Sabretooth a cannibal?

#1 Posted by KillerCroc09 (430 posts) - - Show Bio

I was looking up on the Marvel Comic Character name Sabretooth and it said Fictional Cannibals. 
 
Did he really become a Cannibal because he doesn't look like that he is. If anyone knows. Do explain.

Sabretooth is a monster.  He constantly reminds Wolverine what could happen if he gives in to his more primal urges.  Victor is a rapist, murdering, cannibalistic sadist of the highest caliber.  Making him Logan's brother and best buddy is just one of the many horrible story turns of the Wolverine movie. 
All that being said, if Sabes and Wolverine and the other feral mutants actually are evolved from canids rather than primates, then Vic isn't technically a cannibal since they follow a completely different evolutionary past, like a wolf eating a monkey.

Eating another species isn't what makes him a cannibal.  Human beings currently eat different kinds of animal, which is comparitively the same thing as a wolf eating a monkey. 
 
The fact that Sabretooth has devoured human flesh is what makes him a cannibal.  Being a mutant who eats a regular sapien doesn't change the fact that he is a cannibal.  You wouldn't expect Magneto to chow down on the Punisher and claim it wasn't cannibalism because he was a mutant & therefore a different evolved species.  Human is still human, no matter whether they have powers.

@xerox-kitty:
They may not just be mutants though.  They may be a completely different species having decended from wolves and not apes like all other humans and mutants.  If that turns out to be the case then he wouldn't be a cannibal unless he ate wolverine or wildchild or someone like that.

@yodagod: That's pointless.  A human being is still a human being.  It is still cannibalism.  You can't justify it by saying that it's only cannibalism only if he eats other savage & furry mutants.   
 
What you're suggesting is like saying that you've traced your family tree to a genetic ancestry of pigs, and therefore it's okay to eat the genetic descendents of monkeys.  It doesn't matter whether someone is a mutant, flatscan or descended from a squirrel... They are all humans.   
 
Therefore it is still cannibalism if Sabretooth snacks on his brother's neck, or some random stranger in the woods.  You can't justify cannibalism.

The answer is "Only when Loeb is writing" 
 
On another note, Wolverine and Sabertooth are decended from wolves are are destined to fight each other forever because of the color of their hair....also only when Loeb is writing.

Sabertooth just sometimes eats people he kills or defeats. Like Mac Gargan does sometimes

I think Sabretooth just utilizes in all his features and abilities, I mean if your hands were occupied in pinning your pray down, wouldn't you use your mouth to make the kill move. The jugular vein's easy to get to, and a person 'll bleed out quickly once it's hit.  But in the picture with Wolvie going "SABRETOOTH!" Sabes probably gave the final blow (kill bit to the neck) to hear Kayla (I think that's Kayla) so he could hear her scream right in his ear. He likes making his prey suffer before they die. He enjoys to hear them scream, feel them writhe in pain, smell their fear, taste their blood, and see the life in them fade. It gives him a rush. Sabretooth does what he feels is good to him. And he keeps doing it due to that's probably the only thing that brings him happiness (I know it sounds sick but we all do things over and over that makes us happy) and he doesnt care if it's wrong, he'll keep doing it till he's finally stopped (god I hated it when he was finally killed off TT^TT).
 
In the pic with a younger Sabretooth in it, his mother came into the kitchen/dining room right after he got into a tussle with his brother ( I read X-men origins Sabretooth), he didn't have time to take a bite out of that pie. But that doesn't much prove that he's a cannibal, only that he likes killing up close and personal, and that he revels in the kill. It's also in the nature of the mutant that he is. He has literally embraced the feral side of him in every aspect, but he does know the difference between animal and human flesh. And like any of us, he prefers meat from an animal than a human. And like a man, he loves the occasional lay every now and then, he did it  with Mystique, and raped Kayla (probably to claim her due to he wants to take everything away from Wolvie) and then kill her to prove that any woman he tries to love will either die or suffer (he did it with Yukio and paralyzed her) even children he takes in as his own (I think he killed Amiko). He wants what he can't have, a woman and possibly a child (read X-Men Unlimted #40... right near the end of the section title "Animals" and you'll see what I mean) and if he figures if he can't have what he wants, why the hell should Wolverine have he wants. It's a competitive thing and a jealousy factor. He's always trying to outdo Wolverine. Competition is his thing, and if it takes killing with every part of him, he'll do it to prove he's dominant. But any of this doesn't prove he's a cannibal, only that he hunts like an animal, he kills like one, yet he has the desires of a man. Simply put.
