A Little History
First appearing in Iron Fist #14 back in 1977, Sabretooth has become the quintessential enemy to Wolverine.
Very little is known about Victor Creed. What we do know is that he was the subject of torture and abuse at the hands of his father. His father did this because he was upset, ashamed, and hated the fact that his son was a mutant.
Creed, much like his counterpart, Wolverine, possesses an accelerated ability to heal, incredibly accurate senses, and razor-sharp claws. Because he has the ability to heal, he is practically immune to disease, and ages at a decelerated rate.
He first encountered Wolverine during his adult years. Seeing that Wolverine was happy and being jealous of his relationship with Silver Fox, he took it upon himself to exact make Wolverine’s life miserable. He assaulted, raped, and beat Silver Fox to the point of death. Looking for revenge, Wolverine vows to kill Sabretooth but is unable to see past his anger. Because of this, Wolverine loses the battle.
In 1960, a super-powered team is formed under the name of Team X. On the team lies Sabretooth, Wolverine, and Silver Fox (now alive). Due to memory implantation, none of them remembered who or what they were. More than that, none of them remembered each other. As almost always, it wouldn’t take long before Wolverine and Sabretooth had a falling out.
Eventually, Sabretooth was coerced by Mystique to get her pregnant. In 9 short months, As is the theme for his life, Mystique gave birth to a mutant-hating human known as Graydon.
Sabretooth is the by-product of multiple lifetimes filled with hate, anger, and distrust. He is violent, incomprehensible and will stop at nothing to exact his revenge on Wolverine and humanity. While Wolverine has some humanity left within his soul, he does not. His thirst for blood in unrivaled and nothing can or will stop him from getting what he wants.
