“Tommy Oliver has one of the most fascinating journeys in Power Rangers history — from villain to hero to mentor…but we’ve never seen what happened to him in his later years. MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: SOUL OF THE DRAGON is about the decisions we make when we fight for the right thing – and what we’ll do when that battle becomes personal. Sometimes to save the people you love most, you have to embrace parts of yourself that you thought – and hoped – you’d left behind.” – Dafna Pleban, Editor
