Sabretooth (Victor Creed) is a supervillain, an enemy of Wolverine and, despite being a villain, was a former member of the X-Men.


Sabretooth was a feral mutant trained to be a government black ops agent before going rogue as a killer for hire (or, if it suits his fancy, just a killer).


It is not easy to tell how much of what we know about Victor Creed's early life is true due to the false memories implanted by Weapon X. It is believed that he was abused and chained in the basement by his father after Victor murdered his brother Luther over a piece of pie. While chained in the basement, Victor's father would periodically and brutally remove Victor's canine teeth (or fangs) until the new ones would grow back, replenished by Victor's healing power. Eventually, Victor broke free by chewing of his own hand (which later grew back thanks to the same power that allowed his teeth to regrow) and murdered his father. His mother, meanwhile, was slowly dying of cancer and Victor moved her into a hospital. She survived for quite some time but was eventually murdered by the Red Right Hand, an organization with a vendetta against Wolverine. It was also revealed that Sabretooth had a brother named Saul (a hunter and tracker) and a sister named Clara (an animal handler) who were killed by Nathaniel Essex far from home (Victor would be later told of his siblings' deaths). Whether those events happened before, during or after his father was torturing him is unknown.

With his father dead, Victor was now free to run amok across Canada, travelling through three different provinces, and murdering at least three policemen. In 1883, he traveled to Calgary and took a job laying track on the Canadian Pacific Railway while still a boy at the age of 15, moving into the Yukon over the course of his work for the next 17 years of his life. After tiring of a large co-worker's insults and attempted bullying, he eventually snapped and used his claws to slash him open from his groin to his neck, killing him.

As he grew and moved on from his childhood, he made a name for himself in the Canadian frontier town of the 1910's for his fearsome nature, where he went by the name Sabretooth. The only person who wasn't afraid of Sabretooth was another member of the community named Logan, who had powers similar to Victor.
