Synopsis for "Cloak and Dagger!"

While out on patrol, Spider-Man is drawn to the screams of a man running for his life. It turns out to be a criminal drug experimenter who is being chased by two new costumed vigilantes: Cloak and Dagger. When Spider-Man tries to stop them from killing the drug dealer, Spider-Man becomes a victim of Dagger's light daggers. When they kill the drug dealer they leave Spider-Man behind to deal with the police. In spite of the fact that he's staggered by Dagger's attack, he manages to get away from the police.

As Peter Parker, Spidey tries to learn what he can about Cloak and Dagger through his connections at the Bugle, however, they come up dry. Searching for Cloak and Dagger as Spider-Man, Peter traces them to their hide-out. There Cloak and Dagger have gathered a number of people responsible for their condition. They reveal that they were young runaways that were injected with experimental drugs which activated their powers.

When Spider-Man tries to stop them from killing the drug dealers in cold blood, Spider-Man fails when Cloak's darkness makes them all run out of a window and plummet to their deaths. When Spider-Man finally confronts Cloak and Dagger, they teleport away telling him that their job is done... for now.
