Synopsis
The Beyonder wishes to explore the human concept of desire and picks Dazzler (whom he calls possibly the most powerful mutant to walk the planet) as his new love interest. Despite all of his best efforts at wining and dining, gift giving, emotional manipulation and showing off with his powers, he finds that the only way he can make her fall for him is to control her mind and force her. Finding this to be unfulfilling, he releases her from his control and abandons his quest.
