Embrace The Resistance In ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ #13

FIRST IMPRESSION

A less action filled than previous issues but still very engaging thanks to what’s happening in the alternate world.

The remaining Power Rangers storm the Command Center in hopes of taking back their home from Rita and her forces. But is it already too late for Zordon and Alpha 5?

Writing

This issue decides to decrease the action and instead focuses on more world building, flushing out the alternate world and how people have been living under the rule of Lord Drakkon. Billy and Tommy meet up with the Coinless, a group of freedom fighters made up of some of the former Power Rangers and trying their best to continue the good fight against evil. It’s interesting to see the characters who appear in this group. Bulk and Skull as legitimate supporting characters is one thing, but they also find a way to introduce Aishia into the mix.

The issue also features a lot of preparation for the coming confrontation. Finster is working on a new monster to fight against the Power Rangers who have been working to regroup and retake their command center. Lord Darkkon is disciplining his troops as he mounts an all out raid on the Coinless. It’s revealed Scorpina has been the one who has been communicating with Lord Darkkon in this world. Not a major surprise but it’s still interesting to see the two interact together. Just a lot of building tension throughout the issue.

Writer Kyle Higgins has a lot planned out and is obviously just letting the characters take a moment to breath before a final battle. Also, just going to call it now: Billy’s other self did more with Trini in the other world than simply save her. Not saying they have a kid together, but if this turns out to be the twist, remember you heard it here first.

Power Rangers

Artwork

The art still remains at a top notch level thanks to the team of Hendry Prasetya and Matt Helms. The appeal of this issue is the introduction of more of Power Ranger sentries. These protectors of Lord Drakkon have very impressive design work to them. Hopefully someone will be inspired by them and real life costume versions will be replicated at conventions in the near future.

Conclusion

An issue which is building towards an incredible battle may seem less impressive compared to previous issues, but this issue is solid. A calm before the storm moment isn’t necessarily bad as the audience needs time to figure out what is at stake before going full force into an epic battle. The series is still incredible satisfying and just needs to deliver more intensity in the next issue.
