DC’s Justice League is crossing over with Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, according to a leaked press release from DC Comics (via Power Rangers News). Described as a six-issue miniseries co-produced by DC and BOOM! Studios, the Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers title will be written by Tom Taylor with art by Stephen Byrne.
Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers begins when Zack, the Black Ranger, is flung into the DCU after a teleporter accident from Power Rangers’ Command Center. The remaining Rangers then go on a rescue mission to save Zack.
“DC and BOOM! Studios teaming up on this crossover is a dream come true for fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Justice League,” said Hank Kanalz, Senior Vice President, Editorial Strategy and Administration, DC Entertainment. “Stories like this are a great way to have that ‘what if’ itch scratched, combining favorite characters from different publishers in epic adventures.”
This is the second major crossover event between DC and BOOM!, following the recently released Gotham Academy / Lumberjanes miniseries.
“Everyone at BOOM! is thrilled to be part of an event of this magnitude,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We have iconic characters meeting for the first time that are beloved the world over! Our imaginations have been racing since the moment this kicked off with our friends at DC and Saban Brands. Get ready…this is one event that’s not to be missed.”
Karl Kerschl is illustrating the primary covers for each of the six issues, with variants pairing a JLer with a MMPRer from Dan Hipp, Dustin Nguyen, Yasmine Putri, Marguerite Sauvage, Chris Sprouse, and Marcus To.
“With their talented roster of writers and artists, DC and BOOM! Studios bring to life the world’s greatest superheroes, including the iconic Power Rangers,“ said Janet Hsu, CEO at Saban Brands. “With DC, BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands partnering, we will bring fans a legendary crossover that will stand the test of time, just as these historical superheroes have done individually for decades.”
Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is scheduled to debut in January.
