American entertainment and merchandising franchise

Power Rangers is an American entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live-action superhero television series, based on the Japanese tokusatsu franchise Super Sentai. Produced first by Saban Entertainment, second by BVS Entertainment, later by Saban Brands, and today by SCG Power Rangers and Hasbro, the Power Rangers television series takes much of its footage from the Super Sentai television series, produced by Toei Company.[1] The first Power Rangers entry, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, debuted on August 28, , and helped launch the Fox Kids programming block of the s, during which it catapulted into popular culture along with a line of action figures and other toys by Bandai.[2] By , the media franchise had generated over $6&#;billion in toy sales.[3]

Despite initial criticism that its action violence targeted child audiences, the franchise has been commercially successful. As of , Power Rangers consists of 28 television seasons of 21 different themed series and three theatrical films released in , , and

In , Haim Saban, creator of the series, regained ownership of the franchise. It was previously owned for seven years by The Walt Disney Company. In , Hasbro was named the new master toy licensee. Shortly afterwards, Saban Brands and Hasbro announced that the latter would acquire the franchise and the rest of the former's entertainment assets in a $&#;million deal, with the first products from Hasbro becoming available in early [4][5]

Premise

Further information: List of Power Rangers characters

Since Power Rangers derives most of its footage from the Super Sentai series, it features many hallmarks that distinguish it from other superhero series. Each series revolves around a team of youths recruited and trained by a mentor to morph into the eponymous Power Rangers, able to use special powers and pilot immense assault machines, called Zords, to overcome the periodic antagonists. In the original series Mighty Morphin, the wizard Zordon recruits "teenagers with attitude" against Rita Repulsa.[6]

When "morphed," the rangers become powerful superheroes wearing color-coded skin-tight spandex suits and helmets with opaquevisors; identical except in individual rangers' color, helmet design, and minor styling such as incorporating a skirt. Morphed Rangers generally possess enhanced strength, durability, agility and combat prowess. Some possess superhuman or psychic abilities such as super-speed, element manipulation, extra-sensory perception or invisibility.[7] In addition, each individual ranger has a unique weapon, as well as common weaponry used for ground fighting.[note 1] When enemies grow to incredible size (as nearly all do), Rangers use individual Zords that combine into a larger Megazord.

Rangers teams operate in teams of three to five, with more Rangers joining the team later. Each team of Rangers, with a few exceptions, obeys a general set of conventions, outlined at the beginning of Mighty Morphin and implied by mentors throughout many of the other series: Power Rangers may not use their Ranger powers for personal gain or for escalating a fight (unless the enemy does so), nor may the Power Rangers disclose their identities to the general public.[note 2] The penalty for disobeying these rules is the loss of their power.

As in Super Sentai, the color palette of each Power Rangers team changes every series.[note 3] Only Red and Blue appear in every Ranger team, while a Yellow Ranger has been present in every season except Power Rangers Dino Charge and Power Rangers Dino Fury. Other colors and designations also appear throughout the series.[note 4] A Rangers' color designation also influences their wardrobe throughout the series: civilian clothing often matches Ranger color.[note 5]

History

Adapting the Super Sentai series

The idea of adapting Sentai series for America emerged in the late s after the agreement between Toei Company and Marvel Comics to exchange concepts to adapt them to their respective audiences. Toei, with Marvel Productions, created the Japanese Spider-Man television series, and produced three Super Sentai series, which had great success in Japan. Marvel and Stan Lee tried sell the Sun Vulcan series to American television stations including HBO, but found no buyers and the agreement ended.[8][9]

Several years later, another idea to adapt Super Sentai began in the 80s when Haim Saban made a business trip to Japan, in which, during his stay at the hotel, the only thing that was being transmitted on his television was the Japanese series Super Sentai. At that time, Saban was fascinated by the concept of 5 people masked in spandex suits fighting monsters, so in , he produced the pilot episode of Bio-Man, an American adaptation of Choudenshi Bioman, which was rejected by several of the largest American television stations.[10][11] His idea only took off in , as Saban came to Fox Kids, whose president Margaret Loesch had previously helmed Marvel Productions and thus was familiar with Super Sentai.[12]

