History

The Polarizer

A massive solar storm was on its way to Angel Grove and Lord Zedd knew that this was a once every one hundred years storm and decided to use the increased electricity in the air to manipulate the Earth's polarity and cause doomsday. To this end, he decided to use Billy's special science project called a polarizer to create a monster to manipulate said polarity and sent down Goldar with the Putty Patrol to steal it. They succeeded and Magnet Brain was the resulting creation, wielding a staff which possessed magnetic abilities and could demolecularize the magnetic field of Earth, causing the planet to disintegrate.

Magnet Brain's first act immediately after his creation was to pitch his staff high into the air where it sprayed the city with metal shavings which caused the city to tilt at a 90 degree angle. As seen on the Viewing Globe, he went mad with power and started to blow things apart with spiral blasts in the park. He then moved on and attacked some random factory and encountered the main Power Rangers since Tommy was out looking for the Angelettes who had been lost in the madness. The Rangers did a Dairanger pose but Magnet Brain blasted them with spirals from his staff, messing with their polarity in such a way that they were magnetically repulsed from one another. He then summoned Putties to defeat the divided team and remained on the sidelines until he saw Jason atop some piping and blasted him to the ground where the Red Ranger then tried to use his Blade Blaster on Magnet Brain. Once he did this however, Magnet Brain used his polarity powers to make it misfire and blast him down as he then did to Zack when he tried the same thing. Even in spite of their sidearms backfiring, the Power Rangers quickly decimated his Putties and formed the Power Blaster which pushed him along the ground and knocked him against the wall but barely harmed him. Zedd then threw a Growth Bomb to make Magnet Brain grow which he caught and was happy to get "some serious pull" before using it to grow giant. When the Rangers arrived in the Thunder Megazord, Magnet Brain pulled out a gigantic magnet and welcomed them to his party and promised they'd really enjoy this before throwing the magnet which magnetically attached to its chest. He then cackled maniacally before he used his staff to fry the Megazord until it ripped the magnet in two with its bare hands. This angered Magnet Brain and he charged to try and bash it to pieces but they then destroyed the monster with the Thunder Saber. The Megazord turned and sheathed it as Magnet Brain collapsed onto his stomach and exploded. Upon his defeat, Billy's Polarizer returned to normal.

Personality

Magnet Brain was an extremely arrogant and confident monster that stopped at nothing in his mission to destroy the Power Rangers and destabilize the magnetic field of Earth. However, he was also deeply loyal to Lord Zedd to

Powers and Abilities

  • Strength: Magnet Brain was strong enough to pitch his staff high into the atmosphere with just one arm.
  • Durability: Magnet Brain was blasted by the Power Blaster and was completely unfazed and the attack also slammed him into a wall which also didn't hurt him.
  • Sight: Magnet Brain was able to see despite having no actual eyes.
  • Spiral Blast: Magnet Brain could charge up his fist with blue energy and thrust it forth, firing a giant blue spiral forward that cause giant explosions and blasted Jason off of some scaffolding.
    • Polarity Reversion: Magnet Brain’s spiral blasts could also reverse the polarity on Jason and Zack's Blade Blasters and make them misfire.
  • Z-Putty Summoning: Magnet Brain could summon Zedd's Putties to assist him in battle.

Arsenal

  • Magnet Staff: Magnet Brain had a staff with the symbols for positive and negative energy on either end of it.
    • Depolarization: Magnet Brain could pitch his staff his into the air where it begins to destroy the Earth's polarity. According to Zedd, this would cause the Earth to disintegrate.
      • Polarization Blast: Magnet Brain could also charge blue energy into his staff and fire a spiral from the red N portion which reversed the Rangers' polarity so much that they were be repelled from one another with enough force that Zack was thrown into a roll.
    • Magnet Lightning: Magnet Brain could power up his giant magnet with his staff  to electrocute his opponents.
  • Magnet: Magnet Brain could generate a giant magnet to throw at his enemies and restrain them.
    • Electrocution: Magnet Brain could empower it with his staff to electrocute whoever his magnet attached to.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Just like many other characters, Magnet Brain was voiced by Michael Sorich.
    • Magnet Brain sounded almost exactly like Squatt and this is no more evident than when he claimed “Magnet Brain fears no one!”

Notes

  • Magnet Brain is probably the most dangerous monster in the show's history because he could obliterate the entire Earth just by throwing his staff into the air and waiting.
  • In Dairanger, the Power Blaster was actually TenmaRanger's supercharged fist.
