Justice League and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers have existed in separate universes – until now! DC, Boom! Studios, and Saban Brands announced that the two iconic teams will “combine their powers” in a six-issue monthly miniseries that hits January 11, 2017.
The official press release has confirmed that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern John Stewart, the Flash, and Cyborg, meet the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when Zack the Black Ranger finds himself in an alternate universe. You have to love the use of the classic multiverse concept!
What might be most interesting about this is not the story possibilities, but who is bringing this series to life. Tom Taylor was announced as writer, Stephen Byrne as artist, and Karl Kerschl drawing the covers. I’m also excited to see the six variant covers, too!
