Cloak and Dagger and Constantine

I've seen a trailer for the upcoming Cloak and Dagger TV show, and while it didn't show much in the way of powers or costumes, I liked what I saw.  The actors seemed well cast and the tone seemd right.  I think they are great characters for the small screen and the show has potential.  I'll definitely be checking it out.

Hmmmm - just who is responsible for terrorizing the neighborhood?  Make sure you come back tomorrow for the thrilling conclusion!

Oh Heathcliff Heathcliff... No one should terrorize the neighborhood.

Hmmm. There once was a series called "Vincent Price Presents", so there are cover images of him, and there's that "Marvel Zombies" cover with Dazzler et al in the iconic dance poses. Not many covers with MJ himself, though.

If Constantine's already determined that the culprit came from Hell, then my guess would be Hellboy, Spawn, or Barney.

Oh, and speaking of heroes on the small screen, I just got to see the Vixen compilation movie. With her connection to Anansi (in the comics as well as the TV version), I think it might be interesting to see her teamed up with another hero who's been connected with the trickster spider: Spider-Man!

Very intriguing!

I was initially going to guess Darkling from the 1980's version of Archie Comics' Mighty Crusaders. That series ended on an unresolved cliff-hanger that included the banishment of that mind-wiped wizardess to another dimension.

But, then I remembered: Constantine specifically used a _masculine_ pronoun! So, it couldn't be Darkling, much as I might hope otherwise (since her power base is so similar to Cloak's).

That leaves two other suspects in my book: a pre-Flashpoint Obsidian; and the Silver Age Psycho-Pirate! I'd prefer the former. But, again, only because his power base is so similar to Cloak's. The latter, however, would be almost as welcome (as a near-worthy adversary) given that he still has some of the "old" knowledge. That is; his memories of the pre-Crisis multiverse.

The question is: who would have the eldritch power to send Psycho-Pirate into the STFU? I have three suspects. The Silver Surfer's arch-enemy, Mephisto; the xenomorphic-looking N'garai who are always plaguing the X-Men; or, perhaps, a slave-disc-controlled counterpart of Axel "Access" Asher working for Thanos.

Something tells me, though, that the answer will prove "None of the above."

Based purely on the title of the story, I'm guessing Rorschach's back from the dead.

Looks like we were both wrong, double-m. :-(
