One LONG dangling thread that was never addressed during the original Byrne-Claremont run:

Will we ever find out what that secret mission that Japanese boat was doing in the Straits of Drake (that saved the X-Men and brought them to Japan)?
Or that thread long-forgotten?
Was that idea yours or Chris' in the first place?
I had to look this up to know what you were talking about. Definitely another case of Chris scripting more than was in the art. Maybe he had some idea percolating in the back of his brain, maybe not. But if we count this--and that would be a stretch--it might well stand as the very oldest of Claremont's Unresolved Subplots™.
(That scene also gives us Storm using her powers to create an "area of relative calm"--something not seen in the art. ARGH!!)
Sometimes, a boat is just a boat?
