Chris Claremont, 1982.
“Rarely will you find among fans, comic or SF, a magnificent physical specimen of humanity,” observed Chris Claremont. “Because if you’re that good mentally or physically, you don’t need the fantasy—the reality’s good enough. It’s people who need the fantasy who indulge in it, and people who need the fantasy are usually lacking something. They’re usually a bit too smart, or they’re not Raquel Welch or Dolly Parton—any of the clone varieties of cuties you see on TV.”
