Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
*Each of the Power Rangers experience an initial boost to their physical abilities once they are exposed to the Energy of the Morphing Grid; this results in a 20x to 30x amplification to their baseline Strength, Speed and Durability. Their senses and agility also undergo a less potent enhancement. Once their morphing devices are used to activate their armor, their abilities are increased by another 5x, and they are “downloaded” with the knowledge of how to use their weapons and Zord vehicles.
Each Ranger has significant proficiency in hand to hand combat, melee weapon combat (usually specialized to two or three types of weapons), hand-held firearms, and other specialized weapons that they can utilize while not piloting their Zords. Their Zords are highly futuristic vehicles that have a variety of onboard systems arrays, which provide number of different capacities: Energy and “Armored” attacks, specialized sensor equipment, and the ability to combine into a gestalt mechanical Anthropomorphic Robot.

The original Black Ranger was Zack Taylor. He later passed his powers to Adam Park.
