Marvel's Cloak and Dagger trailer...

Showing up on Freeform...  I'm not familiar enough with these characters to have any strong feelings about this apparent origin story.  Looks very teen drama that just kinda happens to work in some super powers.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

That's basically what the comic was. First app was in a Spiderman comic in the 80's I think

They originally get their powers from being lab rats for a new synthetic heroin.  They don't have any early life connection.  Looks like that has changed, but I don't think it's terminal.

I was thinking when they showed the new synth heroin in Iron Fist it'd tie into this show but it's unclear from the trailer. The tone is pretty much exactly what I expected when they announced it for freeform. Though I must say Shadowhunters was a lot more watchable than I expected on that channel so it may be ok despite the teen romance drama. It wouldn't take much to make them better than they are in the comics or the crappy Ultimate Spider-man cartoons.

If memory serves, Roxxon was the name of the company experimenting with "dark matter" in Agent Carter.  Given what it did in that show, it is entirely possible that it is connected to Cloak's powers in this iteration of Cloak and Dagger.

Roxxon Oil has shown up in some fashion in each of the Iron Man movies, Agent Carter, SHIELD, Daredevil, and Iron Fist.

In Agent Carter they were collaborating on Stark's nitramene weapon.

Going to be very teen angstie but might still be worth watching.  But I get the feeling it might be a social drama of the week thing where they just deal with drug dealers, suicidal teens, abused transgender kids etc rather than any superhero stuff.

I think Freeform is also the channel doing the New Warriors cartoon which could potentially be much better.

Well this trailer came out of nowhere... It looks like another Marvel Netflix series by looking at the trailer. It looks interesting, I didn't know Marvel have another interracial superhero couple other than Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.  I do like the score Marvel added to the trailer.  :)

It is supposed to air on the Freeform network, which is the renamed ABC Family channel.
