But tbh I want to know more about the Raikage haha sounds so kickass!
