...ten than not he goes off on his own. He has gotten into scraps with people reputedly stronger and bigger than him (Hulk, Wedigo, Sabertooth, etc) and gave them a good deal of grief. This says a lot about his attitude also. I think the fact he looks like a Lynx a bit though ties him to Sabertooth a bit since some have stated that the two might be related ( at least in the cinema verse they are brothers) or have grown up together. I do think that your main point about the animal and the character both being Canadian is spot on though (whoops that was more of an English saying than a Canadian one).
