early life

Tandy Bowen was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio, an affluent suburb of Cleveland. Bowen ‘s beget, Melissa, was a celebrated and egoistic model who had become rich people not only from her own career but besides from receiving her previous husband ‘s estate. Tandy ‘s beget had left for India seeking “ religious rebirth. ” subsequently, Melissa married Phillip Carlisle. Although kind, Tandy was still hurt by her father ‘s leave and did not accept Phillip. Her mother besides neglected her. [ 4 ] Feeling unloved, Tandy turned for affection to an older adolescent named Rob Daltry. But when he left for college concisely thereafter, the despondent Tandy left home on a bus topology for New York City. While there, a man tried to rob her but was stopped by the homeless Tyrone Johnson. She bought him food and the two became friends. [ 4 ]

Kidnapping and Experiment

Dr. Simon Marshall and his men rounded up runaways, offering them food and shelter. Naive, Tandy agreed, and Tyrone went with her, suspecting things were not good. There, they were knocked unconscious and injected with a designer drug the Maggia wished to use as a successor for heroin. Because of latent mutant genetic factors and some charming noise by D’Spayre, Tyrone and Tandy survived while the others died due to the drugs ‘ effects. [ 5 ] They escaped, along with another prisoner, the chinese human-carrier who would become Mister Negative, [ 6 ] alternate into the river, and both began manifesting superhuman powers. They discovered Tandy could keep Tyrone in check. Marshall ‘s men attacked, but were consumed by Cloak ‘s hunger then hit with Dagger ‘s light daggers. [ 7 ] [ 4 ]

Cloak & Dagger

The two became Cloak and Dagger, pledging to protect other young people from the dangers they had encountered. Tandy is ferociously loyal to Cloak. even when offered to be reunited with her stepfather, she remained with Cloak. [ 8 ] Cloak & Dagger besides teamed with Spider-Man and others to halt a homicidal supervillain rampage led by superhuman serial killer Carnage ; later, Dagger helped rescue the New Warriors from the supremely brawny Sphinx. She accepted an offer of New Warriors membership, though Cloak declined to join. Serving as a Warriors reservist, Dagger besides undertook a single mission with the cozy Secret Defenders group.

Cloak was manipulated by Nightmare into wanting to consume all lawbreakers. Dagger sought the aid of Daredevil, Black Widow, Moon Knight, Shang Chi, Doctor Strange, and the Punisher. finally, Dagger was forced to use her entire might on Cloak, which seemed to transfer his darkness to her, reverting him to normal. Cloak finally regained his powers from Dagger and the two continued to adventure. [ 9 ] More recently, the clandestine criminal group known as the Pride tricked Cloak & Dagger into trying to retrieve their superpowered children. An meet with these young Runaways soon convinced Cloak & Dagger of the Pride ‘s truthful nature, but before they could act on this cognition, the villains erased the duet ‘s memories of the Pride. Cloak & Dagger continued to roam the beggarly streets, bringing the sparkle of hope to the innocent and night judge to the guilty. neat Reginald Mantz managed to replicate Cloak ‘s powers with Mutant Growth Hormone. He then beat Dagger and left her hospitalize. The Runaways and the New Avengers found attest of “ Cloak ” acting this room and confronted the real Cloak and Dagger ; however, they finally discovered the truth. She and Cloak were able to regain their memories of the Runaways. [ 10 ] During the battle around the Superhuman Registration Act, she joined the Secret Avengers. She and Cloak were captured in a contrivance of Captain America to make S.H.I.E.L.D. trust his circumstantial ally Wilson Fisk. They escaped, were recaptured, and free for the final battle. As the Negative Zone Portal was closed, Tandy convinced Tyrone to open a portal site to Manhattan where the battle continued. [ 11 ]


At some period, Cloak and Dagger were active in Colombia, destroying drug plantations. The drug overlord hired Iron Patriot via the H.A.M.M.E.R. to take them down. rather, he recruited them into his own X-Men, [ 12 ] and used them against San Francisco rioters and Stephen Lang ‘s Bio-sentinels. [ 12 ] When Emma Frost and Namor finally revealed their true commitment, they asked Cloak and Dagger to stay back and, following the traitors to the newly built mutant nation of Utopia, were presented by Cyclops as being part of his plan from the beginning so they would be accepted in the community. [ 13 ] later, she was one of those who convinced Cyclops that his attitude toward Deadpool ( rejecting him from joining Utopia ‘s X-Men ) was kind of hypocritical. [ 14 ]


Cloak and Dagger ‘s powers were switched thanks to Mr. Negative during the events of Spider-Island : cloak now provided the light, while Dagger provided the darkness, and had to feed from Cloak ‘s light energy to temporarily satisfy her cravings. It was besides bode that Dagger would be the one to finally kill Mr. Negative. [ 15 ] [ 16 ]

All-New, All-Different

Although Martin Li was arrested at some point, Cloak and Dagger had been using Shade patches, which dosed them with a drug that stimulated the effects of Negative ‘s equal, ensuring that their criminal personas would ‘remain ‘ patriotic to him. Breaking him out of the prison embark where Li was being kept they restored him to Mister Negative to lead an assault on Parker Industries in Japan. Although Peter was able to escape being corrupted by damaging thanks to Negative ‘s anterior corruption of Spider-Man, Cloak and Dagger managed to help Negative escape when Peter tracked them to his Hong Kong headquarters by secretly placing a Spider-Tracer on Cloak. Using this tracer, Peter was able to inject Cloak with a remedy for Shade that he subsequently used to cure Dagger, obviously restoring their original powers. Although Mister Negative had escaped, Cloak and Dagger decided to remain in Hong Kong to guard it from any future attacks. [ 17 ]


Power Grid[24]


Lightforce Generation: As a consequence of her vulnerability to experimental drugs, Dagger generates a shape of ‘living light ‘ which is actually Lightforce. She produces much more than normal humans do, but is normally conservative in the function of her powers. overexploitation of her powers could be fateful. Dagger generates and stores this lifeforce energy automatically. If she goes for more than a week or so without using her powers she will become fevered and delirious, and finally discharge her energy involuntarily. When inverted by Mister Negative, Dagger draws her powers from the Darkforce, but they are otherwise identical, save for her daggers causing extra pain. [ 18 ]

  • Lightforce Daggers: Tandy can form 6-inch ‘light daggers’ which she can throw from her fingertips. Her daggers may automatically form under certain conditions, such as another person in danger. The maximum effective range is unknown, but the daggers seem to weaken with further distance. Tandy has a limited ability to control their flight and reinforce them by compelling them to seek targets. They can track a being, but it is most effective when searching for Cloak. Those hit by these knives have their own lifeforce disrupted. Dagger can then drain a portion of their lifeforce; enough to kill if she wishes. Normally she chooses to leave them in a state of shock where they will see a vision of how their life might be different. The experience is powerful enough to make most individuals rethink their choices, although a hardened criminal or evil being is unlikely to change their ways.
  • Lightforce Detoxification: Tandy’s energy can also ‘purge’ a person, removing toxins, drugs, and other malignant substances from their system. It also has the capacity to cure certain persons of drug addictions.
  • Lightforce Manipulation: Sometimes Tandy can redirect the daggers after they ricochet, other times the daggers are dispersed if they hit a non-living thing. She can project her lifeforce energy in a diffused manner, allowing her to illuminate dark areas as if by natural light. Tandy can also projects her ‘light’ into Cloak’s dimension to feed his ‘hunger.’ She is unharmed when traveling through his dimension and can pass this protection to others.
