They’re faster than you. Smarter than you. But they’re evil. The Psycho Rangers were one of the most memorable parts of Power Rangers in Space, facing off against the Rangers over a series of episodes. Nearly defeating the Rangers several times, they were barely defeated. They were later revived in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy before falling again, but not before Psycho Pink killed Kendrix, the Pink Lost Galaxy Ranger.
Recently a new Psycho Ranger was added to the mix in the comics, Psycho Green. Given an origin as one of the original Supersonic Rangers, Psycho Green faced off against a team of Rangers in 1969. As reported by ComicBook.com, now they’re all back in an original graphic novel from Boom! Written by Paul Allor (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) with art by Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon artist Marcelo Costa and a cover by Diego Galindo, which you can see below.
The official description of the comic is incredibly delightful for longtime fans.
“In Saban’s Power Rangers: The Psycho Path, the struggle between good and evil goes galactic as secret origins are revealed and lives are changed forever in this epic original graphic novel story that delves deep into the origins and motivations of the ultimate adversaries of the Power Rangers, the Psycho Rangers! They’re are faster, stronger, and smarter…but evil. Created by Karone when she was still the evil Astronema, the Psycho Rangers were programmed with overwhelming hate for all things Power Rangers. They were defeated at great personal cost by the Power Rangers, but now someone has brought them back and they are more murderous than ever before.
Who brought these monstrous, twisted Rangers back, and why? And can Karone, the former Lost Galaxy Pink Ranger, and her brother Andros, the Red In Space Ranger, stop the Psychos before they bring the universe to its knees?”
How did the Psycho Rangers comic back to life? More importantly, why does Karone have the Savage Sword? Wasn’t that destroyed in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy? Only time will tell and we can’t wait to see. After the comics have given the lions share of their focus to Tommy, the original Green Ranger, it’s nice some non MMPR characters are getting the spotlight. Below you’ll also find more images of Andros and Karone from the comic.
We hope this comic takes into account ‘The Trial of Astronema’ story by Trey Moore from the Power Rangers Anniversary special issue, since it was such a huge turning point for the character in her dealing with her past. We’ve also got a new photo of Psycho Green!
