Victor Creed was James Howlett's half brother. They fought together as Canadian soldiers in the American Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War. Victor grew increasingly violent and uncontrolled as time passed. During the Vietnam War, he attempted to rape a young Vietnamese woman and then brutally attacked the soldiers who tried to stop him, leading to both he and James being placed in front of a firing squad. They survived, and thus were invited to join Major Stryker's all-mutant team.

James left the team and Victor when he witnessed Stryker's willingness to kill innocent civilians, and Victor's acceptance of this. Victor and Stryker subsequently worked together to capture various mutants, culminating in tricking Logan into agreeing to have adamantium bonded to his skeleton by claiming that Victor had gone rogue and had killed the woman he loved.

Despite the animosity between the James and Victor- made even worse when Stryker revealed that, contrary to his deal with Victor, he couldn't merge adamantium to his skeleton because it would kill him, they fought together to defeat 'Weapon XI'. Victor claimed that only he would get to kill Wolverine, subsequently departing when the battle was over. His brother soon lost his memory.


Creed took the name Sabretooth and began working as a henchman for Magneto. He evolved into an even more bestial creature. He was bigger and stronger, and was unkempt in appearance. He attacked Wolverine in Northern Alberta, but was chased away by Cyclops and Storm. Before departing, he took Wolverine's dog tags. Later, he and Wolverine fought on the Statue of Liberty, where the latter retrieved his tags. He was blasted off the statue by Cyclops and crashed onto a boat.

  • In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Victor is revealed to be the half brother of Wolverine. However, in the movie he is of normal intelligence. It has not yet been revealed how he became an animal or how he lost his memory.It is unclear if Sabretooth remembered his half-brother during the film, as he barely spoke (though taking Wolverine's dog tags could be a sign that he did, in fact, remember). It is possible that he lost his memory due to his further feral mutation, though this is never stated.
  • According to numerous tie-ins to the films, he survived his fall.
  • In the X-Men film Victor Creed is portrayed by Tyler Mane and in the prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine portrayed by Liev Schreiber.
