"I made hard choices before. Being right doesn't stop it from feeling wrong."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Agent Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez, also known as Slingshot, is a Colombian Inhuman and one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most decorated and skilled operatives. Rodriguez underwent Terrigenesis during the Inhuman Outbreak, gaining the power to move at super-speed with the condition that she always returned to her starting space. Believing her power to be a gift from God, Rodriguez used her new gift to fight corruption within the Colombian political system, including the National Police of Colombia. This briefly put her into a conflict with S.H.I.E.L.D., but as they saw that Rodriguez was using her powers for good, they recruited her into the Secret Warriors. Seeking to use her gifts to protect the world, Rodriguez assisted in the battle against Hive and his army of brainwashed Inhumans, during which she was nearly killed while saving Alphonso Mackenzie from the Primitives.

Agreeing to sign the Sokovia Accords, Rodriguez immediately went behind new S.H.I.E.L.D. director Jeffrey Mace's back in order to seek out Victor Ramon, who had killed her cousin. Rodriguez found Ramon and stopped his weapons sale to the Watchdogs with the aid of Quake, whom she then agreed to assist in her own vigilante missions. Returning to S.H.I.E.L.D., Rodriguez assisted in the defeat of Eli Morrow with her teammates and started a relationship with Alphonso Mackenzie. Later, she joined the fight against Aida, her LMDs, as well as the Watchdogs and entered the Framework to convince Mackenzie, who stayed there, to leave before it was deleted, eventually succeeding.

Soon after, Rodriguez and the rest of the team were sent to the year 2091 where Earth had been destroyed and the human survivors lived in the Lighthouse under Kree rule. She and Mackenzie decided to stay in the station with Flint to help the people to stand against the Kree, while the rest of the team left to find a way back to the present. Before she returned to Earth, Rodriguez encountered a future version of herself who warned her about the events which would cause the apocalypse.

While attempting to avert the destruction of Earth in the present, only to walk into a trap set by Hale, Rodriguez lost both of her arms trying to save Mackenzie but later won cybernetic arms to replace her missing limbs. Rodriguez ultimately warned her colleagues about what her future self had told her: that trying to save Phil Coulson could result in the Destruction of Earth. This put her at odds with some of her teammates, notably Daisy Johnson, who refused to let Coulson die. However, Rodriguez's warning was eventually heeded by Coulson himself, leading to a S.H.I.E.L.D. victory over Glenn Talbot. Rodriguez then remained with her S.H.I.E.L.D. teammates for new missions under Mackenzie's directorship.

Mackenzie's new status initially went incompatible with his relationship with Rodriguez, and eventually, Rodriguez began dating S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Damon Keller, although this relationship ended as well due to Keller being infected by a Shrike, forcing Rodriguez to give him a merciful death. Rodriguez joined S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts against Sarge's Squad and the threat of Izel, and succeeded in winning Jaco to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s cause. In the aftermath of an apparent S.H.I.E.L.D. victory, Rodriguez and Mackenzie were back together, but they soon realized that Izel had survived. Rodriguez was possessed and captured by Izel, and held prisoner at the Temple of the Forgotten. She and Mackenzie managed to escape, but Rodriguez was in turn infected by a Shrike and nearly died from it; however, she was saved when May killed Izel, thus exterminating all the Shrike.

Rodriguez and her S.H.I.E.L.D. team were brought onto the Zephyr, where they were informed that the alien Chronicoms were planning on using time travel to rewrite history and erase S.H.I.E.L.D. from existence. Rodriguez and the team travelled through the decades fighting the Chronicoms, however Rodriguez would soon discover that her Inhuman powers had vanished. When they travelled to 1983, Rodriguez sought the help of Jiaying, an Inhuman leader and Daisy's mother, in the hope that she could restore her powers. Rodriguez would discover that her powers had vanished due to the combined trauma of her Shrike infection and the death of her uncle in her youth. With Jiaying's help, Rodriguez would unlock her Inhuman powers once more, as well as realizing that the caveat that she must always bounce back to her starting location was subconscious programming, caused by a similar event leading to her uncle's death. Now realizing the full potential of her abilities, Rodriguez would be pivotal in helping S.H.I.E.L.D. defeat the Chronicom threat and save the timeline. Following this, she would join the new STRIKE team as part of the newly-rebuilt S.H.I.E.L.D. under Alphonso Mackenzie's leadership.


Early Life

Losing her Uncle

This section requires expansion

To be added


"I had told myself this was just a dream. And then my cousin Francisco calls with bad news about his mom. I was upset, so I went to get a beer, and... whoosh! I'm back on my couch, beer in one hand. I realize I need a bottle opener, and whoosh again... I'm back on my couch, bottle opener in the other hand."
"What did you think was happening?"
"My heart was beating so fast, I thought someone had put cocaine in my beer."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Flint[src]

Elena Rodriguez was raised in Potosí, Colombia.[16] As a young woman, she lived in Bogotá with her cousin, Francisco Rodriguez and working at a clerical job in a museum, while also teaching art classes at nights. During the Inhuman Outbreak, Rodriguez went through Terrigenesis due to ingesting fish soup that was tainted by the Terrigen Mist. She gained the power to move at superhuman speeds for the length of a single heartbeat, before snapping back to her original place. Due to Rodriguez's deep faith; she came to the conclusion that her powers were a gift from God to stop corruption and help her people.[1]

Stealing Weapons

Conflict with Victor Ramon

Rodriguez steals guns from the police

"Las armas que robaste, ¿para qué las vas a utilizar?"[17]
"¡No vamos a usarlas! ¡Estamos asegurándonos de que nadie las use![18]"
Joey Gutierrez and Elena Rodriguez[src]

Seeking to do good with her new Inhuman powers, Rodriguez went against Victor Ramon and his team of corrupt National Police of Colombia officers. While Ramon's team was transporting a cargo of guns across the city, Rodriguez used her incredible speed to steal the weapons from the officers before they could stop her. She then took the weapons to Francisco who hid them in their apartment ready to be transported out of the city and disposed of with, ensuring the police could not harm any innocent person with them.[1]

Encounter with S.H.I.E.L.D.

Rodriguez disarms Alphonso Mackenzie

"¿Eres EE.UU. Militar? Yo sé que no estás con la policía local."[19]
"Policía? Yeah, you stole pistolas from the policía, and sold the pistolas to your amigos, criminals."
―Elena Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

With the weapons safely hidden away, Rodriguez went to check on the investigation at the crime scene, which was being conducted by S.H.I.E.L.D.. Despite her efforts to blend in, Rodriguez was spotted by Alphonso Mackenzie who noticed that the tips of her shoes had been scratched off during the raid. Rodriguez used her speed to steal Mackenzie's gun before throwing him in the back of a van and driving away with him unconscious.

Rodriguez threatens Alphonso Mackenzie

Rodriguez took Mackenzie back to her apartment where she tied him up in the bathroom while she continued speaking to Francisco Rodriguez and sorted through the guns. When Mackenzie awoke, Rodriguez darted to the door and closed it. Once Francisco had left, Rodriguez went to question Mackenzie, who attempted to escape, however, Rodriguez was able to use her powers to trap and disarm him before pulling a gun and ordering him to surrender while Mackenzie observed how her powers worked.

Rodriguez questions Alphonso Mackenzie

Once Rodriguez had tied Mackenzie to a chair, she questioned him about whether he was part of the military but Mackenzie accused her of being a criminal. Rodriguez insisted that she was not a criminal as she believed her powers were a gift from God, which Mackenzie seemed to understand noting that her powers came from tainted fish, which had made her undergo Terrigenesis. As they were talking the whole room began to shake as Daisy Johnson arrived and assisted in capturing Rodriguez.[1]

Captured and Questioned

Rodriguez inside the Containment Module

"Sabemos lo que llamamos la policía aquí? Los ladrones uniformados. Ellos sólo son poderosos porque tienen armas, ahora tengo el poder real para proteger a mis amigos de ser detenidos, muertos en las calles![20]"
―Elena Rodriguez to Daisy Johnson[src]

The unconscious Rodriguez was then arrested and taken onboard Zephyr One and locked inside the Containment Module to await questioning about her various crimes against the police. While she slept the S.H.I.E.L.D. team went through her belongings and attempted to work out why she had turned to crime as they profiled her and her cousin. Eventually, Rodriguez awoke and began furiously slamming on the walls at super-speed in order to get her kidnappers attention while she also furiously banged on the glass.

Rodriguez is questioned by Joey Gutierrez

Rodriguez was questioned by Joey Gutierrez, who spoke in Spanish to translate for the rest of the team. Gutierrez asked why she had stolen the guns and what she planned on using them for, but Rodriguez insisted that her plan was to ensure that nobody used the guns. When Daisy Johnson noted that it was the police who had the guns, Rodriguez explained that the police were corrupt in Bogotá and she was fighting to protect her friends, this was confirmed when Bobbi Morse captured Francisco as he threw away the guns.

