Marvel is working their winning formula again. They are making the big blockbuster movies starring their most popular power-house characters. For their TV/Netflix series they are using their lesser known characters. This time they have chosen Cloak & Dagger to be on ABC Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
Cloak & Dagger is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and shares continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise. You should see and hear references to other Marvel characters and events. The duo made their first appearance in Spectacular Spider-man #64, so maybe we will have a Spidey cameo. I like the inter-connectivity between Marvel’s TV and movie titles. It makes it feel like a much larger superhero world.
Cloak’s body is a portal to the “Darkforce Dimension”. Cloak is linked to a pocket realm of that dimension dominated by the Predator, which compels Cloak to absorb the life forces of other beings.
Dagger has the ability to generate and throw “light daggers” which stun targets by forcing them to confront the darkness in their own souls. Her light also alleviates Cloak’s thirst for light and warmth.
The previews I’ve seen so far look promising. Hopefully Cloak & Dagger will be just as good as the Runaways. I am also hopeful we will see those two shows crossover as they did in the comics.
