This is the beginning of a new week-long segment looking into significant moments within the Power Rangers universe. Not all of them, mind you, but some of the biggest events that forever affected the franchise in one way or another. Each moment will be covered in the order of each moment’s series (not by significance). Let’s get started, shall we?
Day 1 – Tommy Oliver – 1st Sixth Ranger
Love him or hate him, Tommy Oliver was THE first Sixth Ranger, and set a precedence for all who followed in such a role. A source of many fans’ adoration, and with good reason. A powerhouse for sure, as well as a unique fighting style and Zord, the Tommy Train started with (And could not have started without) the Green Ranger.
Of course for added informational goodness, Tommy’s counterpart for this season’s original source footage, Burai, was also Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger‘s Dragon Ranger, Super Sentai’s first Sixth Ranger. Pretty cool stuff, eh?
Check in tomorrow, when we highlight Delphine, the first female leader of a Power Ranger team!
