Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger surprised me in the best way possible. It’s a show that tackles heavy themes and strives for a place within New Orleans’ rich and varied history, all while providing those comic book story thrills. Aside from Agent Carter and Luke Cage, I haven’t been the biggest fan of Marvel’s TV offerings, but Cloak & Dagger offers something new and mature.
One of my personal gripes with the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole is that it doesn’t often speak with its chest when it comes to honestly tackling hot-button issues. But Cloak & Dagger absolutely does. It’s a series that’s not afraid to talk openly about racial discrimination, sexism, the effects of police brutality and harsh family dynamics. This isn’t a show for fanboys; it’s a show for people who are angry with society and want to change it for the better. This is Marvel at its most activist-driven, and it’s a side of Marvel we should see more often within the MCU.
There’s so much to say about Cloak & Dagger’s spectacular first season, so let’s break it down into some component parts. And, of course, talk about what we’d like to see in season 2.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The season finale of Cloak & Dagger has come and gone, and I can honestly say that this show has been a blast to watch. Each week, the series seamlessly weaved New Orleans culture with Marvel’s comic book flair, creating something wholly unique to the Marvel TV universe. The trend continued this week with “Colony Collapse.” The big climax of the season was Roxxon’s valves erupting and putting New Orleans in danger. But, in true Cloak & Dagger fashion, it happened during Mardi Gras, one of New Orleans’ biggest holidays, and brings the African spiritual implications of the Divine Pairing to its head.
Even more interesting is that in order for Tandy and Tyrone to save society, everything must be flipped and turned around, which could create more chaos later on. But for right now, it’s what our superheroes need to do to save the world.
