In 1969, a young "gofer" in the Marvel Comics office named Chris Claremont pitched a storyline wherein the Sentinels would attempt to destroy the sun. Series writer Roy Thomas liked the concept, and together with artist Neal Adams, executed the idea in the pages of UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #59.

This weekend, celebrate the 50th anniversary of what Claremont himself has described as his "benchmark" year at Marvel Comics with two free comics—UNCANNY X-MEN #141-142, better known as "Days of Future Past"!

Five years after his revelatory experience alongside Thomas and Adams, Claremont would begin his own tenure writing Marvel's mighty mutants with UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #94. And then he went down in history with mutantkind.
