Within the first six pages of Boom’s new Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, the teen heroes declare that it’s “Morphin’ Time” and hold out the small handheld devices that transform them into the Power Rangers. It’s a moment that is ripped straight from the TV series so cleanly, I almost felt like a kid again.
The new, big-screen Power Rangers movie is beginning to take shape. Casting is being announced every few days and now we may have an idea what the film’s official title is.
If you look at the picture above, you probably think of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, costumed heroes who have been kicking their way across TV in different incarnations for nearly 20 years—but you’d be wrong. These are actually the Zyurangers, the stars of a Japanese TV series that inadvertently spawned a global…
It’s been a long time since the Power Rangers team that started it all has graced TV screens, but with a movie reboot on the horizon and 22 seasons of Super Sentai antics under its belt across various incarnations, the original teenagers with attitude are making a welcome return to comics.
It's been nearly a quarter century, and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are still going strong. But what if they had a darker, more edgy reboot? Here's some fan art from concept artist Eddie del Rio (Godzilla) that imagines what that would look like.
Seriously, they're as nostalgia-inducing as their heads are massive, by which I mean to say they're incredibly nostalgia-inducing. But look how cute they are!
If you were obsessed with television 20-odd years ago, then you probably have a soft spot in your heart for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the show that introduced the Japanese Super Sentai series to American audiences with an all-American cast (whenever the helmets were off.) And it's hard to believe that original…
I hate it when Hot Topic makes something brilliant, but this Pink Power Ranger bikini is admittedly kind of brilliant. I foresee a great many nerd girls picking this up, perhaps posting photos of themselves wearing it on the Internet, and causing a great deal of stupid arguments about whether they're "real nerds" or…
Once upon a time, my brother and I entered a Power Rangers/VR Troopers trivia contest on Prodigy. TV junkies that we were, we handily answered all the questions, but, sadly, when our names came up in the drawing, we received the inferior VR Troopers action figures instead of the much cooler, dino-centric Power Rangers…
The Power Rangers are coming back for their 19th (!) season, and the good news is their suits no longer color-coded according to their ethnicity. (Watch this amazing College Humor video for more on how that came about originally.)
Here's the latest trailer for the fantastic new Ultraman movie, in which he faces off against roughly a billion spaceships. The trailer features pirates (in classic 18th-century garb), laser eyes, and a robot hand that crushes an entire planet!
It's time for another io9 flashback, with this awesome video remix of every scene we could find where a human punches an alien. Set to L.L. Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out," for maximum impact!
It's been a long road for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. And last week Zordon finally decided that the Rangers were through, forever. The Power Rangers ended their series with the 700th episode. We'll miss Billy and his overalls most.
If there's one thing that this week's premieres of Heroes and Smallville collectively proved, it's that television really shouldn't try and tackle superheroes. Here's even more proof why - as well as some rare examples of when it does work.
Battlestar Galactica's post-apocalyptic leader, Edward James Olmos, races his sportscar through a world of flying cars, elevated trains and missile-firing rocket bikes, in this commercial for Farmers Insurance. Olmos has been appearing in Spanish/English Farmers ads for a while now, but this one features CGI…
