The show welcomes Austin St. John (Jason Lee Scott on the popular Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series). He starred in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for 79 episodes from 1993-94, ending with the episode “Opposites Attract” (though Jason continued to be featured via body doubles, voice doubles, and stock footage before being written off in “The Power Transfer”). However, since that time he has spent his time as an EMT both in Afghanistan and in Washington, DC. After a multi year absence from the convention circuit Austin is f1nally attending conventions and meeting with Power Rangers fans; He has literally gone from TV superhero to real world hero.

Fellow Power Ranger alumni joining him will include:

Walter Jones (Zack Taylor on the popular Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series) who starred in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for 82 episodes from 1993-94,ending with the episode “Zedd’s Monster Mash”. Since that time he has had success as a world champion salsa dancer,and represented the United States in the 1992 Olympic Closing Ceremonies.

Karan Ashley (Aisha Campbell, the second Yellow Ranger in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series) replacing the late ThuyTrang (Trini Kwan). Staying on for two years, Ashley left the show in 1996.

David J. Fielding (Zordon,the founding creator in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series) A writer and an actor, he originated the role of Zordon on the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers television series, with his pre-f1lmed scenes being used for some years.

Barbara Goodson (Rita Repulsa,the primary villainess in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series and films) In addition to her iconic role as the main villain Barbara is best known mostly for her versatility in voicing original and dubbed cartoons, with over 100 anime or cartoon characters to her credit.

Kerrigan Mahan (Goldar, the primary henchman under the command of Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series) His most famous and sustaining role to date was the ever popular and fearsome, original evil space alien, Goldar, however he was also one of the pioneers of the resurgence of anime in the mid-80s,voicing numerous key roles in popular films and shows at the time.

Other talents highly regarded in the Pop Culture realm making an appearance include popular comic book artists such as Mark Morales, JK Woodward, Mark McKenna and Ande Parks to name a few.
