After a nice long fall hiatus, we’re going to close out 2013 by bringing you the rest of the TokuNation.com Users Top 20 Power Rangers of All Time list for the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers! To kick it off, we’re announcing the next on the list that YOU voted for in early 2013! Your 11th Best Power Ranger of All Time is … Dan Ewing, who played Dillon the Power Rangers RPM Black Ranger!
At the end of the Disney run of the Power Rangers franchise, the series was given to a new executive producer, Eddie Guzelian, who stated he was told that no matter what he did, this was going to be the last installment of Power Rangers. With that in mind, Eddie took the series away from the rather campy humor of talking cars from the Japanese series GoOnger, and instead put our heroes in a post-apocalyptic world where evil machines had taken over. Our heroes, the Power Rangers RPM, were the protectors of the last human civilization on Earth – the domed city of Corinth. A mysterious man in a leather jacket and a hot rod muscle car, Dillon, was selected to be the Series Black Operator because, in part, of the machine implants that were riddled throughout his body. As the series progressed, we learned that the machine implants were actually Venjix hardware, aka the bad guys turned him in to a hybrid human/machine, and that he was also looking for his sister, who he believes he was separated from inside a Venjix facility.
Dillon would eventually find his sister (who we are not naming for spoiler reasons if you haven’t seen the show yet, and if you haven’t, GO SEE IT NOW) and, with the help of Dr. K, find a way to cure the struggle of control in his body between man and machine. The story of Dillon has its happy ending, and you’ll need to watch Power Rangers RPM to find out what all that entails!
Dan Ewing was born and raised near Sydney, Australia. He is an accomplished athlete as well as a successful actor. As well as being on Power Rangers RPM, he also was a contestant in the Australian Dancing with the Stars, as well as a starring role in the show Home and Away, though he has recently announced that he is leaving the show in 2014. You can follow him on Twitter at @_DanEwing.
