The team explores the added everyday benefits – and drawbacks – of being a teenager with Morphin powers, while Rita concocts a plan to uncover the Rangers’ true identities!
Four days before “Arrival Day”, Kimberly has an awkward and embarrassing first date with Matt at the carnival after see gets sick from the food. Despite that, Matt wants to go on a second date.
In the present, the Power Rangers are fighting for their survival in Rita Repulsa‘s palace. They are able to save the astronauts, but not before Rita tries to make a deal with them to give up after she learns their names. The Rangers deal with the consequences of Arrival Day at both home and school. Jason and Trini decide to test their powers, Billy surprises Zack with his newest invention, Kimberly remembers the “Salad Girl” incident and Rita sends her latest creation to Earth…
Issue two starts off the trend in this series of opening the issue with a flashback to times before “Arrival Day”. These flashbacks give a greater depth to the lives of the teens before they were Rangers as well as the villains. One of the most appreciated aspects of this series is that writer Ryan Parrott calls out a clear timeline of events. Since the premise of the comic is to flesh out the time before Tommy joins the team after “Green With Evil”, this give the comic milestones the viewers can keep an eye out for.
One of the best moments in this particular issue is Jason and Trini testing the limits of the Power Rangers’ suits. It’s great to have these types of moments sprinkled throughout the series and to see events that we only imagined happened when watching the show.
