i dont get why wolverine cant win a battle against sabretooth, i mean... besides the adrenaline factor sabretooth gots, whats hes special ability?
wolverine vs sabretooth = easy fight?
he is strong, he heals as fast as logan does, He is larger, fast, and has given in to the blood lust of the animal within himself. That makes him a powerful mutant. logan (to my knowlage) hasnt given in to the animal that lives within him. The only thing he got over vitor, is the claws. and the bones.
I hated when I found out that Sabretooth got Adamantium. The whole point is that he goes in there with nothing and takes Logan to the limit.
Really, I think Sabretooth would have been the better fighter, and just better all around if he didn't go so damned crazy and then stay there.
@ Gambler: I think it's safe to say that might have been Skrull Sabretooth.
I loved the old Sabretooth that would kick the crap out of Logan each year on his (logans) birthday each year just to show that he's better than him.
The whole point of Sabretooth was that he was bigger, stronger and better than Logan, and that he never could beat him, and also to show him what would happen if he gave in to the feral side.
One of my earliest childhood memories of comic books, even before I realized who the X-Men were, was Uncanny 213. Seeing Sabretooth stalk the X-Mansion on his lonesome and square off w/ this superhero ('cause he had a mask), then lick his freaking blood...
That's the prime Sabretooth / Wolverine dynamic IMO, Creed being bigger, stronger, and faster. It's the adamantium skeleton and claws the Weapon X program forced on Logan that ironically gives him the fighting chance he otherwise never had against that beast. Yes, the bone claws, but this was long before that development.
Victor is stronger, faster, more animalistic as he has given in to his inner beast. Logan is more skilled and has Ady laced bones. I think this fight should always be a brutal, bloody, violent close one. Sabes used to win a lot, lately Logan has been winning a lot. I don't care who wins because at the end I feel like they both come away from the fight beat, hurt, and angrier and more violent then when they first step into the fight. They bring out the worst in one another, their hate is so strong and old its as if no one ever wins, they fight they f*ck eachother up and they leave til the next time.
@god_spawn: For the first 20 or so years of their comic battles Sabertooth was beating Wolvie down on a pretty regular basis then some time around 2002 when Marvel decided to turn Wolverine from standard badass to unstoppable human buzzsaw.