Rodriguez learns her cousin has been killed

While still locked in her cell, Rodriguez continued to ask about her cousin's safety until Mackenzie freed her and showed her that her cousin had been murdered by Victor Ramon. Once she had been given some time, Gutierrez translated as Mackenzie told Rodriguez like her he relied on his faith and maybe her gifts were from God. He told her that they needed to use these gifts for good and she agreed to join their team to save their teammates. She then explained to the group how her powers worked in detail.[1]

Rescue in the Police Station

Rodriguez robs the police at super-speed

"Las cosas son diferentes ahora, eres una Inhumana."[21]
"También soy de Colombia, y una administradora de oficina y una hija y una prima. Tengo que llevar a casa a mi primo, tengo que decirle a mi tía por qué murió.[22]"
Joey Gutierrez and Elena Rodriguez[src]

Agreeing to help the team, Rodriguez used her incredible speed to steal a keycard from a police officer, greatly impressing Daisy Johnson who called her her new best friend. Alphonso Mackenzie briefed the team on the whereabouts of their team-mates as well as the movements of the corrupt police officers. Mackenzie supplied Rodriguez with Overpowering Tape to subdue the police without harming them.

Rodriguez is paralyzed from Lucio's abilities

As the team charged through the station, Rodriguez stayed behind Johnson, disarming any police she came across before Johnson used her shockwaves to defeat them, Rodriguez disarmed and tied up six police in one go before Johnson could even blink. Eventually, Mackenzie saved Bobbi Morse and warned the group that the Inhuman's power was in his eyes. Rodriguez, however, did not translate and tried to attack Lucio, who used his powers to paralyze her and launch her body against the wall at full speed.

Rodriguez preparing to return to Colombia

Rodriguez recovered and witnessed HYDRA using the Extraction Claw to kidnap Lucio before the team could do anything. Back on Zephyr One Gutierrez tried to convince Rodriguez to join S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Secret Warriors so she could learn to master her powers and do good with them, however, Rodriguez insisted that she had to stay in Colombia to live her life and explain why her cousin had died. Rodriguez was allowed to go and Mackenzie gave her a watch she could use to contact them if she ever needed help.[1]

Secret Warriors

Retaking of Zephyr One

Rodriguez is contacted by S.H.I.E.L.D.

"Elevator door opens, he comes out, bullets boom, boom, boom, and the soldiers. This is the man."
"Hey, I just stopped the bullets but you dropped them down."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Joey Gutierrez[src]

While still in Bogotá, Rodriguez waited for her bus to arrive while practicing English to be ready for her next conversation with Alphonso Mackenzie. However just as Rodriguez prepared to board the bus, she was contacted by S.H.I.E.L.D., informing her that there was a Secret Warriors mission which needed her assistance. Apologizing to the bus driver, Rodriguez stepped out onto the streets and looked up as she began searching for the incoming S.H.I.E.L.D. pickup.

Rodriguez joins a Secret Warriors mission

Once onboard a Quinjet with the rest of the team, Rodriguez was informed that HYDRA had hijacked Zephyr One and taken the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. team onboard hostage within their secret base at the Schoonebeek Oil Field. When Rodriguez asked about the intel they had regarding how the plane was taken and how many guards they would be going against, Daisy Johnson explained that they basically knew nothing about what to expect during the mission but insisted that they rescue their team. Having agreed to the mission, Rodriguez and the Secret Warriors jumped from the Quinjet and made their way inside the HYDRA base to search for their allies.

Rodriguez quickly subduing HYDRA guards

Inside the base, Johnson destroyed the concrete walls and ordered Rodriguez and Joey Gutierrez to go to the elevator and find the rest of the team. On the way down, Rodriguez teased Gutierrez about running off from his own date with Kevin to join them on the mission. Speaking to each other in Spanish they discussed how many guards to expect before the doors opened and they encountered six. While Gutierrez melted their bullets, Rodriguez used Overpowering Tape to subdue them before they continued their search, noting that Gutierrez had made the correct prediction about how many HYDRA guards they should have expected within the hallway.

Rodriguez witnesses R. Giyera's attack

Making their way onto Zephyr One with Gideon Malick, who had been captured by Lincoln Campbell, Rodriguez witnessed Gutierrez being knocked to the ground from a wrench thrown at him by R. Giyera. However before Rodriguez even had a chance to defend her friend, Johnson appeared and used a shockwave to launch Giyera across the hanger. Having established that Gutierrez was okay, Rodriguez left him with the rest of the team while she and Johnson continued the search for the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team so they could make their hasty escape from the base.

Rodriguez helps save Alphonso Mackenzie

While Campbell and Gutierrez dealt with Lucio who was attempting to stop them and rescue Malick, Rodriguez used her Inhuman speed to use the Overpowering Tape to once again subdue the guards attempting to kill her S.H.I.E.L.D. allies before greeting Mackenzie, who was hiding out with Phil Coulson and the others. Rodriguez used the English she had been practicing to speak to Mackenzie before Melinda May got to her feet despite painful wounds and flew Zephyr One out of the HYDRA base and took them all back to safety before Hive could return and fight them all.

Rodriguez recalls the details of their battle

Back at the Playground, Rodriguez had joined the rest of the Secret Warriors in the changing room where they discussed and joked about the successful mission. The team listened as Rodriguez excitedly retold the story of how Gutierrez had melted the HYDRA operatives' bullets although he insisted she deserved more of the credit as she had used her speed to knock them all down. As they were talking, Johnson noticed that Rodriguez had in fact been grazed by a bullet in the leg, which she claimed to have not even felt due to the adrenaline of the mission.

Rodriguez tries teasing Alphonso Mackenzie

Speaking to Alphonso Mackenzie, Rodriguez was told the long history of S.H.I.E.L.D., including how it had once been known as the Strategic Scientific Reserve after World War II. Rodriguez noted that the team had gotten into the habit of calling her Yo-Yo which she blamed on Mackenzie while also telling him that his Spanish had to improve. Mackenzie went on to explain to Rodriguez that S.H.I.E.L.D.'s goal was always to protect and not kill, although this was not always possible, with Rodriguez noting that she trusted him and S.H.I.E.L.D. to do the right thing.[23]

Under Suspicion

Rodriguez confronts Daisy Johnson

"Son cerdos del gobierno. Nosotros confiamos en ellos, y se volvieron contra nosotros."[24]
"Screw S.H.I.E.L.D."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Daisy Johnson[src]

While still talking with him, Rodriguez then witnessed Phil Coulson informing Alphonso Mackenzie that he needed him to lock down the Playground for unknown reasons. Rodriguez later confronted Daisy Johnson about this. Although Johnson argued that it was a security matter as Gideon Malick was still there, Rodriguez insisted that she wanted to be allowed to go home free before angrily storming off.

Rodriguez becomes a target of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Suddenly the lights throughout the base were cut and an explosion was heard. When Rodriguez tried to learn from Mackenzie what was happening, she found herself being surrounded by armed S.H.I.E.L.D. agents including Melinda May. Coulson explained that Hive could control Inhumans and therefore he suspected that a member of the Secret Warriors was under his control. As tensions rose Rodriguez stole May's gun while Lincoln Campbell confronted Coulson before the Secret Warriors ran into the other room for their own safety before they all could be captured.

Rodriguez discusses who is Hive's slave

Joey Gutierrez joined them and with Rodriguez's help they secured the doors before discussing their next move and S.H.I.E.L.D. would still be after them. Rodriguez expressed her disgust at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s treatment of them while Gutierrez remained horrified at such an accusation. Rodriguez was questioned over her wound but denied all knowledge. Eventually, Johnson convinced the team not to fight each other but to instead find their own way out of the base and then figure out the situation themselves, away from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who wanted to contain them without any questioning.

Rodriguez accuses Lincoln Campbell

However, Johnson instead led Rodriguez to the Containment Module where Phil Coulson was waiting for them, claiming he had discovered who was the infected Inhuman who had been working as Hive's slave. Coulson claimed that Campbell was the one to blame as he had discovered the Kree Orb within Campbell's locker. Campbell denied all involvement but the team remained highly skeptical as Coulson noted he had stolen the Terrigen Crystals from the same room before and that he had encountered Hive while at the Transia Corporation Headquarters while completely on his own.

Rodriguez sees Lincoln Campbell's capture

As the evidence piled up against Campbell, Rodriguez tried to use the Overpowering Tape to subdue her former ally, then leading to Campbell ordering her to leave him alone as he insisted he was innocent. However Rodriguez ignored Campbell's demands but when she ran at Campbell he consumed his power with electricity, causing her to be shocked and sent flying backwards, knocking her unconscious. While she was out though, Campbell was subdued by the combined efforts of Gutierrez and Johnson and locked in the Containment Module for questioning later on.

Rodriguez decides to leave S.H.I.E.L.D.

