The first issue of this six-part series is brisk and action packed. And it delivers all you could hope for in a Justice League–Power Rangers crossover. The result is plenty of action and spectacular appearances of your favorite comics characters.
Justice League Power Rangers #1 begins in the Power Ranger’s home and metropolis of Angel Grove. We are dropped in the action moments after a cataclysmic catastrophe has wiped Angel Grove off the face of the planet. There is a time swipe and we are brought back 36 hours where the Power Rangers are grouping up to find Alpha 5. Zack finds him and brings him back, but it’s all a trap.
Taking on Batman
Lord Zedd and his Putties invade the Command Center. A fight breaks out and Zack ends up teleporting Zedd away. Unfortunately he teleports them to another world. It is here on the earth in the DC Universe that Batman is mistaken for one of Zedd’s cronies. A spectacular fight breaks out between the Rangers and our Caped Crusader of Gotham.
A major part of the story has already been set up with the destruction of Angel Grove. In future issues you can expect many unique team ups and meaningful moments between the two groups of heroes.
Already we have the sense that Zack is going to feel guilty for all that has happened. He’ll need someone to ground him (into the earth, not confine him to his room) and what better mentors of power than the Justice League? There is a lot to look forward to in this mini-series.
So, if you grew up with either or both of these series, you’ll love this crossover.
