First appearance: Uncanny X-Men #130 (1980)

It's true: Back in the ‘80s, Marvel was grooming Dazzler to be its next hit property. With the ability to convert sound waves into intense beams of light, she was the perfect answer to the disco/new-wave craze that had taken over the minds of the youth. As it turned out, the character wound up fading away just as quickly as those trends did, and Dazzler was soon relegated to the bargain bin.

At one point, there was actually talk of making a Dazzler movie in the early ‘80s, but nothing ever came of it. Apparently, everyone realized what a huge mistake that would be, and that’s exactly why she lands on this list. Remember, disco and quality rarely ever mix.