With Campbell now locked up and the trust within the team destroyed, Rodriguez gave blood samples to Jemma Simmons before demanding that she be allowed to walk away from S.H.I.E.L.D. On her way out, being escorted by Melinda May and a team of agents, Rodriguez encountered Mackenzie who tried to reason with her by using the nickname of Yo-Yo, but Rodriguez did not even look at him and instead insisted that her true name was Elena before walking out of the Playground and away from the Secret Warriors seemingly for good.[23]

Return to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Rodriguez shows Glenn Talbot her powers

"Put me on your list, there will be a price on my head."
"Nobody would ever find out about it."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Glenn Talbot[src]

Rodriguez was eventually convinced to return to S.H.I.E.L.D. upon learning that Daisy Johnson was the real slave to Hive and manipulated the Secret Warriors into disbanding. Once Rodriguez arrived back at the Playground, she was greeted by Phil Coulson and Glenn Talbot who wanted her to sign the Sokovia Accords. Upon Coulson's request, Rodriguez demonstrated her own super-speed powers by stealing Talbot's medals from his uniform, much to the General's great surprise.

Rodriguez and Mackenzie discuss Hive

Walking through the Playground, Rodriguez soon found Alphonso Mackenzie who she noted was clearly not happy to see her there, noting that while she was there to fight, he believed that they could not defeat Hive. Seeing Mackenzie was in pain, Rodriguez was informed that he had been attacked by Johnson, who only served Hive now and he did not want Rodriguez to fall under Hive's sway as well. As Mackenzie explained that Hive's current plan was pure evil, Rodriguez gave him a beer and reminded him to keep his faith to help them get through this and find a way to stop Hive.

Rodriguez learns Lincoln Campbell escaped

During her time on the base, the alarms were triggered due to Lincoln Campbell seemingly making a desperate attempt to escape the base and reunite with Johnson in order to try and save her. Rodriguez came out to investigate with Melinda May and they were briefed on the situation by Coulson and Talbot. Fearing that Campbell may be attempting to find another way to get onto a Quinjet, May ordered Rodriguez to join her in investigating a secret escape within the base. During the ensuing skirmish against Mackenzie, Campbell knocked him down and seemingly escaped onboard the Quinjet.

Rodriguez is informed of Lash fighting Hive

However it was then revealed that Campbell had never left the base, and in fact, he had been replaced with Lash, who was being sent to fight and kill Hive. As Campbell explained to the team that they had come up with the plan to fool Johnson into bringing Lash to Hive, they had to keep it a secret from everybody, with Rodriguez noting that he should have tried to avoid hurting Mackenzie in the resulting fight. While they discussed the plan, Lash failed to destroy Hive although he did rescue Johnson from Hive's control and ensured she made it back to the Playground, being killed by Hellfire in the process.

Rodriguez tells Mackenzie to keep the faith

While Johnson received medical treatment due to having her Kree blood taken by Hive and Holden Radcliffe, Rodriguez and Mackenzie discussed keeping faith that she would recover. Rodriguez later visited Mackenzie in his bedroom where she found his designs for a new motorcycle, asking if he saw a future now or a fast way out. They continued to discuss if they could really defeat Hive, and Mackenzie told her that although he was not sure he would still fight. Rodriguez then handed Mackenzie her crucifix necklace and told him to keep the faith before quietly walking outside.[26]

Trapping Hive

Rodriguez prepares for her newest mission

"Look at all these people."
"Yeah, good thing we brought the really small plane to carry all of them."
Lincoln Campbell and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Rodriguez decided to go with Melinda May, Alphonso Mackenzie and Lincoln Campbell to attempt to stop Hive from launching a warhead. While May flew the Quinjet under the water to avoid being spotted on the radar scanners, Rodriguez opted to wear the Nanothermite Vest along with Campbell in case Hive was able to gain control of their minds. As Mackenzie was being handed the detonators by Campbell, Rodriguez nodded at him to signify her approval at the decision if it came to it.

Rodriguez speaks with Alphonso Mackenzie

Once the team arrived at the facility, they split up, with Campbell and May going to find an upload link while Rodriguez and Mackenzie set up a version of the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine in one of the hallways. Rodriguez commented on Mackenzie's slow speed as he rebuilt the machine, and Mackenzie replied that not everybody had super speed. Mackenzie tried to return Rodriguez's necklace, but she was insulted, as it was not a gift that should be given back. When Mackenzie questioned Rodriguez about wearing the vest, she told him she would rather be dead than controlled by Hive.

Rodriguez watches Hive as he suffers pain

Just as they were completing the machine, Phil Coulson and Leo Fitz, with the help of Brigadier General Glenn Talbot managed to stop the warhead's launch, and Campbell baited Hive into the hallway. Mackenzie, however, warned that he did not have enough time to finish the memory machine, so Rodriguez used her powers to finish the Machine. Campbell used his powers to activate the Machine, bringing the memories of every host, like Grant Ward, Will Daniels and Nathaniel Malick, Hive ever inhabited to the surface. With Hive incapacitated, Rodriguez went to free the hostages.

Rodriguez prepares to rescue the hostages

Getting into position outside the room where Hive's hostages were being guarded, Rodriguez updated Mackenzie who ordered her to hurry. Amused that the man she had mocked earlier for being too slow was now telling her to speed up, Rodriguez said in Spanish that it was fortunate that he was a handsome man. Rodriguez charged into the room and knocked out the Primitives guarding the men, who included Graham and ordered them to follow her outside to safety. A short time later, the agents left the building, with Rodriguez leading all of the freed hostages outside to regroup with them.

Rodriguez smiles as Hive is finally captured

As the four of them began to follow the hostages to the Quinjet, with May also bringing Holden Radcliffe to join them, Hive reappeared and ordered them all to stop. Furious, Hive demanded to know what they had done to him, with Campbell answering that they had done the only thing they could think of. Hive began to channel his powers, but Rodriguez immediately used her speed to place a summoning device under him. Hive, confused, looked up only to be trapped in a glass cage filled with Suspension Gel, trapping him and allowing the team to bring him to Zephyr One to be locked away.[27]

Attack of the Primitives

"What happened?"
"Mack lit me on fire."
Jemma Simmons and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

With Hive seemingly locked up for good, Rodriguez relaxed in the Playground until she was alerted that a Terrigen Mist bomb had been activated, turning O'Brien and several other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents into mindless Primitives. As they watched the Primitives attempting to free Hive from the Suspension Gel, Rodriguez insisted that they save the other agents, only for Phil Coulson to inform her that they were already dead.[27]

Rodriguez saves Alphonso Mackenzie's life

Having learned that Daisy Johnson had escaped the Containment Module and was now battling Hive, Rodriguez joined the rest of the team as they discussed the Primitives with Holden Radcliffe. As the Primitives were making their way through the base, Rodriguez joined Alphonso Mackenzie in securing the armory. Just as they arrived, however, a Primitive appeared and fired at Mackenzie, only for Rodriguez to run in front of him and used her own body to protect him from the bullets. As Rodriguez then fell to the floor, Mackenzie ran over and caught her before she could hit the floor.

Rodriguez's gunshot wound is burned

As Mackenzie carried Rodriguez throughout the Playground, they soon regrouped with Coulson, Lincoln Campbell and Radcliffe, locking themselves in a workshop to hide from the Primitives. Using the limited resources they had, Campbell desperately tried to save Rodriguez, noting that she was bleeding too fast and therefore they had to seal the wound somehow. Radcliffe suggested that they use a blowtorch to seal the wound, and with no other choice, they agreed, with Rodriguez insisting Mackenzie would be the one to do it as she screamed in horrific agony as her skin was burned.

Rodriguez is helped by Alphonso Mackenzie

Seeing the heat had gone up, Radcliffe realized Jemma Simmons was using heat to blind all of the Primitives, allowing them to make their way towards Coulson's office without being seen. Once there they regrouped with Simmons who informed them that Melinda May and Leo Fitz had made their way onto Zephyr One to challenge Hive. As Rodriguez was still suffering from the agony of her own wound, Coulson called in a Quinjet to take her to a hospital. While Rodriguez recovered, Coulson's team destroyed Hive, but Campbell was killed in the process, while also saving millions of lives.[28]

New Director

Signing the Sokovia Accords

Rodriguez fails to search for Victor Ramon

"You did read the Accords before you signed them, right?"
"Of course."
"So you know that if you break the agreement, the law states I have to turn you over to Secretary Ross, and he won't hesitate to detain you on the Raft for the foreseeable future."
Jeffrey Mace and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

In the wake of the defeat of Hive, Rodriguez decided to stay on as a S.H.I.E.L.D. Inhuman asset following a trip home to Columbia, requiring her to sign the Sokovia Accords. As she waited for her meeting with Jeffrey Mace, she attempted to run a facial recognition search on Victor Ramon who murdered her cousin Francisco, as she had received information leading her to believe he was coming to the United States. Rodriguez quickly figured out that she did not have the proper clearance to run the search, and was interrupted by Phil Coulson who was bringing his belongings from the director's office to Zephyr One.

