Justice League/ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #2 Review

We continue off with the Rangers arriving in the DC Universe to help Zack and continuing their fight against the Justice League. The team notes that the Flash has vanished but Billy jlpr5bring s up that he hasn’t that that he moves too fast for them to see. Tommy asks why he hasn’t attacked them yet and Billy assess that he is watching them to see what they do, he then contacts Kim to see if she still has Batman. She says she does but also says that there is somebody else up there with her flying and we see that it is Superman who tells her to land the Pterodactyl.

John Stewart arrives at the scene and asks Flash what they are dealing with. Flash says that he thinks that the Rangers aren’t from here and have no idea who they are.jlpr3 John replies says that they attacked Batman but Flash responds says that if he didn’t know who Batman was he would attack him too. John then encases the Rangers in a bubble construct but the Rangers break out of it easily by summoning their Zords and we get a cool two page spread of the Rangers roll call. Jason comes up with a strategy to have Trini and Billy to run protection whilst the rest of them attack the Justice League. The Zords blast away John and he starts falling with Flash being able to catch him, Cyborg then arrives down from the Watchtower. Cyborg tries to blast the Dragonzord and manages to damage it and in retaliation Jason tries to blast Cyborg with Eye Beam attack but Flash manages to save him. He then runs up the back of Jason’s Zord and vibrates through and takes out Jason.

jlpr6He goes to punch Jason but Superman stops him from doing it. Kim also tells Jason to stop fighting and says that the Justice League aren’t the bad guys. Jason questions on what if she is wrong but she responds by telling him to trust her since that we then see that she has been bound in Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth. Zack apologises for what he has done and says that in his defence that in their universe heroes don’t dress up like bats. Wonder Woman then asks them who they are and Kim responds saying that they are the Power Rangers, protectors of Earth in their dimension. Billy then adds that their base was attacked and their teleporters damaged and that was how Zack was transported here. Trini then says that they can’t leave yet and they tell them that they Zack wasn’t the only other one that was transported and that he brought with him a great threat and we then see Lord Zedd hurtling through space and then a green light teleporting him somewhere.

jlpr2Zedd wonders where he is and questions an alien on where he is but he tells him to be calm and not to draw attention as HE will notice them. Zedd questions on who will notice and we see a large shadow approaching them and we see that Zedd is inside a bottled city. The alien shouts to run and hide but Zedd isn’t having any of that and uses magic to make himself grow back to normal size and he breaks out of the bottled city and we find that he has come face-to-face with Brainiac. A bit of time passes and Zedd and Brainiac talking with Zedd noting that they both want the Universe and that they both have had the same problems conquering and that it their problems with the Justice League and the Power Rangers. Zedd comes up with an interesting idea of saying that he needs an Earth city for his collection but suggests that he takes a city from his dimension and Brainiac seems interested by this. He asks Zedd what he needs for his plan and says that he would need some creatures from his other bottled cities.

Back in Gotham the two teams are glad that they have used diplomacy to resolve their problems instead of fighting. Batman has a rather good line where he says that the last dinosaur that attacked him ended up as a trophy in his cave and Zack continues asking how they are supposed to know that Batman is a good guy. jlpr4Superman apologises about Batman but he then hears something. Cyborg then notes to the team that the internet just exploded with news that there are monsters attacking the world. We then get another amazing two page spread where we see four cities, Tokyo, Melbourne, Cairo and Dublin being attacked by giant octopi type monsters. Superman flies off and informs that they will need every Justice League members and reserves on every continent. Batman then points at Zack saying that he brought this here and that they will help them fight them since that fighting giant monsters attacking cities is what they do, ending issue two.

Overall this is a really good issue. The Ranger and Justice League were able to resolute their problem that they were having and I can’t wait to see what they have install for them to for the next issue. But the most important thing is that we now know what happened Zedd and what his plan is since that it was shown at the beginning of the first issue and I have to reiterate I am looking forward for the rest of this series.
