In addition to learning who the mysterious new Ranger is and another surprising discovery, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11 contained one more surprise that will play a big part in books to come.
Spoilers for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11 incoming, so you've been warned.
After Tommy and Billy discover the old Power Rangers headquarters in this darker dimension, Tommy begins to hear a voice coming from underneath the rubble. He, of course, asks who is speaking, but the mysterious entity tells him he'll have to enter the barren HQ to find out. Descending downward, he comes to a sealed door, and after opening is greeted with "Not quite what you were expecting?".
The words happen to come from a sentient sword held in a containment field. When Tommy says "I can pretty much say I was not expecting to find a talking sword", the sword responds "That's probably because I'm the only one. You may call me Saba."
Fans will know Saba as the enchanted sword that Tommy wields as the White Ranger, a sword that also controls the White Tigerzord. In addition to speaking, Saba can also fly and shoot energy blasts and enables the warrior mode on the Tigerzord.
As to what his presence here means, it could likely be that Lord Drakkon keeps him captive to prevent others from gaining control of the Tigerzord, though the Zord hasn't shown up yet in the book.
Writer Kyle Higgins spoke to ComicBook.com about Saba, and what fans can expect from the sentient sword going forward. "He's going to be our guide through this strange land. How did things go down here? What happened to tear him away from the White Ranger powers? Saba has a role to play that's not quite what anyone is expecting. "
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11 is in stores now, and you can read the official description below. Saba's debut can be found in the gallery.
Billy and Tommy are left powerless and trapped in a strange new world. Jason and the rest of the team must do all they can to track down their missing friends and bring Zordon back.
