Who Is Dazzler in Marvel Comics? Rumoured To Be Played By Taylor Swift

Dazzler, also known as Alison Blaire, is a “mutant with the ability to convert sonic vibrations into various forms of light,” according to the Marvel Encyclopedia.

Don’t be fooled, though — it’s not just simple “Daylight” she can create. Dazzler has the ability to turn music into intense, potentially even “blinding,” light.

Essentially, Dazzler is a walking, singing disco ball (a “Mirrorball,” so to speak), if disco balls could exude enough reflective light to hypnotize a person potentially, emit “high impact photon blasts,” and create force fields.

Dazzler was created by Tom DeFalco, John Romita, Jr., and Roger Stern, making her first appearance in 1979’s Uncanny X-Men Vol 1, Issue 130. She sometimes will appear on roller skates, just adding to her disco “Style.”

Ali Blaire is a known music sensation in the Marvel Comics universe. “Long Story Short,” she used her mutant abilities to add extravagant light shows to her concerts, which helped propel her to fame.

She joined the X-Men after her mutant status was exposed since her singing career was impacted by people’s anti-mutant tendencies (anti-mutant behaviour and the experience of mutants in the Marvel universe are often used as metaphors for racism, homophobia, and other forms of prejudice).

Over time, she has regained a fanbase, changed her look several times (comparing her current aesthetic to the punk vibe of her 2014 appearance is akin to comparing Taylor Swift’s aesthetic during the “Lover” era to that of “Reputation”), and been on several different teams.

She also is the mother of Shatterstar, who made a brief appearance in Deadpool 2.
