Unlike the sneaky connection between Cloak and Dagger and Luke Cage, fans have been able to easily connect Cloak and Dagger to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter ever since Roxxon was connected to Tandy’s father and potentially the source of Tandy and Tyrone’s powers.
Joe Pokaski’s comments to ComicBook.com point toward Cloak and Dagger borrowing some of the elements surrounding Roxxon from S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter without exactly giving their storylines a do-over.
The Freeform series hasn’t officially said that the substance that turned young Tandy and Tyrone into time bombs just waiting to discover their powers as teens is Zero Matter/Darkforce, but it feels like only a matter of time.
