Lord Drakkon: How Tommy Morphed Into the Power Rangers Ultimate Villain
In the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics from BOOM! Studios, an evil Tommy Oliver went down a dark path to become Lord Drakkon.
Outside of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movies and TV series, BOOM! Studios has created something fresh and invigorating with its own comic line. Here, the Rangers have found themselves fighting a villain influenced by the evil Green Ranger from the show who calls himself Lord Drakkon.
Similar to the story of the "Green Ranger Saga" from the TV series, that character is really Tommy Oliver, the character made famous by actor Jason David Frank. However, in these recent books, Drakkon is way more cerebral and bloodthirsty figure, who poses an even greater threat than Lord Zedd or Rita Repulsa ever did. Now, CBR is taking a look back on the tyrannical Ranger's journey and how he almost threw the Multiverse and the Morphin Grid into oblivion.

WHO IS LORD DRAKKON?
Just like the Green Ranger, Drakkon's journey unofficially began after Tommy is found and corrupted by Rita. While the Rangers broke Tommy out of her control and turned him into a the heroic Green, and later White, Rangers, Tommy ran away and went into hiding, uncertain of his future in this comic.

Eventually, Rita found him again and revealed that she chose him because she saw his overall potential in becoming worthy of the Drakkon mantle. Accordingly, they joined forces again and Tommy embraced his dark identity and helped her lay waste to the world. He took immense pleasure in his rivalry with Jason,the Red Ranger. Just when Zordon was about to give Jason a boost to make him the most powerful Ranger ever, Tommy slipped in and stole the upgrade.
He took Jason out and then decimated Zordon's base, the other Rangers, and Alpha, harnessing this newfound power and officially christening himself as Lord Drakkon. Shockingly, he betrayed and slayed Rita, and took over her regime since he wanted to rule the cosmos himself. He used the Rangers' Power Coins to create his own Ranger Sentries, and even turned Kimberly into the Ranger Slayer, finally achieving his dream of having an unstoppable legion.
WHAT DID LORD DRAKKON DO?
Drakkon's main goal was to jump from reality to reality, killing off Rangers -- especially the good versions of himself -- and taking their Power Coins to keep building his armies. He even collected mementos such as their helmets and weapons in his effort to be the only Ranger. By drawing on the abilities of his victims, Drakkon absorbed a godlike level of power that started poisoning his own body.

Nonetheless, Drakkon fought with many Rangers such as the HyperForce team, the Samurai Rangers, the Dino Rangers and the Jungle Fury Rangers as he invaded dimension after dimension in the Shattered Grid event. Even after he was captured and held on an Earth by the U.S. government, he escaped, driven by the thought of conquering every reality in existence. Ultimately, no prison was strong enough to hold him, as various iterations of Zordons and the Power Rangers found out.
The villain finally achieved his endgame when he was able to manipulate the Grid, use special emissaries and acquire the Heart of the Master. This gem allowed him to tamper with the Multiverse and merge all worlds into one reality where he finally achieved his main ambition, becoming the lord of the entire planet.
HOW WAS LORD DRAKKON DEFEATED?
In this new reality, Drakkon was a Superman-esque figure ruling over everyone and everything. Zordon and Rita were his parents, with Rangers like Billy turned into a mechanic, Zack and Trini turned into reporters, and Kimberly into a waitress. However, the good version of Tommy still had a say in the matter as his spirit kept haunting Drakkon as he ruled.

This weakened Drakkon's grip on the crystal, allowing the good Tommy to resurrect himself and return for one final battle with his evil counterpart. Tommy and Drakkon battled until the former was able to extract the relic, and with this world Drakkon created crumbling, Tommy restored the Multiverse to how it was before. Tommy offered Drakkon a chance to survive and garner redemption by coming with him, but Drakkon refused.
He opted to remain with his broken world as it collapsed, and it ultimately crumbled around him as it ended. This was similar to what happened after the first time he and Tommy fought, when Drakkon jumped off of a cliff instead of the defeat and salvation that Tommy offered him. Drakkon's stubborn mentality and overall ego paved the way to his downfall, but he still represented the greatest threat that the Rangers ever faced.

Power Rangers Kills SPOILER in Shattered Grid
It looks like Power Rangers Shattered Grid just kicked off in a huge way, and a longtime Ranger favorite might have paid the price.
Spoilers incoming for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25, so if you want to go in without spoilers you've been warned.
The big day is finally here, and in Power Rangers #25 it is revealed that a Power Ranger falls.
Seriously last chance.
