Today Brian Michael Bendis posted something on his Tumblr It appears that Alison Blaire, Dazzler will be getting a make over in Uncanny X-Men #24!
The reveal was made earlier today, Friday when Brian Michael Bendis usually shows upcoming covers of his projects. Bendis was asked for the cover to Uncanny X-Men #24 and responded with the cover that features Dazzler's "Ultimate" makeover.
"Since it's Friday and that's when you show upcoming covers, can you reveal to us the cover to Uncanny X-Men (vol. 3) #24?"
ladies and gentlemen, the new dazzler! by kris anka"

Dazzler made her debut in Uncanny X-Men #130 (1980), and has been a fan favorite. She recently joined Uncanny X-Men as a Mutant Liaison to S.H.I.E.L.D. before being kidnapped and replaced by Mystique who held Dazzler as a source of M.G.H. (Mutant Growth Hormone).
This is also not the first time Bendis has given Ms. Blaire a rock/punk makeover. In 2004's Ultimate X-Men #42 Bendis and artist David Finch brought her to the book with a not too dissimilar look.
Uncanny X-Men #24 is a part of the The Last Will And Testament of Charles Xavier Original Sin story which leads me wondering if Original Sin or Mystique responsible for Dazzler's new look?
