Icon-goongerThis article is about a Ranger in Power Rangers RPM.

"For Dillon."
―Summer talking to Doctor K[src]

Summer Landsdown is Ranger Operator Series Yellow, otherwise known as Ranger Yellow, of the Ranger Operators in Power Rangers RPM. Her operation number is three.

Retroactively, she is also referred to as the RPM Yellow Ranger or Yellow RPM Ranger, though these are in reference to the show as opposed to proper labels.


History[]

Background[]

Summer did not start off kind or caring, as she once was a rich and spoiled heiress who seemed not to care about anyone but herself. She lived in a luxurious mansion, where her personal butler was frequently subjected to her mistreatment. Her parents were hardly ever around to take care of her, and she was surrounded by equally spoiled, self-centered friends.

Escape to Corinth[]

When Venjix forces attacked on her birthday, she was abandoned by her friends and staff during the evacuation, her friends literally throwing her from the transport.

While wandering aimlessly in search of help, she was found by Andrews, who took it upon himself to escort Summer to Corinth. Along the way, Summer began to gain a better understanding and appreciation for what Andrews had done for her all these years, and slowly began to return his kindness. When they were about 20 miles from Corinth, they were ambushed by Grinders, and Andrews was killed protecting her, forcing her to completely abandon her selfish personality to live up to the example he set.

Summer somehow managed to make it the rest of the way to Corinth City, where she reunited with her parents. As the shields were prepared to be raised, she got wind of a report that a fighter pilot had crashed outside of the city. She subsequently took a medical uniform and motorcycle and left to save the pilot despite her parents' objections. She found a downed Scott Truman and helped him return to Corinth before the city's shielding went up, making her rescue of Scott her first significant act of goodwill.

Get in Gear[]

After making it into the city of Corinth, Summer was recruited by Doctor K. Summer now serves as Ranger Yellow. She pilots the Bear Crawler.

When Corinth's shields were raised, Summer asked her parents to allow her to fend for herself. Her parents agreed on the condition that she would get married in a year. When her parents later showed up to have that promise kept, Summer had no desire to. Unfortunately, she soon learned her parents were no longer rich, as their assets had been lost during the Venjix takeover, and was forced to uphold her promise in order for her parents to regain their wealth. Summer ended up not marrying, however, as the ceremony was interrupted when Tenaya 7 came in to try and steal the Landsdown treasure, a Black Diamond. Summer and the rest of the Rangers eventually fended them off. Even though the diamond was lost, Summer's parents finally came to terms with Summer's decision to continue her life as a Power Ranger.

When Dillon and Ziggy arrived in Corinth and were subsequently jailed, it was Summer who first considered Dillon a suitable operator for the Series Black tech, willing to trust him while others would not. While the primary colored Rangers together were able to convince him to join, Summer's words in particular were later instrumental to prevent him from abandoning his duties.

It is revealed that Summer is attracted to both Scott and Dillon. While in the burning Venjix factory, Summer and Dillon almost share a kiss until water falls on them. They then almost kiss again before Gem & Gemma interrupt. Gemma noted in her diary that Summer is totally caring, especially when it comes to Dillon.

After Venjix is defeated for the last time, Summer leaves Corinth with Tenaya and Dillon to help rebuild the ravaged world.

"But if they're there, then my team will help them."
―Summer and other RPM Rangers mentioned by Scott[src]

However, Professor Cog protects himself with a hidden shield, and knocks down the Megazord with his own gun. When he leaves for the Samurai Rangers' dimension, only Scott pursues him. Later on, all of the Samurai Rangers apart from Jayden are transported to the RPM world. Summer, along with the other RPM Rangers help the Samurai Rangers return to their own world.

Personality[]

She has a kind personality, willing to trust others and give them the benefit of the doubt, even when no one else is willing to. She isn't above getting down to business when necessary, however. Summer is proficient at martial arts, making her a skilled combatant. She is also skilled at, and enjoys riding motorcycles.

Before, she has a bratty and spoiled personality due to her parents' wealth but thanks to her loyal butler who taught her humility, her attitude changed. As evidenced in the two part Ranger Yellow story, Summer has become disgusted with her parents (mostly because they wanted to marry her off to reacquire wealth) and their inability to understand she is not like them anymore. However, by the end of the story, Summer has managed to mend her relationship with them; they finally accept her new life and decide to get jobs.