In the issue's third act Tommy is walking down an alley when someone calls his name, but unfortunately for him, it isn't a Ranger. Instead, it is revealed to be Lord Drakkon, who literally stabs him in the back with Saba, who he recently recovered after Saba tried to kill Drakkon in Go Go Power Rangers.
Tommy grimaces in pain and hits the ground, crawling away from Lord Drakkon. Kimberly manages to find the duo and interrupt Drakkon from getting another shot in, but it seems his first attack very well could've done the trick.
Kimberly isn't enough to fend off Drakkon, but luckily for her, another Ranger shows up to help, that being Jen Scotts of the Time Force Rangers. They fend Drakkon off (he is still weaker at this point), but Tommy isn't moving, and the issue ends with Kimberly holding him, pleading with him not to go.
This will not only have a huge effect on Kimberly, but could also possibly have a massive effect on the future of the Rangers, as in official canon Tommy went on to lead several teams of Rangers, including the Zeo Rangers, Turbo Rangers, and Dino Thunder Rangers.
This just goes to show that no one, and we mean no one, is safe in Shattered Grid, and you can see the spoiler itself in the above photo.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 is written by Kyle Higgins with art by Daniele Nicuolo and a cover by Goni Montes. You can check out the official description below.2comments
"Drakkon returns and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will never be the same. The 'SHATTERED GRID' event begins here! Please note: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 will be black polybagged and shipped with (6) randomly assorted main covers by Goñi Montes in equal quantities."
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 lands in comic stores on March 28.

Tommy Oliver is a fictional character and the overarching main protagonist of the American live-action television franchise Power Rangers. He is best known as being the original Green Ranger and the first evil Ranger who fought and nearly defeated the original Power Rangers while under the control of Rita Repulsa. He was eventually freed from Rita’s spell and aligned himself with the other Power Rangers. He is a main character in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, as well as four of its successive incarnations Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, and Power Rangers Dino Thunder (where he returns as a legendary Power Ranger veteran). He also appeared in the Power Rangers Wild Force episode "Forever Red", the Power Rangers S.P.D. episode "Wormhole", the Power Rangers Super Megaforce episode "Legendary Battle", and in the Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel episode "Dimensions in Danger". He has been portrayed by actor Jason David Frank in all of his appearances with the exception of the episode "Wormhole", where he appeared only in Ranger form and was voiced by actor Jeffrey Parazzo (who played Trent Mercer in Dino Thunder). He was also infrequently portrayed by actor Michael R. Gotto in instances where the story required the character during childhood, such as in the series Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers.
According to the character's history, Tommy is a legend among the Power Rangers community and is considered to be the greatest Power Ranger of all time, having been five different Power Rangers — the Green Ranger, the White Ranger, Zeo Ranger V–Red, the Red Turbo Ranger, and the Dino Thunder Black Ranger — and a part of four Ranger teams over the years. In addition, Tommy is a lifelong practitioner of the martial arts; during the first season of Power Rangers, he was referred to as having a third-degree black belt in karate. By Power Rangers Dino Thunder, he is a 6th degree black belt. ("Return of the Ranger", Power Rangers Dino Thunder – Collision Course DVD). Tommy serves as a love interest to the original Pink Ranger Kimberly Hart before their separation. He later pursues a relationship with Kimberly's successor Kat Hillard.
Fictional character history
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
As the Green Ranger
Tommy Oliver is first introduced in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers five-part episode "Green with Evil" as a new student at Angel Grove High School. Unlike other Power Rangers, his outfit includes a golden shield armor, two golden armbands, triangles instead of diamonds on the gloves and boots, and the belt buckle is golden instead of silver. After he spars with Jason Lee Scott (Red Power Ranger) in a martial arts tournament, they begin to develop a friendship, and he catches the eye of both Kimberly Hart (Pink Power Ranger) and the evil witch Rita Repulsa. Rita decides to enchant Tommy to be her loyal servant, granting him the Dragon Power Coin to give him the power to transform into the Green Power Ranger, possessing the Dragon Shield, which makes him stronger than the other Power Rangers, and armed with the Dragon Dagger and the Sword of Darkness. She orders him to destroy the Power Rangers and their guardian Zordon so she may be able to conquer the Earth unopposed. He succeeds in his mission, dispatching of Zordon, destroying the Power Rangers' Command Center, and infecting the robot Alpha 5 with a computer virus, leaving the Rangers defenseless against attacks, but they are still able to ward him off with the Megazord. With the return of Goldar's wife Scorpina, the two wreak havoc in Angel Grove, leading the Power Rangers to use the Megazord once more, only to be attacked by Goldar, Scorpina, and the Green Ranger at once, putting the Megazord out of commission when it is thrown into the Earth's core. After this battle, the Power Rangers discover that their foe is none other than their classmate Tommy. After Tommy escapes, he uses the Dragon Dagger to summon the Dragonzord to attack the city. Zordon is revived and reveals the Power Rangers' Dinozords have been restored by the Earth's lava, allowing them to counter the Dragonzord's attack. The Red Ranger is then able to battle the Green Ranger one-on-one, and destroys the Sword of Darkness, freeing Tommy from Rita's spell. Zordon then offers Tommy a part on the team to atone for his misdeeds, and he agrees. In the original draft script for the Green Dream, Lord Zedd claims the Sword of Power was created from the remains of the Sword of Darkness. This is also stated by the announcer's intro to The Green Dream episode claiming it to be the Sword of Darkness.
