|This article is about a/an comic book issue in the Power Rangers comic sub-franchise by Boom! Studios.|
MMPR/TMNT Issue 1 is the first issue of the five part crossover mini-series between the Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers.
The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver (a.k.a. The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger) but soon discover he's joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan! As the Rangers are sent reeling by this betrayal, they're confronted by another (fr)enemy... the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Can these heroes find a way to work together to defeat the bad guys and save the world from total destruction?!
The story opens on a series of scenes where various battles have ended. The first is in the sewer home of the Ninja Turtles in New York City with Donatello's Bo staff broken in half and Zack's Power Axe wedged in the floor. The second is at a wrecked Angel Grove Youth Center with Kimberly's Power Bow broken near the counter and Mikey's Nunchucks laying on a chair. The third is in a lab soemwhere, with one of Leo's katanas and Jason's Power Sword embedded in the floor. The final image is Rita's palace on the Moon, with signs that Raphael was there as his Sais are discarded, with one embedded in Rita's telescope.
- to be added
- Trini mentions in conversation that the Power Rangers have had "47 consecutive victories" and the team mentions that Rita is still active. This means that they are, at least from the point of the standalone continuity of this mini-series story, in alternate versions of the events of the later first season.
- When Tommy calls for the Foot Ninjas to retreat, he cries out "Ninja, VANISH!". This is a line from the 1990 live action Ninja Turtles movie spoken by Master Tatsu.
- After Tommy flees with the Foot, Donatello teases Raphael that he got "Shoryukened" by a Foot Ninja. This is a reference to the Street Fighter games, another franchise that has crossed over with Power Rangers.
- When Kimberly addresses her concerns over Tommy's whereabouts to Alpha and Zordon, she mentions Tommy could have been kidnapped by an evil version of himself from another dimension as one of the scenarios of something bad happening to him. This is a reference to the Rangers first encounter with Lord Drakkon.
