SuperBabe #8: The Dazzler

Once upon a time, the early 80s, you might have heard about Alison Blaire. First appearing in Uncanny X-Men #130 (1980), it was revealed that this musician and singer had the mutant ability to transform sound into light. Located by Professor Xavier, she would later adopt the name of Dazzler, throwing light shows and laser beams as part of her trade. Her uniform, however, made her a throwback: a sparkling, glitter-bound, one-piece disco suit, complete with roller skates and a high collar. She even wore disco-mirror earrings.

Dazzler never really had a strong following and she's had little to do. Her last few adventures involved a brief role in Marvel's Secret Invasion and a 1-Shot with Dazzler #1 (2010).

This Summer, though, it was revealed she'll be starring in a new Marvel Comics release called X-Treme X-Men, the first issue arriving on July 25th. Apparently the editors have been trying to bring her back, and in subsequent fashion, they've been upgrading her looks. Yes, that's right, the long hair is back, the blue makeup - gone for good (I hope.) There's more, too; Dazzler will take the leading role, so to speak, and head a group of alternate reality characters such as a young Nightcrawler and alternate version of Wolverine.

Coinciding with this seasons' events in the comic book world, The Top 10 Super Babes of Summer 2012 is a countdown from The Superheroes List, updating on Wednesdays, for simple entertainment as well as informative purposes. If you want to know how some of the female characters are evolving during the hot months, Read the List.
