In life, there are certain burning questions. What came first, the chicken or the egg? Can you, in fact, wear white after Labor Day? And most importantly, who would win in a fight between the Justice League and the Power Rangers? Tom Taylor and Stephen Byrne look to answer one of those queries with the latest crossover from DC Comics and BOOM! Studios, Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1. Their first issue is fun and full of fandom, though the extended setup limits how far this debut can go.
Writer Taylor wastes no time in bringing the two titular teams together, delivering a strong and surprisingly gripping opener that evokes the more mature tone currently in place with BOOM!’s signature series. Even the triggering of their meeting is handled with a degree of gravitas, Taylor utilizing the ever ay-yi-yi-ing Alpha 5 as a Trojan Horse of sorts. The resulting instance leads to Black Lantern Zack meeting the wrong end of a transporter malfunction, setting the stage for a strange shift in scenery from Angel Grove and an even stranger set of protectors.
