Power Rangers - We Are Rangers - IC
It was a bright shining day yet again at Angel Grover and years have passed since the signals blared danger. But it has been a while since anyone had roamed the halls of the fortress Zordon had once inhabited. The Rangers for all intents and purposes were gone as the world had no need for them. The first generation, who were known as the Aquitian Rangers, came from space and were using a different set of powers and but they're original job was to catch the criminal Rashim. They however were forced to leave before catching him and recruited the aid of six humans. Using an ancient power now forgotten the rangers gained their powers and kept their fight going against the Monster King Rashim. That was twenty years ago during the year 1993...the rangers have since long departed from their duties for one reason or another. Alpha 5 remembered the days of Zordon before he was killed by the General Hark as he managed to find an artifact that allowed him to breach the defenses of the command center. The first human power rangers sought revenge but they no longer needed Zordon themselves having completed their training went onto defeat Rashim and seal away Hark and the other generals. However those were long gone and twenty years had past. Alpha was busy, as usual, keeping the place maintained in hopes of the Rangers returning one day. However he doubted it would ever happen again. After all they had lost many of the rangers not to time but to the war. There were only one generation of rangers and when they no longer were needed they vanished. The sacrifice of the past rangers were something of note. Two of the six rangers died stalling for their friends, the pink and black ranger, and their morphers recovered by the Red Ranger and the Green Ranger later. The Yellow Ranger fought bravely but died five years later according to the green ranger of his wounds from that day. The Red Ranger was crippled in the final fight leaving him feeling powerless and guilty. The dinozords were all repaired and sent back to their hiding places for later use. Only one Ranger survived 'completely' unharmed The Green Ranger and the friend of the rangers who acted as a replacement mentor, The Phantom Ranger. The Phantom Ranger had went away with the Green Ranger after depositing the morpher and of the Green Ranger and the other morphers back in their places. Red Ranger lost his spirit but refused to give up his morpher seeing that he may end up using it again one day and went away to other parts seeking to find out if he still had the strength to be a ranger, and Yellow, before she died, vanished after the former Black Ranger and Pink Ranger were found dead. Yellow had felt guilty over his inability to help her comrades. In truth Alpha did not know where they were now nor did he know how to find them. However he did miss the Red and the Green Ranger, who were missing in action and left his morpher behind. But it was all for nothing as the General before the final battle had indeed stopped and killed Zordon in this very place they stood using some sort of black magic. His body...was hidden in a safe location. Thankfully he was stopped from destroying the rest of the things thanks to the Phantom Ranger. In Zordon's last breath he transferred what he could to the powerful Phantom Ranger, who was defending Zordon but failed to stop him, and he became protector and head of the rangers in his stead. Oh how Alpha missed those days so much if only he could have them back! Suddenly footsteps sounded from the entrance to the Rangers HQ. Alpha started to panic and rushed to the security consoles, what was going on!? He did not know because there had been no message from the Alien Rangers returning to help them or the returning of the others so it had to be an evil person! Alpha looked down the hall as the footsteps got closer and the panic really set in! "Who's there! Ay yi yi please don't com-" but before he could finish the familar sight appeared to Alpha. "You're...you're back!? Where's-" The black armored ranger raised his hand and shook his head. "Patience Alpha we must work quickly, I will explain everything later I promise. If we don’t work quickly bad things will happen. Now come with me or else the Rangers be destroyed forever. It will be just like old times." The Phantom Ranger said and then walked over to Alpha to explain what was to come...
The Setting for the story: 1 Week after the college opened (note what happened above is happening now and not one week earlier.)
It was another boring day in the required class of biology for Joe Hawke. The bell rang in the halls of Angel Grove Community College as Professor Dom explained that they were to study the final chapter on how tectonic plates worked for homework. The class couldn't get out soon enough as many of the students got up to leave. Joey himself was tired and had scribbled down two pages worth of notes. Of course Joe pulled out his cellphone and text messaged all the guys and girls of his little circle to meet him outside near the football field. It'd be nice to see if he could get a group together to see if he could get done a small essay in English 102 class with the help of his mates. "Hey professor I'm going to come by tomorrow for a bit of help if you don't mind." Joe called down to the professor who was getting his stuff all together but was having a hard time due to the fact he had a hard time walking due to a birth problem that left him with a stiff left leg and he nodded and told him to come by at two o'clock. The rest of the class was already trying to get out of the class as quick as possible and in fact were almost all gone minus a few adults who had questions. He couldn't wait to get outside, it was so cold in the school thanks to all the air conditioners! He straightened up his dark green jacket and golden watch, a gift from his father for passing high school, and got his stuff together. School it had always been a bother for the young Joey Hawke but he learned to deal with it after all that was what life was about right? Growing up and being a man was something he always looked forward too. Nothing he ever did in his childhood days could compare to what he wanted to do in his adult future. To be an something big like a manager or something along those lines was something he was planning on taking pride in. He headed to the door and wondered what the day was going to be like. He liked Professor Dom a lot the guy was a cool guy in his opinion. He was fair, he helped you out, and he was one hell of a straight and honest guy. He was the sort of teacher you sat down and laughed with but he was still very mature in his own way. Joe wondered how everyone was doing and hoped they were doing alright. Joe sighed when he managed to get outside the class rom and see that he would be a bit late maybe since there were a ton of things in the hall way and the classroom itself was far away from the bio room. "God damn it..." Joe said as he shouldered his backpack and walked out into the hall way.
