Dazzler's Disco - Page 2
Allison Goes to Hollywood - Again
One of Chris Claremont's greatest blunders while writing X-Men was that
whole "Seige Perilous" thing which he subsequently admitted he'd done a lousy
job of explaining. Given to the X-men by Romana, one of those omniversal and
very self righteous types it was supposed to judge people and send them off
to a new life. Since everyone thought they were dead the then Australia
based X-Men found it handy to toss enemies into it after they beat them. When
some pretty lame circumstances forced Psychloke, Colossus, Rogue and Dazzler
to retreat into it what happened was (except for Rogue) they emerged thousands
of miles away with no memory of their past lives.
Allison turned up near the Californian home of her former employer, the
singer and galactic thief Lila Chenney. Coincidentally with mutants being
hot properties after the X-men supposedly sacrificed themselves to save the
world (on national TV this time) a junior studio executive had dug the
Dazzler movie out of the vaults and was pushing to get it released.
Stumbling into Allison he managed to convince her to join him in marketing the
film. All of this rather upsetting to the now drug addicted producer whose
career had been ruined when "Dazzler : The Movie" crashed and burned however
long ago it had been. He passed his time smashing mannikins dressed and
looking like Dazzler and was delighted by the chance to have a shot at
the real thing. After the first few comic relief attempts failed he had a
bit more luck while she was on her way to the movie's premiere.
While she was out he dressed her in a copy of her old outfit so he'd
be in the right mood to slice and dice. But being an ordinary (if psychotic)
guy he had no way of neutralizing her powers.
At which point Allison realized she was in an unusual position for a
heroine in distress. She couldn't break free and she couldn't fight him
with her hands tied behind her back but there was nothing to stop her blowing
a hole clean through him with her light powers. Nothing except her own
Definitely a different ending and I assume he untied her after he got
off his knees.
Anyway Dazzler's peace corp plans didn't last. Before too long
she had her memory back and was blasting supervillains left, right and
centre. Last I saw of her she had just discovered Longshot had
knocked her up and they were planning to stay on Mojo's World to make
sure that Mojo II : The Sequel didn't repeat his father's mistakes.
As to what has happened to her since then I have absolutely no idea.
