NECESSARY EVIL, the Power Rangers comic book event of 2019, continues here! You think you know everything about the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers – but this issue answers one of the biggest questions in franchise history with revelations that will shake the team to their core. The White Ranger may be their new leader…but who is the new enemy of the Power Rangers?
Did you want answers from last month’s “to be continued” page reveal? Well, you’re in for a treat because this issue completely focuses on Jason, Trini and Zack as the Omega Rangers!
Readers will be thrown into this new universe quickly with new locations, characters and villains. New supporting characters are introduced that give the Omega Rangers their own type of Zordon and Alpha. As well as another surprise you won’t want to miss…
Writer Ryan Parrott fleshes out the new world the trio find themselves in, while still leaving some mysteries for future issues. The dialogue stays snappy throughout the issue, including the fighting banter which carries over from Ryan’s run on Go Go Power Rangers.
Artist Daniele Di Nicuolo makes the action in this issue impactful and kinetic. The Omega Ranger’s morphing sequence is truly powerful as well as the fighting in this issue.
Colorists Walter Baiamonte and Katia Ranalli make this new alien universe vibrant and colorful, bringing to life Daniele’s fantastic artwork. This is the same art team from Shattered Grid, so you know to expect quality.
You can also see how this series will tie into Go Go Power Rangers’ version of Necessary Evil as the last page of that issue ties into this issue.
With Danye from the previous issue and the new worlds and aliens in this story, the universe of the Power Rangers continues to expand. One of the things I liked about the “Zordon Era” of the tv series was the universe building they managed to achieve. This issue expands that concept to another level and makes this issue a must read.
