Characters Appearing: Sabretooth, Werewolf By Night
Marvel Comics Presents #98 (Werewolf By Night)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #98 (Werewolf By Night story only)
This story is illustrated by S. Clarke Hawbaker and Mark McKenna, the regular Nomad art team, and boy, if Jack Monroe ever cut his hair, i might not be able to tell the two Jacks apart.
Jack goes to a strip club and notices Sabretooth.
Jack's narration talks about Sabretooth like they're of the same kind.
Jack confronts Sabretooth.
They fight for a bit...
...but the Werewolf is driven off by hunters that assume that Sabretooth, since he's more human looking, is the good guy. Jack says that the hunters' bullets can't actually kill him, but he says that they do hurt. Jack says the humans and Sabretooth deserve each other, so he just leaves the area.
I guess i bring baggage from other werewolf stories with me whenever i read a werewolf story in the Marvel universe. Sabretooth just doesn't seem like a good challenge for Werewolf By Night, because the Werewolf can only be killed by silver, so Sabretooth can't win the fight. It's not just a question of who's the more ferocious fighter or more of a monster. Werewolf By Night is supernatural. Granted, the point of this story isn't Whoodwin, and it is demonstrated that Jack can at least be hurt by normal means, if not killed.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Considering Sabretooth gets beaten up everytime he fights someone other than Wolverine, you are probably right.
