Yo-Yo is a convict and a member of the newly formed Suicide Squad with the ability to alter his body's mass and thickness.
Not much is known about Yo-Yo, except that he was an inmate at Belle Reve who volunteered to join the Suicide Squad in an attempt to "shave years off his sentence".
He was introduced as the personnel replacement for Black Spider, who was taken off-duty and evacuated after his mission. Yo-Yo introduces himself and jokes on the nature of his name, "No, I don't have a freakin' string up my ass."
He is one of the people sent to perform a smash-and-grab mission against the terrorist cell Basilisk. He is shown to flirt with fellow felon Harley Quinn, and also first demonstrates his abilities by greatly increasing his mass to protect the team from an exploding henchmen (though he can still feel the incoming heat).
When back at Belle Reve, Yo-Yo is caught up in a supervillain prison riot, tasked alongside Deadshot and El Diablo with quelling the inmate rebellion. He is ordered by Amanda Waller to retrieve King Shark from his holding cell. Yo-Yo uses his ability to slip through the bars, where an otherwise immobile King Shark devours the mass-shifter whole. King Shark lowers his head to stare blankly at Yo-Yo's blood congealing on the cell floor, perhaps feeling regret for what he has done to his fellow team member.
However, it is revealed that Yo-Yo is somehow alive inside of King Shark.
Trying to get Resurrection Man, El Diablo is left behind struggles to his feet, but out of the corner of his eye, he witnesses something gruesome. In his unconsciousness, King Shark's mouth hangs open. And from it, the elongated limbs of Yo-Yo begin to extract themselves from creature's inside. In confusion, he watches Yo-Yo struggle away from the shark, and then squeeze through a storm-drain, into the sewers.
While the squad was out on a mission against Basilisk, Amanda Waller notices that someone has been hiding in the shadows in her office, and calls on Yo-Yo to show himself. He is angry that she allowed him to be eaten by King Shark, and even more incensed when he discovers that she intended that to happen. She points out that the end result was that they now know the truth about his powers: he is indestructible.
