Powers: Dazzler has the mutant ability to absorb sound and transform it into light (in various forms). Over time, Alison has been able to store excess energy for an undetermined time. Dazzler can will the light out of her body by concentrating, allowing her to fire blasts of light from her eyes and fingers. She can also make a powerful strobe blast that can blind her opponents, as well as creating emotional altering glow around herself. Her powers cannot blind herself and will cause her to glow if she doesn't concentrate enough. Ironically, Alison cannot use her own voice to power her mutant talent, so she sometimes carries a small tape player with her to provide energy for her mutation.

Origin: Alison Blaire is a mutant whose superhuman powers first manifested themselves in her late adolescence. As an aspiring singer, Blaire was performing at a high school dance when her ability to transform sound into light first surfaced. Upon graduation she set out to make a name for herself in the entertainment world using her light powers to create spectacular effects as she sang. She used the stage name The Dazzler. Virtually no one knew that Blaire was a mutant; almost everyone in her audiences assumed that her lighting effects were created through technological means. Although Blaire had no intention of using her special powers to fight crime on a regular basis, time and again she found herself using them to thwart the criminal activities of gangsters and renegade superhumans. In her first appearance, Alison helped the X-Men release some of their comrades from the White Queen. She turned down their original offer to join the team, and continued her singing career.

Eventually Blaire moved to the Los Angeles area from New York City, and formed a romantic and professional relationship with Hollywood celebrity Roman Nekoboh. Nekoboh produced a motion picture (which was never released) featuring Blaire, and persuaded her to reveal publicly that she was a superhumanly powerful mutant. The revelation backfired, stirring up renewed public hostility against mutants. Blaire was virtually blacklisted in the entertainment industry, and had to take primarily low-paying obscure jobs in order to continue her singing career. Rogue, at the time a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, tried to kill Dazzler for her popularity on numerous occasions, but the two have since reconciled.

After the Marauder Malice possessed Dazzler, she decided to join the X-Men, shortly after the Mutant Massacre. Blaire sought and received training in the use of her superhuman abilities from the X-Men. As a result, she is now far more adept in the use of her powers than she was in the past. Alison and Longshot hit it off rather quickly and became a couple. Dazzler (along with the other X-Men) went through the Siege Perilous to avoid death at the hands of the Reavers. She reappeared in Lila Chency's beach house, where she was a nearly-complete ammensiac. Her boyfriend Longshot teleported in and, with Lila and Alison, travelled to the Mojoverse. Dazzler and the X-Men helped defeat Mojo and liberate the Spined-Ones. The two have been placed as the rulers there and are attempting to build their world into a much more fair and hospitable place. When last seen, Dazzler had decided to take care of the X-Babies, miniature versions of the X-Men created by Mojo.
