"I'm bringing our lord back to us."
―Ranger Slayer to Finster 5[src]

The Ranger Slayer is the version of Kimberly Ann Hart from the World of the Coinless who serves under Lord Drakkon as a brainwashed Power Ranger, until she is freed. She is also the pilot of the Gravezord.

Character History

The World of the Coinless and "The Fall of the Rangers"

The history of this version of Kimberly Hart parallels the history of her counterpart from the central timeline until events which creates the World of the Coinless. Kimberly fought alongside her fellow Power Rangers against the forces of Rita Repulsa and Lord Drakkon, culminating into "The Fall of the Rangers" battle that saw the deaths of Jason Scott, Billy Cranston, and her world's version of Zordon. As a result of the battle, Lord Drakkon claimed the Tyrannosaurus, Sabertooth Tiger, and Mastodon Power Coins. Zack Taylor and Trini Kwan would eventually escape and form the resistance movement known as The Coinless.

Kimberly was also a member of the resistance; helping get people to safety and running reconnaissance missions with Skull. But, at some unknown point after the death of her universe’s Matthew, who died from the sustain of his injury, just as she is planning to kill Drakkon alone, she is by captured Drakkon instead. Even though the Pterodactyl Power Coin was claimed with others, she was given new powers as the the Ranger Slayer, while being brainwashed with an evil energy within the Bow of Darkness.

"Shattered Grid"

After Lord Drakkon's defeat during the Black Dragon arc of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, he was dragged back into the present day by accident; eventually getting captured and remanded to the care of Promethea and its CEO (and Red Ranger of the 1969 Power Rangers) Grace Sterling . Meanwhile, on Drakkon's world, the power structures was under revolt as the Coinless were making strides and Scorpina and her loyalists were going rogue; a situation exacerbated by the arrival of the HyperForce Rangers . In desperation, Finster 5 gave the last shard of the Green Chaos Crystal to the Ranger Slayer with the hopes that she could use it and the Gravezord to track Lord Drakkon and bring him back. Unfortnately for her, she arrived at a point when the Rangers were still new and long before Tommy Oliver ever arrived in Angel Grove. Desperate, she tried to contact Finster 5, but failed. It was then that Rita Repulsa arrived and offered to charge the Gravezord for her.  Later the Ranger Slayer sent her Gravezord into downtown Angel Grove to draw out the Power Rangers, and while it attacked them, she suck into the Command Center with her Pterodactyl Power Coin. She used a Quantum Field Disruptor to disrupt Zordon’s brain, and ripped off Alpha 5's arm. She then issued an ultimatum: If they cooperate and let her use the Command Center’s sub-spectrum long-range communication array, she’ll leave them all in peace. When Alpha 5 got defiant, she readied to brutally attack him but then was attacked by the main world's Kimberly Hart, who ordered her to keep her hands off of Alpha.

Personality

The Coinless universe Kimberly remained the same as her prime counterpart, but became far much tragic on loosing her world’s Jason, Billy and Matthew at the hands of Lord Drakkon. This is leads her to decide to work alone for the sake of her friends and some of her friends’ living counterparts.

Due to being brainwashed with the evil energy in the Bow of Darkness implanted by Drakkon, Kimberly is turned ruthless as Drakkon. However, her feelings for Matthew is the only one that keeps the brainwashing influence from completely controlling her.

Behind the Scenes

  • Kyle Higgins described the Ranger as someone we have seen before, but not in this way. The clue to her identity as Kimberly was actually set up and somewhat foreshadowed early in the comics during the Black Dragon Arc. Four out of five Rangers of the Mighty Morphin team were either dead or de-powered in the World of the Coinless as seen in the story: Jason and Billy were murdered by Lord Drakkon when he first got his fused powers, Zack and Trini had lost their Power Coins to Lord Drakkon but managed to survive as part of the resistance. Up until the reveal at WonderCon 2018's Boom! Studios panel, readers assumed the Kimberly of the World of the Coinless was killed by Lord Drakkon due to the fact that the Ranger Sentries need the energy of specific Power Coins to be able to morph and her coin's powers were being used by the Pterodactyl Sentries. Adding to this ruse was the fact that Kimberly was never seen, except in flashbacks during "The Fall of the Power Rangers".

Notes

  • Coinless Kimberly shares some similarities as two prime counterparts of Tommy Oliver (original live-action and his 2016 comic book counterpart) (as a Green Ranger), such as being temporarily brainwashed, and began to redeem themselves in return while initially rather work alone for the sake of their friends.
