HyperForce Rangers Return In New Power Rangers Unlimited Comic Book

The Power Rangers hit a major milestone in 2023 with this year being the 30th anniversary of the franchise. To celebrate we just got the 30th anniversary special, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always, that came out on Netflix. Continuing the anniversary celebration BOOM! Studios announced a new one-shot coming out in July 19, 2023, titled Power Rangers Unlimited: HyperForce.

The series will bring back the fan-favorite HyperForce Rangers from the beloved TTRPG 25 episode web-series that aired on Twitch in 2018 to BOOM! Studios Power Rangers comic book line. Power Rangers Unlimited: HyperForce will be co-written by current Mighty Morpin Power Rangers and Radiat Pink writer Melissa Flores and acclaimed writer and voice of the HyperForce Pink Ranger in the HyperForce RPG, Meghan Camarena (Radiant Pink, Radiant Black). Flores and Camarena will work alongside with artist Federico Sabbatini (Moon Knight, The Dead Lucky) and colorist Bryan Valenza (Witchblade, Ghost Rider).

Based on the BOOM! Studios teaser for Power Rangers Unlimited: HyperForce one-shot will be building on what Flores and Simona Di Gianfelice current run on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Specifically, the developments around Dark Specter and Rita Repulsa’s transformation into Mistress Vile. The teaser information for Power Rangers Unlimited: HyperForce includes:

Mistress Vile, formerly known as Rita Repulsa, and Dark Specter have invaded the Morphin Grid! As the dark contagion spreads and puts the Rangers in their most vulnerable state yet, the HyperForce Rangers will have to scour the multiverse for as many unexpected allies as they can, while they’re pushed to their limits…

Speaking on working for this new Power Rangers Unlimited one-shot co-writer Melissa Flores said “HYPERFOOORCE! It’s nearly impossible to put into words how excited I am to be revisiting the special group of chaotic misfits that is the HyperForce team with Meghan, Federico and BOOM! Studios. I’ve never forgotten the incredible amount of love the TTRPG series received from the fans, and I’m so thankful to be able to pay back just a little bit of that with a new adventure for them in this medium.”

Along with co-writing the Massive Verse series Radiant Pink with Flores, Meghan Camarena is no stranger to working in the Power Rangers franchise. Camarena voices Kimberly Hart in the Battle for the Grid video game and played Pink HyperForce Ranger Chloe Ashford in the HyperForce web series.

Speaking about the one-shot Camarena said “WE DID IT! HyperForce lives thanks to the incredible Melissa Flores, Frederico Sabbatini, and BOOM! Studios. Together, we’re telling the HyperForce tale right where it left off and you’re never going to guess where it takes us. Thank you to the fans for always believing in these characters and waiting for us to finish the story. It’s meant so much to me to bring Chloe back to life and I can hardly wait for you to read what she’s been up to!”

Joining Camarena and Flores is the talented Federico Sabbatini, whose worked on various Amazing Spider-Man, Moon Knight, and Star Wars comics to name a few. “Working on Power Rangers is a dream come true! I’ve been a huge fan of the series since when I was a child and I wish I could tell the Federico of twenty years ago that this day was going to come,” said Sabbatini. “Working with Melissa and Meghan was amazing, we are a great team!”
