I'm studying english using American comic.


In above situation, this weird man says You're mine now!!!
I don't understand this meaning.
It's similar to Gotcha?

When something is yours, or you say that it is mine, it means that you possess it or own it; it belongs to you and you therefore have control over it.

gotcha is a phonetic spelling of how many people pronounce "got you", which means "I have you", and have is a synonym of "possess" or "hold". Gotcha! is an exclamation which is used to mean "I have managed to catch (or to trap) you!"

Since you can have something that does not belong to you, gotcha and you're mine are not perfectly synonymous. The former means "I have you" and the latter means "I own you".
