BOOM! Studios has announced a new era for the Power Rangers. Dubbed the “Unlimited Power Era,” this new wave features two all new teams and two all new titles. The first of which is called Mighty Morphin, and is written by Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) with art from Marco Renna (Fathom Vol. 6, Sandokan, Muhammed Ali).
Looking at the covers below, you may also notice a new teammate. PR suggests a major mystery around this series in particular will be the All New Green Ranger, who will be appearing here for the first time, along with “characters you know,” as Parrot suggests. Previously, the Green Ranger appeared in the 2018 “Shattered Grid” crossover event, which was written by Parrot, as well as Kyle Higgins to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the TV show’s premiere. In it, Tommy Oliver, then-Green Ranger, went his separate way from the rest of the crew and became Lord Drakkon.
For a first look at this All New version, though, fans should check out Mighty Morphin Power Ranges #55, which is on sale in October, one month ahead of the Mighty Morphin debut. The new series aims to be both a critical continuation for long-time fans, as well as an opportunity for new ones to onboard and get accustomed to the series’ long history.
For more info on the upcoming series, check out the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Future is Now Panel” from BOOM! on July 25, 2020 at 1:00 PM PT, either through the Comic-Con@Home website, or its YouTube channel. There, fans will get a special art preview, along with behind-the-scenes details. Mighty Morphin hits shelves this November. Keep scrolling for cover art, a synopsis, and quotes from Parrot and Renna.
“The new Mighty Morphin team is on a collision course with an even deadlier Lord Zedd, who has a new mission and a new motivation – one that will change everything you thought you knew about our heroes! But even if the Mighty Morphin team can find a way to survive Zedd and their mysterious new enemies, they may discover the greatest threat to their future is the shocking secret of Zordon’s past! A new Mighty Morphin epic begins here, perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike.”
“This is a brand new beginning for an all-new Mighty Morphin team featuring characters you know – and an all new Green Ranger. This book is a chance to explore the past, present and future of the team in ways you’ve never seen before,” said Parrott. “Coming out of Necessary Evil, there seemed like an opportunity to not only start fresh but focus the story in on our new MIGHTY MORPHIN team like we haven’t before.”
“I’m really happy to have the opportunity to work on Power Rangers. I used to watch the TV show every day and being able to draw these characters is a dream come true,” said Renna. “I feel honored to be part of this fantastic team and I am excited to go into this new adventure. I really hope you enjoy my art.”
