DP Dot Com Super Heroine Series: DAGGER

cloak dagger

Holler at my homey from Poisonous Paragraphs because he be dropping that official comic book flavor too.

Dagger was a chick named Tandy Bowen who ran away from a privileged life of wealth to become an angel and protector for runaways and kids that were hooked on heroin and drugs. Her partner was a brother named Tyrone(seriously, Marvel writers were always infected with Lowest Common Denominator syndrome when creating Black characters, Cloak is just lucky they didn’t name him Black Cloak). Together they formed the duo of Cloak and Dagger.

Dagger had one of the baddest little bum-bums in the Marvel universe, and she was in love with a Black man. How fucking hot is that? She protected Cloak from himself because his power of enveloping darkness always threatened to consume his soul. Her power was to be able to create bursts of bright, white light from her hands.

Can you imagine for a second what she could shoot from her pum pum?

    re-reading these comics now as a twentysomething, i stay imagining who’s sexier with it: dazzler or dagger?

    come to think of it, they’re both the same chick:

    -ran from nice homes with w.a.s.p. lifestyles
    -rocked the white catsuit (initially for dazzler)
    -never stayed in marvel’s big leagues
    -light powers (dazz changes sound to light)
    -entertainment a big part of their life (ballet, sanging)

    what more can be thought of?

    She got that Eryka Badu Pum

    White Comic chicks did have black asses for real.

    Ditto on the Dazzler thing.

  6. Yeah Dagger’s ass is the truth. I can’t recall the last time my wood got petrified from seeing a cartoon woman. [||] on describing my wood

    This is what makes voluptuous women body type, in their prime/heyday, so awesome. For instance like Beyonce, Serena, Kim Kardashian today, or Jennifer Lopez 5 yrs ago.

    It’s like their real-life bodies are almost cartoonish, almost defying gravity. How can the T&A be so juicy & large, with still a slim/6-pack stomach?

    1 real annoying thing is the waif white women on the TV media will describe a Serena like “it’s good that ‘plus-size’ women are accepted in our culture”.

    No you waif douche generic broad! A waif women can’t add 20 lbs & magically look like Serena or Kardashian. No, if a waif woman tries that, she’ll just be actual normal healthy body weight (since waif = anorexic), but still have a pancake non-existent ass & small breasts.

    The vuluptuous woman body steez is mostly genetic.

    Send these waif/Cosmo type biatches back to an Obvious Human Health seminar 101, taught by the Chair of Bootyology, Dr. Sir Mix A Lot.

    Although I grew up on Marvel I found it somewhat boring and repetitive that every black superhero seemed to be either a super genius overcoming the ghetto life while all around him was awash in criminality or they themselves were criminals who became “heroes” i.e Luke Cage, Black Falcon etc. But still I rise. Now on to “Cloak and Dagger” ah what can I say, let me see. I liked it for the change of pace attitude from the normal super villian vs super hero duke em out but alot of things about it just didnt set right with me. Cloak (before becoming cloak) was contemplating robbing Dagger before he was beaten to the punch. Why again with the criminal/reformed to hero? Now on to their powers. NOt to get racial but genetically caucasians are not white per se they display a lack of pigment which can be interpreted as being white. Black people arent per se black but display an abundance of pigment. Why is this relevant at all? Because I feel Cloak and Dagger plays on racial stereotypes held by the patriarchal racist machine that powers everything in this world albeit on a subconcious level(for some). Pigment is the protection from light and heat, it powers the human body and spirit a lack of pigment is ….well, something opposite. WIthout getting too racial I will just say Cloak should have been the one emitting light daggers and Dagger should have been the one with the overwhelming fear of the darkness consuming her. Anyway, thats just my opinion. I get to Luke Cage, Rage and Snap Wilson later!

    Freddie Lee,

    Thank you for doing my job for me. There is always a supremacists bent on superheroes if you separate yourself from the fantasy and objectively examine the characters and their situations. This is because the writers are reflecting their programming and their upbringing. Without any interaction with Blacks previously, these writers fictionalize all Blacks (always used for lack of a greater term) as people mired in eternal poverty.

    One of my responsibilities to my community will be to highlight the stories presented by the writers and artists that envision Black heroes from outside the filters of supremacy. For starters, peep this writer/author who occasionally drops by DP Dot Com…

  14. *Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I?d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
