Still reeling from the revelation of the New Green Ranger‘s true identity, the New Mighty Morphin team must join with former Ranger Grace Sterling to save Angel Grove from a new threat tied to Zordon‘s surprising past. But nothing could prepare the Rangers for the two people who stand in their way…
Last time on Mighty Morphin, we got a glimpse of Matthew Cook becoming the new Green Ranger after his reveal at the end of Issue 4. In Issue 6 we see what’s going on outside of the dome, but not before another flashback to Zordon’s time over 10,000 years ago.
By now I think everyone knows how much I dig these glimpses into the past. We didn’t get one in the last issue since it focused on Matt, but I’m glad to see it return. Now that Zordon is Chief Guardian, there’s a moment between him and Zartus that needed to be shared. Supreme Guardian Zophram chose Zordon over Zartus, and Zartus was right to be upset. While he admits that Zordon might be a greater warrior than him, I wonder if Zartus will harbor some jealousy going forward.
In the final bit of the preview, we learn that the Power Rangers are now working with the Marines to help deal with the energy barrier. Later in the issue we find out there has been a 23-day time-skip. This is the only spoiler I’ll give in my review, but I’m glad some time has passed in the story. I appreciate we didn’t get four issues of them trying to figure things out with the energy field or the story being overly extended. It not only makes the situation of Lord Zedd’s energy field a bigger threat, but has some lasting consequences later in the issue.
The rest of the issue has more great character moments, especially finding out more about Rocky’s family. Rocky has been increasingly one of my favorite characters in the last few issues and I’m glad the Stone Canyon trio are getting fleshed out. They got the short end of the stick during Necessary Evil, but they are coming into their own in this current run of the comics.
We get another twist at the end of the issue and I’m honestly not sure where the story will go from here. Writer Ryan Parrott has a knack for making these cliffhangers being interesting and leaving readers wanting more. I have so many questions, and I think everyone else will too. Why do we have to wait another month??
