ABC and Marvel recently made a big splash in the news by announcing that they were going to be bringing back one classic Marvel superhero TV series, The Incredible Hulk, and starting an all-new one, Cloak & Dagger. Based on a comic book about two teens who were given an overdose of synthetic drugs that activated their mutant superpowers, the characters Cloak and Dagger have been around since 1982 but have faded in and out of the spotlight since then. And while the new Hulk series has five decades of comics, two feature films and a beloved TV show to draw inspiration from, we're worried that the lesser-known C&D might suffer from their new home on ABC Family. As longtime fans of the characters, here are some tips for what to do and what not to do with them.
If you, like everyone else in the whole wide world, were disappointed by the last big screen installment of the Hulk, and are gun shy about seeing the new Incredible Hulk movie that comes out this week, well I've got just the thing for you. Firstly, our own Zach Oat promises that the new flick is not only better than the last one (I mean, it would have been tough for it to be worse). Secondly, if you are just being frugal with your money until you hear what your friends thing or until it eventually ends up on DVD, recall the good old days of the Hulk without ever leaving the comfort of your couch. Through the magic of the internet, the pilot of The Incredible Hulk series is available below for your viewing pleasure. Though a bit on the dated side (especially with the effects), seeing this again and remembering why I used to adore the combo of Bruce Bixby and Lou Ferrigno makes me even more grateful that watching videos actually counts as work for me.
