Self-mutilation was moreover key to both get away: in arrange for Sabretooth to elude his father's detainment, the youthful mutant chewed off one of his hands. As Sabretooth puts it, "Torment may be a blessing," but it's the primary dialect he ever learned. This moreover serves as a few knowledge into Victor's bent intellect: all the wretchedness he's caused Wolverine over the a long time, all the birthday's he's followed his pint-sized match down to whip him, it's been Sabretooth's wiped out way of allowing that blessing to Logan. He's not slaughtering Logan, he's attempting to educate him how to be as great of a survivor as he is.
