    Let's keep posting so as to shunt that Gambit gore off to previous-page status.

    The panels need to say "It's my turn." We want pure CLAREMONTIANISM.
    Actually, not really.

    The link you provided doens't even doesn't have "My turn" explicitly stated in each example. It's more the spirit of the statement than the actual statement. So the scans aren't "fail."

    Or you could have simply been clearer in what you were asking for in the first place.

    I know Psylocke has said this before I'll try to track it down when I get home.

    lol oh give it up people. The opening scan has a huge picture with my turn in bold and colour font. It's obvious what the intended purpose was.

    So it doesn't matter if the situation has nothing to do with the subject takinga huge beating/defeat and coming out immediately reenergized and more ready to fight? All that matters is the "my turn" phrase? Even the tropes page includes Oddjob from Bond.
