As the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers battle yet another monster created by Lord Zedd, Jason battles the past, the present, and the future in his mind. Can he overcome the challenges from the Blue Emissary and in time to save his friends? Find out in today’s issue of Go Go Power Rangers.
As you recall the issues of Go Go Power Rangers going forward take place after the Green Ranger has lost his power to Lord Zedd (in the television canon).
The issue starts with various Power Rangers fighting Lord Drakkon and his Ranger Sentries on the moon. This works as “additional scenes” as these are meant to happen during Shattered Grid #1. We get nice tributes to the Zeo Gold Ranger, Super Megaforce Yellow Ranger, the core three RPM Rangers, and even the Beast Morphers Rangers are present. Jason ends up morphing and taking on Lord Drakkon who quickly and unexplainably changes forms. We quickly cut to Jason’s bedroom as the Blue Emissary is still unleashing all the memories of what really happened in to his mind.
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are battling the rabbit monster created by Lord Zedd. They’re able to keep him at bay but are not able to defeat him without the help of Jason. They page him but he doesn’t respond. Jason eventually comes to his senses and, without giving the Blue Emissary an answer, morphs to help his friends defeat the rabbit monster.
After the battle, Jason is sketchy as to his answer to his teammates on why he was so tardy to battle. Kim and Matt share a moment at the playground together as she vents all of her frustrations and worries about being a Power Ranger to the only civilian aware of their identities.
The issue ends with Jason agreeing to help the Blue Emissary but also stating that they need to create a new team to confront the upcoming threat … three shadowed individuals (who we have seen at least two of them in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic) who pose a larger and more dangerous threat than Rita Repulsa or Lord Zedd. A glimpse in to the future and of what is to come.
As stated previously, the Go Go Power Rangers comic helps fill in the blanks in the gap in time from where Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Shattered Grid #1 left off and where Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #40 began. It isn’t essential to read but it is incredibly rewarding, with beautiful artwork and a top-notch story. If you’re a Power Rangers fan and you enjoy the extra backstory to things, definitely pick this book up.
