The series is a reboot happening in a different timeline to any past media or the 2017 movie, and is more mature than the series' usual campy tone.
A special one-shot "MMPR Issue #0" came out on January 6, 2016, while the full series debuted in March of the same year.
On July 14, 2020, Boom! Studios announced the book would end in September and be relaunched the following month at Issue #1, with the series simply titled as Mighty Morphin. Though the comic has technically ended, both Mighty Morphin and the concurrent series Power Rangers have variant covers that continue the legacy numbering from Issue 56 onwards.
Taking place in Angel Grove in the year 2015, Issue #1 began with the "Green Ranger: Year One" story arc, where Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, has broken free of Rita Repulsa's control and joined the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, he suffers the side effects of having been brainwashed by evil.
The second story was the "Black Dragon/Lord Drakkon" story arc, where an evil version of Tommy from an alternate reality plots the end of the Power Rangers of the main universe of the comic and some of the Rangers end up trapped in Drakkon's world and must fight to survive. A third and currently unnamed arc involved the Power Rangers lives becoming more complicated as a former Ranger takes an interest in their activities, which could threaten to break apart the team.
A fourth arc called "Shattered Grid" ran from February 2018 and concluded on the month of the 25th anniversary in August. The story arc started with Issue #25, with a prelude in Issue #24 of the main book. The arc was a multi-series crossover as it tied into Go Go Power Rangers, commemorating both the 25th anniversary of Power Rangers and the 25th issue of the main book. It involved Lord Drakkon returning to take revenge on the Power Rangers in an assault that could threaten the very existence of all Power Rangers across time and space. The arc's tagline is: "No Ranger is Safe".
A fifth arc titled "Beyond the Grid" will follow up the Shattered Grid story, this time following a team of various Rangers led by a Kimberly from an alternate reality fighting to survive as its focus. This was the first arc to be helmed by a new writer, as Kyle Higgins departed from the writing staff after a 31 issue story run.
A sixth arc called "Necessary Evil" was revealed at the 2019 New York Toy Fair by Hasbro and Boom! Studios. The story would go back to focusing on the MMPR team and focus on the aftermath of reality being restored after the Shattered Grid event and feature the comic timeline debut of the White Ranger. The event started in issue #40 on June of 2019 and Ryan Parrott of the Go Go Power Rangers comics line was made the head writer for the story arc. According to Ryan Parrott, the story arc involved both book series, much like Shattered Grid, meaning once again Go Go Power Rangers is tied to the events of a story arc. This would be the final arc to involve GGPR as the book would end at Issue #32
A new story arc, titled "Unlimited Power" had been announced for the fall of 2020. Not much is known about the arc other than it will feature a brand new Green Ranger joining the Mighty Morphin team and delve into a hidden secret about Zordon and the origin of the Power Rangers. This arc will take place in the relaunch of the comic starting with Issue #1.
