Chris Claremont (born 1950) is a comic book writer, most famous for his work as the writer of Comicbook/XMen from 1975 to 1991, and a few shorter runs later. During his first tenure on the series, ''Uncanny X-Men'' developed from one of the least popular Marvel comics to one of its flagship titles, and spawned many spin-offs (such as ''ComicBook/NewMutants'', ''Comicbook/XFactor'' and ''Comicbook/{{Excalibur}}''). His original run on ''Uncanny X-Men'' is one of the longest tenures by a single writer on any superhero comic, if not ''the'' longest. In fact, it wasn't until his tenure that the X-Men became the major hit they've been ever since.

His original 17-year run on ''Uncanny X-Men'' is one of the longest tenures by a single writer on any Big Two superhero comic, if not ''the'' longest. In fact, longest, and it wasn't until his tenure was him (along with people like Dave Cockrum and Creator/JohnByrne) that turned them into the X-Men became the major hit they've been ever since. pop-cultural juggernaut they remain to this day.

** Note that he was originally on ''X-Men'' for 15 years in a row! The list of dangling plot threads from then would require its own wiki.

** Note that he was originally on ''X-Men'' for 15 years in a row! The list of dangling plot threads from then would require its own wiki. The problem there is that he had a ''really long'' story in mind, one that it was probably unrealistic for him to expect to have time for.

** Claremont spent most of his original ''X-Men'' run with Jim Shooter as the editor in chief, and the two of them had frequent clashes over the directions in which Claremont wanted to take the story. Many abandoned subplots had to be dropped suddenly because Shooter vetoed them, such as Mystique and Destiny's relationship. Continuing this fine pattern of ExecutiveMeddling, Claremont clashed so badly with his editor Bob Harras that he left the ''X-Men'' franchise entirely in the early nineties, which is one of the early benchmarks that marks the start of superhero comics' DarkAge.

** When Claremont wrote ''Fantastic Four'' for a while in the '80s, they spent a ''lot'' of time having to deal with villains Claremont had introduced in ''Excalibur''.

After departing from Marvel in 1991, owing mostly to repeated clashes with the editorial department at the time, Claremont worked on several other projects. This includes a series of original novels (''First Flight'', ''Grounded!''), contributions to Creator/GeorgeRRMartin's ''Literature/WildCards'' series, and co-writing ''Shadow Moon'', a novel set in the ''{{Film/Willow}}'' universe, with Creator/GeorgeLucas. He also wrote an original series for DC called ''Sovereign 7'' that was eventually canceled.
