Original Power Rangers Are Swapping Colors and Weapons

From a story by writer Ryan Parrott and artist Dan Mora.

A new comic book cover for Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers series published by BOOM! Studios shows the original five Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with swapped colors and weapons.

Take a look:

As you can see Trini is now the Red Ranger wielding the Power Sword, Jason is the Yellow Ranger with the Power Daggers, Billy is Black Ranger with the Power Axe, Kimberly is the Blue Ranger with the Power Lance, and Zack is the Pink Ranger with the Power Bow. This image was first shown at this past weekend’s Power Morphicon in Anaheim, California during the Boom Studios Presents: Shattered Grid and Beyond panel. Although the reason for the palette swap wasn’t given, we’re speculating that it has something to do with the fallout of the current Shattered Grid event storyline. Lord Drakkon’s master plan involves harnessing the Morphin Grid itself through violent means, so perhaps one of the side effects is the Power Rangers’ powers going on the fritz and swapping to a different member of the team.

At the panel, a cover of Jason and Trini in the midst of a passionate kiss was also shown, along with one of them fighting back-to-back against a horde of monsters.

The two teammates have been training one-on-one and have formed a deep bond throughout the pages of the Go Go Power Rangers series, and now it appears as though their relationship will be taking the next step. Although, comic book covers often do not tell the whole story, so it’s hard to say how things will work out for the pair.

Finally, it was teased that this story will sow the seeds for the iconic “Green With Evil” story arc, showing how Rita Repulsa first obtained the Green Power Coin.
