I think Claremont's actually pretty underrated. Much like the Lee/Kirby FF's or the Lee/Ditko/Romita Spider Mans, Claremont's run of X-Men is sort of the only one that really matters, in that everything that came afterwards was derivative of those ideas and character relationships he developed.

Also, his own weird tics and obsessions made him a perfect bronze age successor to Stan Lee's attempts at fusing romantic drama and costumed action.

In the X-Men's 4th annual, Wolverine gives Nightcrawler a giant framed headshot of himself in costume.

Anyway, I'm up to the New Mutants now in my readthrough of X-Men from the beginning. I actually read (most of?) Claremont's New Mutants when I was young, (never read his X-Men before) and I'm looking forward to revisiting it. Really enjoyed the Magik miniseries.

But really, who gives someone a polka-dot shirt with a striped tie for their birthday?
I bet it was Cyclops.

Say what you will, but how many people have seen Wolvie deliver a perfect DC Comics-style wholesome smile, let alone have a framed version of it?

Damn, your cleverly hidden white text beat me to the answer.

They actually got Actual Jim Davis to contribute some content to the guest art featured in an unspecified (probably imminent) issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

Karma's fat, therefore evil and much larger than her drumstick than Wolverine is, which further compounds her villainy.
