After a devastating loss to the enemy, Kimberly and the remaining Power Rangers must rally their remaining forces in a final stand against Lord Drakkon’s cruel world-ending contingency plan. The Rangers will take on an enemy never before seen in Power Ranger history!
What happens to a world split between warring factions? In the face of a much greater evil, can people put aside their differences and work together for a common purpose? Do our past traumas define who we are now?
The final issue of Drakkon New Dawn answers these questions, while leaving a couple more questions on the table. The final panels of this miniseries definitely open up the possibility for more adventures in the world of The Coinless…. sorry, The Shattered. They may have been shattered as a people in the course of the mini-series, but they are not completely broken.
Throughout the issue there is a sense of hope to what the core of Power Rangers should be. How we can be at our best working together as a team. Being a Power Ranger is more than just having powers or a fancy suit. Many characters in this issue learn that lesson, and it almost feels like the episode of Power Rangers In Space, “Countdown to Destruction”. Fitting since there is a similar structure in this issue, but with a multiverse twist. The issue also gives off that feeling of triumph and hope, much like Bulk and Skull declaring themselves as Power Rangers in “Countdown…”.
This story was never just about Kimberly coming back home to find her place, but how a world on the brink of destruction can still have a chance to heal and rebuild. Very reflective of the state of the world now, and as a commentary – it’s fitting. If there is ever another chance to revisit this part of the Power Rangers universe, I hope that we get more messages like this.
