In anticipation of the film reboot the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’s base is infiltrated and attacked by Lord Zedd. The only one left to protect their base, Zack teleports Lord Zedd and his henchmen to the Justice League’s dimension where they encounter Batman. This cannot be good. Both Batman and Zack needs a rescue from one another!
This is a classic team up comic where the two factions meet and fight one another! We don’t see the end of the fight as it ends on a cliff-hanger but it’s fun. One thing that this story does which a lot of reboots of kids’ cartoons tend to do is to increase the stakes on the cosy and nice world of the reader’s childhood heroes by showing some real destruction with dire consequences. We will have to wait for future issues to find out how exactly this pans out though.
I admit that I dreaded reading this comic. It is a cheap plug in for the film’s reboot due later this year. I also was not a fan of this television series when it played. So far so good. It’s a simple story but the artwork and the colouring are great. There are some cool action scenes, especially the one where Batman faces off against Zack.
