And that's exactly why he should've went back to being dead. This new "development" risks breaking the entire story. The ONLY thing that MIGHT have a chance at defeating him is a partnership between Kurama-Naruto (with more than 5 minutes, I hope) and Fully-Susanoo'd-Sasuke (via power up on ninja scroll).

That had better be the reason that Madara is still a thing right now...
Yes he is.

well if the ultimate ending is a fight between naruto and sasuke then i'm feeling that tobi or mandara might teach sasuke how to summon full susano and then it would be bijuu vs full susano. because mandara did mention that only the bijuu would be comparable with the full susano. I dont really see sasuke having a chance against naruto unless he has something like full susano.
So this isn't a typo?

Immortals never end up good in the narutoverse. Instead of being killed, they are immobilized by different ways (sealed, sent to the center of earth, etc). And being so, sentenced to eternal boredom. Eternity is looooong.
As an alternative to a seal, Izanami would be powerful enough to stop Madara. Tobi (powerful ushiha with a large set of eyes in jars) and Sasuke (with Itachi eyes, and having seen how to use it) might be able to use it on Madara. I don't see any of those two attacking Madara now anyway.
Maybe Dan had time to transmit a tool/jetsu to Tsunade. Something to defeat Madara with...
As said before, options are numerous at this point.
No he could not because Kabuto could theoretically counter him and could limit his movements like he did with the other Edo's but because he was trapped in Izanami it left an opening.

Kages are low on chakra, they barely stand. Beside Naruto and Sasuke, there isn't anyone remotely close to even hit Madara... if Kabuto were to be redeemed, I guess he could pull out his other Trump Card, after all he has two sleeves ;P. You know which one, after all, there is only one person that can stop Madara, kukukukuku. It's time to revive the legend.
Kabuto knows where Yamato is held together with the Hashirama soulless clone, if he wants to redeem himself by at least stopping Madara, then this is one of the possibilities. He was able to easily revive the legend of Madara's and Hashirama's power in addition to Rinnegan in one ET body, it should be simple for him to boost Yamato beyond what Hashirama was at his prime .