Production of Power Rangers episodes involves extensive localization of and revision of original Super Sentai source material to incorporate American culture and conform to American television standards. Rather than making an English dub or translation of the Japanese footage, Power Rangers programs consist of scenes featuring English-speaking actors spliced with scenes featuring either Japanese actors dubbed into English or the action scenes from the Super Sentai Series featuring the Rangers fighting monsters or the giant robot (Zord and Megazord) battles with English dubbing. In some series, original fight scenes are filmed to incorporate characters or items unique to the Power Rangers production.[13] Like many of Saban Entertainment previous ventures in localizing Japanese television for a Western audience, the plot, character names, and other names usually differ greatly from the source footage, though a few seasons have stayed close to the story of the original Super Sentai season. The American arm of Bandai, who co-produced the Sentai shows and manufactured its toys, worked with the adaptation of the Japanese names. A brainstorming among executives led to "Power Rangers", and for the specific show that would be made, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, evoking the transformation sequences. The meeting also brought up the term "Zord" for the giant robots, to invoke both the sword that the Megazord carried, and the dinosaurs that were the team's theme.[12]

Along with adapting the villains from the Super Sentai counterparts, most Power Rangers series also feature villains with no Sentai counterpart. Generally, the primary antagonist of a Power Rangers series (for example, Lord Zedd, Divatox, etc.) are not adapted from the Sentai. Exceptions to this includes Mighty Morphin, Zeo, Lightspeed Rescue and a few others which only use villains adapted from the Japanese shows.

The series that began the franchise, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (an American adaptation of the Japanese Super Sentai Series, Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger), began broadcasting as part of the Fox Kids block of programing that aired on the FOX network. It lasted for three seasons (from to ).[14]

Hasbro announced National Power Rangers Day to be celebrated annually on August [15][16]

Broadcast history

Saban Entertainment distributed Power Rangers from until the end of , and Fox broadcast the series until the fall of The Walt Disney Company purchased the franchise as part of a buyout of Fox Family Worldwide that took place in [14][17][18][19] Fox Family Worldwide subsequently became ABC Family Worldwide Inc.[19] This buyout also saw Saban Entertainment becoming BVS Entertainment in , from News Corporation, Fox's parent company, and Haim Saban.[19] The show continued to air on Fox Kids until its replacement by the 4Kids Entertainment-produced "FoxBox. From September , the series had aired on various Disney-owned networks, including the ABC Kids program block, ABC Family, Toon Disney, and Jetix-branded outlets worldwide.[14] When Wild Force ended, Disney moved production of the franchise from Los Angeles to New Zealand. This resulted in the closure of MMPR Productions and the dismissal of many members of the production. Jetix blocks would air in the United States on ABC Family and Toon Disney. On February 12, , Toon Disney was replaced with Disney XD, with Power Rangers being removed from the new channel's lineup. Several ABC affiliate broadcasting groups, including Hearst Television, declined to air the series due to the lack of FCC-compliant educational and informational content.[20]

The Saban-era seasons used the "Saban's Power Rangers" moniker. Although Mighty Morphin, Zeo and Turbo occasionally used the Saban Entertainment wordmark (albeit mostly for advertising), this did not become commonplace until In Space. Wild Force also used the "Saban's Power Rangers" moniker pre-production prior to the Disney buyout before production began. Since the re-acquisition of Power Rangers by Saban in , this practice has continued once again starting with Samurai, and will continue with the Hasbro-era seasons.

From until its discontinuation in , Jetix aired reruns of the series, branded as Power Rangers Generations, and showcasing select episodes from Mighty Morphin through Dino Thunder.

