While the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers battle Lord Zedd’s DARK RANGERS, the Omega Rangers come face to face with an all new enemy – one that threatens to destroy all life in the galaxy… and already has a head start!
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 54 is the penultimate issue to the long running comic series from BOOM! Studios before the series splits off into two new series. This issue, entitled “A New Evil”, continues the Omega Rangers story from the cliffhanger in Issue 52. And this is an all Omega issue, taking cue from earlier points in the Necessary Evil run.
For one, I am actually glad that the book is splitting into two new ongoing series. The back and forth worked for events like Shattered Grid and Necessary Evil, but now both teams have their own stories to tell, which is becoming much larger than one series can contain. Skipping an entire month of either side of the story has run its course.
And this issue has a lot of Omega Ranger action, with their full powers on display against a deadly new threat. Can these Rangers ever get a break? Not anytime soon apparently. How will the series conclude next month? What kinds of shakeups will happen to split the series into two new books? This issue sets up a lot, but the next has some pretty big shoes to fill to satisfy longtime readers.
