I read that they was a mini spin off called Slingshot, has anyone seen it?

Do you think that there is potential for other mini spin offs in the future?

I know there was a web-series starring Yo-Yo, which might be the one you're thinking of; and also there was going to be a 'Most Wanted' with Mockingbird and Hunter that never got past the pilot (its why both characters were written out mid-S3).

I think there could be scope for doing something a bit more small-scale with some of the characters; like maybe concentrating on policing/taking care of a specific city or area of the US. Like Fitz/Simmons, Mac, Mey and Hunter using their spy skills to help folks 'ignored by regular supers'.

Quake could join a super team I guess; maybe in a mentorship role in the upcoming 'New Warriors' or have her, Deathlock (need more of him), Mockingbird and a few other low-level Marvel supers team-up and police a city that has a meta-human problem of some kind.

Use Quake to try to gently re-boot the pretty dire 'Inhumans' show?

Alternatively just have them guest-star on the Marvel Netflix shows; Quake briefly teams up with Jessica Jones, Fitz/Simmons meets the Runaways, Mey meets Colleen Wing; that kinda thing would be awesome comic-book stuff.

Yoyo is my least favourite character, so I hope a spin off chooses someone else.

I like your ideas @thetopher. I thought for sure that Quake would feature in Inhumans. I didn't mind that for easy watching. One season did the job for it though.

I want Deathlock in Luke Cage. Quake could work well in Jessica Jones, but she would be utterly hilarious if faced with FitzSimmons. I definitely want more FitzSimmons, any way I can get them! Without the threat of a Whedon killing one off (for good). I didn't like The Runaways at all but would watch it again if they were in it.