's Power Rangers Jungle Fury was originally set to be the final season, but due to obligations with Bandai, Disney produced one more season: Power Rangers RPM.[21] An article in The New Zealand Herald published on March 7, , identified RPM as the last season of the Power Rangers run. Production manager Sally Campbell stated in an interview, "at this stage we will not be shooting another season."[22][23] A September 1, , revision to Disney A to Z: The Official Encyclopedia by Disney's head archivist Dave Smith states that "production of new episodes [of Power Rangers] ceased in ".[24] Production of Power Rangers ceased and the last[update] series by BVS Entertainment, RPM, ended on December 26, [22]

On October 1, , Bandai released a press release that Disney would re-broadcast Mighty Morphin Power Rangers starting in January on ABC Kids in lieu of a new series using footage from the Super Sentai television series. A new toy line accompanied the series and appeared in stores in the later part of [14][25][26] On August 14, , ABC's over-the air Power Rangers telecasts ended on the network's West Coast affiliates due to programming preemptions; the network stopped broadcasting the program altogether two weeks later on August 28, and subsequently returned the program's time slot to its affiliates.

On May 12, , Haim Saban bought back the Power Rangers franchise from Disney for $43&#;million and announced plans to produce a new season of the television series.[27][28][29] The eighteenth season, Samurai, began airing on Nickelodeon on February 7, ,[28][30] with the previous episodes beginning rebroadcast on Nicktoons later that year.[30][31][32] It was also announced that Saban plans to make a new Power Rangers movie.[33]

On July 2, , it was announced that Saban Brands would launch a Saturday morning cartoon block on The CW, called Vortexx, on August 25, , that would air Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.[34][35][36][37][38] The series was removed before the season even finished, ending up doing so on the Vortexx website. The block itself ended in fall

To commemorate the series' 20th anniversary, Nickelodeon began airing Power Rangers Megaforce on February 2, , featuring all of the past rangers from the series' year history in the last episode of the season. On October 1, , Saban Brands announced that it had extended agreements with Nickelodeon and Bandai America Incorporated through for its globally recognized Power Rangers franchise.[39]The 90s Are All That aired Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as part of Mighty Morphin Weekend in

In May , Saban Brands and Lionsgate announced that they are planning to produce a new Power Rangers feature film, and would hopefully launch a Power Rangers film franchise.[40] The movie, titled simply Power Rangers, was released on March 24, , with mixed reviews and a failure at the box office, as a result, the future of a cinematographic universe for the franchise is uncertain. RJ Cyler, who starred in Power Rangers stated on August 20, , that Hasbro has yet to announce any plans for a movie sequel.[41] On July 11, , during a Reddit AMA, Dacre Montgomery revealed that the studio had plans to produce a second reboot, without him and the rest of the cast and the director returning.[42] On December 13, , it was reported that Jonathan Entwistle is in early talks to direct the reboot, with Patrick Burleigh being set to write the screenplay. The plot will reportedly involve time travel and will be set in the s.[43]

In January , Saban and Nickelodeon extended their broadcast partnership through [44] In February , the companies announced that Power Rangers would continue airing on Nickelodeon through [45] Hasbro's long term plans for the franchise include introducing a Power Rangers cinematic universe with tied-in television, films, and many other forms of entertainment to accompany the main series of traditional Super Sentai adaptations. In late April , actor Chance Perez announced in an interview that a second season of Dino Fury (and the twenty-ninth season overall) would premiere on Netflix in , which would be the first season of the show to air exclusively online through a streaming service. However, Netflix would respond that they "do not have anything to announce for season two at the moment." Meanwhile, new episodes of the series moved to the streamer on June 15, [46]

Television series

Main article: List of Power Rangers episodes

The first six seasons (beginning with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and ending with In Space) followed an overarching, evolving storyline. The second season began the annual tradition of the Rangers acquiring new Zords to battle enemies while the core suits from the first season were used, except for that of the White Ranger. With the fourth season, Zeo, Power Rangers began following the Super Sentai series' practice of annual Ranger suit changes.

Although the seventh season, Lost Galaxy, had ties with the preceding season, it was otherwise the first season to follow a self-contained story, as would later seasons of the show up until the seventeenth, RPM. The season also began the tradition of team-up episodes featuring Rangers, villains, and other characters from past seasons.

Beginning with the eighteenth season, Samurai, the show returned to a multi-season format similar to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, with self-contained storylines told across two seasons each. During its second season, and the twenty-seventh season overall, Beast Morphers would later reveal itself to be a direct sequel to RPM.

