Dazzler's New Look

Dazzler isn't too happy and she's giving herself a makeover.

Dazzler's had it rough lately. She became the mutant liaison for S.H.I.E.L.D. and some didn't take that too well, calling her a traitor and such. To make things worse, Mystique kidnapped Dazzler and was farming her to produce the Mutant Growth Hormone drug. While Dazzler was sedated and locked away, Mystique was posing as her causing even more mischief.

Dazzler was finally rescued by Magneto and she's not too happy with recent events.

As Dazzler gets back on her feet, she's giving herself a new look. This isn't the first time she's changed things up. We all know originally she was a Disco Queen. She also had that blue spandex look with the short hair and headband.

Kris Anka posted her new look on his Tumblr.

The question is, what do you think of this new look for Dazzler? Do you like the change in hair color and style? Do you like the torn costume look to match her anger?

We also have a poll going if you really want to make your thoughts official-like and vote.

As someone who genuinely likes Dazzler, I'm not trilled with the look.

Ditto. This is such bullsh*t.

Yeah, when Bendis shared this on Tumblr I wasn't impressed. He keeps trying to reassure us that he cares about the character, but this doesn't strike me as a believable direction...even in spite of what has happened to her.

...Though there may be some narrative revelations that might justify this. I simply can't imagine what those would be.

I'm glad someone is at least giving her a shot at the limelight.

I'm fine either way but what age is Dazzler again?

Posted by Peregrine

It looks just like X-Men Evolution's Scarlet Witch...so an utter emo-goth wannabe travesty.

The 90's just called they want their character design back.

Jokes aside I like the flatnes of the image in contrast to the grungy 90s over pencilled Jim Lee/McFarlane style

What's the thing about Marvel trying to give macho/lesbian make-overs to her superheroines???Dazzler, Storm, Miss Marvel, who's next???

Posted by warlock360

@hyperman: Storm has the look she rocked in the 90's

This looks like a DC redesign. And that's not a good thing. At all.

There is nothing punk rock about a turtleneck...... Other than that I can imagine Comic Book Girl 19 is doing back flips that they made her favorite X-Men look more like her......

I'm telling yall, MARVEL is rebooting the universe.

Hence how everyone looks different and YOUNGER.

Horrible

Dogshit, this is what this change is.

No, just no.

This makes me miss 1610 Brody Dalle Dazzler.......

Posted this a few hours ago, but no one wanted to post in my thread. v.v

This is a huge mistake and I really hope this doesn't last.

Haha, it's New 52 Dazzler!

I love it! Dazzlerr said shes not ok. Plus shes a musician. Very good depiction of anger in fashion.

I agree, I love this so much, leave Bendis and Anka alone I say. This new look suits the reasoning behind it.

@judasnixon: Man, I miss that version of Dazzler so much!

Posted by The Impersonator

When she gets angry, she'll become Huzzler.

Posted by thedevilhunter89

Change isn't always bad, and this I can accept....don't love it, but its acceptable.

Just when I was starting to sort of like the character they decide to ruin it...

@warlock360:

The look that rocks from the 90's is The Jim lee's look, the one that we saw X.men TAS. This look has nothing to do with it

Posted by The Stegman

Will she now work at Hot Topic?

This was my favorite costume of hers. Militaristic, but still glam

Posted by Blizaga101

I like the punk idea, but all the torn holes isnt really working for me. doesnt feel like a superhero but just a punk?

I actually really like the general redesign. Too many holes in her clothes, though.

Posted by AlKusanagi

So Comicbookgirl19 dresses up like Dazzler, and now Dazzler's dressing up like Comicbookgirl19.

Edited by G-Man

@warlock360: It was actually the early-80s when Storm first took this look.

@g_man: i was just looking for it myself and couldn't find it in the 90's range, thanks for digging that up lol

I hate when they get mediocre artists to do the first draft of a character redesign. Dazzler looks terrible...

dazzler was never a great character. but Ultimate Dazzler was worst character ever, a shallow cardboard cutout sterotype of emo/punk/metal culture and Bendis made her. Can't believe he's doing the exact same thing again!

I remember there was this guy on Marvel Forum and on CBR who was obsessively in love with Ultimate Dazzler. he posted nonsense for months about how Ultimate dazzler death was worst thing in the world.
I bet he's far too excited about this news.

Ew

Posted by Oscars94

What's up with loads of Marvel women getting mohawks? Carol Danvers, Storm, etc. Dazzler kinda looks like Domino now too.

Trash

...well not the best but I guess it could have turned out way worse

Posted by nappystr8

There's nothing wrong with the design itself, but it makes no sense for Dazzler to be goth all the sudden, especially when goth hasn't been in-style for like 10 years.

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I love Kris Anka's art and his redesigns. He is great.

Edited by Smart_Dork_Dude

Rocker Dazzler? I dig it!!!

Also second I saw the new look, this song came to mind

I am fully aware of that look. What i meant was that her most known and iconic look is this one:

or maybe her original costume as well:

Hahaha You took the words right out of my mouth. This is ridiculous to the n-th degree.

So apparently Bendis just discovered Nu metal from the late 90's, This look is already terribly dated, I guess Bendis was attempting to modernize Dazzler by barring her from the 80's to the late 90's?, This girl look like she came from a Coal Chamber concert rocking an antichrist superstar T-shirt.

Edited by InkInk

It's garbage. I guess the artist saw Joker's daughter and thought he could out do him for a crappiest attempt at an edgy redesign.

aHaha that's what I thought
