“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

CLOAK AND DAGGER_90 minutes

From my recollection, these two were/are kids who are cracked out on drugs living as degenerates on the streets, when in a moment of epiphany and clarity those same drugs released some hidden latent powers and abilites. Now they're vigilantes looking to take down the secret evil empire who supplied them with the same drugs that gave them super powers. Yay, Marvel! Crack kids as superheroes! Yay!

I know everyone's commenting on the Rocketeer, but I think these are both freaking sweet, and I'm commenting here because Dagger is hot.

you got it all mixed up... they were just runaways that were randomly kidnapped by the generic "badguys" then injected w/ some drug that somehow brought for latent mutant powers... *god, i'm such a nerd*
