Necessary Evil is a 2019-2020 crossover story event created by the staff at Boom! Studios and Hasbro that spanned across issues in both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Go Go Power Rangers. The event ran from June 2019 to June 2020 and included the conclusion of Go Go Power Rangers.

The final five issues of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers following Necessary Evil set up the next story event, Unlimited Power as well as the two new ongoing relaunch titles, Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers.[1]

Synopsis

The storyline showcases the events of the White Ranger's first year as the leader of the Power Rangers and Jason, Zack and Trini's activities as black ops Rangers in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic. Meanwhile, the Go Go Power Rangers tie-ins show how the three left the team and the comic's version of the events of "White Light". It also deals with some lingering consequences of the events from Shattered Grid, such as an intergalactic cult of Morphin Grid empowered individuals who threaten the existence of Rangers everywhere in the universe.
