Yo-Yo Ng, the greatest supervillain you’ve never heard of

Today I found out about Yo-Yo Ng, a yo-yo wielding supervillain who made his first and only appearance in the giant sized issue #50 of The Punisher.

I haven’t been able to read this issue yet, but I found this breakdown of Yo-Yo from Alternative007:

Yo Yo is a decent villain as far as these types of comics go. He’s an albino with a shock of white hair and has a razor studded Yo Yo that he uses to kill people! He’s also a martial arts expert and if you annoy him you’ll end up in his cryogenic lab. NASA think Yo Yo is doing research for them but he’s planning to rip them off. He believes his impenetrable biospheres will not be put into space but in American cities when law and order collapses in about ten years. He’ll make a fortune if he’s correct about the the near future descending into anarchy.

It’s a shame that Yo-Yo Ng only appears in this one comic. This is one villain that I’d like to see keep coming back. Get it? Like a yo-yo.

Maybe the Punisher put him to sleep.

Or if he’s still on the run, Frank Castle could chase him around the world.

Maybe he’s working on a secret yo-yo rocket… so he could shoot the moon. That’d be a neat twist.


Spool Thread Co String Review

I recently ordered some yo-yo string from Spool Thread Co and love it. In fact, I’ve been using the same string for a few weeks. Since one of the selling points of STC string is it’s long life, I decided to do a video review over the course of a week. Here’s the result.

You can pick up the string online at SpoolThreadCo.com or follow them on instagram.


A million Pony Farts

Pony Farts is a simple slack/whip yo-yo trick I shared back in 2010. I always loved how flexible it was to work into combos, but it never really caught on. This week I decided to document some of my favorite Pony Fart variations to encourage players to explore the idea a little further.

Alvin, a yo-yoer I follow on Instagram, just shared another PF variation that I absolutely love! hashtagponyfarts

Silly repeater using @unprld #elimination #trickcircle #ccrepeaters similar to @docpop pony farts!

Here is the original Pony Farts video, which oddly looks better than the one I just shot 7 years later 🙁
