Dark Warrior

Revisiting Power Rangers is a project which compares the video of the original airings of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with that of the reversioned ones which aired on ABC Kids in 2010. For the most part, we leave it to the fan to make their own (educated) decisions on whether the changes are improvements or not.

Opening credits, featuring 5 Rangers posing in front of Power Coin symbolsDespite having a production number greater than that of the Green With Evil saga, this episode originally aired prior to the introduction of the Green Ranger. In 1993, obviously, no mention was made of Tommy, who isn’t in the episode. In 2010... well, they already changed the intro, so let’s keep using the new one?[Scene Missing]
