This week, the Rangers fight their evil doppelgangers, except Jason, who will be represented by a very large and very angry shrimp. I don't get it either.

We’ve seen them in all their gear, but we haven’t seen the new Power Rangers with their cool visors down — until now. Yesterday, the official Power Rangers movie Twitter account unveiled a new motion poster that shows off the Power Rangers’ cool helmets and what they look like when they’re in full Ranger mode.
Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon.
This week, Tommy keeps accidentally doing karate when he's trying to do football! You know, teen problems.
When DC and IDW published Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earlier this year, I honestly thought that DC Comics had hit the apex of putting out crossovers that fans have been wanting since at least 1993. It turns out that I was wrong, because in January, DC and Boom Studios are teaming up for Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a six-issue mini-series in which Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern and the Flash team up with Angel Grove's favorite Teenagers With Attitudes for an all-new adventure.
Last week, NYCC gave us our first official look at the new Power Rangers movie: five teens happen upon alien artifacts that give them super ninja powers, which they must use to fight off evil. It all looks pretty Power Rangers-y, but also very serious. It’s the dark and gritty Power Rangers reboot nobody was asking for, but we’re getting one anyway. Luckily, we have YouTube, and an evil genius with enough time on their hands to recut the new trailer with footage from the original show.
I am an adult, and that means that if I want to, I can spend a very large amount of money on a high-end metal action figure of Daizyuzin, the gestalt robot better known to American audiences as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Megazord. Unfortunately, that also means that I have a lot of other things to spend money on --- like, say, food, or my home --- and today, that's something I need to remind myself of a lot. Because today, Bandai has released some high quality images of the next entry in the Soul of Chogokin line.
As I watched the Power Rangers teaser yesterday in line at a Dunkin’ Donuts in a highway reststop (VIVA LE CINEMA!), I thought to myself “Man, this really doesn’t look like Power Rangers, but it really looks like Chronicle,” the 2012 film about a trio of high school kids who discover a strange object underground and gain superpowers. Although this Power Rangers still has costumes and big transforming robots and stuff, none of that is in this first teaser. Instead it’s about ... a group of school kids who discover a strange object underground and gain superpowers. Weird.
With 800 episodes over the course of 22 years, the Power Rangers television show is arguably the single most successful live-action superhero franchise of all time, and certainly one of the strangest. Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon. That's why we're looking back with an in-depth guide to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including its source material, Kyuoryu Sentai Zyuranger, in ComicsAlliance's Ranger Station!
This week, Rita Repulsa attempts to abolish our cheerocracy and install herself as cheertator with an indestructible space lizard that sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
After releasing new character posters yesterday, Lionsgate Movies has now unveiled the first look at next year's upcoming Power Rangers film with a teaser trailer that focuses heavily on the high school drama of the teens of Angel Grove, while remaining coy about the big fantastical elements that could be described as recognizably Power Rangers.
Ahead of their panel planned for this weekend at New York Comic Con, Lionsgate has released a few more official images from the Power Rangers movie. We get a better look at the redesigned costumes, plus what might possibly be a clue as to what their Zords might look like.