Rodriguez chats with Phil Coulson

Rodriguez saw that Coulson was holding the axe that Alphonso Mackenzie used to save him, and asked him why he still keeps it. He replied that it was his good luck charm, and they talked about the new director, the disbanding of the Secret Warriors, and the Sokovia Accords. Rodriguez was still unsure whether she wanted to sign the Accords, as she would like her freedom. Coulson gave her Peggy Carter's S.H.I.E.L.D. pin from the formation of the organization, and reminded her that she was not just giving something up, but she's also gaining a team. The conversation moved onto the team, and Rodriguez was hopeful that Coulson and Mackenzie would find Daisy Johnson.[29]

Rodriguez signs the Sokovia Accords

Rodriguez entered the director's office and saw photos and news articles about herself projected on the wall. Mace entered the office, and after an awkward introduction, he asked her to sign the Accords. Rodriguez asked what would happen if she were not to sign, and Mace reminded her it was a chance to do some good. She signed the Accords and then asked Mace to look into Ramon, to which he responded that she needs to submit a detailed threat assessment. Rodriguez then left the office to have her physical assessment completed, but not before using her powers to steal Mace's badge.[30]

Rodriguez speaks with Leo Fitz

At the lab, she used the stolen badge to run the facial recognition search while Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons upgraded her watch and did her physical assessment. Rodriguez managed to distract them long enough to complete her search without detection, determining that Ramon was in Baltimore. On her way out of the base, she ran into Mackenzie, who told her how they were trying to track Quake. They flirted a little bit, then she gave him a kiss on the cheek and watched him board Zephyr One and leave the base. As the Zephyr disappeared from sight, Melinda May appeared behind Rodriguez suspecting that she took the director's badge.[31]

Rodriguez is confronted by Melinda May

May took Rodriguez to the Quinjet and scolded her for stealing the director's badge, mentioning how she makes a terrible spy. Rodriguez tried to deny taking the badge, but May revealed that she knows everything that she had been up to, including the facial recognition search. Rodriguez gave up and handed May the badge, with the latter telling her to be less sloppy next time.

Rodriguez is helped by Melinda May

Rodriguez secured herself in the Quinjet, believing that the pilot was taking her to her assignment in Los Angeles. The pilot told her the flight would only be twenty minutes, leaving her confused as it should take a few hours to get to Los Angeles. Rodriguez asked the pilot why the flight was so short, and he revealed that they were actually going to Baltimore. She realized that May told the pilot where to go, and they gave each other a smile as the Quinjet door closed.[32]

Hunting Victor Ramon

Rodriguez threatening Victor Ramon

"What you did was murder. This is justice."
"Justice? You can call this justice if it makes you feel better."
"I will feel better after I pull this trigger."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Victor Ramon[src]

Rodriguez arrived in Baltimore and quickly tracked down Victor Ramon, threatening him with a gun, angry about how police corruption caused the death of her cousin. In the middle of their conversation, Rodriguez got taken out by one of Ramon's men.[32]

Rodriguez is almost killed by Victor Ramon

Rodriguez woke up to find herself tied up in a chair, in the middle of an arms deal between Ramon and the Watchdogs. Ramon wanted to show the Watchdogs the power of the weapon he was selling by using it on Rodriguez. He removed the weapon from its container, revealing the weapon as a 0-8-4 and powered it up. Right before he could fire the weapon at Rodriguez, an earthquake hit the building. Ramon told one of his men to investigate, and they barely made it out the door before they get blasted back in by Quake, who used her powers to send Ramon flying, who dropped the weapon and runoff. Quake freed Rodriguez and held off the remaining Watchdogs as Rodriguez chased Ramon.

Rodriguez witnesses Victor Ramon's death

She eventually caught up to him, and threatened to kill him, because she wanted him dead, not alive in prison.[33] Eventually, she realized she was no better than him if she kills him and lowered her weapon. A Watchdog walked up behind her and fired the weapon, but Rodriguez used her powers to dodge the blast and disarm the man and then watched as the blast hit Ramon and incinerated him. Rodriguez and Quake heard a Quinjet approaching, determining that S.H.I.E.L.D. was also tracking the weapon. Rodriguez offered to help Quake on her mission, but she turned Rodriguez down, stating that having one Inhuman fugitive was already enough. Quake told Rodriguez that she would let Rodriguez know if she ever needs Rodriguez's help, and the two parted ways.[2]

Search for Daisy Johnson

Rodriguez being signed in by James Davis

"Can't get these over the counter, S.H.I.E.L.D. issue for rapid bone healing yes? I know you splintered your bones when you first powered up, you're pushing yourself too hard."
"Don't worry about me."
"You can't use your powers too much. Your body will break down."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Quake[src]

Shortly after the Baltimore incident, Rodriguez arrived in Los Angeles for a short time. While she was there, she noticed some new seismic activity which she assumed was the work of Quake. Rodriguez was then soon summoned by S.H.I.E.L.D. for her routine Inhuman checkup and upon arriving at the Zephyr One where she was greeted by James Davis who signed her in while they discussed his pregnant wife, joking when Davis did not comment on how beautiful she was.

Rodriguez flirts with Alphonso Mackenzie

Once signed in, Rodriguez soon found Alphonso Mackenzie who awkwardly began her checkup by asking her about her upcoming trip to Miami. Rodriguez made the interview difficult as she flirted heavily with Mackenzie and even grabbed his crotch, despite knowing that they cannot fraternize with each other because of newly placed rules based on the Accords. Mackenzie soon revealed that the real reason why he and Phil Coulson were in Los Angeles was to hopefully find Daisy Johnson, prompting Rodriguez to search for Johnson to give her a warning of their search.

Rodriguez meeting discreetly with Quake

Once making contact with Johnson, Rodriguez had gotten on board a bus to meet her discreetly and supply her with Rapid Bone-Healing Pills which she had stolen from S.H.I.E.L.D. by using her own super-speed. Rodriguez noted that Johnson's bones now could not handle overuse of her Inhuman powers, reminding her of how they shattered during an early mission. Johnson ignored the warnings so they then discussed the Watchdogs working with the Chinatown Crew and that Johnson was tracking a serial killer. Before they departed, Rodriguez reminded Johnson that Coulson would not give up.

Rodriguez is sent an image of Ghost Rider

Having already offered to assist Johnson however she could in her vigilante missions, despite being rejected, Rodriguez eventually did hear from Johnson. Looking down at her phone, Rodriguez saw that Johnson had sent her a picture of the seeming serial killer who she had been tracking, showing a graffiti image of the Ghost Rider, a local legend within Los Angeles who had been hunting down crime organizations such as the Fifth Street Locos and Chinatown Crew. Rodriguez, however, kept her promise to Johnson and kept all of this secret from S.H.I.E.L.D. and Mackenzie.[34]

Blackout in Miami

Rodriguez spends time with her old friends

"Maria, it's still me. I'm still the same.
"No, you're one of them."
"Yes, but I'm still Elena, your friend."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Maria[src]

Rodriguez took a vacation in Miami where she spent time with her friends Maria and Leticia, attending a party on a rooftop where they watched The Amazing Mertz's new magic tricks. During this time Rodriguez was mocked for her refusal to wear a dress to the party despite having to wear one to the upcoming wedding. Rodriguez was then contacted by Alphonso Mackenzie, but she decided to ignore the call. During the party, they were interrupted by multiple EMP devices being activated in major cities around the United States of America and blaming it on the Inhumans using their powers to spread fear across the world.

Rodriguez is confronted by the Watchdogs

The true danger of the attack became clear when a helicopter which had been effected, fell from the sky and crashed into a nearby building, exploding in a massive fireball and falling to the ground while Rodriguez looked on in horror. While everybody else panicked, Rodriguez stayed calm and noted that the attack was likely caused by an EMP. Darryl suggested that they move downstairs and despite Rodriguez's objections, the other guests agreed and they made their move. As they made their way into the lobby, they were suddenly surrounded by the Watchdogs led by Briggs, who all charged in armed with guns.

Rodriguez keeps the people safe from harm

Left surrounded by a group of people all against her as the Watchdogs who were claiming to be trying to target the local Inhumans in order to stop the blackout, Rodriguez was trapped. On the brink of killing Mertz who was blamed by Darryl, Rodriguez sprinted around the room, collecting the guns to save him. She was eventually discovered by Maria who revealed her actions to the Watchdogs. About to be executed herself, Rodriguez was saved as Phil Coulson, Mackenzie and Leo Fitz arrived just in time and together they defeated the Watchdogs.

Rodriguez working alongside S.H.I.E.L.D.

