Elektra – The Hand | Comics

The master ninja assassin of Greek descendant Elektra arrives at a mystical resurrection event performed on one of their fallen member by “The Hand” with another member of the clan.

But the member then starts disclosing a secret dark origin of their organization to her that is almost centuries old. It all started in Kyushu, Japan back in 1575, when there lived a boy named Kagenobu Yoshioka, whose father was once a brave samurai warrior. The boy is always taunted by his fellow companions that his mother is selling herself to the foreigners for their entertainment so that she could support the family and his father's legacy is a lie.

This is a truth, the boy could not handle at all and he knocked the boy off. Kagenobu then rushed to his home only to find the hot-gossip about his mother to be very true. There the boy found his mother being assaulted by a foreigner and he murdered the man in the heat of the event to protect his mother from his barbaric progression.

Seeing the bravery of her boy she took all the blame onto herself and saved him from being accused for the crime but committing suicide in the end. This tragic event however, scarred the boy’s mind for ever. He went on a journey to be a warrior and eradicate all the foreign plagues from Japan, thus avenging his mother and honor her memory.

Soon, in New York, she earned the place of Kingpin’s top assassin and encountered her former lover Daredevil again.

One of Kingpin’s former hitman Bullseye impaled her with her own sais in retaliation to get his old position back. She was resurrected and revived by Stone, yet she did not appear to Matt for years. She even tangled with the feral mutant Wolverine several times; especially when he lost his Adamantium and also when he went rogue as “The Enemy of the State” after being re-programmed by Hydra.

She was then captured and replaced by the Skrulls before their “Secret Invasion” on Earth which is revealed after the imposter died in a battle with New Avengers. Norman Osborn's Dark Reign brought her imprisonment to a H.A.M.M.E.R. facility, which she escaped soon. She is offered a place in the ranks of the newly reformed Thunderbolts strike team alongside Agent Venom, Deadpool, Red Hulk, Punisher and The Leader.

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".
