    Stan Lee and Jack Kirby might have created the X-men,
    but it was Chris Claremont who made them awesome.

    He'll never get the respect and credit he deserves for his work.
    His run on X-men is without equal.

    For all his contributions, we should all take a moment to give thanks to the man
    who helped make X-men something that inspires so much passion
    and endless debate on message boards.

    Thank you for help me to understand some important things in life. Thank you for make me thrill and laugh and cry.

    Thank you for so many X-Men from so many different countries and cultures and beliefs. Thank you for so many female characters (not all of them claremazons!) and for passing the Bechdel Test more than enough.

    Thank you for developing Kurt, Ororo, Logan, Piotr, Sean, Scott and Jean so well as if they were your own creations.

    Thank you for creating such splendid girls as Kitty, Rogue and Rachel.

    Thank you the Morlocks and the New Mutants.

    Thank you for putting glasses on Kitty, receding hairline on Forge and 'some new wrinkles in Kurt's eyes'. Thank you for allowing Shan to earn a living. Thank you for trying to establish Raven as Kurt's biological father and Irene as Kurt's biological mother (this is canon for many fans as me).

    Thank you for bringing my dearest pure-hearted-terrorist Longshot to X-Men at the very instant of our favorite fuzzy elf's fateful loss (and a little slap on your wrists for all the stories Ann couldn't then write for him). Thank you for making a magnificent villain out from Mojo, for understanding Rita and Spiral, for the X-Babies and all the metaliterature.

    Thank you for the supplements of Classic X-Men. Thank you for the perfect 'The Big Dare', the extremely beautiful 'The Gift' and the autobiographical 'Hope'.

    Thank you for creating Captain Britain, picking later Moore and Delano's awesome harvest and writing the absolutely wonderful Excalibur.

    Thank you for allowing your characters to grow by themselves. Thank you for the unsettling Douglock thing, for Illyana's sad fate, for Piotr's choice during Asgardian Wars and for 'Life-Death' I & II.

    Thank you for your esteem towards human characters, as oustanding as supers: Stevie, Tom, Sharon, Dai, Harry, the Stuart Bros., Courtney...

    Thank you, Chris, for so many years of joy. We will never be able to pay you back.

Your living legacy and continued honesty, fight against sexism, racism, bland story tellingand poor characterization for so many characterizations will endure and continue to inspire more writers. Thanks and happy birthday. Also thanks for giving Storm your birthday.

    Thank you for the greatest team of young super heroes ever, The New Mutants! Thank you for all your strong female characters! But above all, thank you for having the courage and genius to give Magneto his identity, history, and Holocaust backstory 35 years ago! Magneto remains the greatest antagonist/anti-hero/villain/sometime hero in all of comics--all due to your creative brilliance!

    And yes, I second the plea to the new EinC Cebulski--give Chris Claremont some comics to write!

His Mum delivered planes for the RAF in WWII, for example. And he once fought an imaginary duel, with imaginary swords, and real sound effects, for my imaginary honour, in the lounge of The Adelphi in Liverpool. He got shot with an imaginary gun by Peter Morwood (a la the end of Wizards). Fun times.