From that incident, she had revealed herself to be an Inhuman to her closest friends, insisting that she had not changed despite her new powers, but they run away in fear and disgust. Once Maria had rejected Rodriguez and walked away, Rodriguez turned to Mackenzie, joking that now that she had lost Maria as a friend at least she would not have to wear a dress for her wedding. Searching the men, they confirmed they were Watchdogs members who had used the secret Sokovia Accords to track down and attempt to assassinate Rodriguez.[35]

Fighting the Watchdogs

Rodriguez fights the Watchdogs

"So many people looking for an excuse to hate."
"It's spreading. Passports, visas. Somebody's taking the Watchdogs global."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Phil Coulson[src]

Needing to find the source of the Blackout Attack, Rodriguez assisted Leo Fitz with a science experiment to work out the location of the EMP device by using magnetic readings and pin-point its location. Once they had concluded the test, Fitz was able to pin-point where the Watchdogs were operating from and Phil Coulson ordered them all to move and find them before any more damage could be done. Together they soon found the EMP device only to discover it was surrounded by armed Watchdogs guards. Seeking to make a distraction, Rodriguez took a nightstick and used her super-speed to run back and forth and create a light source that confused the Watchdogs and caused them to look away before she ran through the group and stole their guns. Meanwhile, Coulson, Fitz and Alphonso Mackenzie were able to sneak up behind the Watchdogs and attacked them, using the element of surprise to their advantage and easily subduing them.

Rodriguez being confronted by Mackenzie

With the Watchdogs now defeated and power restored across Miami, Rodriguez made the comment that about how the Watchdogs were fueling the hatred for Inhumans that so many people already had. Returning to the Playground, Rodriguez offered a beer to Mackenzie, but he turned it down, noting that had he wished Daisy Johnson could be there with them. Although Rodriguez tried not to give anything away, Mackenzie confronted her and explained they had discovered she was supplying the Rapid Bone-Healing Pills to Johnson. They discussed Johnson's battle with the Ghost Rider, making Mackenzie furious as she also knew of that too, although Rodriguez insisted that Johnson only contacted her and they should respect her wish not to be found.

Rodriguez watches Jeffrey Mace's speech

They were then joined by Coulson and Fitz who also discussed the hunt for the Ghost Rider, with Rodriguez explaining she had only heard rumors in Los Angeles about him. Their conversation was then cut short when Director Jeffrey Mace appeared on the television to discuss the blackout. Noting that Matthew Ellis had asked for his comment, Mace made it clear that the Inhumans were not to blame for the attack before he announced that S.H.I.E.L.D. had returned as an official United States of America agency now there to protect the world.[35]

Battle with the Chinatown Crew

After Eli Morrow betrayed S.H.I.E.L.D. and escaped to the Chinatown Crew Headquarters, S.H.I.E.L.D. decided to face him and end his plans and Rodriguez took part to the assault. She teamed up with Quake and the Ghost Rider and used her powers to perform a recon in the place. While doing so, she activated a cesium bomb system installed by Morrow and was violently ejected out by the blast, fortunately suffering only light wounds. When Alphonso Mackenzie insisted for her to be checked by Jemma Simmons, Rodriguez bluntly refused.

Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie kiss

Rodriguez went back to the Zephyr One to have an update about Morrow's plan. Director Jeffrey Mace suggested that Rodriguez should use her powers to infiltrate into the building and steal Morrow's Demon Core, but Mackenzie opposed to the idea, leading to an argument between Rodriguez and him about their relationship. Finally, S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to devise a plan to thwart Morrow's plan. After the assault was launched, Rodriguez used her super-speed to help in the fight and put a Neodymium Magnet on Morrow. Thanks to the combined efforts of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Ghost Rider, Morrow was ultimately defeated. The S.H.I.E.L.D. team went back to the Playground to celebrate their victory. Rodriguez and Mackenzie finally resolved to let their feelings blossom and shared a kiss before joining the others.[3]

Deleting Evidence

Rodriguez gives Quake Peggy Carter's pin

"Ramon, at the warehouse, I just want you to know I didn't kill him. I'm not capable of-"
"I know."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Daisy Johnson[src]

With Daisy Johnson back as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Rodriguez went to check with her about their stories for what happened between them regarding Victor Ramon, as Jeffrey Mace wanted to know what Johnson did during her time as a vigilante. Johnson managed to delete all evidence that would reveal what they wanted to hide from Mace, and Rodriguez assured Johnson she did not kill Ramon, and then gave her Peggy Carter's S.H.I.E.L.D. pin, saying that she was not giving up anything by signing the Sokovia Accords, but instead gaining a team.[2]

Aida's Attack

Rodriguez learns Aida's an android

"Radcliffe built a humanoid robot that's about to attack the base."
"Why would he do that? Has he watched no American movies from the '80s? Robots always attack."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Due to her injuries sustained in the Battle at the Chinatown Crew Headquarters, Rodriguez was instructed to take some rest and recover. However, she was soon visited in her room by Alphonso Mackenzie, who informed her that Aida, who had helped S.H.I.E.L.D. in this battle, actually was an android who had gone rogue and attempted to infiltrate the Playground to steal the Darkhold. Rodriguez met the news with incredulity, wondering how smart people like Radcliffe could have such bad ideas, and agreed to help in the fight.

Rodriguez takes cover from a rogue Quinjet

Along with Mackenzie and two other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Rodriguez patrolled the Playground in search of Aida. Arriving in the plane hangar, they figured out that Aida had remotely taken control of a Quinjet to attack them. Rodriguez took cover and began shooting at the plane to stop it. While doing so, she was genuinely surprised when Mackenzie revealed that he had taken a special insurance provision in the case he was killed by any kind of robot.

Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie kill Aida

Rodriguez and Mackenzie were able to survive the battle and reached the entrance of the Playground, where they surprised Aida from behind, enabling Mackenzie to decapitate her with his Shotgun-Axe, prompting Rodriguez to do a check with him. In the aftermath of the fight, Rodriguez and Mackenzie then played robots movie trivia in the Playground's recreational area.[36]

Failed Mission

Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie in bed

"I'm not a jealous woman. I don't pry, I don't nag. That's not me. That's a... That's a cliché. And I refuse to be a cliché."
"Yes, I know."
"So, if you want to be a man that has secrets and goes off and meets other women, that's fine. But that's another cliché I'm not interested in."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Before going into a S.H.I.E.L.D. mission to infiltrate Senator Ellen Nadeer's office, Rodriguez spent the night with Alphonso Mackenzie and admitted that she really liked being in a relationship with him. As she got out of bed to grab some water, she was told by Mackenzie that he would not join in the mission because of a text message he had just received. Rodriguez was puzzled by this turn of event, but chose not to ask any question.

Rodriguez asks Coulson about Mackenzie

Rodriguez thus went with Phil Coulson to the United States Capitol to break into Nadeer's office. On the way, Rodriguez tried to know more about Mackenzie's reason for taking personal time, but Coulson instead encouraged her to directly asked Mackenzie. Rodriguez then joked about Coulson and his relationship with Melinda May, stating that the two of them would never end together if he did not make his move. Rodriguez then used her superhuman speed to steal an access badge.

Rodriguez breaks into Ellen Nadeer's office

Entering the office, Rodriguez and Coulson rigged it with a concealed surveillance system, but Rodriguez then noticed something in a drawer, which eventually detonated, knocking her back. Seconds later, security guards burst into the office and arrested Rodriguez and Coulson, having apparently been informed beforehand that someone would try to break into Nadeer's office. Rodriguez then waited while Director Jeffrey Mace and General Glenn Talbot attempted to defuse the situation.

Rodriguez questions Alphonso Mackenzie

Rodriguez returned to the Playground, where she met with Mackenzie and informed him of the mission's failure. She also decided to follow Coulson's advice and asked him about what he had been doing. When told that Mackenzie had gone to see his ex-wife Nicole, Rodriguez feared that he wanted to end their relationship, but was instead genuinely moved when Mackenzie explained that he had only left to support Nicole for the anniversary of their daughter's death. They then shared a hug, relieved that the truth had finally come out.[5]

On the Run

Rodriguez talks to Alphonso Mackenzie LMD

"You only bring back the people that matter to you, not to me!"
"You know what? I've known Mack longer than you, and he means as much to me–"
"You promised! You promised me!"
"I tried! He didn't want to come back!"
"Who cares?! You knock him over the head, you break his legs, you kick him through the exit! It was a video game!"
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Daisy Johnson[src]

Rodriguez was out of the Playground by the time it was invaded by Life-Model Decoys created by Aida and Holden Radcliffe and remained unaware of it. She was contacted by Alphonso Mackenzie LMD, who told her that agents would come to bring her back to safety in the Playground, and did not know that the LMDs actually planned on exterminating all Inhumans known to S.H.I.E.L.D., including Rodriguez. Nevertheless, the LMDs were defeated by Daisy Johnson and Jemma Simmons, thus saving Rodriguez from this fate.

