    I can't believe you never listed "What the Devil".

    Slang that would have sounded dated ten years before the issue it appeared in was published.

    Examples:
    "Jean is wicked cool!"
    Rogue complaining that her tattered costume makes her look like a "ragbag."

    "What the flamin'" is probably my favorite. Logan can kill thousands without batting an eye yet he doesn't use foul language?

    Some missed.

    "Take a leaf from " " copybook."

    "Boise Moi!"

    "We have to find a way to win!"

    "Elf."

    "Begorra!"

    "Saints!" or "Saint's preserve us!"

    I miss them all. I like when characters have those sayings.

    Default The best of Psylocke

    "The dinos are very good. I'm better."/ "I was dead; got better."/ "You're good. I'm better." shortly followed by "'Better' maybe. Not the best!"

    "My teke is limited by my imagination and my imagination has no limit."

    Originally coined by Lifeguard: "It's like I smashed through a mountain."

    but adapted as a way to describe Betsy's "better" teke abilities:

    "Teke that can shatter mountains."

    You can't forget "Nigh-invulnerable".

    Would everyone's different variations on Kitty's name count? Kitten, Katchen, Katya, Punkin, that sort of thing?
