Mighty Morphin #22 is the twenty-second issue of the Boom! Studios comic book series, Mighty Morphin.
This is the ninth issue in the Charge To 100 story event leading up to the 100th issue of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics at Boom! Studios. This is also Mat Groom's final issue on Mighty Morphin. It features the first appearance of the Pink Emissary.
A RANGER RETURNS! With their help, the team can finally turn the tide of battle, but not without consequences. Will the Rangers forge a new path together despite their differences? Meanwhile, Kim receives some much-needed perspective from a fellow Ranger, offering her a glimpse of hope for the future. As the dust begins to settle, will this Mighty Morphin team settle on a sense of identity, and discover their true role in the universe?
The distortion caused by the unstable Morphin Grid causes manifestations of future Power Ranger villains to appear in the now corrupted pocket dimension.
Tommy is struck down by the Ransik doppelgänger, who relishes at the thought of killing another Ranger. Kimberly rescues her de-morphed and unconscious lover and hides, worried he is dead until she reads a pulse. A voice reassured her that the “impressive” Metallic Armor Billy developed was the only reason Tommy is still alive.
Kimberly turns around to see a Pink Emissary appear, confused as there should be only three Emissaries. Pink states they exist beyond what is known to handle specific threats to the Grid such as what is transpiring in the pocket dimension. Kimberly apologizes, she was afraid and she pushed Billy to use the untested Metallic Armor and it has broken the Grid. Pink does agree that the prototype Armor damaged the Grid, but Kimberly’s fear of the future attracted the malicious Dark Grid shadows that are echoes of future events. Kimberly asks why shouldn’t she be afraid, explaining to Pink that there was a timeline where Tommy was killed and the Power Rangers will have to be replaced with new Rangers. Pink thinks that while Kimberly has a bit of knowledge of The Shattering, she also has misconceptions about the details. Unlike their peers, Pink apologizes for erasing their memories and feels that concealing the memories of the events caused more calamity rather than safeguarding the Grid. Kimberly gets her memories restored, she remembers interacting with Jen and that she will not be replaced, but established a legacy of heroines yet to be with causes of justice all their own. She feels so stupid for messing up, but Pink thinks that all living beings make mistakes but now she is closer to the Pink spectrum of the Morphing Grid than ever before and can call upon her legacy to defeat the shadows and stabilize the Grid. Kimberly says cannot do it alone as the Pink Emissary departs.
