Sabretooth | Comics

Victor Creed was a mutant who was abused by his father for his feral mutation all his childhood and in return he killed him before fleeing home. He grew up to be a blood-lusty person who would meet his life-long arch-nemesis Wolverine when he attacked the Blackfoot tribe Logan was staying with and killed his lover Silverfox after brutally raping her.

During the mid-60's, he joined Team X and received the code-name Sabretooth. Later, he got recruited by Gambit in Mr. Sinister’s team of Marauders for the infamous “Mutant Massacre”. Professor Xavier took Creed to X-Mansion, seeking for his redemption but he escapes injuring Psylocke and Archangel. Soon, Sabretooth is forcibly rolled in a government funded X-Factor but he only left a trail of bodies behind.

Apocalypse pitted Sabretooth and Wolverine in a fight to chose his Horseman of Death. Not only he lost the battle, his adamantium was given to Logan. When he was chased by the Children of the Vault, Sabretooth came looking for sanctuary and joined the X-Men, only to betray them next. Logan apparently killed him but Creed later resurfaced as the leader of Hand (Back In Japan) with Mystique.

Following Professor X's death during “Avengers Vs. X-Men”, Magneto joined Cyclops' team of X-Men and Mystique proceed to reform the Brotherhood with Victor. Sabretooth eventually took his enemy’s mantle after the "Death of Wolverine". As the moral AXIS of heroes were inverted, Magneto enlisted him alongside Carnage, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Loki and others.
