Sabretooth also possesses healing abilities, although not as extensive as his Earth-616 counterpart, this Sabretooth was unable to fully recover when Wolverine cut his eye, scarring his face.

History:

(Mutant X#28 - BTS) - In an unrevealed event Sabretooth encountered and fought Wolverine resulting in him permanently injuring his right eye and scarring his face.

(Mutant X#28 (fb)) - During that same or another unrevealed event Sabretooth once again fought Wolverine and SHIELD agent Jean Grey who were romantically involved. Wolverine successfully saved Jean Grey from the feral mutant.

(Mutant X#3 (fb)) - Sabretooth, Wolverine and Wildchild became part of the Weapon X Project, developed during the Canadian/USA border conflicts. The three of them were elected to be Canada's elite troops, using the Super-Soldier Serum stolen from the United States.

(Mutant X#28 (fb) - BTS) - While being experimented on, the Weapon X Project noted all of their subjects had been declared dead for the outside world.

(Mutant X#3 (fb)) - The scientists eventually lost control of their subjects who escaped into the wilderness and the area was cordoned off while conventional forces dealt with their military difficulties with the United States. Bonded by their previous experience and rendered amnesiac Sabretooth, Wolverine and Wildchild formed the Pack, living as a group of wild animals in the Saskatchewan wilderness.

(Mutant X#3 (fb) - BTS) - Known for their wild and unpredictable nature, the Pack was left alone in the Saskatchewan wilderness.

(Mutant X#3) - The feral Sabretooth and the Pack came across the stranded mutant superhero group the Six who'd been shot out of the sky by the Canadian government for invading their airspace. The Pack went to investigate the crash site and, since being feral and unpredictable, took all of the Six except for their leader Havok captive. The Six's Brute even reverted to an even more feral version of himself and joined the Pack as they hunted Havok. 

    When the Pack eventually caught up with Havok, he fired a warning shot which accidentally uncovered the former Weapon X Project entrance. Sensing a part of their former selves, Sabretooth and the Pack stopped their chase and tried to break into the complex when they stumbled upon a wall which appeared to be pure Adamantium (see comments). With the little words Wolverine could still speak, he asked Havok to help them break into the complex after which Havok focused his powers into a powerful beam which penetrated the Adamantium wall, allowing the Pack to gain entrance to the abandoned Weapon X facility. 

    Upon examining the facility, the group was soon joined by the remaining members of the Six who decided to go and help Havok. Just then, a holographic playback was triggered of their time as part of Weapon X. Unable to deal with sudden influx of their forgotten memories, the Pack went berserk and even attacked Havok and the Six; the fight was halted by the arrival of the Guardian and Alpha Flight. Guardian declared that the Six was trespassing on Canadian government property, that they were in violation of the non-aggression treaty of Dublin, and that they would place the Pack under arrest.

(Mutant X#3 - BTS) - While the Pack were placed under arrest the Six were forced to leave the Weapon X facility and Canada within the hour lest they be executed as spies. Thus sadly the conflict wasn't resolved and the Pack left behind.

(Mutant X#12/2 - BTS) - When Alex Summers was rebuilding the Six team, he looked at those he'd met before like Sabretooth, nonetheless he wasn't recruited.

(Mutant X#20 - BTS) - While remembering what he'd experienced after ending up on Earth-1298, Alex Summers thought of Sabretooth, Wolverine and Wildchild whom he had met in Canada.

(Mutant X#29 (fb) - BTS) - With the Pack back in captivity, it became clear that the Canadian government was eager to pick up the Weapon X Project again and turn its superhuman citizens into Super Soldiers. As part of the process, the Professor created a method in which the candidates' brain would be scrambled so as to make them a perfect and loyal soldier. Unwilling to have his brain scrambled, Wolverine managed to break free, and Sabretooth was then ordered to bring him back in. The order had been given by James Hudson who was thought to have died at the hands of Wolverine and had his body-parts replaced by robotic ones.

(Mutant X#28) - Hunting Wolverine, Sabretooth made his way to the Pacific Northwest wilderness where he slaughtered a hunting group and their dogs, after which he continued his search and tracked Wolverine down to his former home. Wolverine had been drawn to his family home where, after encountering his family, he was flooded by painful memories; Wolverine snapped out of it when he smelled Sabretooth. After ordering his daughter to go back to bed, he quickly left the house. Not long after, Sabretooth bumped into Wolverine and revealed he was being payed royally to bring him back, and he also noted that he had a hankering for Wolverine's wife, Mariko, as well. However, during the brawl, a gasoline tank was hit which burned Sabretooth to the bone. Right after that, Jean Grey and the Six arrived to help Wolverine as Grey had dreamed her former lover needed their help. Unbeknownst to the heroes, Sabretooth had survived the attack and kidnapped Mariko and her children.

(Mutant X#29 - BTS) - Learning of Sabretooth's actions, James Hudson decided to warn Wolverine and traveled to the Six's base of operations. After he informed the heroes, they joined Hudson on a rescue mission. Hudson, however, had also sent Wildchild to locate and save Mariko and her children.

(Mutant X#29) - While keeping Mariko and her children prisoner, Sabretooth was confronted by his former teammate Wildchild. Unimpressed by the feral mutant, Sabretooth easily killed Wildchild. 

    Sometime later Wolverine, Havok and Grey arrived near the Canadian border. Wolverine decided to track Sabretooth on his own and went ahead, unaware Sabretooth was already close by, and Sabretooth attacked Havok and Grey in his absence. When the night had fallen, Wolverine managed to find his children, Mari and Brian, but was soon met by Havok, who warned that the whole thing had been a set-up for Sabretooth to capture Grey. 

    Determined to end the situation no matter what, Wolverine opposed Sabretooth who now held both Mariko and Grey. In a sadistic turn of events, Sabretooth ordered Wolverine to choose which one of the women he would murder. Wolverine stood by as Sabretooth suddenly caught fire, just as he dropped the women, it was revealed Havok was generating a low level plasma field to attack the mutant, Wolverine then jumped in and used his claws to decapitate Sabretooth, finally ending his threat.

Comments: Created by Howard Mackie, Tom Raney, Andrew Pepoy, and Walden Wong.

    If Havok blasted through the material, it was not pure Adamantium. MAYBE secondary Adamantium or just a really strong steel alloy.
