'Agents of SHIELD: Slingshot' is a Marvel-ous online spin-off

"Yo-Yo" Rodriguez faces off against the cast of the hit show in a series of online mini-episodes starting next week.

Natalia Cordova-Buckley is Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez AKA Slingshot.

A spin-off from "Agents of SHIELD" is shooting onto the Web. "Slingshot" will debut as online mini-episodes featuring several characters from ABC's show based on Marvel comics.

Natalia Cordova-Buckley takes the lead as Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez, a super-speedy Inhuman who comes into conflict with SHIELD in the spin-off. It's set shortly before the beginning of series four of "Agents of SHIELD", which just finished airing. Daisy Johnson and Agents Coulson, Mack, May, Fitz and Simmons will cross over from the main show to make appearances.

Each episode will be between 3 and 6 minutes long and will appear on ABC.go.com, Marvel.com and ABC's mobile app. The series launches on 13 December.

"Slingshot" will be the first spin-off from "Agents of SHIELD" after broadcaster ABC opted not to go ahead with a long-mooted spin-off called "Marvel's Most Wanted". ABC has however said yes to a show about the Inhumans, a race of superbeings that have already appeared in "SHIELD". The show will debut in September 2017 in Imax movie theatres and on TV.

Yo-Yo Rodriguez first appeared in comics in 2008, created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev.
