X-Men's Dazzler Getting a New Look

Writer Brian Michael Bendis announced today that the X-Men's Dazzler character will soon be undergoing a startling physical transformation in UNCANNY X-MEN #24.

Dazzler was recently recruited by SHIELD to hunt down a bunch of rogue X-Men (Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik). Pretty quickly, Dazzler was drugged and kidnapped by the mutant shape-shifter Mystique and then impersonated for months. Magneto eventually rescued Dazzler from captivity. And then Dazzler realized that nobody had even noticed that she'd been replaced.

Which led to her quitting SHIELD in disgust. Hence, I guess, the new look.

I'm not a huge fan of the new look. But maybe it will grow on me.

What do you all think?

The artists and editors working in comics right now adore Punk Rock culture. I remember reading an interview with one of them not long ago, and this dude said the Punk costume Storm used to wear, with the leather jacket and mohawk haircut, was the best superhero costume he'd ever seen. I mean, for real, dude? Storm is supposed to look majestic. If these folks had their way, they'd have all the super-heroines in safety pin nose clips, Lily Munster make-up and torn fishnet stockings.
