Sabretooth? Named one of the top 50 baddies of all time, how could this oversight have occurred? What injustice as resulted in us not talking about the baddest of the bad, the meanest of the mean - Sabretooth?
Uh, maybe,just maybe, its because Toothy-boy is a direct rip-off copy cat, wannabe, always loser version of Wolverine, not to mention arch-nemesis of same. In some universes the two characters are brothers, one gone good and one gone bad.
And Sabretooth? Well, Sabretooth is nothing but a foil for Logan to explore that edge to it's finest razor sharpness. I have said many times now that the Bats foil, Joker, is so evil that he should be killed. Bats failure to kill him in my mind is the place where Bats crosses over the edge into evil. To allow evil to stand is to participate in evil. Much the same can be said for Logan's unwillingness to put his animalistic brother down once and for all. These two do not explore the line between good and evil - they obliterate.
