10 Power Rangers Shows That Deserve Their Own Comics
BOOM! The studios have relaunched the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series in 2016 under the direction of writer Kyle Higgins. The series picks up shortly after the Rangers recruit Tommy Oliver as the sixth member of the team and follows never-before-seen adventures as Tommy struggles with his evil urges. The series quickly deviates from the show’s timeline, introducing new elements like an alternate world ruled by an evil Tommy.
The series was a resounding success, requiring a sister series titled Go Go Power Rangers, followed by two sets of sequels: Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers. While these comics primarily focused on the cast of Mighty Morphin, characters from other Rangers TV shows appeared in crossover events like “Shattered Grid”. However, some might deserve even more comedic spotlight.
ten Travel the universe with Power Rangers in space
power rangers in space pick up where turbo leave behind. Like the Power Rangers series that preceded it, Space really tries to fit into an established canon and build on lore. And it succeeds. Space, literally, takes the Rangers team to places audiences have never seen them before.
The setting was unique from what viewers had seen before, and the cast, led by Andros, was endearing. These characters have appeared in many other TV series crossover episodes, and they’ve even been featured in modern comic books. However, with traditions as rich as theirs, Space deserves its own full comic book series.
9 A more grounded approach with Lightspeed Rescue
The Rangers team consisted of a paramedic, a firefighter, and other jobs that required physical and medical skills. the Power Rangers Light Speed Rescue the team were very grounded in reality and put their talents to good use in their Rangers duties.
Lightspeed focused heavily on characters and their relationships. One of the reasons why BOOM! Studios’ revived comic book series has been so successful for its focus and attention when developing its characters. A comic featuring Team Lightspeed could be very heartfelt and realistic, even when battling giant alien monsters.
8 The possibility of a modern Zeo series
Readers had no idea how long the main Power Rangers comic book series would stay true to the original Mighty Morphin cast. When the series split in two Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers, the second Mighty Morphin Rangers team was introduced, with Jason, Zack, and Trini becoming Omega Rangers.
The events of the comedy series have already diverged greatly from the original TV show. You could say they are now set in entirely different timelines or universes. What’s unclear is how long this era of the Omega Rangers will last. And in the end, could readers see a sequel of these characters in a new Zeo comic book series?
seven The incredible concept of SPD
The notion of Power Rangers SPD was incredible: a planetary defense force tasked with protecting the world from alien invaders. While the series didn’t always deliver, the concept alone was amazing. If execution was an issue during the show, then she deserves another chance to execute those concepts properly – perhaps in the pages of her own comic book series?
The characters of SPD played a pivotal role in the comedy crossover “Shattered Grid,” helping the original Mighty Morphin team battle the forces of Lord Drakkon. These comic appearances cemented the view that these characters and this world deserve their own book to flesh out its potential.
6 Visit past, future and alternate realities with the force of time
Each new iteration of Power Rangers usually has one important aspect that separates it from the previous series. For example, a post-apocalyptic world, Rangers in space, etc. strength of time was one of the most interesting because the narrative potential that time travel brings to a story is limitless.
strength of time was such an entertaining TV series because of the different places and times the Rangers traveled to. This concept alone would make for an interesting comic book series, with time travel stories spanning large arcs over several months of stories. Rangers Wes and Jen were featured in the Future Sins graphic novel, but they deserve more comic spotlight with the rest of their team.
5 Explore the supernatural with mystical force
The tradition of Power Rangers Mystical Force world reads like a fantasy novel. A magical dimension filled with dark forces that have started a war called the “Great Battle”. The TV show follows a structure similar to previous Power Rangers shows: a powerful entity seeks out five people to become Rangers, but everything in this iteration involves magical and supernatural elements.
The world of Mystic Force is so rich and full of untapped potential. A long-running comic book series focused on this team could explore so much, drawing inspiration from comic book series like past and future Where black sciences, introducing readers to new concepts within the Power Rangers multiverse.
4 Other Adventures of Ninja Storm
ninja storm featured the smallest Rangers squad when it debuted in 2003. This quickly changed with the introduction and recruitment of the Green Samurai Ranger and Thunder Rangers. Even though the team was smaller, it allowed more time to flesh out each of the characters and their motivations.
The two Thunder Rangers, brothers Hunter and Blake, were two of the most interesting characters on a Power Rangers show so far. The team appears in the “Shattered Grid” crossover event, as do many of the multiverse’s Rangers. However, given how entertaining the series is, it would be great to read more of their adventures in a comic book series.
3 More Tommy Oliver in Dino Thunder
Tommy Oliver is easily the most recognizable Power Ranger of all time, based on both his incredibly complex and creative character arc and the fact that he’s appeared in countless Power Rangers content. After his long career in shows like Mighty Morphin and Zeo, Tommy returned as the new Black Ranger of the Dino Thunder team.
The show is considered one of the franchise’s best, expanding on its characters, introducing terrifying villains, and reintroducing Tommy. Although Tommy starred in the The Dragon’s Soul graphic novel, his time in Dino Thunder, and the team as a whole deserve more stories.
2 Explore the multiverse with the Solar Rangers
Although not a television series, the Solar Rangers are made up of rangers from several different Power Rangers teams, including Pink Ranger Kimberly from Mighty Morphin, Yellow Ranger Tanya from Zeo, and Red Ranger Andros from Space. Following the “Shattered Grid” crossover event, Rangers across the multiverse were lost. Together, along with new faces Ellarien and Remi, they formed the new Solar Rangers.
The team only appeared in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers “Beyond The Grid” arc, but they certainly deserve their own series. The idea of a Power Rangers team – made up of members of all the other Rangers teams – traveling the multiverse sounds incredible to read as its own comic book series.
1 Dive deeper into the Drakkon universe
Lord Drakkon technically appeared in live-action in a promotional trailer for the “Shattered Grid” comic book crossover event, but never appeared in a proper television series. At the beginning of Kyle Higgins Mighty Morphin Power Rangers run, the team encounters a Tommy Oliver from a world where Rita had retained her control over him.
World events have been explored in the pages of the main series as well as the Drakkon new dawn related graphic novel. This alternate world seems so rich in content and possibilities. An entire comic book series could explore the original Rangers team battling the forces of Drakkon before encountering their main series counterparts.
