Rodrigo could be Dazzler
Dazzler first appeared in The Uncanny X-Men #130 (1980) by Chris Claremont, John Byrne, Terry Austin, Tom Orzechowski, and Glynis Wein.
She is a mutant who can convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams, but she’s also a pop star who travels the world on music tours. Naturally, you can see how her power set compliments her musical career!
And you can see why the eighteen-year-old Rodrigo would be incredible in the role. Rodrigo’s first album, Sour, includes many sonic masterpieces – which is why she’s been nominated for seven Grammy Awards, only the thirteenth person to ever receive that many nominations! The nominations include “Best New Artist,” “Record of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.”
Furthermore, if you’re curious whether or not Rodrigo could hold her own onscreen, just take a look at her performance in the music video for “Good 4 U”:
With the Rogers Broadway musical making an appearance in Hawkeye, the first two episodes of which will debut tomorrow, Wednesday, November 23rd, 2021, on Disney+. Has the era of music arrived? Is the hour of Dazzler upon us?
