Uncanny X-Men #214 (1987)

It starts with Dazzler being tormented by Malice.  But she’s a brunette right now.

Interesting spelling lesson.

Occasional collaborator Barry Windsor-Smith returns for a Dazzler story!  Alison is opening for Lila Cheney, who calls the X-Men for help because Dazzler is possessed by Malice (of the Marauders).

Wolverine also gets possessed by Malice.

And Psylocke stops him.

Psylocke is a full-on member now, involved in combat operations.

Dazzler’s powers finally seem to matter.  Malice can’t seem to possess Storm–perhaps because her mutant powers are still neutralized?


In the end, Dazz joins the team.
