Ryan Parrott, who has written an almost-Cullen-Bunn level of titles from Star Trek to Batman to Army of Darkness, adds to the press release:

"This is a brand new beginning for an all-new Mighty Morphin team featuring characters you know – and an all new Green Ranger. This book is a chance to explore the past, present and future of the team in ways you've never seen before. Coming out of Necessary Evil, there seemed like an opportunity to not only start fresh but focus the story in on our new MIGHTY MORPHIN team like we haven't before."

Artist Marco Renna, who will bring the series to life, considers it a "dream come true." More information on the upcoming relaunch was given by editor Matthew Levine

"The UNLIMITED POWER era is all about new beginnings for two new teams of Power Rangers as they meet new allies, new enemies, new secrets and an all new Green Ranger. Both of these new series will be critical for long time fans and present an exciting jumping on point for new readers who will learn that the true history of the Power Rangers isn't what they expected."
