How are we today? Good? Hopefully so. I bring you interesting news from the Power Ranger fandom, it looks like we are getting a reunion of sorts… I need to really emphasize the “of sorts” parts here, because at a best we have a SyFy special and at worst we have a pipe-dream. “The Order” appears to be the brain child of Karan Ashley (MMPR Yellow Ranger) and David Fielding (Zordon).

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a Superhero. I grew up watching Batman and Spiderman on TV watching with bated breath as they fought villains and saved the day. I would read and reread Superhero books and comics until I could recite them by heart, I would pretend to be Peter Parker, struggling to fit in school, find friends and get the girl, but more than that I was also Spider-Man, the courageous hero who was willing to sacrifice everything for others. I would often daydream about what it would be like, to have people cheer when they saw me, to help those in need, to be able to save the day. In those fantasies, I became who I was always destined to be… A Superhero.
