Every year, he beats Wolverine to an inch of his life. You won’t find a sicker, more dangerous person in the Marvel Universe. But why? Why is he so vicious? Why is he so brutal?

    While the idea of a Sabretooth "origin" story is a fairly hard one to stretch, the issue does, at least, deliver one. Consider that ten years down the line you could potentially point someone at this comic and say "this explains why Sabretooth and Wolverine hate each other" and it'll still ring as true then as it does today. That, surely, has to be the litmus test of an "Origins" one-shot, and certainly on that level, the comic is an undeniable success. Read Full Review

    All in all this was an enjoyable read. It didnt really do too much for the character of Sabretooth, but it was entertaining. Anyone who enjoys Sabretooth or Wolverine stories will enjoy this book, but with a $3.99 price tag youre probably going to need to be a really hardcore Wolvie fan. Otherwise Id steer clear of this one-shot. Read Full Review

    Villains have been having a nice run of things over at Marvel. Norman Osborn runs the joint, Magneto's Testament mini-series was uniformly impressive, and even Loki's having a blast over in Thor. I had high hopes for Victor Creed as well, especially considering Kieron Gillen's hip, inventive past. But X-Men Origins: Sabretooth is a lightweight, unnecessary book that fails to say anything new or fresh about the old character. Read Full Review
