"Green Ranger, Rescue ready!"

Joel Rawlings is the Green Lightspeed Ranger of the Lightspeed Rangers.

He is also referred to as Green Lightspeed Rescue Ranger or Lightspeed Rescue Green Ranger, though these are more in reference to the show than proper labels.


Nicknamed "the Sky Cowboy," Joel was an aerial stuntman and was recruited by Captain Mitchell to be the Green Lightspeed Ranger.

He was extremely reluctant to become a Power Ranger at first, not believing in Lightspeed or what it had to offer, but when he saw his beloved Mariner Bay in danger, he decided to take them up on their offer.

He showed interest in the Rangers' assistant, though his first attempt to impress her went awry when he mocked the "computer geek" who wouldn't let him fly the way he wanted to on his first mission.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Lightspeed Teamwork After Queen Bansheera had been defeated once and for all, Rawlings and Ms. Fairweather were about to go out on their first date when he was called away on Ranger business, unable to let his duties end with the demons.Tvicon.png TV STORY-The Fate of Lightspeed, Pt 2 He eventually married Ms. Fairweather, and the two were seen heading off on their honeymoon right when he got a call from Carter. Not realizing the importance of the call he told him it had to wait. His wife, figuring it must have been something important, snatched his cellphone and heard Vypra had returned and told him Joel would be there. He then returned to the team to help battle Vypra with the Time Force Power Rangers. He fought alongside his Green Ranger successor.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Time for Lightspeed

Split History

Shattered Grid

When events set into motion by Lord Drakkon caused the timeline to split into pocket universe, each anchored on a powerset, the Lightspeed Rangers were split off into their own pocket universe. Lord Drakkon then attacked them. Later, he was seen in Promethea, when it was already in another dimension.

When the timeline was restored, so was Joel.



Joel is easily the most arrogant of all the Lightspeed rangers, having a record of preferring to disobey orders in favor of his stunts. One example was when he decided against Angela, the one who designed his zord, orders to do what he wanted. This would later backfire when he gave her flowers in an attempt to impress her then berated her (unknowingly), causing his first attempt to win her heart to fail miserably. Over the course of Lightspeed Rescue, Joel starts to mature greatly, eventually enough to win him his long-time crush's heart, resulting in them being married a year later.

Ranger Key

The Green Lightspeed Ranger Key.

The Green Lightspeed Ranger Key is Joel's personal Ranger Key. This key along with the majority of the Core Ranger Keys are seen lining the Command Center's interior walls. This key is mainly used by Jake Holling (Super Megaforce Green) who uses it to fight as the Green Lightspeed Ranger. Although it has not been used yet, it has been seen in toy form.

Behind the Scenes




  • Joel was planned to be a recurring character in Hexagon, the original plan for the series after Wild Force. He would pilot a "special stealth chopper" in which the Hexagon Rangers would travel to fight evil across the Power Rangers universe.


  • Although never referred to as it in the show, Joel's Ranger file for Lightspeed Rescue lists his Ranger designation as "Green 3."
  • In the Time Force team up episode, it is revealed that he is now married to Ms. Fairweather.
  • He is the first Green Ranger to have Battlizer-like armor.
