Silver Fox was a mutant whose superhuman powers were never revealed. She received age suppression treatments from the Weapon X Program, causing her to age slowly, if at all, over a period of decades. She also allegedly possessed a healing factor distilled from Wolverine’s, although it was apparently insufficient to save her from the fatal injuries inflicted upon her by Sabretooth.

Silver Fox was an experienced markswoman and a highly trained hand-to-hand combatant. Her rapid rise through the ranks of Hydra indicated strong leadership skills.

Other Info
Silver Fox was a young member of the Blackfoot Indian tribe who, in the early 1910s, fell in love with a young mutant named Logan and shared a cabin with him in a remote community in the Canadian Rockies. Another resident of their community (the mutant called Sabretooth), one evening, attacked Silver Fox and left her for dead. Enraged, Logan fought Sabretooth in a savage battle, but was defeated and left town, unaware that Silver Fox had actually survived.

Decades later, Silver Fox became an operative of the U.S. Government’s Weapon X Program, joining the field unit known as Team X where she was reunited with both Logan (now known as Wolverine), and Sabretooth. However, since the members of Team X were all subject to memory alterations, it is unclear how much of their past involvement the three remembered at this point.) (Click on the program and team above to learn more about them.)

As a result of an extreme reaction to her memory implants, Silver Fox betrayed Wolverine and Sabretooth on a mission in Cuba in 1963. Afterward, Silver Fox became a terrorist. She again clashed with her former teammates on another mission in Ontario.

Eventually, she became an agent of the international terrorist group known as Hydra. (Click on the highlighted group to learn more about them.)

Years later, Silver Fox monitored Wolverine’s quest for answers about the Weapon X Program, and she killed the Weapon X scientist called the Professor to prevent his interference. Silver Fox also allied with Matsu’o Tsurayaba (the leader of the ninja clan the Hand), and hired the Japanese assassin Reiko to poison Wolverine’s beloved, Mariko Yashida.

One day, a former Team X member,
Mastodon, rapidly aged and died. Silver Fox gathered Wolverine and the other remaining Team X alumni to seek answers to why this happened. Their search led them to Aldo Ferro (the same man who had crafted Team X’s memory implants decades ago). Unfortunately, in a following confrontation, Silver Fox was slain by Sabretooth. And Wolverine buried her near the cabin where they had found happiness so long ago. (To learn about Mastodon, just click on his name above.)

Silver Fox in
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a very different person than the one in the comics. Her powers are completely different; and in the movie, her and Emma Frost are sisters (which is completely made up).


  1. I like the new header too =)

    And I think it's interesting how much artistic license was taken for her character - I would think that Marvel would have a problem with it, but apparently not...

  2. So she kinds has a healing factor and ages slowly, I did she really have powers to begin with or did she acquire them via Weapon X experiments. Marvel didn't have any more info I could find.

  3. Steve,
    As far as my research can tell, Silver Fox did not have any super powers until she joined Weapon X. It was there (along with most people in the Weapon X program) she gained a healing factor which included the age suppressant.

  4. Yeah, I like the new banner too, Cor. You've really put a lot of work into this blog. Good job, bro. :)
