Kyle Higgins is on a tear with his Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers comic series from BOOM! He’s currently crafting the best Power Rangers comic of all-time. One of the reasons for this is the compelling story of Lord Drakkon, the dark version of Tommy that puts his Green With Evil version look soft. This new version of Tommy is already one of the most popular versions and has been included in the Power Rangers Legacy War mobile game.
When Jason David Frank, (Tommy, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) sat down with Joe Deckelmeier from That Hashtag Show he talked about his love for the Lord Drakkon character. (Jump to 20:28 in the video above)
“It is (amazing). It’s funny because you guys gave me another character, Lord Drakkon. Just another one under my, which I’ve added to my Power Ranger universe, like 5 and now I say Lord Drakkon (6), which is amazing. Kyle wrote it. I talked to Kyle last night, I talk to Kyle all the time.”
Frank recounts the first time he met with Kyle Higgins at a convention, not knowing what the writer had in store for his character.
“I met Kyle at a Comic Con, and I didn’t know who he was, and I was super nice to him at the end of the show, and here he is writing the most epic Power Rangers storyline ever, which I think is amazing.”
Frank talks about adding Lord Drakkon to his repertoire of Rangers’ that he’s portrayed and we know that Saban has a special 25th-anniversary announcement planned. Chrysti Ane from Ninja Steel also confirmed something is happening and there are rumors of past Rangers returning, Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce). This would be a great way for Saban Brands to show fans that they are invested in the 25th anniversary by bringing JDF back as Drakkon. Who knows if we’ll ever see the live-action version of the character with Jason David Frank in costume, but here’s to hoping.
