Tyrone Johnson is a mutant and current member of the Avengers.
Tyrone Johnson and his twin sister Tandy were born to Martha Johnson and Nathan Bowen. The twins were born mutants with uncanny darkness and light powers, respectively, that manifested at birth. In order to hide the powers of the children, they were constantly given the drug known as Banshee. After their parents had a messy divorce, their children were separated, with no recollection of each other.
Growing up was messy, as both were raised by single parents with little money. Tyrone in particular was constantly bullied because he stuttered. Soon he decided to run away, and in a New York City terminal, he found his twin Tandy, also a runaway. As the two got to talking, they realized they vaguely remembered each other. The one thing they remembered doing together was taking Banshee. So, they decided to steal some Banshee and relive old times. However, the extra dose of Banshee revived their mutant powers. They decided to use their powers to protect New York from the threat of drug-related crime and otherwise, as the vigilante partners Cloak and Dagger.
Cloak and Dagger were very successful vigilantes, making several drug busts and cooperating with the cops. But soon, the duo was approached by Spider-Man. He wanted to recruit them into the Avengers. Cloak and Dagger refused, insisting that they were needed on the streets. Sadly, Spider-Man left, considering retiring the Avengers. But they followed him back to his HQ, stating they had thought about it more, and they wanted to be Avengers. They suggested using an abandoned church for a headquarters that they had used as a base. After spiffying up the church, Cloak, Dagger, Spider-Man, and U.S.Agent became the official Avengers.
