Just when you thought you couldn’t be more excited about the impending arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse, we get news that Dazzler will be appearing in the movie.
Well, sort of.
Earlier today, Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) tweeted out this gem.

That’s right, it appears that Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) is big fan of disco-era Dazzler.
I’m actually more concerned about that Anne Murray album being in the “rock” section in the background.
Not familiar with Disco Dazzler? As a child of the 80s I am the proud (?) owner of a significant run of her eponymous title, so let me fill you in:
Don’t judge. It was the 80s.
Alison Blaire was a mutant with the power to convert sound into light. She was also a decent singer. So, what did she do? She used her mutant abilities to create dazzling (see what I did there?) light shows for her concerts. Concerts often featured her in a plunging silver disco jumpsuit, roller skates, KISS-inspired face paint, and wearing a disco ball necklace.
Incidentally, the album cover in that picture is the actual cover of Dazzler #29 by none other than Bill Sienkiewcz.
I wonder what tracks are on that album?
- Lights! Music! Disco!
- BAMF! Went My Heart
- Longshot at Love
- Do You Think I’m X-ey?
Okay, that’s enough of that.
X-Men: Apocalypse opens in theaters on May 27.
