ABC’s Marvel series, Agents of SHIELD, is currently on holiday hiatus. In the midseason finale, we learned that there’s been more than one Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) has dealt with them before. We learned that AIDA (Mallory Jansen) created an LMD of Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen).

The series won’t be back until early in 2017. However, until then, we’ve got this six-part web-series starring Natalia Cordova-Buckley in her role as the Inhuman, Yo-Yo Rodriguez, a.k.a. Slingshot. Her power is that she can run super fast within the span of one of her heartbeats before immediately re-appearing exactly where she started.

Hence, Yo-Yo.


Each episode averages around 4 minutes and features a main cast member in each episode and sees Yo-Yo dealing with the fall out of Captain America: Civil War. More specifically, the Sokovia Accords. Not only that, but Chief Creative Officer at Marvel Entertainment, Joe Quesada, directed the first episode. This marks his directorial debut. Before that, he was Editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, which is also a very cool job.

You can read the series synopsis below and then watch the entire series in 30 minutes. It’s a perfect lunch date for any Marvel fan.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot takes place shortly before the beginning of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4. The digital series features Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, an Inhuman with the ability to move at super-speed. As a person with powers, she must sign the Sokovia Accords. However, the restrictions of the Accords are in direct conflict with a personal mission she’s desperate to fulfill, one that will test her abilities and will include tense encounters with S.H.I.E.L.D. team members.
