Marvel delivers a superpowered dose of teen drama.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger combines two star-crossed heroes from different backgrounds who collectively make New Orleans’ most fearsome teenage duo.

Tandy Bowen (Dagger) is a street-savvy thief who emits light daggers and strikes like a vengeful angel. Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) engulfs himself in shadows to hide from enemies. He can also teleport and can sense others’ nightmares just by looking at them. Together, they unite through shared childhood tragedy to fight the forces of evil and conquer their fears—all while juggling their own feelings for each other, making an already-complicated world even more challenging.
