Read the first four issues, killer read if you're a nostalgic fan of the mmpr or even remotely interested in trying something new. The great part is the series doesn't directly follow a script of the tv series canon. Higgins takes the wheel creating something fresh and layered while somehow managing to retain the identity of the show.

This ain't your little brother's Power Rangers.. but it still crushes, in 2016. The way Stranger Things did. Things kick off with Tommy, aka the Green Ranger joining the team as it's newest member and follows his inner struggles with keeping Rita's dark influence in check as he juggles school, relationships and field work as a ranger. The Bulk and Skull mini features are especially humorous. Dare to be impressed, give it a shot.

I don't know if I can even say it's for nostalgia because the series takes place in modern times instead of the 90s. IMO, very stupid especially since it's not new reader friendly.

I hope this one is as epic as the fight with Doomsday or Eradicator. But this is current Superman so it's guaranteed to be good.

Back on topic, this looks promising. I'll add Thanos to the tiny list of Marvel comics I'll read some day.

@outside_85: What exactly is wrong with a white boys' sausage fest? Most superhero comics are made in America, a country with mostly white people, have stories taking place there, and are mostly written by white guys. Did you go into tantrums every time you watched anime because it is mostly Japanese characters?

The so-called white Marvel had much better writing than this left-wing Disney-fied garbage we have now that is only pissing off its longtime fans. I'm not even white and I hate everything the company has reduced itself to.

There's nothing wrong with wanting a more diversified cast but doing it unrealistically is both stupid and damaging.

I wonder if Elastigirl is gonna make an appearance. She's always the one getting left out. Do writers think she was too powerful or too normal? Not that it's gonna ruin the comic and I do consider Doom Patrol one of the best going on in DC right now.

How is this even fair? Superman, WW, Flash, Aquaman can each solo the this team.

Vs. comic events/storylines always end with both sides fighting a bigger villain. Very tired cliche but that is almost guaranteed to happen.

At this point it's commonplace for race/gender changes on superheroes. Who even cares anymore. As long as it's a good story.

You won't be saying that if Black Panther became a redneck white guy.


DC beating Marvel in sales speaks for itself (keep in mind that they're not far apart in their period of revamps). It's also worth mentioning that Old Man Logan, Amazing Spider-Man, and Captain America Steve Rogers are outselling their politically correct counterparts.

That's nice DC but can you change Cassandra Cain's outfit? She looks like one of Shredder's foot ninjas.

@nappystr8: Here's the thing though. The Golden Age Green Lantern and Flash? They stopped being popular because superheroes stopped being cool after World War II. That's why so many public domain characters were from the Golden Age. They were all forgotten so Hal Jordan and Barry Allen becoming Green Lantern and Flash was no big deal. And their successors? They were better (and still are) than those two in every way. Wally West is a funny guy and had used his speed in ways no speedster ever done before. Plus, his comics were just way better. Kyle Rayner? His constructs were relatable to the reader's imaginations since he created anime-like constructs and cartoon characters. As for John Stewart and Guy Gardner, a Green Lantern Corps was made in the Silver Age so having multiple Lanterns wasn't a big deal.

Those All New, All Different Marvel characters? They are all uninspired and do not improve on their respective predecessors at all and were simply made to piss off long-time fans. At least the Hulk was an interesting take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde plus being the pure rage hero who destroys everything on sight was pretty much unheard of during the 1960s. Jane Foster, Riri, Amadeus Cho, and all these knock-offs are gonna go the way of Eric Masterson and young Tony Stark.

Marvel does not hide it's diversity agenda. Yes, the characters are black to be black, or female to be female, or Muslim to be Muslim. That is not a problem. Every character ever made was made to represent some group or idea. Race and gender however, are only two aspects of a character. These are not diversity clones of the characters that came before, they are legitimate legacy characters.

Have you read an issue of any of these series? Because I have read Sam Wilson Cap, Miles Morales Spider-Man, Amadeus Cho Hulk, and Kamalah Khan Ms. Marvel pretty consistently. Those four characters are every bit as unique and well written as Kyle or Wally. There are only two differences, the first being that you are thinking about Wally and Kyle with hindsight and nostalgia, rather than cynicism and resistance. The second is that Kyle and Wally are both white males.

I've read all of them actually (Amadeus Cho being the only exception). With the exception of Kamala Khan, who has her own powers and is only taking up a name that Carol left behind, they're all pale imitations of their predecessors. But at least Sam Wilson was Falcon. Yeah, a lame superhero but the Civil War movie proves Marvel didn't even try to make him any useful besides being Aquaman of the Skies.
