The Untold Truth Of Marvel's Cloak And Dagger
Cloak and Dagger (comics)
While 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.
No recent wiki edits to this page. Cloak and Dagger are runaways: two lonely teenagers who ran away to New York City to seek a better life.
Tandy Bowen was a sixteen-year-old girl who grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio , a suburb of Cleveland where many wealthy people live. Bowen's mother, Melissa, was a celebrated but self-centered model who had become rich not only from her own career but also from receiving her previous husband's estate. Tandy's father left for India seeking "spiritual rebirth. Although Phillip was kind, Tandy was still deeply hurt by her father's departure and did not accept Phillip. Feeling unloved, Tandy turned to an older teenager named Rob Daltry for affection.
Joseph and Holt will return to portray Cloak and Dagger in the third season of the television series Runaways in a crossover episode. He recounted, "They came in the night, when all was silent and my mind was blank. They came completely conceived as to their powers and attributes, their origin and motivation. They embodied between them all that fear and misery, hunger and longing that had haunted me on Ellis Island. Ed Hannigan , Mantlo's artist collaborator on Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man , recalled that he and Mantlo jointly came up with the characters' visual design: "Bill had a short page or two synopsis of the story that he showed me, and we discussed what the characters would look like. He gave me a lot of leeway, but it was fairly obvious that Cloak would be black and have a big 'animated' black cloak and Dagger would be white with a skintight leotard-type thing. I am not sure, but I think I might have come up with her ballet angle.
