Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #3 is the third issue of the five-part crossover mini-series between the Power Rangers of the Boom! Studios comics and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing.

Synopsis

Rita Repulsa faces off against Shredder for control of the weapon that will change the Power Rangers forever! No matter who wins, the world will never be the same! As the two villains battle, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers must find a way to storm the Foot Clan base to save Tommy, as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles step up to help their new allies in an unexpected way.[1]

Plot

Shredder and Rita fight, Shredder clad in a Green Ranger costume that combines aspects of the Mighty Morphin' suit and his usual armor. Rita shouts that he's corrupted the Power Coin, but Shredder corrects her that he has bent it to his will. Shredder is impressed with the power boost the coin has bestowed upon him, enhancing his strength, speed, and senses. Bebop and Rocksteady corner Rita's minions, most of whom are unarmed and cower against the two gun-wielding mutants, until Goldar attacks Rocksteady and orders the others to rally to him and make their Empress proud. Rita warns Shredder she has defeated greater opponents than him, but Shredder is unimpressed and reminds her he's already broken one Power Ranger today, and intends to break the others - will Rita stand in his way, or by his side? The two clash with a force so powerful that both their minions cease fighting, wondering if they killed each other. As Shredder locks his blades with Rita's staff, he tells her he knows about her powers from his allies in Dimension X, and believes they could be allies. The two refuse to yield to the other, but agree to a temporary partnership in the name of defeating their enemies.

In Tommy's cell, he calls out to Tyler and tells him to let him out, but Tyler refuses to dishonor his clan. Tommy tries to reach out to Tyler, as he knows what it is like to be brainwashed, but Tyler replies that Tommy can't mock him after how lucky he's been. Tommy reminds Tyler that they grew up on the streets together, enraging Tyler. Tyler reminds Tommy that he left, but Tommy defends that he was adopted and he wasn't going to remain in the boys' home the two lived in. Tyler accuses Tommy of surfing in California while he grew up on the streets surviving alone, and the Foot gave him the purpose and family he needed. Tommy is disgusted and tells Tyler he doesn't even know who he is anymore.

Michelangelo brings home pizza with unusual topping choices, grossing out the Rangers. Billy inquires if Splinter began as a human that was turned into a rat or a rat that turned into a humanoid, and Splinter is ambiguous in his response, confusing Billy. Trini trains with Raphael and comments on how angry he is, when he should be happy he doesn't have to deal with the stresses of family and school life, but Raphael is incensed by the implication his life is easy. April consoles Kimberly about Tommy, but Kimberly corrects she isn't worried, she's angry, and if Tommy isn't really in trouble, he'll have to deal with her. The Rangers are contacted by Alpha and Zordon, who have located Tommy with the energy signature of his morpher being activated. They will teleport the Rangers as close as they can, but warn them to be careful. The Turtles offer to come along, but the Rangers politely refuse, as they have a better chance of dealing with Tommy alone. The five morph and are teleported away, leaving the Turtles in awe.

At the dockyards, the Rangers split up to search. Zack and Billy chat with Jason about inviting the Turtles to come to Angel Grove to hang out. In another section of the area, Trini and Kimberly agree this smells like a trap. They spot a Green Ranger and call out to him, but the Ranger turns revealing the Green Ranger Shredder. He blasts the two back and forces them to demorph, and the boys arrive and are also forced to demorph. The weakened Rangers try to stand and Jason attempts to morph again, but Shredder attacks before he can. Alpha reports some sort of distortion field around their position, preventing them from morphing or using their communicators, or being teleported out. With the Rangers in trouble and no way to contact them, Zordon orders Alpha to contact the Turtles.

The unmorphed Rangers fight the Shredder, who compliments their skills, but they lack stamina. Shedder mocks them, questioning if they deserve their powers if they are so weak without them. As Shredder draws the Dragon Dagger, Casey Jones arrives and ambushes him from above. He explains that since the Turtles couldn't teleport here, he was sent in first since he was closest to the area. Shredder overpowers Casey and Zack as the Foot arrive, and Shredder demands their Power Coins. The Rangers realize this is a fight they cannot win and retreat to a point they can use their communicators. Shredder calls them cowards and warns them that if they do not hand over their Power Coins by sunrise, Tommy's life is forfeit. The Rangers make it out of the distortion field and teleport away, and Shredder contacts Rita to tell her the Rangers are powerless; she can begin when ready. Rita gives instructions to Finster to send down his monster.

In New York, a monster called Wyldfire appears with a squadron of Putties. The Rangers view the attack from the Command Center and know it isn't coincidence that Rita attacks right as they lose their powers, she must be working with Shredder. The Rangers are despondent over their inability to morph, and Zordon explains that there is a molecular disruption field affecting their DNA. The Power Coins are still active, but the Rangers can't use them. There is also still the matter of rescuing Tommy from Shredder. Billy suggests a radical solution: the five teenagers hand their morphers over to the Turtles and April.

Notes

  • Billy asks Splinter if he was a rat that was turned into a humanoid by the mutagen, or a human that was turned into a rat-humanoid, a nod to Splinter's origins in different TMNT media varying on this point. Splinter pointedly does not clarify, merely responding "exactly".
