Page 1:
Title: Where everything started!

Madara: The first man to hold the title of "Hokage," Hashirama...
he, and his clan, the Senju...

were respected by every other shinobi clan as being the best.
Respected...and feared.

Text: Senju and Uchiha clash!

Page 2:
Madara: When they made a move, we made a move.

Ours was the only clan capable of standing up to them.
If one country hired the Senju, their enemies hired the Uchiha.

And through my constant fights with him,
I became pretty famous, myself.

Itachi: To reach even greater heights,
and to measure my capacity.

Page 3:
Sasuke: You stole your brother's eyes...
just to make your self famous?!

Madara: ...I did...
But only to gain the power I needed to protect the clan.

Sasuke: PROTECT them?

Madara: As our fame and reputation spread, our enemies increased.
In an era of unrelenting war,
his eyes were sacrificed for the sake of protecting his bretheren from outside threats, like the Senju.

It was never about fame.

Page 4:
Madara: My younger brother accepted his role,
and willingly gave his eyes to me.

SFX: Clench

Madara: But one day,
the Senju approached and proposed a truce.

...And the Uchiha accepted.
Lower left text: Uchiha

Page 5:
Madara: Both our clans were fed up with the constant fighting.
Everyone had had enough.

I ended up being the lone voice of dissension

"What happened to the hatred we had for them?!"
"What did my brother sacrifice his eyes for?!"

The Uchiha and the Senju were like oil and water...and the truce changed nothing.

Page 6:
Madara: I was adamant that the Senju would eventually destroy us all...
but no one else took my side.

The Uchiha wanted peace,
and as their leader, I had to follow their will.

Soon after, our newly-formed alliance
was employed by the Fire Country to help stabilize its borders.

And with that, the system of one Hidden Village per country got its start.
The Fire Country and the Hidden Leaf Village.

Page 7:
Madara: The surrounding nations started copying our system,
and slowly but surely, the violence stopped.

For once, we had real peace.

But the Leaf itself was thrust into chaos
because of a certain incident.

Sasuke: ...What was it?

Madara: The selection of the village's leader...the First Hokage.

Page 8:
Madara: As you already know, the honor fell to Senju Hashirama.
Every villager AND people from all over the Fire Country supported him.

It was clear to me that he would slowly strip the Uchiha of their rights and power.

I knew, as their leader, that the only way to protect the clan
was to stand up against Hashirama.

But not a single person stood with me.

They claimed I was trying to re-ignite the old flames of war,
and turned their backs on me.

Page 9:
Madara: They came to despise me, painting me as a greedy opportunist.
They said I was motivated only by lust for power, and that I had stolen my brother's eyes to save my own life.

What kind of monster would hurt his beloved younger brother?!
All I ever wanted was to protect the Uchiha clan!

...Betrayed by everyone,
I abandoned the village.

Page 10:
Madara: I took on a new role, an avenger, and I challenged the Hidden Leaf Village by myself.

Page 11: Badass

Page 12:
Madara: ...and I lost.
The spot of my defeat became known as "The Valley of the End"

I died there...
or so they all believed.
Even Hashirama was convinced.

I faded from everyone's memories, and from history itself.

To deter anyone else from following in my footsteps, Hashirama's younger brother, the Second Hokage
gave the Uchiha special roles in the village as a sign of good faith.

Page 13:
Madara: They were made into the Leaf's Military Police.

But even that was a means to keep them out of government affairs.
They were simply being grouped together to make keeping an eye on them easier.

Some of our clansmen finally noticed
and thought to stage a rebellion, as I had.
Tomb: MADARA

Madara: ...but by then, it was too late.

As the years passed, the Senju came to control everything.
The once proud Uchiha were now nothing more than the Senju's playthings.

Page 14:
Madara: EVERYTHING I tried to warn them about came true.
And finally, the last straw - the event that sealed the Uchiha clan's fate.

You know all about it...

The Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's appearance 16 years ago.
Kyuubi: GRHAAAAAA

Page 15:
Sasuke: Are you serious?

Madara: Only our eye techniques are capable of controlling the Nine-Tails.

So the Leaf's upper echelon
suspected that an Uchiha was behind the attack.

In actuality, it was just a freak occurrence. A natural disaster.
The Uchiha were completely blameless.

But the seeds of doubt had been sown.
They believed the Uchiha had set their sights on controlling the village.

Page 16:
Madara: The surveillance would need to be more thorough than a few ANBU.

The clan's land was moved to a remote corner of the village.
They had effectively been quarantined

The Third Hokage was the only one to voice any disapproval
but his two advisors and the ANBU leader, Danzou, overruled him.

In the end, no one trusted the Uchiha.
And the discrimination began.

Being treated so poorly led to a lot of bad blood.
And the Leaf's suspicions eventually became fact.

Page 17:
Madara: The Uchiha came together
and started organizing a coup d'etat... [H: HFS IT'S SASUKe'S DAD]

Madara: So the Leaf's leaders planted a spy amongst them.

They chose your older brother...Uchiha Itachi.
And that is where his life went from ordinary to a living hell.

Side: The origins of a village's peril...One that sucked Itachi into a black void of terror and war!
