Justice League Meets The Power Rangers This January!


Hot on the heels of the last DC Comics/Boom Studios crossover, Gotham Academy/Lumberjanes, DC and Boom Studios announced that DC’s flagship heroes will be teaming up with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The adventure begins when Zack gets flung into the DC Universe via teleportation accident, and the other Rangers must disembark to save him. Interestingly enough, this Justice League looks like it includes both Cyborg and the John Stewart Green lantern. The crossover will be a six issue miniseries starting this January. Between this, the upcoming movie, and the recently announced video game, now is a good time to be a Power Rangers fan.

Power Rangers recreate Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover

Here’s a bit of odd news. The latest iteration of the Power Rangers have recreated the cover to the Beatles’ Abbey Road album. This happened to coincide with a new Scorcese documentary on George Harrison, John Lennon’s 71st Birthday and Paul McCartney getting married for the third time. I’m not sure if this was done as a joke or as a more official publicity stunt, but its amusing either way.

Powet Alphabet: M is for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the Megazord Cockpit

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

The Might Morphin Power RangersIn the summer of 1993, a wondrous new phenomenon began with Mighy Morphin’ Power Rangers. This is a show which, in a way, continues today in vastly inferior shows also carrying the name “Power Rangers”. Here I will be discussing only “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”, which is what the show was called for it’s first 3 seasons, when the Power Rangers wore the first iconic uniforms they did. This spans the era of the Dinozords, the Thunderzords and finally the Ninja Zords, which includes the first movie. It stops when Power Rangers Zeo starts, but it’s best not to dwell on such things…

A Team of Teenagers With AttitudeThe concept of the show was simple. When the Earth is threatened, 5 teenagers are given the ability to metamorphosise or “Morph” into … well teenagers in spandex of the same colour as the only colour they have in their wardrobe, which gives them the incredible power of dinosaurs and weapons which they use to fight their enemies. They use these to protect the city of Angel Grove, which is always the target of attacks. Each week consists of them dealing with some life problem, facing off against a monster, good guys morph, bad guy is grown, good guys call giant dinosaur robots, good guys win. Rinse, repeat.

Green Ranger beats MMA fighter as if he was a Putty

The Green Power Ranger
A few years ago reported on Jason David Frank bailing on an MMA match but yesterday he finally made his Mixed Martial Arts debut and currently stands undefeated. Also known as Tommy Oliver, the Green Power Ranger, the White Power Ranger and some other things in latter lesser incarnations of the show, this once superhero didn’t even need to morph in order to take care of opponent Jonathan Mack leading fans to believe the competitor was on par with your run of the mill Putty Patroller.

This Putty put up about as good a fight

Green Power Ranger Bails on a Cage Fight

Green Power Ranger
“Never escalate a battle unless Rita forces you to.”

Granted Tommy had not joined the Power Rangers when Zordon layed out that and other rules to go by to the Power Rangers when they were first formed but he still knows what being a Power Ranger is about. You don’t use excessive force against an opponent unnecessarily and that’s why when some putties show up they don’t automatically morph and call their Megazords to obliterate them.

Jason David Frank played Tommy Oliver in Power Ranger and was affiliated with the show for the better part of a decade. While best known for being the Green Ranger he’s been all the colours of the rainbow. So with all that experience why is it Tommy pulled out of a planned cage fight he was meant to have this past Saturday?

The Daily Egyptian reports that while Jason David Frank was on hand to sign autographs he bailed on the fight when he learned only boxing was allowed and that it was not mixed martial arts, which is his specialty.

Though it’s not in fitting with the Power Ranger mentality to trounce on someone with less training than you, as the fight would have been, I’m not sure that mentality would also lend to cage fighting.

Regardless this is a dissapointing outcome to a highly anticipated match. I’m looking forward to seeing where this career goes and whether or not he can fit the Dragonzord in that cage.

Thanks to Tigerpaw for helping to track down this information.