During his time with the group, Tommy recognizes Kimberly's feelings, having broken her heart while he was under Rita's spell, and he now begins to show affections for her. However, Rita's plan to use the evil Green Candle to get revenge on Tommy for leaving her employ, weakening Tommy, just as Kimberly returns his affections. Tommy is captured by Goldar and kept imprisoned in the Dark Dimension as the Green Candle burns down, draining him of his strength, due to the fact that Tommy's presence within the proximity of the Candle accelerates the Candle's burning process. Tommy is ultimately freed, but not before the Green Candle burns through completely. His powers nearly gone, after using them in one final battle with a powerful monster, he decides to give the Dragon Coin to Jason, permanently preventing Rita from attaining its power once more while allowing Jason to use Tommy's weapons and the Dragonzord. Tommy then leaves Angel Grove to recover from the endeavour.
After Rita kidnaps all of the parents of the students of Angel Grove High School, the Power Rangers are forced to pay her ransom with their Power Coins, preventing them from using their powers. When they are double-crossed, and Rita acquires the Dragon Dagger by enchanting Billy Cranston, all seems hopeless, but Jason reveals he still has the Dragon Power Coin. The group finds Tommy once more, and with help from Zordon, Tommy is able to morph into the Green Ranger and retrieve the Power Coins and Dragon Dagger. However, his powers are now unstable and he requires constant energy boosts from Zordon in order to maintain his place as the Green Ranger.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 2
With the arrival of the evil Lord Zedd in season 2, the other Power Rangers are given new Thunderzords to battle his stronger monsters, but because of Tommy's unstable power reserves, the Dragonzord cannot be empowered into a new form. With this knowledge in mind, Lord Zedd sends several energy draining monsters to steal the Green Ranger's powers to the point where Zordon can no longer safely maintain himself and the Green Ranger. This culminates in the attack of the monster Turbanshell, who drains Tommy of his Green Ranger powers, trapping everyone in the Otherworld dimension, while charging the Dark Crystal to power Lord Zedd's evil Dark Rangers to attack the Earth. Tommy uses the last of his powers to destroy the Dark Crystal, ending the reign of terror of the Dark Rangers and allowing the others to defeat Turbanshell. With his powers gone once again, Tommy leaves Angel Grove, again, spending time at his uncle's lakeside cabin.
As the White Ranger
In season 2's two-part "White Light" saga, Lord Zedd sends his monsters Nimrod, A.C., and D.C. to attack, who easily overpower the Power Rangers, leading Zordon and Alpha to come up with a plan to recruit a new Ranger. Initially the teens are put off at the idea of a newcomer out of their loyalty to Tommy, but are thrilled once they discover that it is actually Tommy himself, who has now become the White Power Ranger with his powers created by the Light of Goodness, which are unable to be stolen by the forces of evil. Unlike other Power Rangers, his costume includes a black and golden shield armor as well as golden bands instead of the diamond shapes on the gloves and chest, and the mouthpiece on his helmet lacks sculpted lips. After being installed as the team's new leader (also becoming the main protagonist), Tommy goes into battle using his new powers to defeat the monsters, including summoning the Tigerzord with his talking saber Saba. Tommy then meets Rocky DeSantos, Adam Park and Aisha Campbell as they were trying to save a baby who belongs to their teacher. After Rocky, Adam and Aisha discover Tommy's identity as the White Ranger while Tommy and Kimberly were trying to save Billy by removing his helmet, Jason, Zack and Trini were called to the peace conference in Switzerland as Tommy transfers their powers to Rocky, Adam and Aisha and allows them to join the team. Tommy later contends with a clone of his named "Tom", created and controlled by Lord Zedd's Wizard of Deception, who is given the powers of the Green Ranger, restored by using portion of the White Ranger's powers. With his worst fear from his past brought to life in front of him, Tommy battles Tom, initially seeks to destroy his clone under distress but he later recognizes that Tom is actually not evil but under the Wizard's spell as he was under Rita's, and then fights to save him. After the Wizard of Deception is destroyed during a series of battles that sends everyone back to the colonial era, Tom is freed from the spell and given free will. Tommy persuades his clone to fight to save people, and Tom decides to remain in the past to protect colonial Angel Grove despite Tommy offering Tom to join the Power Rangers, while the others return to the present time. Tom also keeps the Green Ranger powers.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 3
