The new Power Rangers comic ” Soul of the Dragon” Released yesterday. The new comic follows an aged Tommy Oliver in his journey to find his son. But one cool thing we get to see is a New Power Ranger.
The comic is described as
“As a young adult, Tommy Oliver set upon a journey that would inspire hundreds of Power Rangers that would come afterwards, thwarting evils like Empress Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, and King Mondo of the Machine Empire. Now, Tommy’s retired with Katherine and leaves protecting the world to Space Patrol Delta–including his son, JJ. But when Jake disappears, presumed dead after an undercover mission goes wrong, Tommy will call on all his training, his friends, and maybe even some of his enemies as he sets out on one last mission: find his son and bring him home. From writer Kyle Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Nightwing) comes the final story for history’s mightiest Power Ranger.”
Think of this Comic as the “Old Man Logan” of the Power Rangers universe. Tommy has hung up his morpher and explored the civilian life. But he must come out of retirement to investigate his missing son J.J.
On his journey to find his son we realize he isn’t dead but on an undercover mission. We also get to see him suit up as a ranger using a dark energy.
We also get to see JJ suit up as the original green ranger.
At the end JJ steps out of the shadows of his father and becomes the new SPD Green Ranger but he is sporting a familiar shield.
