Marvel Coimcs’ Wolverine: Sabretooth War ten-part event lived up to the hype. Writers Benjamin Percy and Victor LaValle promised two things. First, they said this would be one of Wolverine’s bloodiest battles and they were right. Throughout this series, Logan, Sabretooth, Victor’s variants, and Laura Kinney take chunks out of each other with their claws. Second, this was going to be Wolverine and Victor’s last fight. That appears to be true.

Wolverine was armed with an adamantium armor (created by Forge) and the Muramasa Blade. The latter is made from a metal that stops healing factors. However, we’ve seen this story before. Wolverine has threatened to kill Sabretooth and stopped short. After killing Daken, kidnapping Laura, and threatening Krakoa, Logan had enough.

X-Force and Sabretooth’s former Exiles step in to kill Victor, but Logan tells them to stand down. He tells them it’s his fight to finish. Before the battle, Logan tells Victor a secret. The Forge’s armor wasn’t only to protect Logan. Forge made the armor to reignite Logan’s mutant gene and protect Wolverine in case he lost it (hinted back in X-Force No. 25).

Their battle begins and, as you’d expect, Wolverine and Sabretooth are cutting each other up. Unfortunately for Sabretooth, his wounds from the Muramasa Blade aren’t healing. When the fight ends, Wolverine doesn’t just kill Sabretooth. He cuts him to pieces with the Muramasa Blade.

Comic book fans can assume that Sabretooth will return. He's one of Wolveirne's deadliest enemies. Despite the Muramasa Blade being a weapon to stop healing factors, there are other ways to bring him back. Victor Creed could return with the help of a resurrected Weapon X, Mr. Sinister, Apocalypse, or any capable scientist with a need for Sabretooth.

Let’s not forget that there were Sabretooth variants. Some of them could still be alive. That means the Victor Creed we know could be dead, but another could return. Regardless, we should expect his return. Stay tuned to Bam Smack Pow to find out how that happens. 

Will Sabretooth come back from the dead? Do you think he should? Let us know on the Bam Smack Pow Instagram and Twitter.
