This past week Marvel gave us a first look at its upcoming Cloak and Dagger series on ABC Freeform. It’s a teen drama set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Olivia Holt (Kickin It, Girl vs Monster) and Aubrey Joseph (Run All Night, The Night Of) as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson respectively. In the comics, Cloak and Dagger are two teen runaways who were exposed to drugs that gave them access to their mutant powers, with Cloak able to surround himself in a ‘cloak’ of darkness and Dagger able to create daggers of hard light. The duo made their debut in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64, and have shown up in Runaways, X-Men, and the ‘Marvel Knights’. The show will air its 10-episode season next-year.
