Justin is the youngest human Power Ranger yet (Mack is the youngest as an android). His enthusiasm and energy helped him adapt to his responsibilities as a Turbo Ranger. Justin is a child prodigy with an intellect far past his peers. This gift has led to Justin being skipped ahead to 9th grade at Angel Grove High School, where coincidentally, his fellow Ranger Kat was teaching the incoming Freshmen. Justin's mother passed away several years ago, leaving Justin alone with his father Doug, who was a businessman and was always on business trips and ran a martial arts school, but later closed it down, making Justin the first Power Ranger to have lost one of their parents, followed by Dana Mitchell and Ryan Mitchell, Cam Watanabe, Emma Goodall, Preston Tien, and Brody Romero and Levi Weston (their mothers), and Sky Tate, and Lauren & Jayden Shiba (their fathers).
Justin discovered the identities of the Power Rangers by accident when he was visiting Rocky in the hospital when Rocky was recovering from a back injury, during a fighting practice and hid under Rocky's hospital bed when he heard the other Rangers come into the room, and saw them answer a call from Zordon on their communicators, and then saw them teleport back to the Power Chamber. With Rocky in the hospital, the Power Rangers were short a member when they needed to be at full strength in order to fight Divatox. Rocky chose Justin to be his replacement during the crisis and to become the Blue Turbo Ranger. The others were clueless at first, but they got use to him.
After Rocky recovered, he left the powers with Justin and chose to retire from a life as a Power Ranger after declaring that his powers are now in good hands since he had a lot of stuff to do in his new karate school. When being bullied by two punks, Justin was anxious to use his Ranger strength against them but chose not to, as the Ranger code states that he cannot use his powers for personal gain.
As Tommy, Kat, Adam, and Tanya had decided to retire from their Ranger duties, they chose four new replacements (T.J. Johnson, Cassie Chan, Carlos Vallerte, and Ashley Hammond). But, Justin still retained his powers.
Justin received super strength from an ant bite (when it was exposed to mutagenic chemicals), however, it did not allow Justin to access his Ranger powers. Although he liked the respect from others he gained from the strength, he gave it up to continue being a Ranger.
Justin's father returned to Angel Grove and started living with his son. The two were happy to be together again, however, Doug was offered a great new job that would mean he and Justin would have to move away. Doug however was not willing to move away if Justin wanted to stay in Angel Grove. Justin, knowing how much his dad wanted the job, told him not to make the decision right away. Shortly afterward, the Power Chamber was destroyed by Divatox's forces and Justin lost his powers along with the other Rangers. Desperate to pursue Divatox into space, Justin snuck into NASADA and told General Norquist that the Power Rangers needed the space shuttle. As the Rangers prepared to leave, Justin made the decision to stay behind with his dad. The other Rangers understood and they bid each other a brief but heartfelt goodbye. Following this, Justin told his dad to take the job and the two moved away from Angel Grove.
Although Justin had returned to a normal life, his father was very busy with work and frequently had to leave Justin alone. One night, Justin was found by Storm Blaster, who snuck him out, and took him to save the Space Rangers from Astronema's army and rescue Lightning Cruiser. Storm Blaster revealed he still had Justin's old Morpher, and he somehow had access to his Blue Turbo Ranger powers once more. He was reunited with the other Rangers and helped them save Lightning Cruiser. He also met Andros for the first time. He got back in time just before his father returned that morning, and although he had a mountain of work - upon seeing a neighbor father spend time with his son - Justin's father decided to take him fishing instead and presumably decided to cut back on his work to spend more time with his son.
It is possible that due to his connection with Storm Blaster, Justin still has access to the Turbo Powers and that due to T.J.'s connection to Lightning Cruiser may have given T.J. a spare Turbo Morpher (which T.J. would later use in Forever Red).
Legacy of Power
Now as an adult, Justin and other Turbo Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers.
Blue Turbo Ranger
As the Blue Turbo Ranger, Justin controlled the Mountain Blaster Turbo Zord as well as the Siren Blaster Rescue Zord. Justin also piloted the Storm Blaster. Morphing into his Turbo Ranger form, he would also be physically enhanced to have a teenage-like body (this is due to the fact that his Super Sentai equivalent was a teenager). This was based on Kou of the Howling New Star from Gosei Sentai Dairanger and Riki from Chōriki Sentai Ohranger.

The Blue Turbo Ranger Key is Justin'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 Noah Carver (Super Megaforce Blue) who uses it to fight as the Blue Turbo Ranger.

Behind the scenes
- Blake Foster didn't audition for the movie. He was just selected while filming another movie.
- When Justin is morphed, his suit actor was Colin Fletcher in the US footage and Yasuhiro Takeuchi in the Sentai footage.
- For Justin's helmetless scenes, Toei made a kid-sized replica of the Blue Racer suit to fit Blake Foster.
- Justin is the first Power Ranger to be able to morph without being an adult. Since the Power Coins & Zeo Crystals required the user to be an adult, since the Turbo Powers were created by the Rangers themselves they were able to circumvent the inability to morph for a pre-teen.
- Zordon choosing Justin to be a Power Ranger was due to the incident with Master Vile turning back time and causing the Rangers to become children and unable to morph. This left Earth defenseless and heavily relying on the Alien Rangers. These circumstances were taken into account when Zordon and the Rangers created the Turbo Powers.
- Justin is the only pre-teen Ranger. All other Rangers are shown to be in their late teens or young adults.
- Whenever Justin morphs, his body expands to that of an adult's physique, though his voice is left unaltered. In any scenes that involve Justin being helmetless, he appears at his normal age. Opposite, he never appears wearing a helmet when sized as a pre-teen.
- Justin is also the only Ranger to start and end his duties as a Turbo Ranger. Former Zeo Rangers Tommy, Adam, Tanya, and Kat left and were replaced by the future Space Rangers T.J., Carlos, Ashley, and Cassie.
- Justin is the final Blue Ranger of the Zordon Era to not join his team in the next season in the next installment (In Space), after Billy Cranston (Zeo) and Rocky DeSantos (Turbo).
- The visor on Justin's helmet as the Blue Turbo Ranger resembles the Chevrolet logo.
- His actor holds the Power Rangers record for most retakes for their first line.
- Justin is also the one Ranger in the series to suffer the most bullying in school (mostly due to his age at the time).
- Justin retains the intellectual and childish personality of his Sentai counterpart, Naoki Domon.
- As the Blue Turbo Ranger, Justin is the last of Zordon's chosen Rangers.
- Naoki Domon - Super Sentai counterpart in Carranger. See comparison page.
- Rocky DeSantos - The Ranger he replaced as Blue Ranger.
- Kou of the Howling New Star - The first child Sentai Ranger.
- TJ Johnson - The Ranger who replaced him as the Blue Ranger.
- Andros - The Ranger who replaced him as the fifth member of the team.
