By all accounts, it was the introduction of the Green Ranger during Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Season 1 that moved the show from “kinda cool” to “full-on pop culture phenomenon.”  The main issue came when the footage of DragonRanger (the Japanese character from whom the character wwas adapted) ran out.  In those early, experimental days, Saban simply stole the Sixth Ranger from the NEXT series, Dairanger, giving Tommy a new look and really paving the way for the changes to come.  It also sparked an endless debate about which is cooler (and don’t even get me started on his later Red and Black ranger forms) that leads us to today’s bicameral query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) actually likes the white suit better, but prefers the shield of the green one, asking: Which Tommy Oliiver Mighty Morphin’ Ranger form is the coolest: Green or White?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I have never seen much American Power Rangers, but I’ll go with green. I’m a sucker for animal themed helmets where face part is in the mouth.
