DC And Boom Announce ‘Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ By Tom Taylor And Stephen Byrne
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.
The series will be written by Tom Taylor, with art by Stephen Byrne, and kicks off when Zack finds himself teleported out of the world of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and into the DC Universe, which finds itself uniquely unprepared for an interdimensional super sentai invasion.
Here's the information from DC and Boom's press release:
Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove when the Power Rangers’ Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged! Zack the Black Ranger is flung into an alternate universe full of citizens possessing outrageous powers and wearing strange costumes. Will Jason the Red Ranger, Trini the Yellow Ranger, Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Billy the Blue Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger be able to get to Zack in time to save him from Batman?
In addition to the standard covers drawn by Karl Kerschl (GOTHAM ACADEMY: SECOND SEMESTER), each issue will feature a variant cover drawn by one of comics’ most popular artists, pairing each member of the League with a different Power Ranger:
Batman/Pink Ranger by Dan Hipp
Cyborg/Blue Ranger by Dustin Nguyen
The Flash/Black Ranger by Yasmine Putri
Green Lantern John Stewart/Yellow Ranger by Marguerite Sauvage
Superman/Green Ranger by Chris Sprouse
Wonder Woman/Red Ranger by Marcus To
There's no word on whether Bulk and Skull will appear, and if their complete fearlessness and honesty will be rewarded with a pair of Green Lantern rings, but since the Green Lanterns already have Kilowog and Guy Gardner, it seems unlikely.
Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers debuts in stores and digitally on January 11, 2017.