In season 3, Rita's brother Rito Revolto comes to Earth and manages to destroy the Rangers Zords and Power Coins. After the group seeks out the Power Coins creator Ninjor, he grants the team new Ninja Power Coins, and Tommy as the White Ninja Ranger receives the Falcon Power Coin and the new Falconzord. Later, Tommy meets Kat Hillard, who has been enchanted by Rita into serving her, resulting in Kimberly's powers being stolen as well as the Falconzord. When Kimberly is kidnapped by Kat and Goldar, the Power Rangers are forced by Lord Zedd to use the Shogunzords to destroy the Earth or Kimberly will be harmed. While Billy manages to take control of the Zords away from Zedd, Tommy saves Kimberly and Kat by freeing her from Rita's spell. When Kimberly is given the option to train for the Pan Global Games, she decides to give her powers to Kat, and she and Tommy keep a long-distance relationship. He and Kat also developed a close friendship due to their similar experiences with Rita; however, he is unaware that Kat is in love with him. The Falconzord is ultimately retrieved in time for Rita and Rito's father Master Vile's arrival on Earth, and the Rangers are able to use their new Metallic Armor to battle him. It is during this time that Tommy is tasked with retrieving the Zeo Crystal from beneath Rita and Zedd's palace, as only a being of pure heart can pass through its force field and survive. Tommy manages to traverse the Caves of Deception to find the Zeo Crystal, and the team uses their powers to split it into five pieces and send it to different parts of history so Master Vile can never use its powers to harm the Earth.
Alien / Zeo / Turbo
In the events of Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers, Tommy, the other Power Rangers, and all of Angel Grove are sent back in time by Master Vile's Orb of Doom, reverting the Power Rangers to children. While the Aquitian Rangers protect the Earth from Master Vile's monsters, Billy manages to create a device to restore them to their original age, using their six Ninja Power Coins to power it. Billy is restored to his original age, but the machine is stolen by Rito and Goldar, and Rita and Zedd destroy the Ninja Power Coins. The five child Power Rangers are sent through time to retrieve the pieces of the Zeo Crystal. Tommy is sent to a point in the past on Native American land, where he meets Sam Trueheart who leads him to a test where he must find the Red Sub-Crystal amongst two fakes. After succeeding, Tommy returns to the present time, but not before Sam gives him half of an arrowhead pendant.
As the Red Zeo Ranger
During Power Rangers Zeo, time is restored to normal and Tommy, with Kat, Rocky, Adam, and new friend Tanya Sloan replacing Aisha Campbell who chose to stay in Africa, is given the powers of the Zeo Crystal and the Zeo Rangers protect the Earth from the Machine Empire. Tommy remains the team's leader and is assigned to be the Red Zeo Ranger. Later, Kimberly, while she is living in Paris for the Pan Global Games, sends Tommy a Dear John letter, ending their relationship. Kat attempts to find a new girlfriend for Tommy despite her feelings for him, but their duties as Power Rangers prevent any relationship from blossoming. Ultimately, Tommy and Kat begin dating. A holiday special during the season shows an elderly Tommy and Kat entertaining their granddaughter, and their teenaged grandson, who is hinted to be a Power Ranger. When the Zeo Megazord is heavily damaged, Tommy is given the Red Battlezord to control with his mind. Unable to control his emotions to use the Red Battlezord, Tommy goes on a spiritual journey to find peace of mind, and meets up with his long-lost twin brother David Truehart (portrayed by Jason David Frank's real brother Erik Frank). He too possesses half of an arrowhead pendant, and he reveals to Tommy that if the two halves are joined the holder could use the spirits trapped within them to control a darkness powerful enough to destroy the world. When David is captured by King Mondo, Tommy frees him, and under the stress of protecting his brother from the Machine Empire who will not leave as they are both in trouble, he reveals his identity as a Power Ranger to him. When the Rangers' ally Trey of Triforia can no longer sustain his Gold Ranger powers after a battle, Tommy recruits Jason, who has returned from Switzerland to be the new temporary Gold Ranger, reuniting the old friends. This proves useful when Tommy is brainwashed by the Machine Empire's Prince Gasket into thinking his friends are a threat to the world, as Jason and Kat are able to return Tommy to his senses. Jason leaves when Trey's health is restored.
