The Power Rangers HyperForce have suffered with their time in the Shattered Grid event for the Power Rangers comic books. Last week, our heroes arrived at New Tech City but it wasn’t the same New Tech City that they remembered – instead it was overrun with sentries bearing the look of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Our heroes found an ally in Colonel Hicks as they planned to break prisoners out of a stronghold, retrieve data on Scorpina‘s plans, and help the Coinless continue their fight.
SPOILERS FOR POWER RANGERS HYPERFORCE BELOW!!!
Unfortunately, their plans were tragically ruined as Colonel Hicks turned out to be merely a shell of human flesh for the evil Pumpkin Rapper, who grew large and immediately self-destructed, killing most of the imprisoned civilians that the Power Rangers HyperForce were attempting to rescue. As our heroes learned of the fate of those they attempted to rescue, a ship landed and a figure clad in white stepped out – “Enough!” cried this figure, slamming a sword in to the ground.
Lord Drakkon had arrived.
Tonight on Power Rangers HyperForce, Jason David Frank (the original Green Mighty Morphin Power Ranger) rejoins the cast of Power Rangers HyperForce making his debut appearance as the evil Lord Drakkon.
For those unfamiliar with Lord Drakkon, he is the future Tommy Oliver from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers who voluntarily chose to stay at the side of Rita Repulsa, helping her conquer most of the Earth and destroyed the Power Rangers. Those who remain call themselves the Coinless and their resistance battle is, at best, simply delaying the inevitable.
The Shattered Grid event in the comic books features the return of Lord Drakkon, having broken free of his prison within the Prometheus, traveling through space and time to destroy ALL the Power Rangers once and for all. This is the Power Rangers event fans have been clamoring for. This event will forever change the Power Rangers as we have all come to know them as, and not everyone is going to survive the fight.
Will the Power Rangers HyperForce be able to stop the evil Lord Drakkon? Will they be able to stop Scorpina from using Serpentara to destroy an entire coast of the United States? Will any of them make it out of this alive? Tune in to Power Rangers HyperForce on Twitch.TV via Hyper RPG at 6pm PST and find out!
