CB: When thinking about the new X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, most comic book fans can only think of one person – the co-writer of the 1981 story arc, Chris Claremont. Claremont was pivotal in the creation of the modern day X-Men. From the Dark Phoenix Saga and the initial death of Jean Grey to co-creating many major X-characters like Shadowcat, Emma Frost, Siryn, Sabretooth, Rogue, Psylocke, and even Gambit, it’s safe to say that the world of the Uncanny X-Men would be completely different had it not been for Chris Claremont. So what does Claremont get for his brilliant work? Well, not much aside from a cameo in X-Men: The Last Stand, where he is credited as “Lawnmower man”.
