Actor Samuell Benta sets the record straight about the banner controversy at Power Morphicon.

Back in 2007, the first Power Morphicon took place in Los Angeles. The Ranger from Operation Overdrive was there amongst many other past Rangers. There has always been a rumor floating around the community that a banner for the Make-A-Wish Foundation was signed by all of the Rangers in attendance, but ended up getting stolen by a Power Ranger of all people. The culprit was allegedly Operation Overdrive Ranger, Samuell Benta.

Samuell Benta played Will Aston, the Black Ranger in Operation Overdrive. Will was a highly-skilled spy using hi-tech gadgets and was also quite the ladies man. Ironically, Will was a thief that companies would hire to test out how good their security systems were. The rumor has been in the community for a while. Benta has never spoken publicly about the situation, nor has he ever attended a Power Morphicon since.
