SDCC 2018 WATCH: Cloak and Dagger Season 2 trailer and art drop: Mayhem is coming

July 21st, 2018 by Marc Comments

Freeform dropped the trailer and art for Cloak & Dagger season 2 at SDCC just tonight and it hints at a very cool new villain.

But one comic fans will be familiar with: Mayhem.

Who? Here’s the character’s description:

O’Reilly’s first comic appearance came in Cloak and Dagger #1 (1983) as she served as a police detective in Manhattan. Although she was killed by the end of the first volume, O’Reilly was reanimated — ah, comics — before she picked up the Mayhem name in Cloak and Dagger Vol. 2 #5.

Upon being reborn, O’Reilly picked up a unique batch of powers, including being able to secrete venomous gas from her pores. Using this to her advantage to dispatch of crime lords and drug dealers, Mayhem also grew talon-like fingernails so that she can scratch her victims and get the gas in the bloodstreams of her opponents. Mayhem’s gas can also dissipate Dagger’s knives upon contact and Mayhem has been seen to levitate and fly through her several appearances.

The video teasers includes some green coloring before being shredded by claws, seemingly confirming both Mayhem’s gas and talon powers.

Check the trailer out below and let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
