1980 - Dazzler revisited

Jim Shooter's blog is a wealth of information on the Marvel 1980s and he's recently posted about the origins of Dazzler (

Here are some of the more interesting Dazzler tidbits (

  • "At the height of the bidding war, Bo Derek decreed that her husband, John HAD to be the director.  Famous for behind-schedule, over-budget debacles, John Derek had to direct or no Bo. Every bidder withdrew."
  • Dazzler #1 ended up selling 428,000 copies.
  • You can download a copy of the Dazzler movie treatment here: 


  1. Interesting link to Jim Shooters page, I think Daryl Hannah would have made a great Dazzler. Well no Dazzler movie, then again the charcter I read out in comics and loved , would have never existed. Be well.