As the Red Turbo Ranger
In Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, Tommy and Kat are sent to save the wizard Lerigot from the evil Space Pirate Divatox, who plans on wedding Maligore, a powerful monster, in order to take over the world. With their Zeo Ranger powers not strong enough, Tommy, with the other Power Rangers- and new member Justin Stewart replacing Rocky DeSantos due to a recent back injury- are given new powers to morph into the Turbo Rangers, with Tommy still serving as team leader as the Red Turbo Ranger. They use their new powers to save Jason and Kimberly, who have been kidnapped by Divatox as sacrifices for Maligore.
In Power Rangers Turbo, as he and his friends graduate from high school, Tommy becomes interested in stock car racing. The group also deals with the Blue Senturion who has been tricked by Divatox into thinking the Rangers are evil and preventing him from telling the Rangers the Millennium Message, a warning that the forces of evil are joining together out in space. After Zordon and Alpha 5 leave the Earth to deal this threat, the team's new guardian Dimitria eventually judges that Tommy, along with Kat, Adam, and Tanya, has fulfilled their duties as defenders of the Earth. In the episode "Passing the Torch", Divatox's mother Mama D convinces her that taking out Tommy will cause the fall of the rest of Power Rangers. Their new allies T.J. Johnson and Cassie Chan manage to help Kat fend off the Pirahantrons, and save Tommy from Divatox and Mama D's plans, resulting in Tommy (who is leaving for MIT university to become a teacher) deciding that T.J. should be his successor as the new Red Turbo Ranger.
Power Rangers Wild Force
Five years after Tommy gave his powers to T.J., Tommy returns in the Power Rangers Wild Force episode "Forever Red", where he is shown to own a resort with Bulk and Skull. Tommy leads a team made up of former Red Power Rangers, recruiting the current Red Ranger Cole Evans to help stop remnants of the Machine Empire from resurrecting Lord Zedd's evil Zord Serpentera and attack the Earth. Tommy uses his Zeo Ranger powers to combat the enemies.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder
As the Black Dino Ranger
Between the events in Turbo and Power Rangers Dino Thunder, Tommy earns a PhD in paleontology at MIT. He also meets Hayley Ziktor and goes into business as partners with Terrence "Smitty" Smith and Dr. Anton Mercer, who together work on research that results in the creation of the Tyrannodrones, Raptor Riders, and the new Dinozords. A lab accident turns Mercer into the evil Mesogog, and Smitty is left for dead, until he is revived by Mesogog into the cyborg Zeltrax. It is during these events that Tommy discovers the Dino Gems, hiding them in his lab, and the location of the Shield of Triumph. While Mesogog gains control of the Tyrannodrones, Tommy keeps the Raptor Riders and Dinozords, working with Hayley to create equipment to harness the Dino Gems' powers, while he gets a job at Reefside High School as a science teacher. Three of his students who received detention—Conner McKnight, Ethan James, and Kira Ford—discover his lab and use three of the Dino Gems to become the new Dino Thunder Power Rangers. Tommy mentors the group, keeping his past secret, until he discovers the monsters attacking Reefside are controlled by Mesogog. His three students soon discover the man they know as "Dr. O" was one of the previous Power Rangers, a fact that Hayley corrects them on by saying that he was one of the best. Tommy, using the powers of the Black Dino Gem, joins the group as the Black Dino Ranger and became the second-in-command, controlling the Brachiozord.
When the White Dino Ranger appears, Tommy's dedication to saving the lives of innocents seems to give Tommy cause to show no mercy to him, even after he discovers that the White Dino Ranger is Trent Mercer. For a while, Tommy is encased in amber by the White Dino Ranger, and once freed, finds himself unable to de-morph, due to his Dino Gem and his morpher re-molecularizing. He remains in his morphed form for a while. Despite this resolve, he cannot help but feel sympathy for Trent when his students did not, reminding the others of his tenure as the evil Green Power Ranger. After seeing the power of the White Ranger Clone and the Terrorsaurus, Tommy decides that the Rangers need an upgrade. He takes Trent to the location of the Shield of Triumph, as the shield can only be freed from its resting place by the power of Trent's Dino Gem. The Shield is then used by Conner to become the Triassic Ranger, just as a prophecy Tommy had read during its discovery foretold. Tommy is later freed from his permanently morphed status by a special substance, but is rendered invisible. He decides to run an experiment to return himself to normal, but it shatters the Black Dino Gem and leaves him comatose. In his subconscious, he battles against his previous Power Ranger alter-egos: Zeo Ranger V, the White Power Ranger, and then the Green Power Ranger. After proving that he will not give up the fight for his life, his inner selves each offer him a shattered piece of his Dino Gem, restoring him to full health and allowing him to attain Super Dino Mode when morphed. During his mentoring of the Dino Thunder Rangers, Tommy notes similarities in his past in Conner, placing a lot of trust into him. His mentoring of Conner through a point where the young man doubts himself, allows Conner to overcome these feelings and gain the Battlizer. When Tommy learns that Trent has been keeping his father's identity as Mesogog secret, Tommy considers removing Trent from the team. Although he comes to terms with Trent's loyalty to his father, he asks the others if Trent should stay, and they agree when Trent saves Conner's life. In the final battles against Zeltrax and Mesogog, having been liberated from sharing a body with Anton Mercer, Tommy informs the Rangers that they must give up their powers in order to save the world. Zeltrax is destroyed with the destruction of the Dinozords, and the Rangers give up their Dino Gems to stop Mesogog for good. In the end, Tommy decides to pursue his life after Mesogog's destruction as a normal high school science teacher.
