BOOM! Will Introduce The 1960s 'Power Rangers' In October

Go-Go Power Rangers?


Source: Get Ready to Meet the Power Rangers of 1969 (Exclusive)

BOOM! Studios will be adding to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers mythos by introducing their audience to the first team of Rangers from  from 1969. Though tokusatsu (live-action special effects) heroes were on TV before 1969, the super sentai (task force) type of show didn't air until Goranger in 1975 (which wasn't given the "super" moniker), with the giant robot element started with Battle Fever J in 1979. This 1969 team predates all that, and really predates 1992's Mighty Morphers and the show they were based on Zyuranger.

The 1969 team will debut in October, with issue 20. The team won't be a group of plucky teens, but will skew a bit older. An image of the team hasn't been released, be a description of the group members has:

  • Igor – 21, male, Soviet KGB agent
  • Jamie – 24, female, British singer/songwriter
  • Terona – 21, male, war veteran
  • Daniel – 18, male, student/protestor
  • Grace – 21, female, head secretary at NASA and wannabe astronaut
