If you’re a “90s kid” like me, you undoubtedly spent Saturday mornings eating cereal and watching the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers on TV. There was nothing better than cheering on the group of martial arts experts as they kicked, punched, and karate-chopped their way through hordes of alien invaders.
I look back on my memory of the Power Rangers fondly. The team of superpowered high schoolers inspired many action figure purchases, movie viewings, and mock fights with my friends; all of us wanted to be the Power Rangers and discover our set of extraterrestrial abilities.
So when I first saw the trailer for Saban’s Power Rangers, a reboot of my beloved childhood franchise, I was instantly transported back to Angel Grove High School and the Rangers’ many battles with Rita Repulsa. Time and technology have changed the team’s look and feel, but there’s no denying that classic color scheme of red, blue, pink, black, and yellow.