The character of Tommy Oliver is not present during the Power Rangers S.P.D. episode "History", in which Conner, Kira, and Ethan go to their high school reunion in 2005, wondering if Tommy will arrive, only to be taken into the future by the S.P.D. Power Rangers' foe Broodwing. Tommy does return in the episode "Wormhole" when Emperor Grumm travels back in time to take over the Earth without S.P.D.'s interference, only to encounter the Dino Rangers. According to S.P.D. Red Ranger Jack Landors, Tommy's services as a Power Ranger are well known in the future. In this episode, Jason David Frank didn't reprise his role as Tommy Oliver, and as such only appears morphed. He was instead voiced by Jeffrey Parazzo, who also portrays Trent.
Although he doesn't appear on screen in the Power Rangers Operation Overdrive two-part episode "Once a Ranger", Kira mentions how Tommy would have enjoyed seeing the Operation Overdrive Power Rangers' base of operations, with Adam noting his incredulity that Tommy received a doctorate.
The Legendary Battle
Jason David Frank reprised the character of Tommy Oliver in Power Rangers Super Megaforce. He helped a boy out of a car that was dangling off the side of a bridge using Saba, the White Ranger's sword. He then appeared alongside the other Legendary Rangers including his former teammates, again as the original Green Ranger after, at some point prior, he found the restored Dragon Power Coin, to fight alongside the Megaforce Rangers and defeat the Armada.
Power Rangers Ninja Steel
Tommy returned in Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel as the Dino Thunder Black Ranger, the Mighty Morphin' Green and White Ranger, and the Red Zeo Ranger. He has a master morpher that lets him change into all of his Ranger forms (sans Red Turbo). As of this Power Ranger entry, he is married to Kat and had a son named J.J.. The evil Lord Draven from the Antiverse dimension teams up with Madame Odius, to conquer all the dimensions including the main Power Rangers dimension, the RPM Power Rangers dimension and the Dino Charge Rangers dimension. He captures Tommy to make his first evil robot clone. The robot Tommy then captures six former rangers; Rocky DeSantos, Katherine Hillard, T.J. Johnson, Trent Fernandez, Antonio Garcia, and Gia Moran to make an army of evil robot clones. The real Tommy is able to break free, and with the help from Time Force Red Ranger Wes Collins, Ranger Operator Series Sliver Gemma, and Dino Charge Blue Ranger Koda, they break free the other captured rangers. The ten veteran rangers plus the Ninja Steel rangers defeat Lord Draven, and all dimensions are safe.
The character also appears in the Power Rangers comics from Boom Studios.
A villainous alternate version of Tommy from another universe known as Lord Drakkon is also featured, with his costume combining elements of Tommy's green and white Ranger suits. Drakkon also controls a unique Zord called the Black Dragon. Because of the chain of events including Lord Drakkon's attacks to the Power Rangers' universe, it creates an alternate reality from the television series' continuity. He also kills Tommy before he can become the White Ranger. In 2018, Jason David Frank has been involved with Boom! Studios' Power Rangers comic book storyline "Shattered Grid", about the character's war against all of the incarnations of the Power Rangers and their enemies throughout their universe's timeline with Frank portraying Lord Drakkon in its promotions. During the storyline, despite Drakkon having killed Tommy as part of his first attack on the prime universe, Tommy nevertheless plays an important role in Lord Drakkon's defeat, with a chain of events having trapped Tommy's spirit in a crystal held in the weapon Drakkon used to kill his counterpart. When Drakkon succeeds in subverting the Morphing Grid and using it to rewrite the universe to make himself the hero, Tommy's spirit forces Drakkon to face his fundamental weakness, Drakkon having attacked the multiverse simply because he couldn't accept that he was the only Tommy Oliver to choose evil. Although Tommy offers his counterpart a truce, Drakkon chooses to die instead. After the multiverse is restored, the timeline returned to how it is supposed to be as depicted in the television franchise with no one remembering the events.
