Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 is written by Kyle Higgins and illustrated by Hendry Prasetya, with a back-up short story by Steve Orlando and Corin Howell. Based on Saban Brands‘ long-running Power Rangers franchise, five teens from Angel Grove High are granted superpowers and giant robot dinosaur Zords to defend Earth against the alien villain Rita Repulsa. When Repulsa creates an evil Green Power Rangers by brainwashing recent transfer student Tommy, the team is able to free him from her grasp and get him on their side. But with remnants of Repulsa’s control still stirring in the back of Tommy’s mind, he must confront the fact he may be more of a danger to his new team than a help. This is “Green Ranger: Year One.”