Rodriguez learns of the Framework mission

Rodriguez boarded the Zephyr One with a handful of agents who actually knew the situation: Johnson, Jemma Simmons, Piper, Prince, and James Davis. Rodriguez was then told that Johnson and Simmons would enter the Framework in order to release their friends who were trapped in it, namely Alphonso Mackenzie, Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Leo Fitz, and Jeffrey Mace. Rodriguez was instructed to watch over their physical bodies while they were in the virtual reality, but was told not to unplug them under any circumstance due to the dangers of it. Before they left, Rodriguez had Johnson and Simmons promise they would succeed.[37]

Rodriguez waiting onboard the Zephyr One

To ensure that the Framework equipment remained correctly powered, Rodriguez had all the non-vital systems of the Zephyr One disconnected, including the heating. As Davis insisted that they had to land and refuel, Rodriguez refused, stating that they could not afford it since the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were now wanted. Piper then suggested turning off the plane's cloaking and Rodriguez, despite knowing how dangerous it would be for them to be visible again, instructed her to do it. Later, Rodriguez went to check on Johnson and Simmons with Piper, and lamented over the fact that she felt useless in their efforts to save Mackenzie's life.

Rodriguez watches the Watchdogs attack

Rodriguez then soon had to deal with the consequences of this decision, as an aircraft sent by Anton Ivanov had found them and was flying their way. Rodriguez asked her teammates if they could defend themselves, only to be told by Prince that the weapons could not be used if they did not restore power to it. As the plane was hit by a strike, Rodriguez saw that Simmons and Johnson had finally left the Framework. Rodriguez rushed to Johnson and asked her whether they had been able to save Mackenzie, but Johnson apologized to her, and Rodriguez understood that Mackenzie was still to be rescued.[38] Rodriguez quickly got Johnson and Simmons up to date on the attack and stated that they could restore power to the plane's armament now that the Framework equipment did not need to be powered any longer.

Rodriguez argues with Daisy Johnson

Before they could do so, however, Rodriguez, Johnson, and Simmons had to deal with a fire that had broken out in the plane. Rodriguez used her superhuman speed to retrieve the cable they needed behind the flames, and they were thus able to power the weapons again, enabling Piper to take down the enemy aircraft. Rodriguez then engaged into an argument with Johnson, as she did not understand why they had brought back everybody but Mackenzie. She was surprised when Johnson told Rodriguez that Mackenzie refused to leave as he wanted to remain with the virtual recreation of his daughter and he did not remember her. Rodriguez decided that she would go into the Framework and bring back Mackenzie herself, but Johnson talked her out of it, stating that Rodriguez was needed to rescue their friends in the real world.

Rodriguez escaping from the oil platform

Rodriguez and her fellow agents also told Simmons and Johnson that S.H.I.E.L.D. were wanted on charges of terrorism, meaning that they could not land and refuel. Rodriguez and the others then located the Ivanov Oil Platform where their friends were and arrived on the platform, which was collapsing. Rodriguez helped Coulson and May to get into a Containment Module, but refused to leave Mackenzie behind. Due to both the elevator and the stairs being destroyed, Rodriguez was restrained by Coulson from going into certain death. However, Mackenzie was eventually saved by Aida and Fitz.

Rodriguez plugs herself into the Framework

Along with her friends, Rodriguez returned to the now destroyed Playground. She then joined a discussion regarding how they should deal with Aida. Rodriguez suggested destroying her again, but was then told that Aida was now a living being who had saved Mackenzie, rendering the situation more complicated. As Simmons was distraught because of what had happened to Fitz in the Framework and left in tears, Rodriguez understood that Simmons feared that Fitz was still in love with Aida. Later, while everyone was distracted by Aida's outburst of rage and the arrival of the United States Armed Forces led by Glenn Talbot, Rodriguez decided to carry on her plan to plug herself into the Framework to convince Mackenzie to return to the real world.[4]

Mission in the Framework

Rodriguez arrives in the Framework

"Please, Mack. Everyone who cares about you is on the other side of that door."
"The only person I care about is right here."
"What are you doing? You need to leave."
"No. It's okay. The only person I care about is here, too."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez, Alphonso Mackenzie, and Holden Radcliffe[src]

Regaining consciousness in the Framework, Rodriguez quickly realized how bad her situation was: she was restrained on a strapping chair in a torture room of the falling Triskelion, HYDRA's headquarters in this reality. Rodriguez was nearly shot by an HYDRA agent who found her, but she was ultimately saved by Holden Radcliffe, who had been guided to her from the real world by Daisy Johnson and who was the only person in the Framework who knew who Rodriguez was.

Rodriguez meets Hope Mackenzie

Having informed Radcliffe of her intentions, Rodriguez was taken to the Playground, where Alphonso Mackenzie was coordinating the evacuation of the civilians. As she had been warned, Mackenzie did not recognize her, and Rodriguez also met his daughter Hope, to whom she introduced herself. Despite Mackenzie walking by her without talking, Rodriguez told Radcliffe that he would remember her if she could talk to him.

Rodriguez speaks with Alphonso Mackenzie

Therefore, in a bus Rodriguez had taken with Mackenzie, Hope, and Radcliffe, Rodriguez approached Mackenzie and explained who she was. Although Mackenzie recalled her name which had been mentioned earlier by Johnson, he could not find any memory of her, forcing Rodriguez to tell him that they were in a relationship in the real world. However, before they could further the conversation, their attention was caught by the fact that elements of landscape, as well as people, were suddenly disappearing due to the Destruction of the Framework initiated by Aida.

Rodriguez speaks with Holden Radcliffe

Rodriguez and Radcliffe went with Mackenzie and Hope to their home. Rodriguez then lamented to Radcliffe over the fact that Mackenzie was probably going to die by being deleted from the Framework, all for a little girl who did not really exist. However, this was overheard by Hope, who rushed to her father in tears, and Mackenzie angrily reacted to Rodriguez, who apologized as she did not mean Hope to hear what she was saying.

Rodriguez decides to stay in the Framework

As more items were disappearing in the house, causing Hope to get more and more frightened, a door appeared, recognized by Radcliffe and Rodriguez as a way out of the Framework designed by Johnson. Still, Mackenzie refused to leave his daughter, and declared ready to die for the only person he cared for. In tears, Rodriguez decided to do the same, stating that Mackenzie was this person to her and that she would die if he did too, much to Radcliffe's disagreement.

Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie kiss

Eventually though, Hope disappeared as well, and although Mackenzie was devastated by it, it was only from this moment that Rodriguez was able to persuade him to leave the Framework. As a consequence, they both safely woke up in the Zephyr One, where they found Johnson and Robbie Reyes, who had returned to help S.H.I.E.L.D., watching over them. As they recovered, Rodriguez asked Mackenzie's forgiveness for causing him to abandon his daughter, but Mackenzie replied that she had nothing to be forgiven for. Instead, Mackenzie stated that he was happy of the life he had with Hope, be it in a virtual world, as it had given him a glimpse of the life he could have with Rodriguez in the real world.

Rodriguez and her allies are taken by Enoch

Rodriguez and Mackenzie then picked up radio messages indicating that the authorities were coming for the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. They went to alert their friends, who had just attended Reyes' departure to Hell, and Rodriguez joined in their collective forgiveness to Fitz for what had happened in the Framework. Rodriguez and her teammates then went to get a meal to Rae's Restaurant, but before they could leave the place, they were kidnapped by Enoch.[39]

Trapped in the Future

Traveling to the Lighthouse

Rodriguez arriving in the Lighthouse

"Thought you were gonna lose these for a second there."
"I was starting to picture myself with two hooks."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Through the Time Di'Alla, Rodriguez was sent to a mysterious destination, where she was approached by a masked individual from behind. Rodriguez started fighting the person, but discovered it was Jemma Simmons, and they investigated the area, soon being reunited with Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie, who explained they were in space. The four discussed their situation, with Rodriguez wondering if S.H.I.E.L.D. had a space-based operation, before being handed a postcard off of Virgil.

S.H.I.E.L.D. searching the Lighthouse

Once Virgil woke up, he revealed he knew who they all were from studying their lives from the stories told about them, and that they were sent there to save humanity. At that moment, Virgil was killed by a Vrellnexian, so they ran away, and were fortunately saved by Daisy Johnson, who killed the creature. As they explored the area, they all continued to speculate what had happened to them. Johnson informed them Melinda May was brought over too, so they looked for her, sticking together the entire way, as Rodriguez used her powers to scout ahead

Rodriguez being tortured by the Kree

Rodriguez soon found a flare, so they entered the room next to it, discovering that May had been in there. However, they were found by a group of Kree, so Rodriguez and Mackenzie went to fight them, but they were all knocked out. Rodriguez and Mackenzie were taken by the Kree, who tied them up and started beating Mackenzie, who kept provoking them by speaking Spanish with Rodriguez. The Kree stopped and went to freeze Rodriguez's arms off, but she was eventually saved by Johnson.[40]

Blending In

Rodriguez disposing of the Kree bodies

"I need to stay. The thing I stole from the Kree guard, boss man has it in his office, but I think I found a way to get it."
"That's good. If you can get it to me, maybe I can get to Simmons."
"Exacto. So go, but stay close."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Daisy Johnson[src]

As they tried to cover up the bodies, Deke Shaw found Rodriguez, Alphonso Mackenzie and Daisy Johnson, and yelled at them for killing the Kree. Shaw told them they had to hide the Kree, so they decided to take them to where the other bodies were so the Vrellnexians could eat them. After disposing of the bodies, they regrouped with Phil Coulson and Melinda May, only to learn that Jemma Simmons had been taken.

