But being a Ranger has always been about more than just powers, weapons, and a suit,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Even in the midst of dwindling resources and enemy attacks on every side, the Rangers show us at every turn and with every decision why they were chosen to wield the power of the Grid.”
