The MCU made it's way to the ABC network back in 2013 with Marvel's Agents of Shield. Now it's headed to Freeform! Variety is reporting that Freeform (previously known as ABC Family, {Disney's CW as I like to call it}) is in production on Marvel's Cloak and Dagger, which follows a young couple who use their superpowers to fight crime. That sounds super cool if you ask me.

Cloak and Dagger will be a must watch for sure. It got me thinking though, what other Marvel properties would work well on television, and what channels would they work on? Here's what I came up with:

1: Marvel's Young Avengers on Freeform

The Young Avengers are a team of heroes who were deemed too young to help the main Avengers. Featured members include Hulkling, Wiccan, Hawkeye (the Kate Bishop version), and America Chavez to name a few.

Why would they work on TV?

These are heroes who's powers require little or no special effects! The show wouldn't need a huge budget to make the heroes look legitimate.

Why Freeform?

Freeform's content is more PG compared to ABC's more PG-13 adult oriented programming and Disney Channel/XD's very G rated children's programming. Freeform would allow themes that wouldn't work on Disney Channel/XD while also not having huge expectations of viewership like on ABC.

2: Marvel's The Early Adventures of Kamala Khan! on Disney Channel

This one probably won't come around until Carol Danvers has been established in the MCU thanks to the origin and alter-ego of Kamala. When she finally can appear, Kamala would be a great fit for Disney Channel. Being a teen-aged girl with a secret alter-ego, Kamala would fit in well on the channel that gave us Hannah Montana and Kim Possible.

Why would she work on TV?

Kamala was practically made for kids TV! She's in school. She has an older brother who cares about her and irritates her. Her family's culture is different from the majority of her classmates. On top of all of that, she's an Inhuman and a HUGE fan of superheroes. Kamala on Disney Channel would be a definite hit and would draw the young female demographic to Marvel.

Why Disney Channel?

As I said before, she just fits. Kamala is the new Kim Possible, she can do anything, AND she has superpowers!

3: Marvel's Butterball and Taskmaster on Disney XD

Emery Schaub was an overweight kid who developed invincibility and invulnerability. He can't be harmed in any way and has limitless energy and stamina, however he can't gain or lose weight or muscle mass. His attitude is less than serious which rubs his mentor, Taskmaster, the wrong way.

Why would it work on TV?

Neither Taskmaster nor Butterball's powers require effects. On top of not needing a large budget, the duo's relationship would have a very light tone due to Butterball, even more so than the Marvel films.

Why Disney XD?

This show would most definitely have the tone of shows like Adventure Time and Spongebob, forcing very silly and very serious heroes to work together. Disney XD's programming, being very similar to Cartoon Network, would work well with this show and it's characters.

Whether any of these properties ever make it to the MCU at all, is a mystery. However, the Cloak and Dagger announcement gives these idea's that much more possibility. Cloak and Dagger coming to Freeform shows that Disney is ready to use all of their channels, not just ABC, to build out the MCU. I think it's safe to say we would all LOVE that! What Marvel show would you like to see them make, and which Disney owned network should it appear on? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