Rodriguez is implanted with a Metric

The team discussed their next moves, as they did not want to raise any unwanted attention, with Rodriguez being tasked with retrieving one of the Kree's tablets. As Coulson created a distraction, releasing steam, Rodriguez used her powers to steal a tablet. The group overheard that Metrics were being inspected, something they did not have, so they made a deal with Grill, who implanted the devices in their wrists. However, when the Renewal began, they were betrayed by Grill, who pinned them against a wall. They were about to be killed by Holt, but were saved by May and Tess. As part of their deal with Grill, Rodriguez, Coulson and Mackenzie had to work for him.[6]

Rodriguez working with Daisy Johnson

While working for Grill, Rodriguez became agitated by the treatment, mainly getting zapped. Mackenzie revealed that Grill had a Kree scroll in his office, so Rodriguez met up with Johnson, and they made a plan to steal it. Rodriguez used her powers to set off the Metric, making Grill think it was malfunctioning. Once Grill deactivated her Metric, Rodriguez stole the scroll and gave it to Johnson. Later, when Grill was threatening her friends, Rodriguez framed Zev, planting a gun on him, saving their lives. They then worked on the signal Coulson found, successfully making contact with the people on the Earth's surface.[7]

Rodriguez and Mackenzie confront Gunner

Mackenzie was told to deal with Gunner, so Rodriguez went with him to help avoid confrontation. Rodriguez told Mackenzie to express his feelings about beating up a man, with Mackenzie stating the idea makes him sick, and he was worried he'd become like Leo Fitz after he left the Framework, but Rodriguez promised he wouldn't. Rodriguez and Mackenzie confronted Gunner, but when it backfired, Mackenzie began wailing on him, forcing Rodriguez to pull him off. Later, Mackenzie confessed about not getting over his fake daughter, but Rodriguez told him that his love was real, and it made him a great father and a good man.[16]

Protecting Flint

Rodriguez rescues Flint from the Kree

"I'm here if you need me. I got you."
"Me too."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez to Flint[src]

Phil Coulson informed Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie about the birth control on Level 35 Kasius was using to produce more Inhumans to auction off. Tess found them and told them that the Kree were preparing for a Terrigenesis ceremony. They discovered one of the teenagers awaiting the ceremony, Flint, who had lost his parents, and Rodriguez voiced her disgust in the Kree's actions. Flint was the only one triggered by the Terrigenesis, so Rodriguez rescued him before the Kree could take him.

Rodriguez talks about her Terrigenesis

Rodriguez tried to keep Flint hidden, saying that the Kree only wanted to use him. When the rest of the group found them, Rodriguez revealed to Flint that she was Inhuman, too, and they discussed their plans to go to Earth. Rodriguez told Flint about her own Terrigenesis, but they were found by Grill, who threatened them. At that moment, Flint's geokinesis manifested, so Rodriguez guided him through it, and he ended up killing Grill.[8]

Rodriguez and the team discuss escaping

Rodriguez discussed with Coulson and Mackenzie their escape from the Lighthouse and heading to Earth, but they were interrupted when they were forced to reveal to Flint that Tess had been killed. Soon, they were reunited with Daisy Johnson, Jemma Simmons, and Leo Fitz, as well as Deke Shaw, who they were not happy to see. They discussed heading to Earth, but were found by the Kree, so they made their escape to the Trawler. However, Flint decided not to go, so Rodriguez and Mackenzie stayed with him, learning from Fitz there were weapons stored on level 3.[41]

Roach Extermination

Rodriguez and Mackenzie search level 3

"¡Bailar cucarachas![42]"
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Rodriguez discussed with Alphonso Mackenzie and Flint reaching level 3, when they were surrounded by residents of the Lighthouse who were angry at Flint, as his escape had caused them to be affected. Seeing his friends now want him dead, Flint was hesitant to continue, so Rodriguez comforted him, telling of her own experience with her friends changing how they saw her. They managed to reclaim the crate full of weapons, and Rodriguez searched the level, but found no Vrellnexians, causing them to worry.

Rodriguez exterminating the Vrellnexians

They discovered that the creatures had been released on the lower levels, so they went to hunt them down, finding one attacking Gretchen, so Mackenzie and Rodriguez killed it. Mackenzie then made a plan to exterminate the Vrellnexians using the air filtration to system to spread the mist that draws the creatures away. Rodriguez waited in a room that soon became filled up with the Vrellnexians, allowing her to plant a Splinter Bomb on each of them, successfully killing all of them. They later removed the Metrics from the residents, declaring the start of their revolution.[43]

Lighthouse Uprising

Rodriguez fights in the Lighthouse uprising

"You're no god, no devil. You're just a cruel, sad, little blue man. So why don't we skip to the part where I end this?"
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez to Kasius[src]

Having rallied the citizens of the Lighthouse together, Rodriguez worked with them to eliminate the Kree Watch. Rodriguez started teaching Flint how to shoot, but Alphonso Mackenzie was against him fighting, and stopped it. They were then reunited with Tess, who had been resurrected and sent by Kasius as a reminder of his power. They discussed stopping Kasius, who was threatening to end all human life, with Rodriguez and Flint determined to kill the Kree ruler.

Rodriguez decides to hand herself over

Rodriguez insisted to Mackenzie that she should hand herself in so she could kill Kasius, but Mackenzie refused, and they eventually discovered that there were bombs planted throughout the Lighthouse. Knowing they could not stop the bombs, Rodriguez and Mackenzie decided to hand themselves over to Kasius to save everyone else. Rodriguez and Mackenzie went to the research level, and waited for Kasius, threatening to destroy the equipment to breed Inhumans if he did not come.

Rodriguez faces off with Kasius

Once Kasius arrived, they demanded he hand over the controller for the bombs, but he refused and insisted that they surrender themselves to him. Flint soon joined them, having completed his task of relocating the bombs to level 25, and Rodriguez went to take the controller, but was stopped by a force field. Kasius then set off the bombs, only to discover that his plan had failed, and Mackenzie destroyed the equipment, allowing them to make their escape, declaring the start of their uprising.[44]

Meeting her Future Self

Rodriguez searches for the Inhumans

"Phil Coulson is dying. And you have to let him."
"Coulson... How? How does he die?"
"It's already begun. He's sick, and he knows it. We tried to stop it. Loyalty – it cost us the world."
"You heard all this, and still you couldn't change anything."
Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]

Alphonso Mackenzie tried to get the group to leave, but Tess revealed that Kasius had dead Inhumans that were being revived, so Rodriguez went to rescue them, while the rest went to regroup with the team. Rodriguez searched the Lighthouse until she came across the imprisoned Inhuman, who turned out to be herself from the future.

Rodriguez encounters her future self

The future Rodriguez explained what had happened to her, much to the present Rodriguez's horror, as well as revealing that she had experienced Mackenzie's death, and that they were in a loop of failure in trying to prevent the Earth's destruction. Rodriguez listened to her future self as she went over what went wrong, revealing that Phil Coulson was dying and that the decision to save him was what caused the end of the world.

Rodriguez comforts Alphonso Mackenzie

The Kree then arrived, so the future Rodriguez told her to go, and revealed that both of her arms were gone. Rodriguez left and went to regroup with the rest of her team before the left the future. On her way back, she found a badly beaten Mackenzie with Jemma Simmons, the former having witnessed the death of Rodriguez's future self. Rodriguez comforted Mackenzie, informing him that it wasn't her, and they all then rushed to the Time Di'Alla, making it back just as it activated, successfully leaving the future.[9]

Changing the Timeline

Losing her Arms

The S.H.I.E.L.D. team return to the present

"I want to be with Mack forever, and I want to have children with him."
"And you will. This doesn't change anything."
"Look at me. What I saw, what I heard... that's all happening. There's no future but the one I saw."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Jemma Simmons[src]

The entire S.H.I.E.L.D. team appeared inside of the Lighthouse, making them believe it did not work, but Leo Fitz confirmed that they had successfully returned to the past. They watched a recorded message from Rick Stoner, and Rodriguez accompanied Alphonso Mackenzie as he went to get his injuries treated by Jemma Simmons. They discovered a mysterious signal coming from St. Louis, Missouri, so they went to investigate, stealing a van to take them to the Zephyr One. While driving, they discussed all the previous threats they've faced before reaching the plane.

