    The Hand wants Sabretooth’s head! With no back-up to speak of, Sabretooth must face an excruciating fight, both physically and mentally.

    This story takes place after the events in Wolverine #64.

    Aldo Ferro, the Psi Borg, drops Sabretooth off at his mansion in Vancouver. Ferro warns Sabretooth that there are multiple hostiles waiting for him. Sabretooth tells Ferro to leave because he does not need his help.

    Sabretooth is surrounded by dozenes of Hand ninjas who want his head. Sabretooth slices up most of them but Birdy, his assistant blasts the rest away with a big gun.

    The two go into to the mansion and there is a wall of pictures of people he has assassinated. Sabretooth tells Birdy to change the picture that looks like Silver Fox because she is now the head of Hydra.

    Later Birdy uses her telepathic powers to calm Sabretooth of all his horribale past. (Flashback: As a young boy, Sabretooth was put in chains and wore a muzzle.)

    Later that night, Birdy calls in an assault team that capture Sabretooth for the Tribune. Sabretooth threatens to kill Birdy. (Flashback: Sabretooth's father pulls out his teeth.

    Elsewhere, Sabretooth is tied down to an operating table and had a bomb placed inside his cheast. Tribune wants him to kill Mystique within two days.