Feature films

The Power Rangers franchise has also generated three theatrical motion pictures. The first two are distributed by 20th Century Fox, and the third film released in by Lionsgate.

Distribution

Power Rangers has long had success in international markets and continues to air in many countries, with the exception of New Zealand, where the series filming takes place as of [update]. As of , Power Rangers aired at least 65 times a week in more than 40 worldwide markets.[60] Many markets carry or have carried the series on their respective Fox or later Jetix/Disney XD channels or have syndicated the program on regional children's channels or blocks, either dubbed into the local language or broadcast in the original English. Since the acquisition by Saban Brands, international television distribution rights for Power Rangers have been managed by MarVista Entertainment until early[61][62][63]

Broadcast in East Asian territories has been treated differently from in other international markets due to the prevalence and familiarity of 'the Super Sentai brand originating in Japan. Power Rangers was briefly banned in Malaysia for supposedly encouraging the use of drugs because it contained the word "Morphin'" in its title, which could be associated with morphine. The show eventually aired without the offending word.[64] In Japan, many Power Rangers television seasons and movies were dubbed into Japanese for television and video with the voice actors often pulled from past Super Sentai casts, leading to the English-dubbed action sequences being "re-dubbed" or "restored" back to Japanese as well. Power Rangers Mystic Force is the latest season to be broadcast in Japan on Toei Channel in January , with the Magiranger cast voicing their counterparts. After broadcast of Power Rangers ended in South Korea with Wild Force, Bandai of Korea started airing dubbed Super Sentai series under the 파워레인저(Power Ranger) brand on JEI TV. Some seasons of Super Sentai broadcast in South Korea have similarly named titles as their American counterparts, such as Power Ranger Dino Thunder[65] for Abaranger in and Power Ranger S.P.D.[66] in place of Dekaranger.

Notes

  1. ^As the series progresses, one or more of the Rangers will usually receive motorcycles for long-distance travel, as well as individual Zords. In many series, a Ranger is also given additional Zords or weapons. In some cases, one Ranger may receive something that other Rangers do not; an example is the Battlizer given to the Red Ranger of each series since Power Rangers in Space (until Operation Overdrive).
  2. ^Public servants (rescue squad, police officers, etc.) appearing as Rangers disregard this convention in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, Power Rangers S.P.D., Power Rangers Operation Overdrive and Power Rangers RPM.
  3. ^An original Power Ranger, the Titanium Ranger, was created especially for Lightspeed Rescue to add a sixth Power Ranger to the series.
  4. ^Other color designations include metallic colors, violet, and "Shadow", as well as protagonists who have powers and costumes similar to those of the Rangers but are not called "Power Rangers", such as the Blue Senturion and Magna Defender.
  5. ^A joke highlighted this correlation in Dino Thunder when Tommy Oliver (a former Green Ranger, White Ranger, and Red Ranger) became the new Black Ranger; he said that he had to go shopping because he did not own enough black-colored clothing.

Power Rangers, that show about teens who turn into superheros in colorful helmets, has been on the air in one form or another since That's 25 years of TV shows and three movies. Let that sink in for a second.

As the series celebrates its 25th anniversary, former CNET editor Luke Lancaster, who watched Power Rangers as a kid, and associate editor Mike Sorrentino, a longtime fan, cast their gaze back over those decades of morphin' action. By which we mean, Luke tries to guess what's going on based on the show's increasingly obscure titles, and Mike tells us what each version of the show was actually about.

Let's see which makes more sense

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers ()

Luke: The O.G. Rangers. The Rangers of my childhood. The original teens with attitude, which does honestly seem like a pretty poor prerequisite for recruiting a superhero team. Are they even legally allowed behind the wheel of those giant robots?

Mike: Yep, if a year-old were actually given the keys to a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex, we should all run! Power Rangers is based off the Japanese TV show Super Sentai, which has been continuously broadcasting since MMPR scenes with the teens were shot in the US, then intercut with fight footage from Super Sentai.

This original Mighty Morphin lineup pitted the colorfully costumed kids against the villainous Rita Repulsa in hand-to-hand combat and in their dino-themed Zord vehicles. We also meet the evil green ranger Tommy, who eventually comes over to the right side.

