Brief Bio: An orphan raised by nuns, Felicia achieved a bit of fame as a pop singer after leaving the orphanage. But her mettle was truly tested when the evil Pyron attempted to destroy the world. Banding together with other Darkstalkers, the blue-haired catwoman helped stop the tyrant's domination. With the world saved, Felicia stepped back from the spotlight and became a nun, founding her own orphanage known as the "Felicity House."

Fighter Name: Sabretooth
Real Name: Victor Creed
Universe: Marvel, X-Men
First Appearance: IRON FIST #14
Marvel/Capcom Game Appearances: "X-Men vs. Street Fighter," "Marvel vs. Capcom 2"
Citizenship: Multiple Countries
Brief Bio: Maniacal, psychotic, unrepentant and brutal, these are all words that describe Victor Creed, the man also known as Sabretooth. If Wolverine can be used as a baseline for ferocity, then Victor Creed is simply off the charts—in a very bad way. While Logan has learned to rein in his animal side, Sabretooth relishes the release of his inner beast. Creed has used his feral and ferocious mutant powers to work for the government and as a mercenary, but his favorite pastime, undoubtedly, is hunting Wolverine. Blood and fur fly whenever the two cross claws and since they both possess a healing factor, you can rest assured they'll keep fighting until the cows come home. You're not going to find many mutants more violent than Sabretooth and why would you want to anyway?
Powers: Sabretooth is a lot like his arch-rival Wolverine in the powers department. He has an accelerated factor, enhanced senses, super strength, endurance, agility and reflexes. He also has an unbreakable skeleton thanks to an adamantium infusion and unbreakable, razor-sharp claws.
Special Moves: Berserker Claw, Wild Fang, Birdie Call, Hyper Berserker Claw, Berserker Claw X, Hyper Birdie Call
Quote: "You cannot stop the beast inside of me!"
