    Since their first appearance in a 1982 issue of Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man, the mysterious heroes known as Cloak and Dagger have captivated Marvel's true believers. Their unique and complementary powers, along with an intriguing backstory and a compelling romantic angle, made them fan favorites long before they hit TV. But while everybody knows about Spider-Man, fewer know the finer details of this relatively obscure, co-dependent superhero duo. If you're in the dark, we'll shine a light on the untold truth of Cloak and Dagger…

    Yeah, that last part about despair was where I got off. I followed C&D for years and loved the spiritual element to their powers, how they could punish (cloak) and absolve (dagger) people with their powers. When they made that spiritual aspect be the work of a villain and then removed that from the pair, it destroyed what made them unique. Without the hunger of his darkness, Dagger had less and less reason to be with him and it was harder to believe she would choose him over her pampered and privileged life. She needed him to absorb her excess light and he needed her to feed his darkness so it didn't overwhelm him. It was the perfect codependent relationship. And then they ruined it for no good reason. The despair plot is one of those that Marvel should have retconned but didn't. Like Nightcrawler's Draco subplot where his dad was an actual demon or a demon looking mutant who was fighting against a race of angelic mutants which messed up Angel's backstory, too. Every once and awhile Marvel screws up and does a really stupid plot that fundamentally changes the character like Spiderman and his "magic" spider bite. Fortunately they retconned Spiderman which got rid of this plot but also got rid of his relationship with his wife Mary Jane. After they "neutered" Cloak & Dagger, they couldn't really do anything with them and they disappeared for a long while, popping out once and awhile like in Civil War where Cloak transported Captain America and his team once or twice. Waste of a great crime-fighting team.

    Why did they not speak about Daggers need for Cloaks darkness????
    She needs him to purge her uncontrollable production of light. Without Cloak, she becomes saturated with light, feverish and an addict....
    Cloak "cools the fires that burn within her"....
    ALL of this was in a Marvel Fanfare graphic novel from the 80s...
    Cloak seemed to understand this from the start, but dagger had to learn the hard way.... that they both linked to each other....and their childhood is gone....another great metaphor for the affects of addiction on users and their families....
    This video leaves out that MAJOR plot point.....It's yet another bitter sweet part of the story that makes Cloak and Dagger soooo good....
    Doesn't look like we'll get any of this in this "cotton candy" TV show Disney created.... maybe someday....when the story is took YEARS to get batman right....they'll make money either way....story be damned....

    Interestingly enough in a teamup with New Mutants Wolfsbane and Sunspot were inject with the same drug and gained similar powers but were driven insane by them. Cloak and Dagger each have the ability to purge/absorb drugs from people's systems. They were able to use those abilities to restore the 2 mutants to normal

      andre nelson that is an interesting question. Originally, no. They were two strangers tied together by the nature of their powers and backstory. But as they went on, it got to be more bf and gf. Cloak loved Dagger but she kept him in the friend zone for a long time, which led to many plots of jealousy on Cloak's part. There were many plots of people trying to "save" Dagger from Cloak because they believed him to be evil. I never got the racist undertones, but as a young white kid, I wanted Cloak & Dagger to get together and got upset when people tried to break them up. Idk what they are going to do for the show.

    • eric peterson
      eric peterson Hace 9 meses

      While I agree that there was more than a bit of racism to the black/darkness and white/light dichotomy, there also is the esthetics to the characters. These are artists after all. Darker skins go well with darkness. Much better than lighter skins. Not only did they make Dagger white but also a platinum blonde to push that white light color palette. The rest comes from the opposites theory. They made Cloak poor and ghetto because they thought this would appeal to more blacks. (Also you could argue that comics in general always used this stereotype) Then to show the contrast, Dagger is the whitest white person (who is rich and popular to boot). So, yeah, the stereotypes are heavily used, but they really wanted to push the opposites thing.

