The only rangers to appear in American comics are Mighty Morphin' Yellow Ranger, Yellow Zeo Ranger, and Yellow Turbo Ranger. However some later teams had comics in the UK. The 2017 version of the Yellow Ranger from Power Rangers appeared in a one shot comic taking place after the film.
Boom Studios! is the current publisher of Power Rangers comics. The current critically acclaimed series focuses on the season one cast of 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 "downloaded2 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 Yellow Rangers...
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
Trini was chosen by Zordon to wield the power of the Saber-Toothed Tiger Power Coin to become the Yellow Power Ranger. She is a bright, supportive and athletic young woman who is able to assist Billy with Zord maintenance due to her own advanced intellect. She initially wanted to pursue a similar career to her father, who was a doctor in Taiwan, but since participating in the World Peace Summit she has found a new trajectory in life. At some point after the World Peace Summit, Zack and Trini started dating. Now living in South America, Trini literally crash lands into Kimberly when she comes to get her - having overcome her fear of heights. After explaining the situation to them, Zack and Trini are willingly to help Kim and become rangers one last time using the Sword of Light's power.
This takes place after the events of the 2017 film and has no relation to the MMPR comic. In this series Trini is more independent, stoic, opinionated yet a lovable sisterly figure to her teammates. The Yellow power coin chose Trini, which differs from the show where Zordon chose her, and she commands the Saber-Tooth Tiger Zord.
After defeating Rita and Goldar the rangers are on clean-up duty, collecting the remnants of Goldar and defeating remaining putties. Trini calls this practice and seems to enjoy her new superhero lifestyle. After cleaning up Angel Grove, the rangers hang out and try to relax before trouble arises again. Putties combining with humans and becoming stronger. Two in particular, the Hogan twins, combine together to form a gigantic monster! The rangers head to their zords and take on the moster, head on. Trini seems to be confident enough to use her zord to jump at the creature head on. They combine to form the megazord and defeat the menace, all while bonding in the process.
Major Story Arcs
Green Ranger: Year One
When Tommy fell unconscious after his battle with Scorpina, she made a request to Zordon that she perform a power scan on him, noting that his heart rate was heightened. The two bonded during the analysis, with her recognizing Tommy's guilt over his actions under Rita's spell. During the scan, Tommy began to hallucinate and, along with the scan itself, gave Trini clear evidence that Rita's control had done more damage to Tommy than he'd been letting on.
During the battle against Lord Drakkon's Black Dragon, Trini and the other rangers have their powers severed after Billy's Power Coin is taken. She is re-powered as a Green Ranger thanks to Tommy's Power Coin and reclaims control of her Zord. She is abducted during the battle with Finster's Goldar Army and uses the situation to reclaim Billy's coin. With Billy's Zord regained under their control, they form the Megazord, stop Goldar and travel to Lord Drakkon's dimension to aid the rebels against Rita's forces and save their lost friends. In an attempt to regain Zordon's tether to their world, Trini and Kimberly reclaim the fragments of Zordon's Staff from a black market dealer named Zosma.

During his attempt to teleport them out, the teleportation relay is destroyed by a fake version of Alpha 5 with a bomb implanted in him.