Tommy features in the graphic novel Soul of the Dragon, which depicts him as an old man investigating the recent disappearance of his son, J.J., who has apparently dropped out of SPD. While investigating his son's recent activities with the aid of another SPD cadet, Tommy learns that his Master Morpher was damaged the last time he used it eight years ago; as a result, he can only morph into his past Ranger identities in reverse order, and once he has used a morph the power coin that creates the morph will be destroyed. With the aid of a reformed Finster, Tommy learns that J.J. was actually undercover investigating the return of Scorpina and the dark wizard Lokar, culminating in Tommy giving his Master Morpher to his son so that J.J. can use the final morph for himself. As Tommy leaves for a vacation with Kat, it is revealed that J.J. has become the official SPD Green Ranger, but the dregs of power in the Master Morpher have also left him with his father's Dragon Shield.
In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, Jason David Frank portrayed a similar version of his character from the television series, who endowed new powers from warrior Dulcea and becomes the White Ninja Ranger; he harnesses the spirit of the falcon and controlling the White Falcon Ninjazord to defeat Ivan Ooze with his team. Unlike the television series, Tommy's White Ranger costume is more of an armor than a formfitting spandex.
Power Rangers (2017 film)
While Tommy Oliver did not appear in the 2017 reboot film, Jason David Frank does have a cameo role, and Tommy Oliver is referenced in a post-credits scene, setting up his role as the Green Ranger in future sequels. Frank's cameo consists of a brief appearance of him as a random citizen of Angel Grove, accompanied by Amy Jo Johnson, where he is part of a crowd gathering after the Rangers have defeated Goldar in the Megazord, and is apparently the first person to bring out his cellphone to take a picture of the Megazord. The mid-credits sequence features a teacher in charge of the weekend detention class calling for Tommy Oliver, and the camera focusing on an empty chair with a green jacket with a dragon, draped over it. The cast of the film as well as Frank himself, have expressed interest in a female version in the sequel.
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars - Street Fighter Showdown (2018 shortfilm)
In this short film, Tommy Oliver is again played by Jason David Frank. He and former Megaforce ranger Gia Moran assist Ryu and Chun-Li in stopping the criminal M. Bison and freeing a captured Ninjor. During this film, it is revealed that Ninjor, who created the original power coins, gave Tommy an upgrade to his suit. He now has a silver and gold helmet, as well as new weapons and a darker colored suit.
Tommy has been often voted as the most popular character of the entire franchise. The character was only intended to appear for one season but became so popular that Tommy became a breakout character and a season regular.

Power Rangers: 10 Reasons Lord Drakkon Is The Most Powerful Villain
If Tommy Oliver isn't the single most popular Power Ranger ever, he's at least one of the most popular ever. There was always an edge to Tommy; even after he battled back from his evil streak while under Rita Repulsa.
In the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics series by Boom! Studios, there's a version of Tommy who didn't see the light like the one in the show. He became the villain known as Lord Drakkon that was at the center of the series' greatest event yet.
Lord Drakkon was ruthless in his desire for domination. It took every Ranger in existence just to put up a fair fight against him. But that wasn't just a result of his determination and his awesome looking Ranger suit (the best one yet). Lord Drakkon was the most powerful villain the Power Rangers have ever dealt with. Here are 10 reasons why:

10 Universe Teleportation
If you think X-Men's Nightcrawler had serious teleportation abilities, you're never going to believe what Lord Drakkon can do. He is able to jump across other dimensions to carry out his evil doing. Now, he's not bouncing around every which way like Kurt Wagner, but he can pretty much teleport anywhere imaginable. Hard to plan for someone when they can drop in wherever they want to. Not to mention the Rangers who knew nothing of Drakkon. Several times he just showed up on their doorstep and went after them without hesitation.
9 White And Green Ranger Abilities
Lord Drakkon was given the powers of the Green Ranger by Rita, much like the Tommy everyone grew up with on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. After being freed from Rita's control, he rejoined her and found out about Jason Scott's transformation into the White Ranger. Tommy crashes the party mid-upgrade, defeats Jason and takes the powers of the White Ranger and withholds his Green Ranger abilities. The powers of the White Ranger already put him on a level above all other Rangers. Combined with the Green Ranger powers, Lord Drakkon became too much for any one Ranger to handle.
