Drawing Crazy Patterns - CLAREMONTISM: The Focused Totality of Psylocke's Telepathic Powers!

In this feature, I spotlight five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics).

Today we examine five instances where Psylocke described her psychic knife as the "focused totality of my telepathic powers."

Enjoy!

After a few near-misses (with phrases similar but not exactly the same), the phrase made its debut in Uncanny X-Men #271...

It next popped up in #276...

Then again in #277 (note that both issues were Skrulls posing as Psylocke, but come on, it totally still counts!)...

The final use during Claremont's first X-Men run occurred in X-Men #1...

The first person to use it other than Claremont was his longtime creative partner, Alan Davis, who broke the phrase out in Excalibur #56...
