History: The full origin of Sabretooth is unknown. However, his real name
is believed to be Victor Creed, and he is a superhumanly powerful mutant.
Sabretooth is said to be the ultimate warrior and survivor, and for years
he has been driven by psychotic needs to hunt, fight, and kill other human
Apparently Victor Creed was psychologically abused by his father, who
confined him to the dark basement of their home.
At one point Victor Creed became the student of the man called the
Foreigner, who became the head of the world's leading organization of
At some point over thirty-five years ago Creed had an affair with
another superhuman mutant, Mystique, and they had a son, Graydon Creed,
who headed the anti-mutant organization called the Friends of Humanity and
ran for the presidency of the United States before his recent assassination.
In the early 1960s Creed was a special operative for the Central
Intelligence Agency, who apparently gave him the code name Sabretooth.
In the C.I.A. Creed frequently worked in partnership with two other
superhuman mutant agents, Logan, code-named Wolverine, and David North,
code-named Maverick. Other special agents with
whom they were associated in Team X included John Wraith, Mastodon, and
Silver Fox. All had been subjects of the still mysterious Weapon X
project, a program seemingly run by the United States government to create
a team of super-soldiers. Apparently the Weapon X project scientists
introduced an age suppression factor into the D.N.A. of Sabretooth and the
other Team X members that retarded their aging, as well as having another
operative, Aldo Ferro, give them false memory implants for reasons that
remain unclear. Hence, Sabretooth cannot trust all of his own memories.
Creed had a falling out with Logan and North during a mission in Berlin
in the early 1960s. Since then, Sabretooth and Wolverine have been mortal
In Sabretooth's first recorded exploit as a costumed criminal, he held
the celebrated lawyer Jeryn Hogarth captive. Hogarth's client Daniel Rand,
in his costumed identity of Iron Fist, fought and defeated Sabretooth, thus
helping to rescue Hogarth (Iron Fist #14).
Later, Sabretooth formed a partnership with another costumed criminal,
the Constrictor. However, driven by his psychotic needs, Sabretooth
disguised himself and stalked victims in New York City, murdering them
with a knife, thus giving rise to newspaper reports of a mysterious
Slasher. Private investigator Misty Knight happened upon one of
Sabretooth's attacks and fought him. This led to subsequent battles
between Sabretooth and the Constrictor on one side and Knight's friends
Iron Fist and Luke Cage, alias Power Man, on the other.
Later, Sabretooth sought to join the Foreigner's organization. Sabretooth
tracked down the costumed adventurer the Black Cat, who had clashed with
some of the Foreigner's men, but Spider-Man saved the Black Cat and
Subsequently, Sabretooth joined the Marauders, a cadre of superhuman
assassins who worked for the mysterious Mister Sinister.
Mister Sinister assigned the Marauders to massacre the underground
community of mutants called the Morlocks. In the course of
helping to carry out this massacre, Sabretooth once again encountered and
fought Wolverine. This led to a series of subsequent battles between the
two long time enemies.
The X-Men finally captured Sabretooth, and their leader, Professor
Charles Xavier, undertook trying to help Sabretooth overcome his psychotic
impulses, just as the X-Men had aided Wolverine in controlling his own
tendency towards berserker rage. Infuriated at
discovering Sabretooth at Xavier's mansion, Wolverine battled Sabretooth
and seemingly injured Sabretooth's brain with a thrust of one of his
claws. Afterwards, Sabretooth seemed unusually passive and peaceful, and
Boomer, one of the members of X-Force, developed a fondness for him. However, Sabretooth recovered his true personality
while pretending to remain docile, and finally turned against Boomer and
the X-Men, mortally wounding Psylocke.
Later, the United States government made Sabretooth a member of the
second version of X-Factor, the government's team of superhuman mutant
operatives. Certain people in the government secretly
intended Sabretooth to serve as a sleeper agent to kill the other
members of X-Factor if the government deemed them to be out of control.
However, Sabretooth was forced to wear an electronic restraining collar
designed by X-Factor's resident inventor Forge that contained a nerve
inhibitor which would administer a severe shock to Sabretooth's nervous
system if he turned aggressive towards another person or tried to take off
the collar. Eventually, however, thanks to pills he obtained
that helped him resist the pain, Sabretooth succeeded in removing the
collar. He savagely assaulted several other members of X-Factor and then
Sabretooth remains at large, continuing to wreak havoc.
Note: The character of Sabretooth appeared in the X-Men movie, as well as the X-Men and X-Men:
Evolution television series.
Powers: Sabretooth can regenerate damaged or destroyed
areas of his cellular structure at a rate far greater than that of an
ordinary human being. His fast healing ability makes him virtually
immune to poisons and to most drugs. Sabretooth also has a limited
immunity to the fatigue poisons generated by bodily activity; hence he has
greater endurance than any ordinary human being.
Sabretooth has superhumanly acute senses (of sight, hearing, smell, and
taste, although perhaps not of touch), comparable to those of certain
animals. For example, he can track someone by smell just as a dog or a
wolf can. In part Sabretooth's superhuman senses comprise a separate
superhuman power of his, but they are also due in part to his power of
fast cellular regeneration. Sabretooth's night vision is preternaturally
sensitive, containing twice the average human being's area of
light-gathering retina, and extends into the infrared portion of the
electromagnetic spectrum. His hearing is extraordinarily acute, able to
detect light breathing in a cave at 200 feet. His sense of taste can
detect 1 part of foreign matter in 10,000. His highly developed olfactory
sense and memory allow him to detect and track a scent over eight hours
old (possibly a concentration of 20 parts per million) that he had not
been exposed to for up to several months previously. Dilute, common odors
of perspiration, perfumes, cigarettes, candies, and food are beacons to
his senses. Sabretooth ages at a very slow rate.
Sabretooth's claws and teeth are strong enough to rend through
substances as durable as bone.
