Cloak and Dagger, whose real names are Tyrone "Ty" Johnson and Tandy Bowen respectively, are a fiction comic book superhero duo in the Marvel Comics universe. They were created by writer William "Bill" Mantlo and designed by artist Edward Hannigan.
Cloak and Dagger first appeared in Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (March 1982). Since then, there have been a number of attempts to launch various ongoing Cloak and Dagger series, but none survived past 19 issues due to low sales. The pair did make numerous appearances as guest stars, appearing in a wide variety of titles, such as Runaways. The heroes were a prominent part of the Spider-Man Maximum Carnage story arc (Dagger was killed early in the battle, but reconstituted herself through Cloak). Cloak made a solo appearance in issues of the miniseries House of M, as a member of an underground human resistance movement. It was uncertain if Dagger also existed in the altered reality of House of M as there were no mentions of her during that storyline.
They have appeared in various other Marvel Universes, in one of which Cloak was killed. Dagger also served as a member of Marvel Knights in a short running mini-series.
It has been announced at the '08 San Diego Comic Con that the team will be reappearing once again in their own 5 part mini-series by writer Valerie D'Orazio, pencils by Irene Flores and colors by Emily Warren.
