Justice League/ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #3 Review

Previously in the series, Lord Zedd tried to attack the Power Rangers but Zack manages to teleport him and Zedd out but they land in a different universe. Zack ends up meeting Batman and the rest of the Rangers arrive and they have a confrontation with the Justice League but that stops when they both realise what has happened. Meanwhile we find out that Zedd has found that he was teleported inside a Bottled City owned by Brainiac and they come up with a plan for Brainiac to get a city from Earth but not the DC Earth.

The issue opens Superman arriving in Cairo and sees one of the giant squid monsters that are attacking cities around the world. Back in Gotham with the Justice League believing that they need to split up to take down the creatures but Jason chimes in by saying that they do need to split up but stick together which confuses Flash.JLMMPR2 Jason then says that they are still connected to their teleporters in their dimension so that they will team up with each member and help them battle the monsters. Batman tells them that they won’t since that they don’t know them well to fight with and that this isn’t their Earth. The Rangers then retort that even thought that this isn’t their planet it sure is their fight since it was them who brought Zedd to this universe. Plus, they know how to take down Zedd’s creatures. Billy asks Cyborg to link into their communication systems and he does and Tommy tells Batman that they don’t have time to argue with lives at stake and that if he doesn’t want to work with them then he should stay out of their way.

Cyborg starts broadcasting a message to the Justice League reservists about the situation that is happening and we see who the reservists are. Green Arrow, Black Canary, Mera, Aquaman, Shazam and Beast Boy and Starfire from the Teen Titans.JLMMPR1 Cyborg then tells them that they will be joined at the sites by large mechanical dinosaurs and tells them who is piloting them. Cyborg then gets Batman ready to teleport to Australia but something bad happens, somebody starts to hack into the Watchtower and it took out the firewalls that Batman had in place and knocked out the teleporters. Batman asks if Zedd would be behind this but Billy tells they that Zedd would have no clue about computer systems and that it must be somebody else. Zack then tells them the fastest way that he can get Batman to Australia was for him to get into the Mastodon, which he does and when they get to Australia we see a team consisting of Supergirl, Hawkgirl, Batgirl, Kid Flash and the new Green Lantern whose name blanks me attacking a monster.

Batman asks Zack what that creature is and he replies that he has no idea. He then explains to Batman that on their universe that Zedd’s creatures are usually made the things from JLMMPR3Earth and asks if this Earth is populated by nightmares but Batman says that this creature isn’t from their world. Wonder Woman with Kim asks if there is any advice on tackling Zedd’s monsters and she replies just to keep on the attack and then we have a three-panel page showing the Justice League and Rangers attacking the monsters. Cyborg then informs them that somethings have entered Earth orbit and sees something hitting the Tyrannosaur Zord but Superman notices something about it and that they are Brainiac Drones and we then see them entering the other Zords kick the Rangers out causing them to de-morph. Wonder Woman grabs the nose of the Pterodactyl Zord and sees something happening and tells them to get the Rangers out of their Zords and we have a splash page of the Zord in it Megazord form with Brainiac’s symbol on the front. Wonder Woman manages to get Kim out, John Steward gets Tommy out and Batman blasts his way into the Mastodon Zord.

Inside the Mastodon Zord Batman tries to pull Zack away where he asks what Batman is doing and then tells his that the drones had taken their communicators and Power Coins and saying that they were going to go to their world and we see the Zord teleporting in a green flash. Batman asks for a report and the team replies across the world hat the monsters had disintegrated, the zords had disappeared and that there were no longer any signs of the Brainiac Drones since that they were no longer in their dimension since they now have what they wanted. Back in the Watchtower, the Justice League and Rangers re-group and the Rangers seemed to be rather disappointed since that the Rangers are now stuck on this Earth and they have no way back to stop Zedd and Brainiac from attacking Earth. Superman responds to the negative of the conversation by saying that Zedd isn’t just their problem and that says that it is up to them all to stop him. But Zack is still rather pissed since that they are still trapped on this Earth and asks if any of them can travel across dimensions. Flash chimes is saying that he can travel through dimensions due to the Speed Force but since that the Rangers can’t tap into that they would most likely to be ripped apart. After this Billy comes up with an idea that being if this Earth had a Large Hadron Collider.

The Rangers and League arrive in Switzerland at the Cern Facility and Tommy asks how this plan is going to happen since that it does seem to be something of a risk and how they are going to get access. Cyborg says that somebody will have to ask really nicely and Trini questions if the League always get what they want by asking and Batman replies saying that he can’t and the design for the panel looks like that he is sad when he says it. Inside the facility and the scientists that are there are shocked to see him and the thank him for saving the planet from the creature and asks he then asks them for a favour of borrowing the Large Hadron Collider. JLMMPR4The scientists seemed rather confused by the request and Superman responds saying that this is to help the fate of another world and shows the scientist the Rangers to help save their world. Later in the building Superman starts explaining to the scientists on how this team can perfect opening the door with Flash being a scientists and speed expert, John Steward being an architect with a ring that can construct anything, Billy being one of the smartest minds in his world, Cyborg being a supercomputer that can instantly do calculations and tests, Wonder Woman having the wisdom of Athena and Batman because he is Batman. He then sums up that he believes in them and they can get the Rangers home ending the issue.

So with this issue I found it to be another good issue and we got to see the plan that Brainiac and Zedd by taking the Power Coins and overriding the Zords to travel back to their Earth. Hopefully more story progression is going to happen in the next few issues since that there are only three issues left.
