It's almost time for a new issue of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and ComicBook.com has your new exclusive preview of the next chapter in Necessary Evil! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #42 from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Daniele di Nicuolo hits next Wednesday, but we've got your first look at the new issue right here, which features the new Ranger recruits holding their own against a brand new set of Putties. The new Putties feature four spider-like legs, though as Tommy shows the other Rangers, they hold the same weakness point. While Tommy can see their weakness, what he doesn't see might just be the Rangers' undoing.
As you can see, Tommy, Billy, Kimberly, Aisha, Rocky, and Adam are actually being watched by Dayne, the bounty hunter hired by Zedd to take down the Rangers. While the Rangers are handling the new Putties with ease, Dayne is analyzing all of their weaknesses and strengths, waiting for just the right moment to strike.
While that's happening the Emissary is giving the rundown to his new team of Omega Rangers, Jason, Trini, Zack, and Kiya, though as you can see he is having a bit of a hard time getting his message across. He does break down a bit of why the Omega Rangers exist, though for a deeper dive into that you can check out our full breakdown here.
You can check out our full preview starting on the next slide.