This is the series that kicked off a show that's still on today -- 24 seasons divided into 20 different themed series, not to mention two movies. The show is so classic that instead of producing a new series in , 32 episodes of this original series were "re-mastered" with new graphics and put on the air.

Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers ()

Luke: I thought I had seen more Rangers than just the first series, but I was mistaken. I assume these are still teens with attitude who can transform into ninjas in motorcycle helmets. They just happen to be from a different planet?

Mike: Sort of. This short, episode series bridges the third season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers into the next series Power Rangers Zeo. Time on Earth gets reversed by an "Orb of Doom", leaving the previous Ranger team too young to save the world. Billy is able to become an adult again, but just as that happens, the Power Coins that give the Rangers their powers are destroyed. Luckily, Zordon calls up his friends on the planet of Aquitar, who happen to be a Power Ranger team too. They protect the world while everyone else tracks down pieces of the Zeo Crystal, which restores the Earth back to its original time.

Luke: Sure, that makes sense.

Power Rangers Zeo ()

Luke: I misread that as "Zero". I was going to make a Smashing Pumpkin joke. Instead, I'll guess this is when Power Rangers decides to go full expanded universe and dump a whole bunch of interconnected backstory and lore.

Mike: Nope, they manage to keep the story going. That Zeo Crystal from Alien Rangers brought the Earth back to and serves as the new power source for the five rangers. Other highlights include Blue Ranger Billy taking on a technical advisor role instead of being a Ranger, a new villain in the form of the Machine Empire and (fresh from a "peace conference") the return of original Red Ranger Jason who becomes the new Gold Ranger.

Power Rangers Turbo ()

Luke: They replace the animal Zords with cars, right? I'm going to guess the Megazord is just a big car.

Mike: Yep! This was also the only Power Rangers season to get its kickoff from a movie. Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, in which an intergalactic pirate kidnaps a wizard so she can marry a demon, saw the Blue Ranger role transfer to a kid named Justin, who seems to grow a foot taller every time he morphs.

The subsequent show is also when Power Rangers cleaned house, as Zordon, Alpha 5, Tommy, Adam, Kat and Tanya all left the series. And yes, everyone got replaced (meet Alpha 6). Plus, the Rangers get baked into a pizza!

Power Rangers in Space ()

Luke: I feel like I'm cheating this one. It has to be the Power Rangers go to space. If I'm wrong I don't know what's true anymore.

Mike: Funny thing about that They didn't actually spend much time in space at all during this series. Hoping to rescue a captured Zordon, the remaining Rangers hijack a space shuttle for their rescue mission. They end up on the Astro Megaship where they meet Andros, the Red Space Ranger, who gives the rest of the team new Ranger powers. Then they spend most of their time protecting Earth.

Ultimately, this series actually serves as the conclusion of the Power Rangers story that started in , ending with (warning: year-old SPOILER ALERT) Zordon sacrificing himself to save the universe. Yes, Zordon is dead.

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy ()

Luke: This has to be a direct continuation of Power Rangers in Space, right? Only they get lost. But Lost in Space was obviously taken. Danger, Will Robinson.

Mike: In a way, you're completely right. This is the first Power Rangers series that isn't directly connected to the previous season. It's a move that follows the pattern of Super Sentai, which changes up its cast and suits every year. However, there's plenty of fallout from Power Rangers In Space, connecting ideas and carryover cast members (Bulk and Alpha 6 are still around).

A new Power Rangers team protects a space colony that is seeking out a new place for humans to live. This show was also the first time a Ranger was killed in the show, as Pink Ranger actress Valerie Vernon needed to depart following a leukemia diagnosis in real life. They ultimately brought the character back, but not until the end of the season.

Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue ()

Luke: I'm going for the trifecta here, saying this rounded out the trilogy. Because how else do you save someone in a Lost Galaxy?

Mike: Wrong, although the Lost Galaxy Rangers make a cameo. This series brings the action back to Earth, and is the first series where the Power Rangers don't hide their identities. It's also the first in the series to feature a Ranger that wasn't first a character on the Japanese "Super Sentai" series -- the Titanium Ranger was created just for this show.

