COMIC BOOK REVIEW - Justice League/Power Rangers
There come very few moments in popular culture when people from two different fandoms can come together to enjoy some form of media. However, when you’re a fan of both fandoms in a crossover, things get pretty out of hand. I remember when this novel was announced, I genuinely thought I was dreaming!
‘Justice League/Power Rangers’ starts off in the Power Rangers universe, where the Rangers find out that Alpha has gone missing. However, this is simply a ploy for Lord Zedd to get into the Command Centre. Following a fight with Zack, the Black Ranger, both he and Zack get transported to a new universe. Enter the Justice League who want to help the Rangers fight Zedd and get back. But Lord Zedd discovers a new ally in the DC universe, one who is extremely intent on collecting Angel Grove for his personal collection.
The plot in the novel I found was a bit basic, but given that this was more a Power Rangers story rather than a DC Comics story, that didn’t surprise me. There wasn’t much in terms of character development, but I can’t deny that it was a cool crossover.
The artwork was very simple and extremely cartoon-like which was completely appropriate for the novel. The covers were also pretty good, this one above is my favourite. Overall, a dream come true, is it too much to ask for another one?
I mean he does have a valid point! Haha!
There were a lot to choose from, but Zack, the Black Power Ranger, I think was by far the most influential character in the novel.
Story Arc: ★★★½
Character Development: ★★½
