If you're like me, then you get excited about everything Marvel! This sounds crazy, but today Cloak and Dagger received the green light for a new series on Freeform (ABC Family!). This is crazy, especially with all the reports of other Marvel shows everywhere else. This makes sense, Freeform is trying to lure a younger demographic and this show would do it.

In the straight-to-series pickup from Marvel, Cloak and Dagger (Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen), follows two interracial teens on some rocky adventures. I wonder how faithful Freeform is going to be with the source material. Dagger can do some cool stuff with light and emit daggers from herself. Cloak has even crazier powers -- he can do some wicked things with the darkness to different places.

The first time I saw them outside of the comics was on DisneyXD's Ultimate Spider-Man. They were getting recruited by both Taskmaster and Spider-Man. They first ended up joining Taskmaster because of their distrust of everyone else. Eventually, they ended up on Team Spidey and still appear sporadically. I know I will be watching this show whenever it premieres!
