|This article is about a/an event in the Power Rangers comic sub-franchise by Boom! Studios.|
The Shattering is a term used by the Emissaries Three and some who remember the events of the old universe to describe the unnatural cosmic event where Lord Drakkon successfully entered the Morphing Grid and after defeating them, tore the Grid apart to warp the reality of the multiverse into his twisted, singular "perfect Earth".
While the Morphin Grid was eventually restored thanks to the efforts of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the damage done beforehand has lasting side effects, such as changes to the timeline and large amounts of the Morphin Grid's energy "leaking out" and being absorbed in its raw form by various lifeforms across the universe. This created beings known as the Empowered, who had been enhanced by the raw energy to become dangerous superbeings.
