Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return #1 marks the start of a new storyline as the Boom! Studios comic series continues the original team like they never left. Amy Jo Johnson was revealed to be the writer for the new series as part of the 30th anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise, working with co-writer Matt Hotson. Art has already been teased by the comic artist Nico Leon, with concept art by Dan Mora revealed during San Diego Comic-Con 2023. The new story featured in the 30th Anniversary special comic as the first teaser to the new timeline, with a Boom! Direct Reserve Campaign released on Kickstarter.

The art for the new Green Ranger was revealed by the concept art shared on social media by the team behind the comic series. The character was originally teased in the new cover art by David Mack, which was revealed by the Boom! Direct Reserve Kickstarter Campaign.

Fans get a better look at the new female Green Ranger, revealed to be named Olivia Hart. Details of Olivia Hart have yet to be revealed but many fans have noticed a likeness to Jason David Frank’s Daughter, Jenna Frank.

The backstory for the character has yet to be revealed, but this is likely the daughter born of the relationship between Tommy and Kimberly in this version of events. The original timeline featured JJ Oliver as the son of Tommy Oliver and Katherine Hillard-Oliver, who fully debuted in Saban’s Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon graphic novel.

JJ gained his father’s powers as a type of inheritance to mark the retirement of Tommy and Jason David Frank’s legacy. Olivia Hart is likely a counterpart that has a big role within the story that Amy Jo Johnson is forging with Matt Hotson.

JJ was reportedly planned to debut in the 30th Season, Power Rangers Cosmic Fury, with Charlie Kersh’s Minh Kwan, but was ultimately changed to keep Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always separate. As many stories in the comics and live-action series have used alternate dimensions, it would be amazing to see if Olivia Hart will make an appearance again after the comic series concludes. Hasbro is currently focusing on the reboot as the next upcoming release coming to Netflix, but it will be exciting to see what Johnson envisions for her character’s daughter.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return #1 will be released on February 7, 2024, which marks the start of the new Boom! Studios comic series. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return Boom! Direct Reserve Campaign is currently still active, with limited edition collectibles still available until the Kickstarter ends.

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
