* CreatorBacklash: Not so much regarding his works, but Claremont has gone on the record that he feels that both Creator/Disney =/= Creator/MarvelComics ''AND'' Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox has caused the ComicBook/XMen to be sidelined since the former doesn't have the film rights to the franchise and the latter does. He also argues that if Disney had bought Marvel when the latter had the film rights to all their characters, the X-Men would be the predominant comic of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse.[[note]]This is before Marvel announced ''ResurrXion'', which is planned to be a relaunch of the X-Men in response to the response about the sidelining.[[/note]]

Claremont was one of the first superhero writers to deliberately set out to create strong female protagonists. During his original time at Marvel, he created or strongly influenced many of the female characters that remain centerpieces of the line today, including Storm, Jean Grey, Rogue, Misty Knight, Colleen Wing, Kitty Pryde, [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]], Jessica Drew, and the Empress Lilandra. This makes him one of the single most influential writers in comic-book history (and through ''X-Men'', to ''all of pop culture''), although modern audiences mostly know him as "that guy with the [[FetishFuel strong mind-control, S&M gear, and dominatrix fetish]] who used to write ''X-Men''."

* Unfortunately, things that ''also'' appeal to Claremont include mind control (and characters heroically overcoming it), body horror, characters being somehow "corrupted" into evil or sensual versions of themselves, villains who pursue the romantic attentions of a heroine, and flimsy excuses for female characters ending up half-naked. He's also been unable to shake a rumor, started in the mid-2000s by an [[HateDom angry former fan]], that he's actually very much [[PerverseSexualLust in love with Storm]].

* AuthorAppeal: Even his fans admit he had a thing for [[ActionGirl Strong Womenfolk]]. How much of one remains a matter of dispute/innuendo.
** There's also the matter of whether or not [[PerverseSexualLust he's really in love with]] ComicBook/{{Storm}}.
** Claremont's mother was a British World War II veteran and a bona fide badass; he's also heavily influenced by Creator/RobertAHeinlein. When he looked at mainstream American comic books in the mid-seventies when he started, he saw almost no female characters he liked, and set out to redress the problem. As such, he's arguably one of the most influential superhero writers of all time. Unfortunately, he's pretty much recycling cliches and writing his own fetishes at this point.

** In his heyday, Claremont was the continuity master, with events in other books always having an impact on whatever it was he was writing. Since he started writing for Marvel again, though, he's never been shy about retconning, rewriting, or undoing several things that happened right after he left the X-books in 1991. He's also stepped quite neatly into the current status quo at the Jean Grey Academy as of ''Nightcrawler''.

* CreatorCameo: Claremont, or a barely-concealed version thereof, shows up in his comics every once in a while, and something bad usually happens to him about ten seconds later. Kitty Pryde once stole his car and left him stranded in the middle of Scotland.
** Kitty Pryde is also a big fan of Creator/EmmaBull's band Cats Laughing.
* CrossOver: It's not quite so consistent as for there to be a "Claremont Universe," but he enjoys throwing in a lot of relatively subtle cameos or shout-outs in his later work. The X-Men supporting character Lila Cheney is apparently a popular rock musician in the ''Grounded!'' universe, and the Sovereign Seven operated out of a small restaurant that was inexplicably popular with various members of the X-Men.

* GodwinsLaw / ThoseWackyNazis: For whatever reasons, Claremont appears fascinated with the Nazis. Nearly ''every'' human X-Men villain he wrote is compared to Nazis at some point by sympathetic characters, and not infrequently, they are also ''objectively'' either actual Nazi bitter-enders or government conspiracies that like PuttingOnTheReich. This isn't limited to his X-Men writing, either; his work on ''Captain America'' and other titles also shoe-horned in numerous references to Nazis and the Jewish holocaust. (Cap, of course, always had some Nazi villains, but rarely to the extent Claremont did it.)
