So naruto is the reincarnation of asura after the previous reincarnation (hashirama) died. But naruto didn't get any godly powers.. All of narutos powers come from the kyubi or what he learned from the toads he doesn't have any powers of his own. I guess the history of asura explains that a little.. In that asura used to be lame until his power awakened after making loads of friends (lame btw) but I'm pretty sure hashirama didn't have to make a lot of friends first. His power is in his genetics like we've seen countless times.
Story doesn't add up properly. It's trying to give a reason for everything (like someone here said) but it isn't smart enough not to fall apart once you look deeper
