* LikeBrotherAndSister: This is the best description of their relationship. They truly love each other but usually, it's specifically stated to be platonic.
** In ''SecretWars2015 Runaways'', they actually are brother and sister.

Cloak and Dagger are a pair of superheroes in the MarvelUniverse. Originally appearing in [[Comicbook/SpiderMan Spectacular Spider-Man]] #64 (March, 1982), they were created by Creator/BillMantlo and Ed Hannigan. While never having been A-listers along the lines of ComicBook/TheMightyThor or ComicBook/IronMan, with their series often getting canceled after a very short period, they have a distinct cult following, which is somewhat tinted by nostalgia due to their [[TheEighties 1980s]] background. They often team-up with other superheroes, namely SpiderMan, who is a good friend. Before the series was cancelled, they also had a brief membership in the ComicBook/NewWarriors. Their most memorable recent appearances were in ComicBook/{{Runaways}} and [[ComicBook/DarkReign Dark]] ComicBook/XMen.

!! Tropes for Original Cloak and Dagger (Earth 616):

* AbortedArc: Their Spider-Island tie-in ended with a SequelHook suggesting confrontations a cult, D'Spayre, Nightmare, travels to other dimensions, all started by Mr. Negative attempting to delay his prophesied death at Tandy's hand, which he kicked off by using his touch to switch their powers. It's been years and nothing has come of it yet, the closest being another confrontation with Mr. Negative under a Spider-Man title again.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: According to vol. 2 of the title (1985-1987) and related issues, all persons absorbed through Cloak's darkness are sent to a demon by the name of Predator. It first uses nightmarish illusions to cause victims to despair, then feeds on their lifeforce. It is immortal and seemingly all-powerful in its home dimension. Until #10 of the series, when Cloak sends Doctor Doom to the Predator. He fails to despair, quickly overpowers the demon, and leaves it in severe pain. He then simply steps out of the darkness back into the real world, something which typically required outside assistance for prisoners of the Darkforce.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In an issue of The All New Ultimates, Cloak and Dagger share a kiss after mentioning that they never get any time alone together. Cue energy swirling all around them, and then the windows of the church exploding outward.

* HorrorHunger: Seemingly averted in the Ultimate incarnation of Cloak. He kept Bombshell in the folds of his cloak for a few minutes, and she emerged without the ill effects of Cloak's Earth 616 counterpart. We don't know enough, yet, though, as Dagger did seem to feel that Cloak keeping Bombshell in there for a prolonged length was dangerous to their adversary.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A 1991 storyline introduced Cloak's twin sister, Anna Johnson. She was a vagrant with [[DistressBall Danger Prone]] tendencies, which led to her having nasty encounters with neo-nazis, demons, and arsonists. As of her last appearance, later that year, she was scared and hiding somewhere in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. Cloak was contacting a search for her in an effort to reconnect with his last living relative. Cloak and Dagger's title was cancelled at about this time and this plotline was never resolved.

* MoralityGuidedAttack: This is how Cloak and Dagger vanquish adversaries. Cloak can enfold them in darkness, wherein villains encounter their own wickedness face to face, which often leaves them a quivering, neurotic wreck. Dagger can fling "light knives" which can stagger {{mooks}} and paralyze villains. Interestingly, Dagger's light knives had no effect on ComicBook/DoctorDoom, who has never regarded his actions as evil, but rather as his rightful destiny.
