Character History

Lord Zedd, seeing as how the Power Rangers are on Edenoi, decides to take advantage of the situation and has Finster create Repellator despite his doubts it will do any good. Repellator immediately transports to a park outside of Angel Grove where  he runs into Kimberly who has remained on Earth due to suffering from a cold. Their battle ends in a stalemate as, though he is able to scramble Kimberly's molecules upon touch and make her more ill, he also catches her cold. Feeling under the weather, Repellator returns to the Moon Palace to meet Zedd and Rita's wrath and beg for something to take for his cold. He is sent to Finster and. though Finster advises 7 to 10 nights bed rest, Repellator urges him to just give him something to feel temporarily better. He refuses Finster's inoculation but accepts his bad-tasting tummy medicine before he Repellator returns to Earth feeling refreshed and the medicine has enhanced him with the ability to throw his scramblng powers as Disruptors. He finds Bulk and Skull pretending to be Power Rangers to a couple of girls and goes after them before Zedd worsens the situation by enlarging him with a Growth Bomb. However, just then he finds that the Rangers have returned from Edenoi, they confront him with Thunder Megazord and White Tigerzord. Whilst Repellator stamps on and smashes the pavement, the Megazords grab him and Power Punch him back but he is unfazed and blasts them with his disraptors so they pull out the Thunder Saber and tail sword. Repellator downs the Thunder Megazord with one hit and mandhandles the White Tigerzord but is slashed away and defeated by the Double Punch. They then finish off Repellator with the Thunder Saber's energy slash, making him spin around onto his spine where he explodes.
