Chris Claremont's X-Men

When people discuss titles and ideas they most often talk about the original creator.  The guy who founded it, started it.  However, when you look at things that span generations they often have more than just a founder, they have someone who steps in and makes that idea their own.

In the case of the X-Men they were created by Stan Lee but at the end of the 1960s they were floundering and on the verge of being canceled.  In walked Chris Claremont who took over, brought new ideas, new styles, and brought the X-Men from obscurity to become one of the most popular titles in comic book history.

It was Chris Claremont who ultimately evolved the character of Wolverine to being one of Marvel most popular characters.  He also wrote some of the most popular X-Men stories including Inferno, Days of Future Past, Dark Phoenix Saga, End Game, Men, Psi War, Wounded Wolf, Broodfall, A Green and Pleasant Land.  Hopefully you have heard of some of those, and hopefully a few of those are new.  You should check them all out.

A new documentary is coming out to explore the rise of Claremont's X-Men.  How he took them over, how he changed them and grew them and ultimately how his tenure on the title ended.