8 Black Dragon Cannons
Now, as much as Lord Drakkon is stronger than every other Ranger, he can't take them all on by himself. While he has an army to help him with that, he also has his Black Dragon Cannons to help with this. These cannons shut down any Ranger's powers from the Morphin Grid itself. From there, the fight turns into a slaughter since Drakkon and his soldiers are the only ones with powers — unless we're talking about the Space Patrol Delta Power Rangers that had inborn powers.
7 Knowledge Of The Morphin Grid
As if holding on to the powers of the White Ranger and the Green Ranger weren't already enough, Lord Drakkon discovered he could absorb more power with the help of his companion, Finster-5.
RELATED: Scorpina: Why Did the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Villain Disappear?
In Lord Drakkon's quest for all-out domination, Finster-5 discovers his master can absorb more power from the Morphin Grid by stealing one morpher from each group of Rangers — as opposed to stealing them all, which was the initial plan. However, any extra morphers could also be applied to his soldiers.
6 An Army Of Rangers
Lord Drakkon knows there's something to the concept "strength in numbers." He recruits Rangers to help his cause, creating a tremendous force that's often too much for one team of Rangers to deal with. On top of their evil intentions, Lord Drakkon is able to enhance their abilities with morphers from other Rangers.
5 Capable Of Killing Other Versions Of Himself
Being able to kill alternate versions of yourself is more of an intangible trait than anything else. You're not offing yourself, but it has to be the closest thing to it. That has to take a toll on anyone, even Lord Drakkon. Killing Tommy Olivers from other realities shows he's fully committed to what he's doing and nothing is going to get in the way of his goal.
4 Being Evil Is His Choice
Tommy Oliver was a free man before he became Lord Drakkon. He had rid himself of Rita's spell and was free to choose whichever side he wanted in the battle of good and evil. Yet he chose to be evil.
RELATED: BOOM! Studios' Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Adds a Fan-Favorite Hero
While there are some characters throughout comics who are pure evil like Drakkon, there seem to be more who actually the hero of their own story. That doesn't make them less evil, but it shows the right intent might be there, they just have a terrible idea of how to fix things. That's not a problem for Lord Drakkon, giving him to limits to relentlessness and unpredictability.
3 Precision Is A Priority
Lord Drakkon has flair in everything he does. His kick-ass look certainly helps with that, too. But unlike so many other idiotic villains, Lord Drakkon doesn't waste his time explaining his plot to his rivals. Like when Red Samurai Ranger Lauren Shiba asked him about his plans in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26, Lord Drakkon replied her, "You think you're entitled to a reason? Not every destruction needs to be explained." In fairness to Lauren, pretty much everyone else explains their intent. Lord Drakkon is a rare exception, keeping his plans safe and intact, thus making him more difficult to plan for adequately.
One of Lord Drakkon's greatest weapons was, in fact, a person: his universe's Pink Ranger, Kimberly Ann Hart. Also known as the Ranger Slayer, Kimberly was brainwashed by Lord Drakkon to serve as his mercenary in his conquest. She eventually breaks his spell, but in the time she worked under him, Kimberly was the second deadliest Power Ranger in the universe (second only to Lord Drakkon, of course).
1 He's Loyal To His Cause Above All Else
As the end drew near, Lord Drakkon did everything he could to draw as much power as possible to complete his conquest. He'd had already been pushing the boundaries of what his body could handle, but did not care. However, his best friend in the universe Finster-5 did — to the point he was willing to refuse orders. Lord Drakkon then ended the life of the only other being that mattered to him. having people to fight for can bring the best out of a hero. But when a villain has no one they care about, they can be unpredictable and reckless — unsafe for anyone to be around.

Went to the bathroom, bitch, ten minutes, wash up. A naked elderly woman stood in front of her son, arms at the seams, eyes on the floor. - Okay, whore, from this day on, forget about underwear, panties and bra only. On my orders. Do you fucking get it.¡Orígenes: Lord Drakkon!
The fingers were just wooden and did not want to obey. Unable to cope with the latter, I pulled the shirt over my head and laid it at her feet. - Now jeans - the hostess nodded approvingly, savoring wine from a glass. The guests did not make a sound, everyone looked at what was happening with interest, slightly intoxicated by alcohol.
I unbuckled my belt and pulled off my.

The way the partners settled on the bed, the angle at which it was in relation to the front door they were having sex, betrayed them with their heads. Both Misha and Tanya were well aware that the twins were spying on how they frolic, and made every effort to ensure that the young observers saw everything and in. All the details: Young naked bodies that almost merged into a single whole resembled a dense sandwich only at first sight.
Only a few moments later it was possible to make out the details: a woman lying on her back with legs spread wide to the sides and a. Partner hanging over her.
