Cloak (Tyrone “Ty” Johnson) is a vigilante who was experimented on. He, is a mutant who can create holes into the darkforce dimension, and send people into this dimension. He reminds me of Herald from Teen Titans the 2003 animated series who used a trumpet to open up a portal to send super villains into another dimension.Dagger (Tandy Bowen) was also experimented on. she is a mutant who has the ability, to create psionic light daggers, her light daggers can also cure living drug addicts.
The two characters are meant to be together because both of their powers cancel each out, for example: Cloak is hungry for light and Dagger’s light powers may overpower her. The two need each other to maintain their powers themselves. This is the reason why they are in a relationship. Cloak and Dagger taught each other street-fighting to stop criminals in Boston. Dagger’s combat techniques utilise her light powers and ballet dance training, as well as her sense of spatial relations, which had been heightened by her temporary blindness.
Tyrone “Ty” Johnson (Cloak) and Tandy Bowen (Dagger) met in New York City as runaways. Tyrone was a 17-year-old boy from Boston, Massachusetts with a debilitating stutter and ran away to New York City when his speech impediment prevented him from stopping his friend from being shot by police, who mistakenly believed he had just robbed a store.
Tandy Bowen was a 16-year-old girl from a privileged upbringing (born in Shaker Heights, Ohio) who ran away because her multi-millionaire supermodel mother was too busy with her career and social life to spend time with her daughter. When they met, Tyrone considered stealing Tandy’s purse, but before he could, a thief stole the purse and Tyrone retrieved it for her. Afterwards, they had dinner and became fast friends.
Cloak and Dagger became vigilantes and hunted and killed Simon Marshall and his drug-dealing henchmen responsible for activating their powers. They first encountered Spider-Man during these events. They next murdered Silvermane in revenge, and battled his reanimated cyborg form. They next teamed with Spider-Man to thwart the Punisher‘s murder attempt on the Kingpin.
