Saban Brands and Boom! Studios are announcing a brand new Mighty Morphin Power Ranger. Not who they are, or what they look like, just that there will be a new one.
New comic book chapters of the crossover event Shattered Grid will be published in May, containing this new individual.
The event has Lord Drakkon—a twisted, alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver, the Green Mighty Morphin Power Ranger—is growing more powerful with every battle against Power Rangers teams across history…while in the past, a mysterious new Ranger arrives to challenge the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers on their own turf.
And Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers #9, from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Dan Mora, introduces a new Power Ranger into the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers mythology, one with a connection to Lord Drakkon.
But why has this mysterious new character traveled back to the past to target the Power Rangers during their early days as heroes…and who is under the helmet? Both answers will rock the Power Rangers to their core and dramatically impact the events of POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID. This issue features a main cover by Mora, with variant covers by Miguel Mercado (Over The Garden Wall), Audrey Mok (Archie) and Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur).
The debut of this new Power Ranger follows the landmark introductions of Lord Drakkon in 2016; the Power Rangers of 1969 in 2017; and the Green Psycho Ranger in 2017, in the pages of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic books.
While in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #27, from writer Kyle Higgins and artist Daniele di Nicuolo,
Lord Drakkon’s power and influence grows, as the Power Rangers work with new allies from across time and dimensions, including Ranger teams such as Time Force, RPM, and Samurai, to craft a plan to fight back. But is it already too late? This issue features a main cover by Jamal Campbell (Green Arrow), with variant covers by Jordan Gibson (America) and Carlos Villa (Lockjaw).
So… who wants a new Ranger? Cosplay season anyone?
