Meeting the Mutant
Harry S. Osgood was working on his usual business until he was contacted by a young woman named Allison Blair. She wanted to become a rock-star and showed him what she could do and how she sang. Although Harry was impressed, he wanted to have her do an official audition. This was all wrecked when Allison Blair (whom was also the mutant named Dazzler) was attacked by the Norse Goddess the Enchantress. After the battle, Harry was relunctant to take Dazzler on board, but the appearance and persuasion of a number of super-heroes caused Harry to sign Allison as his star and he became her talent and publicity agent.
Topping the Charts
A slow but steady line of gigs sought out by Harry caused Dazzler to become a true pop-star. When Dazzler moved from New York, she also gave up her contract with Harry S. Osgood, as the two parted ways and would not see eachother for a long time.
