Dazzler was my favorite superheroine when I was little. I thought it was the bees knees that she was a disco star who wore mirrored roller skates and went to discos with Spiderman. Her powers were turning light into sound. Fun fact: Dazzler was salvaged from the wreckage of a failed Kiss comic book/movie tie-in. Originally, she was supposed to look like Grace Jones, but when Bo Derek showed interest in the film, Dazzler’s features were changed to look more like the 10 beauty.

Ultimately a weak title, but #Dazzler was underrated for the longest as an effective hero. She finally embraced superhero status joining the #XMen in the late '80s. @Marvel

Its deliberate stereotypes are uncomfortable, but they raise interesting questions about race in America.
