Marvel Comics Teases Sabretooth’s Secret Deal
In a pair of Tweets sent on Thursday, December 30th, 2021, the official Twitter account for Marvel Entertainment teased Sabretooth #1 by a creative team that includes writer Victor LaVille and artist Leonard Kirk, a new comic featuring the eponymous mutant’s fate at the hands of Krakoa’s newly-founded justice system!
When Krakoa was founded, Sabretooth went into the Pit, sentenced to an eternity of torment. Sounds like hell…but maybe that's where he feels most at home. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/9KWg4DzW8h

When Krakoa was founded, Sabretooth was sentenced to eternity in the Pit! You can read all about it for yourself in House of X (2019) #3 by Jonathan Hickman, Pepe Larraz, Marte Garcia, and Clayton Cowles, with design by Tom Muller and a main cover by Larraz and Garcia.
This horrible fate was meant to be tantamount to eternal torture. However, the Tweets sent by Marvel earlier today suggest that we may not fully appreciate the situation inside the Pit, or the way that Sabretooth relates to it… and furthermore, it seems as though the exiled mutant may have made a “secret deal” that could change everything.
Sabretooth isn’t the only mutant who has been sentenced to the Pit. Other mutant detainees include Toad, Curse, and Nature Girl.
This won’t be the only time you see Sabretooth in 2022, Marvel Blog True Believers. As you may recall from our coverage of Midnight Suns, the upcoming Marvel video game that is now scheduled for release in the second half of 2022, you’ll get to participate in a showdown against the powerful mutant – you can see a sneak preview of that battle right here.
