History

This article contains content in reference to the main TV series, as well as supplemental material, such as the comics. A sliding/floating timeline applies. Story instances for TV and other media will be clearly marked.

Astronema created the Psycho Rangers, including Black, from individuals she destroyed and used as raw materials. Dark Specter gave her the ability to do so. After "making" them. They became staunchly loyal to their "mother". Tvicon.png TV STORY-Power Rangers: The Psycho Path During his creation, he was based on the brain wave patterns of Carlos Vallerte and had knowledge of all of Carlos' weapons and strategies.

He was the most level-headed of the team and one of the most willing to follow orders. Along with the other four Psycho Rangers, he almost successfully eliminated Carlos but was pulled out of the battle by Astronema. Psycho Black used the Psycho Rod and had a rock monster form. He was later was destroyed.

His spirit later joined the Psycho Rangers into attacking the Space Rangers at Secret City. His spirit was put on a digital card and sent to an unknown planet.

Lost Galaxy

A year later, Deviot found the cards and unleashed the Psychos on the Lost Galaxy Rangers. Psycho Black went after Damon Henderson- as there was no Black Lost Galaxy Ranger - and was destroyed for good by the Space and Lost Galaxy Rangers.

The Psycho Path

Upon his rebirth at the hands of Psycho Green, he became far more rational. As the apparent intelligence specialist and navigator of the team, Photon is the one who appeared to be in charge of gathering cultural data on other civilizations in the form of movies, music, food, and books. Photon appeared to be accepting of his lessons by Karone, but was also still a firm believer in acting immediately in defense of his family and team. It is revealed his human form is based on a victim of Astronema's. Karone gave him the name Photon. Comicicon.png COMIC STORY- Power Rangers: The Psycho Path

Notes

  • Although the Psycho Rangers must fight with their counterparts of the same color to take their energy, when they were revived in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, Psycho Black was shown to be satisfied with the idea of fighting a Green Ranger instead (as the Galaxy Rangers did not have a Black). This could suggest a link with Black and Green Power Ranger energies being the same or similar. This is further suggested in Power Rangers Super Megaforce where the Super Mega mode for Megaforce Black is green for some reason.
  • Unlike the other Psycho Rangers, Psycho Black's "collar" is gold instead of white.
  • Psycho Black's monster form is the only one to have never appeared in original American footage.