Power Rangers Time Force ()

Luke: I guess TARDIS is the other way to save them. Crossover with Doctor Who?

Mike: It's definitely a timey-wimey season. The Time Force Rangers, who are a kind of time police, travel back a thousand years to to chase after the mutant Ransik, who seemingly kills off the Red Ranger. So the team finds the present-day ancestor of the Red Ranger, and give him the power instead.

Power Rangers Wild Force ()

Luke: Seriously how many of these are there?

Mike: You'll also start noticing the recycling of themes -- this won't be the last animal-themed Ranger season.

Luke: In this one I'm going to guess these Power Rangers get their powers from a zoo. A magic zoo.

Mike: Close -- a turtle-shaped island floating in the sky. This season is also notable for its Forever Red crossover episode, which brings together nearly every Red Ranger ever in one giant battle to stop the Machine Empire from turning back on Lord Zedd's Serpentera Zord.

Also, following a buyout by Disney, this is the first series in which the Power Rangers are a part of the Walt Disney company. Over the course of Disney's ownership, the Rangers even made appearances at Disney theme parks. The company sold the franchise back to original owner Haim Saban in

Power Rangers Ninja Storm ()

Luke: I remember the '96 movie had ninjas as a thing. I'm gonna guess one of those Rangers came back as their sensei.

Mike: Oh man, you're only one season off with that guess! This was the first season filmed in New Zealand, where the show is still made today. In another format change, this season begins with a team of just three Rangers before eventually growing to include three more.

Power Rangers Dino Thunder ()

Luke: Did they have cars as Zords all this time, and now they finally have dinosaurs again? (For the record, only three of the original five Zords were actually dinosaurs. That still bothers me).

Mike: Zords are always just giant cars. And in this season, nearly every Zord is based on a dinosaur as opposed to a Saber-toothed cat or a Mastodon. But more importantly, Tommy Oliver is back, and he's now the Black Ranger! The fabled former Green Ranger has become a paleontology professor, and serves as a mentor-like figure at first before morphin once again. Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to be dating either former Pink Ranger Kimberly or Kat, though (sorry shippers!).

Power Rangers S.P.D. ()

Luke: Power Rangers meets European politics? I don't know what else S.P.D. stands for.

Mike: Space Patrol Delta! This series takes place in , where humans now live and work together with alien species like in Mass Effect. This season has no less than 14 Power Rangers, divided into an A-Squad and B-Squad. The A group disappears, so we spend most of the time with the B-Squad as they protect the Earth from the Troobian Empire and investigate what became of their higher-ranked colleagues.

Power Rangers Mystic Force ()

Luke: Clearly the attempt to cash in on Pottermania. The Rangers leave behind Angel Grove and go to a boarding school similar to, yet legally distinct from, Hogwarts.

Mike: Break out the magic and the capes! Yes, the Power Rangers are now essentially wizards, and the morphers have become flip phones. And all five actors playing the core Rangers are of Australian or New Zealand descent for the first time.

Power Rangers Operation Overdrive ()

Luke: The Rangers split their time between defending the world and trying to pass Driver's Ed. It culminates in a two-part road trip episode. Ultimately the bad guys are defeated because they don't know how to drive stick.

Mike: This series is a bit more like Power Rangers meets the Uncharted video game series. The Rangers on this team are specifically picked to race around the world discovering magical jewels before the gems fall into the wrong hands. And in a late-series twist, the Red Ranger is revealed to be an android instead of a human.

Luke: Gasp!

Power Rangers Jungle Fury ()

Luke: After 25 years, Alpha 5 discovers that the "attitude" that all these teenagers were afflicted with was actually a tropical disease contracted on a trip to the darkest parts of the Amazon.

Mike: No Alpha 5 in sight, I'm afraid. These animal-themed Rangers use sunglasses to morph, operating out of a pizza joint. Fun fact: Red Ranger actor Jason Smith once co-starred with Thor actor Chris Hemsworth back when they were on Australia's Home and Away soap opera.

