So there's this Franchise:

Power_rangers_logo.png

Its a kids action show that is currently on its 20th season, something totally unprecidented that will probably never happen again

It features normal teenagers with attitude

Who get super powers through the morphing grid (I swear I'll only explain if someone asks) and can turn into superheroes with cool costumes:

MMPR-Green.jpg

As their superpowered versions, they can summon giant robots to kick even more ass

The series has a lot of things going for it that put it above some of the more standard kids action fare, including some kick ass music:



Pretty fun fight coreography:



And some cool bits with linking up the various teams and seasons that give fun continuity nods and also lead to even bigger explosions than normal:





This series is pretty near and dear to me and is totally rad and still ongoing. Right now we have Super Megaforce ongoing which is a crazy awesome place for longtime fans of the series and newcomers:

It features a team lead by the spirit Gosei, a protector chosen by Zordon, the originator of some of the early power rangers teams. He gives the rangers the ability to use previous powers of other teams, which leads to a bunch of cool costumes and fights, and is going to culminate in a bunch of fun guest stars this season, including Jason David Frank as Tommy Oliver, the original Green Ranger tutoring the current ranger team:

AND, we have a new film reboot from lionsgate coming soon from Thor writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller.

So yeah, I've been sneaking this into the Superheroes thread for a while, but with the 20th season underway and a new film coming I figured I'd give a thread a shot

Talk about your favorite seasons, teams, the current show, film speculation, or ask me ridiculously obscure power rangers questions and I will nerd out for you

May the Power Protect You!

    It just wouldn't be a Power Rangers discussion without me mentioning that Ziggy is the best Power Ranger of all time.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.

    Explain the morphing grid to me.

    God dammit

    Ok so the Morphing Grid is pretty similar to the force

    Basically the Power allows you to pass through the grid and gain your powers

    Each Ranger has a specific link to a specific part of the grid, and their morpher allows them to access that link. Each team accesses a certain part of the grid and each color a certain part of that part. You can't have more than one ranger of the same color on the same team at once. You ALSO can't give ALL the energy from a section to one person, it could kill them. This explains why rangers have to be TEAMS, the power has to be split. Otherwise it will overload the grid and be bad for everyone:



    The grid also stores the memories and fighting skills and abilities of all past warriors who have used it. This allowed Tommy Oliver to create the Ranger Archives, which lets rangers view past rangers and their exploits, and is ALSO why Gosei can grant the Super Megaforce access to previous powers.

    Also, specific links or sections of the grid can be damaged. The original MMPR power coins were destroyed, and when Adam tried to access them it nearly killed him. He COULD access it, but it almost killed him, so the power still existed but the link was damaged:



    A lot of this is fan theory but is fairly well supported if you look for it

    Oh my god

    This is also why any time there is a teamup of multiple teams, there is a MASSIVE explosion behind them

    Dr K is talking about the morphing grid when she refers to the "Bio Field", and that much of its energy concentrated in one place causes a massive backlash

    RPM is absolutely one of the best seasons they've ever done

    I'm not sure I could order them, but nearly every character is great, Dr. K. is SOMEHOW one of my favorite tutors despite being a child actress and a know it all, and its a post apocalypse

    Hard to get better

    No idea on the individual Zords, but probably the Zeo Megazord since the Zeo Crystals specifically grow in power over time and they're still around because Turbo just had them change powers for no reason and the Zeo Crystal is (presumably) still active

    This might be worth a look at if you need some refreshing on Power Rangers as the guy behind the comic-book review webseries 'Atop The Fourth Wall', Linkara, has been making a retrospective series called 'History Of Power Rangers'. Just a few days ago, he's released his latest entry, Operation Overdrive, with Jungle Fury said to be coming around Christmas time.

    EDIT: Annnd it looks like this has already been mentioned in the thread while I was typing it up. Oh well, at least I provided a link. :)
