I guess it depends on who's hype you believe more. I would give the edge to Hashirama since he did beat Madara back in the day. Hiruzen however was heavily praised in Part 1 as being this genius shinobi. Getting the nickname the "professor" and several confirming that if not for his old age he would have beaten Orochimaru, even with his Edo Tensei's. It's really about hype. Part 1 never hyped Hashirama up like part 2 did. And I feel the only reason Hashirama got his hype is because of what a monster Kishi made out of Madara and his powers breaking ever ninja scale possible. Because before part 2, the only legendary Hokages names you ever heard were Minato and Hiruzen. The Hashirama and Tobirama didn't even have names back in part 1.
