Regarding Ororo, please for the love of all that's holy don't go down the mohawk 'punk' path.

My lack of God! What would make you think I’d even consider such a thing?!?

(An example there of why I’ve sometimes said Chris didn’t really write the X-Men for as long as people think. So many radical changes to characters, concepts, even the inherent identity of the series. He must have written a dozen different books under that single title.)

In my opinion, Chris Claremont pretty much from the beginning of his tenure on the comicbook wanted to transform the series into something other than it had been. It only took him a few issues to introduce the Shi'ar. And once he put the X-Men into outer space (where I do not think they ever belonged), Mr. Claremont clearly wanted to keep going there. It's obvious that he famously (and successfully!) went right back for a long space-saga pretty soon after JB left.

As I have noted, Chris’ first “solo” story—not from Len’s plots—was about a demon!

Artistically, I’ve described myself as a sponge. I absorb whatever I see. Chris is much the same as a writer.
