Sabretooth (Victor Creed) is a fiction character, a Marvel Comics supervillain created by writer Chris Claremont and artist/co-writer John Byrne. The character first appeared in Iron Fist #14 (August 1977). Originally portrayed as a non-powered serial killer, Sabretooth is later written as a mutant who possesses bestial superhuman abilities, most notably a rapid healing factor, razor-sharp fangs and claws, and superhuman senses. He is a vicious assassin responsible for numerous deaths both as a paid mercenary and for his personal pleasure.

The character Wolverine is depicted as his long-time enemy, although conflicting accounts have been given as to the origin of their feud. It is also known that he and Sabretooth were victims of the Cold War supersoldier program Weapon X, and that Sabretooth saw Wolverine as competition and tried to make his life miserable. While Wolverine is depicted as suppressing his more savage qualities, Sabretooth does the opposite and embraces them.

Sabretooth has appeared in several X-Men animated series and video game. Played by Tyler Mane, he was a henchman of Magneto in the first X-Men film and X-Men: The Official Game. Liev Schreiber plays him in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In May 2008, Wizard magazine ranked Sabretooth #193 of the 200 best comic book characters of all time. In 2009, Sabretooth was also ranked as IGN's 44th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.

The character first appeared in Iron Fist #14 (August 1977) and was created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. Sabretooth was initially conceived as a recurring antagonist for Iron Fist, whom he fought several times. He worked for a time with the Constrictor as a partner-in-crime, and both clashed repeatedly with Iron Fist and Power Man. Sabretooth then became one of Marvel Comics' numerous semi-recurring villains, occasionally clashing with various superheroes such as Spider-Man. The character rose to prominence when Chris Claremont introduced him as an enemy for the X-Men, during the Mutant Massacre crossover in 1986. Sabretooth became one of Marvel's major recurring supervillains and was depicted in particular as a recurring antagonist of Wolverine. Sabretooth has also been featured in limited series and one-shot comics including Sabretooth and Mystique and Sabretooth: In The Red Zone.
