The Omega Rangers have just formed an uneasy alliance with two of their most classic villains.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Power Rangers #6 by Ryan Parrott, Francesco Mortarino, Simone Ragazzoni, Raul Angulo, Jose Enrique Fernandez, Igor Monti, Sabrina del Grosso and Ed Dukeshire, on sale now.
Since original Power Rangers Jason, Zack and Trini left Earth to become the intergalactic Omega Rangers, life has not been easy. With Lord Drakkon in tow, they have traveled the cosmos in search of any edge they can get against the impending threat of the Empyreal, ancient space gods. Unfortunately, they land in hot water when Jason and Zack are arrested alongside Astronema by none other than the SPD.

However, their luck starts to change in Power Rangers #6, when Jason’s life is saved by one of the Rangers’ worst enemies, Astronema.
Jason, Zack and Astronema are all scheduled to be deported from the outlaw planet of Onyx at dawn. Ecliptor isn’t willing to let his apprentice be imprisoned any longer, and although their alliance is unsteady at best, Trini and the alien Ranger Xi ultimately agree to join forces in rescuing their respective compatriots. With some help from a stolen skiff courtesy of Ecliptor’s own handiwork, he and Trini are easily able to board the speeding train on which their friends are being held. Breaking them out goes over without a hitch, but once everyone is topside, things take a turn for the worse. The SPD agents aboard are more than capable of holding their own on top of having their own attack drones, forcing Jason to save Astronema from one of their assaults. When the dust has settled Jason finds himself being thanked with the barrel of a gun pointed right between his eyes.
Astronema’s contempt for the Power Rangers seems to far outweigh her appreciation for having her life saved. Likewise, Jason’s boldness far outweighs his own sense of self-preservation, and he removes his helmet, telling Astronema she will have to look him in the eyes if she wants to kill him where he stands.
Astronema has grown up believing the Rangers responsible for killing her family, and she has spent the better part of her life hunting them down and killing them without remorse. While it doesn’t look like things have changed, the shot that finally rings out proves to be less than fatal for anyone she may have originally intended.
Astronema fires over Jason’s shoulder, taking out an attacking SPD agent and clearing their way once more. It’s a shocking turn for the villain, especially when viewed through the lens of all of her past deeds that have been revealed so far. Astronema didn’t just relish killing Power Rangers, she genuinely enjoyed putting them through as much agony as possible. Astronema even went so far as to nearly kill one of her earliest friends and greatest rivals to earn her name and place among Dark Specter’s army. Presumably, the Lord of Evil would be unhappy knowing his most valued lieutenant was sparing the lives of his empire’s most hated enemies. But with any luck, he won’t have to find out about it any time soon.
