After talking about Green With Evil, it felt right to talk about Tommy’s most prominent role in MMPR (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)
May the power protect you, JDF. 🤍
After losing his ability to use the green ranger abilities, Tommy didn’t appear on screen for a while. This was disappointing for me as a child. I genuinely enjoyed his character, and the effort he put into redeeming himself.
While it wasn’t his fault for committing the evil acts that he did, Tommy was a good person, and wanted to do right by everyone.
Tommy had been an integral addition to the Power Rangers team, and him being brought back taking the mantle of the newly created white ranger propelled the series forward in popularity.
It was the perfect redemption arc. Tommy had a troubled childhood, and despite all the unfortunate events that happened during his life, he always wanted to fight for the greater good.
He was a loveable rogue, he was admirable, and the series wouldn’t have been the same without JDF.
