Wo(man) of the Moment….

I know I usually do a weekly (or monthly) “Man of the Moment” but I decided for this week to feature a woman. So…..

Dazzler you are this week’s Woman of the Moment!

Her real name is Alison Blair she is a mutant and is part of the X-Men! Her abilities include turning sound vibrations in to energy and light beams. She first got really into disco music but as the decades progress so did her musical taste.

The idea of  the Dazzler character came from Casablanca Records because of the collaboration of  the band KISS and their comic book tie ins was so successful they wanted a repeat. So the agreement was that Marvel Comics we create a singer female superhero and Casablanca Records would make a singer base off of that.

However there was disagreements between the Marvel team who were responsible in creating Dazzler: John Romita Jr. and Tom DeFalco and Filmworks (who wanted to make a movie based on the comic) on who Dazzler should be based off of. Marvel wanted Drazzler to resemble singer and model Grace Jones.

However Filmworks wanted to showcase Bo Derek and they were very vocal on changing Dazzler’s physical features to reflect more to Bo Dereks’. They couldn’t really agree so the movie was shelved and never filmed.

Despite all of this I think she is one of my new favorite X-men mutant and that is why she deserves to be “WOMAN OF THE WEEK!!!”
