Cloak and Dagger Comic Books | Marvel Database | FANDOM powered by WikiaWhile many think the name Freeform was a bad change from the previous ABC Family, the cable channel has proven itself in maintaining its image with quality programming. Freeform was smart to dip into the Marvel waters. Cloak is otherwise known as Tyrone Johnson played by Aubrey Joseph. Dagger is aka Tandy Bowen played by Olivia Holt. These names are retained from the comic book series, including Cloak being an African-American boy and Dagger a white girl. The interracial aspect was already unique when they first appeared as guests in a Spider-Man series of comic books.

Tandy and Tyrone's powers took the spotlight during episode 7, "Lotus Eaters," so now's the perfect time to look back at the source material for clues about what's next. The clip is an introduction to Cloak and Dagger's origins from the comic books; quite different from the TV series. In the original pages written by Bill Mantlo and drawn by Ed Hannigan, Tandy and Tyrone were kidnapped by a mad scientist in New York City who used runaway children to test out synthetic heroin. The experience left them with strange abilities. Tandy could summon a dagger of light and Tyrone could surround himself and others in darkness, giving him an array of abilities including teleportation.
