NECESSARY EVIL continues as the Omega Rangers return to Earth and meet the Power Rangers for the first time! But if they want to defeat Lord Zedd together, Jason, Trini and Zack will have to keep their identities a secret from their friends! Features the first appearance of the Omega Ranger Zords!
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Issue 44 kicks into high gear when the Omega Rangers come to the rescue of the Power Rangers of Earth. The tables are quickly turned on Dayne in one of the most intense Zord sequences of the comic to date.
While we don’t have a concrete end time for the conclusion of this arc, it seems we are starting to reach the climax of Necessary Evil. With the Omega Rangers meeting the Earth team for the first time, the mystery still remains on their identities. Tensions arise on both Ranger Teams that will have long lasting impacts for the rest of the arc.
The writing is, as always, tight from Ryan Parrott with more snappy dialogue and in-jokes. The art is very kinetic and detailed, as always, and we can’t get enough of Daniele Di Nicuolo’s style. Particularly in this issue, Walter Baiamonte’s colors shine… literally with brilliant lens flares on Earth to the dark and cooler tones of space and the moon.
The conclusion sets up a battle that will be highly anticipated as we wait for next month.
