Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2 Recap/Review – The Green Ranger Falls!


Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2 Comic Book Recap

The Blue and Yellow Rangers are looking into the Dragonzord, which hasn’t been responding to  the Green Ranger lately.  The Blue Ranger Billy is disturbed by the thought that this machine was created by Rita, and though Trini, the Yellow Ranger, is conciliatory about all of this, something is clearly bothering him.  The Ranger feels insecure and out of place compared to the other Rangers, and though Trini tries to make him feel better, saying he is equal to all of them, Billy remains unconvinced.

Back in his home, Tommy remains helpless at the point of a blade.  He scoffs at his captor, who is a woman named Scorpina.  He knows she is merely a lackey of Rita, but she doesn’t back down.  When the woman threatens Tommy’s mother, the Green Ranger leaps into action, activating his teleporter and taking them both to the middle of nowhere.  Transforming into the Green Ranger <POWER RANGER SFX?> the two begin a heated battle.

However, Tommy finds himself out paced by his much faster opponent, and when Scorpina summons an army of monsters, the Ranger knows he is in trouble.  Elsewhere, Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, approaches Jason Scott, who is teaching karate.  She explains how Tommy canceled on their coffee date, so her and Jason agree to go instead.  However, before they leave, Jason’s sensai asks if Tommy would be interested in helping teach a class with Jason.  The Red Ranger expresses reluctance over this when suddenly, the Rangers are contacted by Zordon, and have to leave.  The mentor of the Rangers warns the two that Tommy is in danger.

Surrounded, Tommy fights valiantly but is hopelessly outnumbered.  Luckily, Kim and Jason are able to arrive on the scene quickly and together, the three Rangers begin to turn the tide.  The Black Ranger teleports in, and is nearly hit by a monster before he also joins in on the fray.  During the battle, Tommy once again is confronted by a vision of Rita.  She mocks the young man, saying the others don’t trust him and she tries to make Tommy feel inferior.  He ignores her words as best he can.  Back at the base, Trini says it sure seems that Rita has a specific vendetta against Tommy.  They also notice the means of Rita’s attack – she didn’t send any giant monsters, knowing she can’t face all the Rangers together.  Instead she sent one person in, undetected, to threaten the boy and his family.  It’s her way of proving how far she’ll go if Tommy doesn’t co-operate, and that she can get to him anywhere.

Zordon believes this will always be the case so long as Tommy possesses something she desires, an item known Dragon Power Coin.  Tommy refuses to relinquish it or the Dragonzord.  Billy then announces that his diagnostic of the Dragonzord revealed that the machine seems to be working properly, but it has stopped listening to the Green Ranger.  Zordon comments that the Zords are all connected to the rangers.  They must feel as comfortable with their pilots as their pilots must feel about them.  As Rita continues to mock Tommy over all of this, he finally says he’s had enough of all this nagging.  But before he can do anything, he collapses to the floor.

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2 Comic Book Review

Hello and welcome to Comic Island!  My name is Arden, and this is my recap, and review, of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2!

So yeah, my review for the first Power Rangers comic was pretty well received by you guys.  It felt right to keep going, so here we are with issue two.  One thing I should clarify from last issue though – the Red Ranger’s full name is Jason Lee Scott.  I got mixed up based on the comic’s dialogue and thought that his first name was Scott.  My bad!  Like I said last time, I’m new to Power Rangers so it will be a learning experience for me.

Anyhow, my mistakes aside, I did enjoy and would recommend Power Rangers #2.  The art and writing remain on par with the first issue, and just like the second issue of Like Father, Like Daughter, this is another example of a second issue done right.  Like I said in that review, a good second issue of a comic gets you invested in the series.  The writer of this comic Kyle Higgens does this well, investing some time to develop some of the other rangers while also focusing on the main character of this story, the Green Ranger.  It’s an admirable balance he strikes and on the whole, this comic works.

I liked what I’ve seen so far, and will restate my feelings from my review of issue one that I think this is a great all ages comic – good for kids while also enjoyable for adults.  I really think this comic is ideal for younger readers, with a story featuring a nice balanced team of both genders while also having a dynamic energy behind it.  It’s the kind of thing readers are likely to be excited about, will want to read more of, and is bound to inspire creative ideas.  So be sure to check out this series for yourself, and don’t forget to like, subscribe, and keep reading comics.
