    Before Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears topped the pop charts worldwide, there was Alison Blaire - X-Men's queen of pop. The popstar eXtraordinaire unfortunately only had a cameo in the flopped X-Men movie, Dark PhoeniX. Do you want Dazzler to Storm the MCU charts? Which genre should her debut album be?

    Who will be the MCU Dazzler?

    Get the Wanda Vision/ Frozen songwriters to write the musical numbers too. Since it's now under Disney, they have a lot of experience with musical films so this should do well. But if not a movie then it definitely needs to be a Disney+ TV series.

    Good point, I didn’t think of the Disney link but that should make it easier for them to make it a quality production with all their experience in that area.

    I would hope that 2 other things come out of a MCU Dazzler project:

    1. A Dazzler soundtrack with chart topping songs in their own right
    2. A Dazzler stage musical using all these songs and additional ones.

    I hope they have many allusions to the Roller Disco era.

    In fact, Kylie Minogue's "Disco" album from 2020 is full of fantastic retro disco-era songs but with a modern spin. Would be even worth getting her to write some of the material or using her as an inspiration. This music video of hers looks so Dazzler-ish with all the lights and strobes:

    I do believe in magic @Dark Raven

    I'd cast Lily James.

    Lily would be great, although there might be higher profile CBM roles for her. She’s already been good in a musical too.

    I think 1 and 2 would be ideal. I’d love to see a musical.

    I for one don't want a Marvel musical movie.

    What I want to see is Dazzler joined the X-Men and become a Breakthrough character or be famous like Black Widow.

    Would be nice if they went back to the original conception of the character before her official comics debut and made her black in the MCU:

    From Grace Jones to Bo Derek: 40 Years of Marvel's Dazzler
    Funny enough, she also slightly inspired the look of Rogue when she first appeared, although the illustrator, Michael Golden, didn’t know what she looked like, so he just guessed at it, and we got what we got.

    To think, back in the 80s, we almost could’ve had two other female black superheroes as X-Men.

    I loved her stint as X-Man in the Outback team, so just make Dazzler an X-Man. No solo movies.

    I couldn't agree more.

    No solo movies could possibly make room for more X-Men team movies.