Rodriguez listening to Piper in the facility

Mackenzie spoke with Yo-Yo Rodriguez about what happened in the future with her future self, as she was still uncertain about it all, but Mackenzie assured her they could change the future. Once they reached the St. Louis Aerospace Facility, they made their way inside, where they discovered that Piper was there, and she filled them in on what had happened since they disappeared. It was discovered that Piper had cut a deal with General Hale, and they were then ambushed by a group of androids led by a mysterious figure.

Rodriguez's arms are cut off by Ruby Hale

They leader ordered the mechs to kill the agents, so Rodriguez stole their guns and they all began to fight. Despite their fighting ability, they found themselves overpowered by the mechs. Rodriguez watched as Mackenzie was pinned and about to be attacked by the leader, so she rushed to save him, but in doing so got both of her arms cut off by the Chakram. Going into shock, Rodriguez was saved by Mackenzie, who picked her up and took her back to the Zephyr, where Simmons began operating on her.[45]

Rodriguez is treated by Jemma Simmons

After the surgery, Rodriguez was bandaged up by Simmons and visited by Mackenzie, who she could tell was scared. Mackenzie explained this was because he thought he was going to lose Rodriguez, and offered to get them both away from the S.H.I.E.L.D. life, but she stated that she was not going to die yet, and that they had to stay to help with their current mission. Rodriguez also explained that a lot of things that were told to her about the future were coming true.

Rodriguez is attacked by Jemma Simmons

Rodriguez awoke from a nightmare, and was then attacked by Simmons, who tried to suffocate her with a pillow, only to be stopped by Mackenzie. They discovered that Simmons was actually an LMD created from the Fear Dimension rift. Rodriguez remained resting in her bed as the rest of the team dealt with the rift, and later attended Fitz and Simmons' wedding, which Mackenzie recorded so she could watch later.[46]

Rodriguez doubts on what her future will be

While being checked on by Simmons and Mackenzie, Rodriguez was visited by Phil Coulson, who informed her that Fitz was going to build prosthetics for her. Rodriguez asked about Coulson's prosthetic hand, wanting to know if it felt the same, but he stated that he couldn't feel at all. After falling out of bed, she was helped up by Simmons, who Rodriguez confessed to about her uncertainty regarding her future with Mackenzie, but Simmons told her the future they saw would not happen. Later, when the team returned from their mission, Mackenzie revealed he had brought back Sleeper Mechs to build her prosthetics from.[47]

"That's how evil wins. When good people begin to, uh... doubt and run the other way instead of stand up and fight, you see it everywhere. In Colombia, we have a saying. El mal presa a los debiles porque teme a los fuertes."
"Evil preys on the weak because it fears the strong."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Alphonso Mackenzie[src]

Rodriguez is a very noble woman, seeing her powers only a chance to do good instead of using them for personal gain. She is very religious, giving people symbols of faith to lift their spirits. However, she can be very sarcastic and hurtful as shown when she commented on the size of a S.H.I.E.L.D. plane and when she repeatedly called Alphonso Mackenzie too slow while working. But despite this harsh sense of humor, she is incredibly loyal to her friends, berating Lincoln Campbell for hurting Mackenzie and almost sacrificing her life to protect Mackenzie from the Primitives, all while maintaining a jokey attitude.

However, Rodriguez's loyalty can work against her allies, as she classes any lies as a personal betrayal, as shown when Phil Coulson attempted to arrest her and the other Inhumans in fear of them being controlled by Hive. As a result, Rodriguez led the Inhumans in a small revolt against S.H.I.E.L.D. before briefly choosing to leave the agency with Joey Gutierrez, although she eventually changed her mind and returned.

Powers and Abilities


"You didn't bounce back. How'd you do that?"
"I think I've always been able to. I was just holding myself back."
Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez[src]
  • Inhuman Physiology: Elena Rodriguez is an Inhuman who achieved her genetic potential after undergoing Terrigenesis and gained superhuman powers. She also gained enhanced strength from her bionic arms, after her organic ones were cut off by Ruby Hale.
    • Superhuman Speed:

      Rodriguez swiftly outrunning an energy bolt

      As an Inhuman, Rodriguez gained the power to run and move at least 180 meters per second (400 miles per hour/640 kilometers per hour), being unable to be clearly noticed by the human eye and appearing as a blur. Her super speed lasts exactly the same amount of time as one of her heartbeats; after which, due to previously holding herself back, she retrograded back to her original position through any route possible, which happened regardless of her state, as she snapped back even after being affected by Lucio's paralyzing gaze. She used this speed to disarm and kidnap Alphonso Mackenzie and also to disarm several corrupt Colombian police officers, subdue HYDRA soldiers and to snag General Glenn Talbot's medals in a split second. Rodriguez cannot be seen on security cameras and she just seems to move forward slightly which is followed by what seems to be a glitch. Rodriguez can run faster than a bolt fired from the Peruvian 0-8-4. Rodriguez used her powers to place Splinter Bombs on several Vrellnexians, and deliver blows to Daisy Johnson. She also used her speed to kill Ruby Hale after she infused 8% of the Gravitonium into her body. However, she is not fast enough to catch bullets, as her attempt to do so caused her to be shot by Primitives. She is also not fast enough to outrun a cesium explosion, though she was able to avoid being engulfed completely. Rodriguez' powers could not compete against a Gravitonium-empowered Talbot's gravity fields, as evidenced when she tried to grab his son and was unable to get close, simply returning to her origin as soon as she encountered the field. The nature of her powers requiring her to retrograde to her original position had the potential to become disadvantageous, should something interfere with the pathway of her retrogradation there is the potential she would collide into it. Although, Rodriguez was largely able to mitigate this potential weakness, as she was able to take various alternate pathways back to her original position. After remembering various points in her past while visiting Afterlife in 1983, she realized that her guilt and fear of her past was holding her back,and that she did not have to bounce back to wherever she started when she used her speed. As such, she became able to use her powers without this side effect. Rodriguez had enhanced momentum, which allowed her to enhance the force in her attacks, strikes, impacts and collisions, often propelling objects or people several feet, that she used to compensate for her average human strength.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Related to her speed, Rodriguez has an increased metabolism which causes her blood to flow faster than an average human. When Rodriguez was shot, she bled at an alarming rate; Mackenzie had to cauterize her wound to stop the excessive flow.
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Rodriguez is able to see her surroundings move in a slowed down state due to her superhuman speed, regardless if she is running or not.
  • Cybernetic Enhancement: After losing both her arms to Ruby Hale's Chakram, Rodriguez obtained cybernetic arms which granted her additional powers to complement her natural Inhuman powers. However, since they were repurposed Sleeper Mech arms and were not specifically designed for her, the original arms themselves were initially incompatible with her Inhuman powers; they overloaded her nervous system because they were not designed for extreme speeds. Leo Fitz recalibrated them shortly before the Siege of the Lighthouse, allowing her to use her Inhuman powers. Eventually, Jemma Simmons created new, organic-looking arms designed to help her blend in with the 1930s, specifically designed for her and with simulated nerve endings.
    • Enhanced Strength: Thanks to Elena's cybernetic arms, she now possesses a certain degree of enhanced strength. She was strong enough to accidentally crush a metal drinking bottle, punch a heavy boxing bag several feet back, and was able to overpower Anton Ivanov's android body. She also used her strength to break a lock, lifted up a large shelf, and was able to carry a woman to safety during the Battle of Chicago.

  • Expert Martial Artist: Since being recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. for the Secret Warriors initiative, Rodriguez was trained to combat. Her fighting skills enabled her to fight and destroy Anton Ivanov while he was using an enhanced android body without the use of her powers and knocking down Ruby Hale's robotic soldiers, she was both able to defend herself against Daisy Johnson and Pax.
  • Expert Marksman: Rodriguez is a skilled sniper, managing to hit three men at once.
  • Spy: To be added
  • Pilot: During S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mission in the past after the Chronicoms, Rodriguez was able to fly a Quinjet.
"My English is fine."
―Yo-Yo Rodriguez to Jeffrey Mace[src]
  • Bilingualism: Rodriguez is fluent in her native Spanish, as well as English, the latter of which she has greatly improved upon being recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D., albeit still with a heavy Colombian accent.

  • Nanothermite Vest: In order to avoid falling under Hive's sway, Rodriguez was then convinced to wear an explosive vest which would detonate and kill her if she was captured by Hive.
  • Framework Headset: To be added
  • Metrics: In order to blend in among humans on the Lighthouse, Rodriguez had a Metric implanted in her wrist. She removed by it during the revolution against Kasius and the Kree Watch.
  • Diviner: Upon her arrival to Afterlife, Rodriguez was handed a Diviner and had been ordered to prove that she was actually an Inhuman. Picking up the Diviner, Rodriguez had noted that it had no effect whatsoever, until she remembered that she currently had Prosthetic Arms and touched the Diviner to her face, causing a positive reaction, and proving to Jiaying that Rodriguez was an Inhuman.
