Worlds collide as Justice League cross over with Power Rangers

October 18th, 2016 by Phil Robinson Comments


There are crossovers that seem to fit light a glove, then there are those that make you scratch your head in wonder. This is firmly in the latter camp, as the Justice League will cross paths with the Power Rangers in a new comic series.

This is one to watch.

Coming together to make childhood fantasies happen, DC, Boom! Studios and Saban Brands are set to release a six-issue miniseries from writer Tom Taylor and artist Stephen Byrne.

“DC and Boom! Studios teaming up on this crossover is a dream come true for fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Justice League,” said DC’s Hank Kanalz. “Stories like this are a great way to have that ‘what if’ itch scratched, combining favorite characters from different publishers in epic adventures.”

“We have iconic characters meeting for the first time that are beloved the world over! Our imaginations have been racing since the moment this kicked off with our friends at DC and Saban Brands. Get ready… this is one event that’s not to be missed,” added Matt Gagnon of Boom! Studios.

The big question for fans of both worlds is obviously how they cross. What we’ve heard is that a breach in the Rangers’ teleporters throws Zack into the DC universe.

The Justice League/Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers crossover series begins 11th January 2017.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
