Surprising New Team of Rangers for MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS Includes New Ranger
There’s a new creative team working on Beyond the Grid which is the storyline will follow Shattered Grid. That team consists of writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Simone Di Meo and they seem really excited. The previous team of writer Kyle Higgins and artist Daniele Di Nicuolo also sounded really excited for what’s coming which gives me a lot of hope. During a recent interview with CB, the new team of Power Rangers that will be the focus of Beyond the Grid was unveiled, check it out below.
There are a couple of things to take note of. First, each Ranger is from a different series. You have Magna Defender from Lost Galaxy, Tanya from Zeo, Cam from Ninja Storm, Andros from In Space, Ranger Slayer (WHAT?!?!?!) from the Go Go Power Rangers comics, and a new one for those of us that never watched Super Sentai. That’s a very interesting team. Without revealing anything about the Shattered Grid storyline, Ryan Parrott mentioned that we’ll learn more about the Ranger Slayer in the upcoming Go Go #11.
Since we’ll find out more about Ranger Slayer in the not too distant future, let’s focus on this mysterious new Ranger. I first thought it was just the Blue Dino Charge Ranger since I never saw that series, but I was corrected and it turns out that it is the Talon Ranger or Dark Ranger from the Sentai series Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. He was never adapted to the American version of the show though for some reason. We have no idea who this ranger is, or what they’re like, so I think it will be fun to meet a brand new character.
When asked about why these Rangers were chosen, Bennett failed to reveal anything, but simply said:
Well, I’m excited. Shattered Grid proved to me that the Power Rangers comics are actually good and not just a joke so you can be sure I’ll be reading Beyond the Grid as well.
