((OOC: Theories on Movie Versions of Sabretooth...))  
It goes without saying that Liev Schreiber's version of Victor Creed is pretty damn different from Tyler Mane's portrayal of the same character. Question is, why? Well, all OOC meta-discussion aside, this is my own personal take on the matter, and the explanation I'm going with for this RP version of Victor Creed.

The version of Sabretooth played by Tyler Mane in 'X-1' isn't the same character as Liev Schreiber's Victor Creed. He's a clone created by William Stryker from Victor's DNA, amalgamated with some DNA taken from another X-Men comic character, Sasquatch.

And if you want some proof for the theory, just take a look at these pictures...

Interesting theory. Liev's version is obviously preferred.

Well, I did always have a liking for Sabretooth in the comics - what can I say, I have a weakness for ferals? - but yes, I'll admit Liev's Voice swings my vote on this one!

Wild Child would be my fave. I'd play him if I could freaking decide on an actor's face. And if there weren't so many other ferals already in the game.

Ah yes, Wild Child! :D

...would now be a bad time to point out that I just made an RP LiveJournal for the comic-verse Earth 295 version of Victor...?

How many versions of Victor are there now?
Victor Creed: Future!Verse - Chastisedwatch_the_nails on March 17th, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
In Marvel canon? Three main ones, as far as I know (including movie-verse Victor.) I roleplay three main different versions of movie-verse Victor, and one version of 'Earth 295' Victor (from 'Age of Apocalypse' and 'Exiles' if that helps!)

I adored Liev's Victor. He brought depth to the character, more than just an unthinking beastly animal, like Tyler Mane's Sabretooth was.

I also like the theory! Not heard it before, but it could be plausible, considering that Sabretooth from X1 didn't seem to be teasing Logan, or even hinting at their shared past at all.

'Look what the cat dragged in...'

Victor Creed: Smiley Iconwatch_the_nails on April 16th, 2010 09:50 pm (UTC)
Agreed! That's why I like him so much. Sarcastic, snarky, sexy and dangerous? Yes please!

It's not an official theory, by any means, but it's the one I use to explain how my RP version of Victor fits into the wider movie-verse.

Just so you know this is my Roleplay journal for Victor, my real-life one is jackdante.
