Cloak and Dagger
Real Name: Tyrone "Ty" Johnson and Tandy Brown
First Appearance: Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64
Why: Two former drug addicts who are subject to an experimental narcotic that unleashes their mutant powers, Cloak and Dagger could be the centerpiece of an "on the ground" storyline which finds S.H.I.E.L.D. dealing with a criminal element trying to take advantage of a new "world" of super weapons and powers. Moreover, duplicating their powers wouldn't be that hard and a potential series was already in development for ABC Family. If a big hit, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." would be the prefect show to spin off from.
Why Not: It's unclear if ABC/Disney/Marvel has the rights to the world "mutant" on television (they currently don't on the big screen). If not, that could be problematic in explaining their powers. The duos origin and addictions might also be a tad too dark for a primetime show airing at 8 PM.
