A Little History

Sabretooth had a history that would make Child and Family Services cringe.  It was so bad that they would have removed him from his home and sent him across the world to live.

His father repeatedly beat him and tied him up in the basement…just like 50 Shades of Grey, minus the sex.

His power to rapidly heal has slowed his aging process down to a crawl.  He is resistant to many, if not all disease and has survived the last century.  In fact, if you watch any documentary on any of the World War’s you are sure to see him.

Picture this:

The year is 1910 and Sabretooth can be found wandering the Canadian Frontier.  His wandering runs him into a man named Logan, whom he suspects has similar powers to his own.  He looks to his left and notices that Logan is accompanied by a fine, young woman named Silver Fox.  Jealousy forms and he takes it upon himself to attack and rape her to the point of death.

The only logical thought to enter Logan’s mind is “What would Chuck Norris do?”

Well, is no Chuck Norris aficionado, but he would suspect Chuck would kick some ass.

If you have read any of my other Comic Book Biographies, you might be able to guess what becomes of the dead Silver Fox.

She lives!

Fast forward 50 years and the year is 1960 (or thereabouts).  A superpowered team is formed under the name of Team X (yes, ‘X’. This is an X-Men story).  Sabretooth would be reunited (and it felt so good) with Logan and Silver Fox, with none of them remembering their past because of memory implantation.  As would be a recurring trend, Logan and Sabretooth had a falling out.

Eventually, he finds himself acquainted with Mystique (who actually isn’t as pleasant as she seems in the Fox Movies).  It was during this time that she seduces him in order to become pregnant with a child.

Like most men out there, Sabretooth allows the seduction to happen.

9 short months pass and they are blessed with a baby boy named Graydon.

I don’t know about you but when my son was born, it was the happiest day of my life.  Unfortunately for the mutant couple, she gives birth to a mutant-hating son named Graydon Creed.

SabretoothIf you need to know anything about Sabretooth, know this: Sabretooth has a lust for violence.  This lust was put on display in the well-known storyline entitled, Mutant Massacre.  Sabretooth was brought on by the Marauders to slaughter the underground, disfigured mutants known as the Morlocks.  If it weren’t for the X-Men intervening and more specifically, Wolverine, they might have accomplished their mission.  Within the pages of the Mutant Massacre, Wolverine and Sabretooth fought harder than Rocky and Apollo Creed, with Wolverine coming out as the victor.

Like a drug addict seeking help, Sabretooth has repeatedly sought help with his blood-thirsty, violent ways.

He has employed the two below methods.

  1. He hired a telepath named Birdy to keep him in check. Unfortunately, Birdy would meet the demise that so many others in comics meet.  She would be killed.

Her killer?

Graydon Creed, who by now is a full-time mutant hater.

  1. By Professor Charles Xavier.  Charles assumed that because he was able to help Wolverine in a similar fashion, he could help Sabretooth.

He was WRONG in the most colossal of ways.

His blunder was so bad that it nearly left Psylocke dead.

Sabretooth and Wolverine, believe it or not, battled again.   Rocky and Apollo did it in Rocky 2, so why can’t they?

X-Men 212Let me sum it up for you:

  1. Sabretooth runs into Wolverine
  2. They fight
  3. Most times Wolverine wins
  4. Sabretooth moves on
  5. Repeat

Ladies and Gentlemen, the comics have given us some of the most memorable hero/enemy storylines:

  1. Bullseye vs Daredevil
  2. Mr. Sinister vs Cyclops
  3. Magneto vs Professor X
  4. Apocalypse vs Cable

But they all pale in comparison to Sabretooth vs Wolverine.

The only storyline that might come close (if I ever get around to writing it) would be an unsuspecting sandwich and myself.

One last thing:  Over time, he would be bestowed with the same metal that is linked to Wolverine’s bones.

Scott’s Notes:

  1. Sabretooth allegedly kills Silver Fox
  2. Wolverine and Sabretooth fight
  3. The join Team X
  4. Wolverine and Sabretooth fight
  5. Sabretooth impregnates Mystique
  6. They have a mutant-hating son named Graydon
  7. Wolverine and Sabretooth fight
  8. Attempts are made to control him

  10. Apollo beats Rocky
  11. Wolverine and Sabretooth fight
  12. Rocky beats Apollo
