Sabretooth's stint as a hero may not be over just yet, and we will see more of heroic Creed in Jonathan Hickman's X-Men
- Greg Pak's Weapon X (2017) left him in a lobotomized state, and whether he was still inverted or finally reverted was ambiguous. Marduk Kurios thought he was mentally broken at first, but theorizes he may have been fixed instead. Not wanting to claim Victor while he was mentally deficient, Marduk released him from Hell to heal & earn his way back. Mathew Rosenberg was the next writer to use him in his Uncanny X-Men (2018) tie-in for War of the Realms. There, Sabretooth is unquestionably evil again. But Rosenberg's Uncanny X-Men, along with the other current X-run has been stated by Hickman, and assistant editor, Chris Robinson, to be very lax on editorial mandate. The former saying the only mandate was for writers to go nuts & swing away. That being the case, Rosenberg's evil Creed may be filler that has no bearing on Hickman's future plans & use of him. The images from Hickman's run show Creed sporting his Weapon X-Force◊ design, compared to Rosenberg's long-haired, street-clothed, Creed. He appears to be working with Magneto, who is sporting a trademark '''X''' costume & whom he worked for during Cullen Bunn's Uncanny X-Men (2015).
- JOSSED: With House & Powers of X completed, it's made clear Sabretooth is a full blown villain again, and not only that, but he's the only one bad enough to be exiled from Krakoa.
Sabretooth escapes the Depths of Krakoa and may have more kids in the cards.
- Powers of X #6 shows mutants as an endangered species living in a preserve run by the dominant life forms of Earth, Homo Novissima. We see a feral mutant attack the Librarian as he enters the reserve and he is very similar to Sabretooth in build, height, claws, pouncing, blonde hair, and having the arm spikes of Jim Lee Sabretooth.◊ Given Hickman's penchant for long-term planning and set-ups, this may be a clear Chekhov's Gun. If this is a child or descendant of Creed 1,000 years in the future, we know he'll escape Krakoa's exile and possibly make good on Kurt's "Make More Mutants" rule which would double as Foregone Conclusion as we have to see how Creed escapes, and who is the mother of the child(ren) he'll have.
Mystique will release Sabretooth from the depths of Krakoa.
- She was made a member of the council due to being identified as a problem, along with Apocalypse, Sinister, and Exodus. She took some persuading and joined on the grounds she get Destiny back. As Moira, Charles, and Magneto talk, they agree that Precogs shouldn't be allowed on Krakoa. When Mystique hears she joined their cause and died on one mission already while they had no intention whatsoever to bring Destiny back, she will not be happy. In Destiny's absence, her most frequent relationship is with Sabretooth, so with Destiny still being kept from her, she'll likely go get Sabretooth back. To have a consistent partner when she needs one, and to cause some trouble on Krakoa for their betrayal of her.
