Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107 Review

Things have certainly been picking up for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics as of late. Which is saying a lot considering how we continue to go from one big event after another in this series. It has spoken to the work of Melissa Flores and Simona Di Gianfelice that Rita Repulsa’s transformation into Mistress Vile has felt like a big deal. Even with both the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Omega Rangers working together it hasn’t been enough. Now how do things turn out next? Let’s see with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107.

“Zedd is more powerful than ever, while Grace’s second in command keeps a past plan alive, which may provide a cutting edge in the battle with Dark Specter… or prove to be the Rangers’ undoing. Meanwhile, Mistress Vile finds the ultimate use for the Vessel, whose identity finally comes to light!” – BOOM! Studios


If you thought that things couldn’t get worse for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Omega Rangers than this latest issue of MMPR is proof it can. There is almost no time to process everything going on as you read Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107.

One of the aspects of this Recharged Era story that Melissa Flores and Simona Di Gianfelice are nailing is tapping into different storylines from the Power Rangers’ Zordon Era. Here the most obvious one we see is the Green With Evil Saga as we see that Mistress Vile turned Matthew Cook into her new evil Green Dragon Ranger. But the reminders of classic Power Rangers stories does not stop there. Not only do we get more hints at Dark Specter but also elements from the Shattered Grid, Unlimited Power, and The Eltarian War storylines.

Flores utilizes all these other Power Rangers plotlines together in a way that keeps you guessing about what is going to happen next. There is a twist on everything that is built off what has been done before. Lord Zedd’s new form or the evil Green Ranger are examples of this as they go in directions that you may not expect. It’s in creating this sense of surprise that helps elevate this story with Mistress Vile have an epic scale.

This all works in with the idea of how the threats both Power Rangers team face continue to evolve. With having both the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Omega Rangers around Rita has been elevated to challenge them as Mistress Vile. Throughout this issue we see how overwhelming of a threat Mistress Vile and the forces she has accumulated are. Which all leaves you wondering if the Rangers will be able to overcome everything that is thrown their way.

In the middle of all this we continue to get a lot of great character moments. Once again Flores is slowly building up the relationship between Trini and Zack, a callback to the possible future for the two seen in the Power Rangers: Pink comic book. There’s also a cool scene with Jason and Tommy having a match that is a reminder of their friendship. Grounded scenes like this help balance out the larger-than-life stuff all these teens are involved in.

Gianfelice artwork is just as strong as Flores’ writing. With Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107 filled with action Gianfelice is able to showcase how each fight is different. The different players involved in each fight make the battle take on a different tone. This adds into the twists the story delivers. Then you add in Raul Angulo coloring and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107 continues the great animated look this series is known for.


The work by Melissa Flores and Simona Di Gianfelice on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is on another level. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #107 was yet another example of this fact. There was almost no moment to take in what just happened as when you turn the page there is something big that happened not long after. Every character from the Power Rangers to the villains they face are given big moments. This is an all-around excellent comic book.