      We've also seen updates to old stories by changing it up. Why couldn't Cloak be a white male and Dagger be a black female? There is a larger agenda to this and why a Liberal studio chose to revive this particular series.

      mystic Cleg Some Brown people are classified as BLACK. Socially, that is my racial classification. 😂History shows it. They see Black is bad while light is always good. Yes, they are fictional superhero’s but it’s still problematic. Why did cloak have to embody darkness and be black? Why did dagger have to be white and represent light? In the original comic he was poor, from a bad neighborhood while she was rich. Why are brown people or African Americans called Black?? Black is a derogatory term and that is how they classify us. 😂 the creator of the characters played into it

    I HATE the black = hunger/darkness - white = sustaining light angle. Would be FAR more interesting the other way round.
    I HATE the relationship angle. Love stories are often tedious and there’s absolutely no need to jam opposites together in every story.
    WHEN will there be different stories, without the same boring tropes? This is a miss for me.

    • eric peterson
      eric peterson Hace 9 meses

      Yeah, that always bothered me, too. That the black guy is the evil darkness that fed on the white girl's pure good light. And further, that Cloak seemed less "black" when using his powers (spoke better grammar and didn't stutter). I think they were trying to say something about interracial relationships, but in hindsight, I can see it where it could be considered pretty racist. But then, most of the black heroes in Marvel comics had very stereotypical racial backgrounds. Grew up in the ghetto, played basketball, didn't do well in school, maybe some gang affiliation of some kind. I think they (the very white writers) were trying to use these characters to reach out to young urban blacks in the only way they knew how. All I know is when I was a kid, I wanted to be Cloak. But as a white kid, I probably felt the way black kids did about Captain America or Thor, that I couldn't because I was the wrong race.

    I recall hearing that the show was coming out and thinking it was on Netflix, was like "Fuck yea...!" Then I looked into it and it's on Freeform. Truth be told, this show would probably have been better suited to accompany what's going on over on Netflix. Can't imagine a show like this doing well on... what I'm guessing is like ABC Family. I tried to watch that Stitchers show when it first came out and it was somewhat frustrating because it would be like "Right there" in the conceptual content, but still restrain itself from exploring such a premise to its full potential.

    So, in 2010 they realized that Fox has the rights so they did the same with Scarlet Witch and QuickSilver, so clever, but no.

      Little Ruby Lion yeah, and it sucked. There is an aesthetics to the character design absent of the implied racism. It is also the reason that dagger has to be a platinum blonde and not a redhead or a brunette. There is also some sexism involved since the man is the consuming dark desire and the woman is the nurturing/purifying light. I don't think it would work if you switched sexes or races.

    The only reason they distanced them from being mutants is because Marvel was upset Fox had the X-Men. And the only reason they were said to have mutant adventures is because the X-Men were popular at the time. Basically they're mutants of convenience.

      I thought they already had powers but when they took the drugs it intensified the powers. It brought the powers to the surface

      actually there is a reason. (well i explain this but i'm white andthe product of my racist country so ...) Cloak is black because he's represent the people in the shadow, the people that are invisible also the people that everybody sees as dangerous juste for the colour of their skin. Dagger is the light because she is a pretty girl. She represent the people that can't walk on the street without being harrassed, the people that can't be discret, the people that will always being stare at whatever they dress.

      a comics worth is only partiely decided by their success its all supply and demand if they go big demand will go up but because they are relatibvely new comics the pricess wont explode for that to happen supply needs to be small like take for example action comics no1 it had a high demand cause you know supermans first comic and was l n low supply because in WW2 the US asked the public to give them papers and because comic book colecting wasnt a thing everyone gave their copies this is why there are less than 100 action comics no 1 to this day so even if they go big you will not be a millionere because there are thousands of these comic books lying around

      Also if Cloak does not feed off her light she gets sick and feverish almost like a withdrawal. She needs him as much as he needs her. Not sure why they skipped that part.