Power Rangers RPM ()

Luke: It's another car one, right? But I'm gonna say this is where it crosses over with The Fast and the Furious. Vin Diesel would make an excellent Power Ranger.

Mike: More like Terminator: Salvation. This show takes place in a very post-apocalyptic version of Earth, and the Rangers of this show are protecting the last city on the planet that is protected from its toxic atmosphere. Dicey premise aside, this show's alumni includes Eka Darville, who later played Malcolm Ducasse on Marvel's Jessica Jones series, and Rose McIver, who now has the lead role on iZombie.

Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai ()

Luke: The Rangers, in the strangest series yet, break through the fourth wall and go to Japan to see where Super Sentai was made.

Mike: The show returned after , the one year there wasn't a brand new Power Rangers series. This new Power Rangers team are using phones to morph again, and the only thing "Super" for the back half of their story is a Super Samurai mode the Rangers unlock.

A big bright spot to this season was the return of Paul Schrier, in the comic relief role of Bulk from the first few seasons. While Jason Narvy's Skull only makes a cameo in the final episode, the reunion has a nice nostalgic payoff. This season is also the first that Haim Saban took control over after buying the franchise back from Disney.

Power Rangers Megaforce () and Power Rangers Super Megaforce ()

Luke: OK guys, we get it. You're just stringing impressive-sounding words together now. Are you going full Apple and just adding an S to last year's model?

Mike: This was probably a tough one for the producers to name. For the first time since perhaps the Mighty Morphin era, one Power Rangers team needed to use the suits and powers from two different Super Sentai television series. And one of those series was Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, a giant anniversary series in which the team can transform into every Power Ranger ever.

The result for the US adaptation were frenetic battles in which Rangers would change from their base suit into those from the Mighty Morphin, Turbo, Lost Galaxy and Wild Force eras, all in the same battle. The season culminated in a gigantic battle that also featured every Ranger ever, including the return of Jason David Frank as Tommy in his Green Ranger suit.

As an aside, I wanted to be the Green Super Megaforce Ranger for Halloween in , but that costume wasn't being sold in an adult size.

Power Rangers Dino Charge () and Power Rangers Dino Super Charge ()

Luke: Oh. You really are doing the S thing. Though I guess the dinosaurs are back now? Or do they go back in time and fight real dinosaurs? I'd like to see a T. rex do karate.

Mike: This team of Rangers are seeking out the Energems -- jewels that power the Rangers' superpowers and are apparently a "fountain of youth." For instance, Koda the Blue Ranger is a ,year-old cave dweller who didn't age after finding the Blue Energem. Later in the series, the Red Ranger meets his long-lost father who also hasn't aged at all due to an Energem, making the father-son duo look more like brothers.

Power Rangers Ninja Steel ()

Luke: Wasn't there already one with this name?

Mike: This brings us up to date. The current series starts off pretty dark: a boy named Brody gets kidnapped by aliens, and remains lost for 10 years before finally escaping back to Earth. On his way out, he steals an item that lets him and two other new friends become Power Rangers.

Power Rangers: Super Ninja Steel ()

Luke: They really are just moving words around!

Mike: This exact title pattern continues. This series will be the 25th anniversary of Power Rangers. It'll feature a special episode that brings popular Rangers from past seasons kicking their way back into the limelight.

Luke: I might even recognise some of them

Editors' note: From here on out, updates will be handled by Mike alone, but Power Rangers remains as fun and strange as ever.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers ()

Mike:Beast Morphers will be the first Power Rangers series made after Hasbro purchased the franchise in May as part of a $ million cash and stock deal. It's also the first Power Rangers series to adapt a previously skipped Sentai series: Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.

Beast Morphers will kick off with three Power Rangers (but as usual, expect that cast to grow in time). While production is early on the show, the series synopsis says that this team will be created when a secret agency combines a substance called "Morph-X" with animal DNA. These leather-suited Rangers will be charged with defending the source of all Power Rangers power: the Morphin Grid.

So there you have it -- 25 years of morphin' history. Because let's be real, you probably tuned out after one of the many, many power transfers.

First published March 25, at 5 a.m. PT and updated as more Power Rangers series get announced.
