Writing this comic mini-series will be Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us) with artist Stephen Byrne (Justice League of America Rebirth: The Ray). The plot will involve Zack the Black Ranger crossing into the DC Universe and the Power Rangers attempting to save him from Batman.
|Strangest crossover yet?|
This is rather strange as the difference in power sets really make you question how something like this could possibly work when you have superheroes like Superman and The Flash who can make short work out of the Rangers. A crossover like the recent Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mini-series just made sense and blended together seamlessly as both sets of heroes and villains were similar and different enough to create a story where both shine equally. That isn't the case here. Those martial arts and giant robots can only get one so far when they have the Speed Force or a strong Kryptonian to deal with, especially since Superman has a track record of punching giant robots.
|Is this even a fair fight?|
However, it can be said that the Ranger powers are rooted in magic—a known weakness of Superman's—and that the Yellow Ranger could prove herself to be difficult to Green Lantern due to the "yellow impurity" Parallax concept. Only time will tell how this crossover will play out in January 2017.
With these issues, readers can also expect a variant cover by different artists, pairing each member of the Justice League with a Power Ranger:
- Batman/Pink Ranger by Dan Hipp
- Cyborg/Blue Ranger by Dustin Nguyen
- The Flash/Black Ranger by Yasmine Putri
- Green Lantern John Stewart/Yellow Ranger by Marguerite Sauvage
- Superman/Green Ranger by Chris Sprouse
- Wonder Woman/Red Ranger by Marcus To
