Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 is the first issue of IDW Publishing and BOOM! Studios' five-issue crossover comic miniseries. It was published on March 23, 2022.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

When Rita Repulsa uses an ancient artifact to transport herself to a universe without Power Rangers, she finds herself in a world with aliens, kaiju, and...Godzilla! Hoping to annihilate this new foe, Rita hurls her own terrible creatures into battle. But she never expects that the Rangers have followed her to this alternate reality, pitting the Dinozords themselves head-to-head with the King of the Monsters![2]

Plot[edit | edit source]

The evil witch Rita Repulsa storms an ancient temple, backed by Goldar, Scorpina, Finster, and several Putty Patrollers. They easily slaughter the monks inside before Rita turns her attention to the Multiversal Focus, an artifact of unimaginable power. Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, sent by Zordon to monitor them, impulsively charges into battle. Rita's minions hold him off as she taps into the power of the gem - and uses it to transport them all into a reality where the Power Rangers don't exist.

The Putties dissolve as they travel to this new universe, and Rita, Goldar, Scorpina, and Finster crash-land in the ruins of the Rangers' hometown, Angel Grove. Tommy is nowhere to be seen. Rita is delighted when she spots the source of the destruction: Godzilla and Megalon, locked in combat. She also notices an alien vessel floating overhead, and teleports herself and her cohorts aboard. They easily subdue the Xilien crew and demand to speak to their leader, the Supreme Controller of Planet X. Meanwhile, Zordon assembles the rest of the Power Rangers, planning to send them to Tommy's rescue by tracking his energy signature.

Godzilla dispatches Megalon with a blast of atomic breath. The Supreme Controller explains that his race has been attempting to conquer Earth and assume control of its natural resources for some time, but Godzilla has consistently thwarted them. On the ground, Tommy recovers and assumes Godzilla is one of Rita's monsters. Playing the Dragon Dagger, he calls forth the Dragonzord. Rita tries to command Godzilla's mind, and is stunned when he shrugs off her magic. The Supreme Controller comments that Godzilla and Earth's other monsters are nearly impossible to control. She takes solace in the idea that Godzilla and the Dragonzord will destroy each other, but he adds that the machine has little chance against the King of the Monsters, who has destroyed every monster they have called forth to fight him. She scoffs at the aliens' inability to create their own monsters or make them do their bidding.

The Dragonzord strikes first, but Godzilla badly damages it with a punch to the chest. It responds with finger missiles, knocking him back, then crumples as Godzilla topples it with a tail whip and devastates it with his atomic breath. As he lifts it over his head, the rest of the Rangers materialize on the battlefield and prepare to unleash their Dinozords.
