Lykos survived and journeyed to the Savage Land where he once again fought the X-Men as Sauron. For a time, as Lykos, he proved an ally to both the X-Men and Ka-Zar. Ultimately reverting to his Sauron form, he usurped the leadership of the Savage Land Mutates and opposed Ka-Zar, Spider-Man, and the X-Men. Defeated, he reverted to human form again and was reunited with Tanya. Later, he and Tanya were captured by the Toad who was seeking recruits for a new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Forced to absorb Tanya’s energy (possibly fatally), Lykos was transformed into Sauron again and joined the Brotherhood in opposing first X-Force and then X-Factor. After the Brotherhood disbanded, Sauron returned to the Savage Land and, with the Mutates, opposed various members of the X-Men. Capturing Cyclops and Havok, Sauron drained their energies which caused him to mutate further. Jean Grey engaged Sauron telepathically, allowing Lykos’ personality to force his alter ego’s psyche in making a suicide leap into the abyss of his own mind, thus reducing Sauron’s physical form to a pure, animal-like state.S.H.I.E.L.D. faction illegally stockpiling Vibranium. Opposed by Wolverine and a new Avengers team, Lykos was stabbed by Wolverine before transforming into Sauron. The fight was interrupted by S.H.I.E.L.D. troopers led by the Black Widow (Belova), who shot Sauron in the head. The stress of his wounds caused Sauron’s powers to mutate further, but he was still defeated and remanded into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. They in turn handed Sauron back to Weapon X.
