Power Rangers Unlimited Reveals the True Power of Dark Specter
Power Rangers Unlimited is pulling back the curtain on the terrifying true power of Dark Specter
The following contains major spoilers for Power Rangers Unlimited: The Coinless #1, on sale now from BOOM! Studios.
While the Power Rangers have taken on what seems like countless monstrous threats over the past thirty years, few if have exuded the same kind of horror as Dark Specter, the biggest and most dangerous villain the heroes have ever faced. Even worse, Dark Specter doesn't even need to physically be on the battlefield for his power to be felt, as he has just painfully reminded Lord Drakkon .
After freeing the villainous Kiya from her imprisonment on Safe Haven and bringing her to the World of the Coinless, Lord Drakkon promises his unwitting companion that their travels will all be worth it once they return to his palace. However, as seen in Power Rangers Unlimited: The Coinless #1 (by Adame Cesare, Moisés Hidalgo, Arthur Hesli, and Ed Dukeshire), this couldn't be farther from the truth. Not only has the World of the Coinless fallen to pieces in the time since Drakkon was deposed, another even greater evil has made his old home into their new stomping grounds. Even worse, the latest legion of monstrosities to lay claim to this devastated Earth belongs to Dark Specter - and they are capable of much more than commandeering abandoned worlds.

Dark Specter Has Taken Over the World of the Coinless
First appearing in 1998's "From Out of Nowhere," the two-part debut episode of Power Rangers in Space , Dark Specter has long been the most menacing threat in the franchise's history. In the original series, Dark Specter was the head of the United Alliance of Evil, and as that organization's Grand Monarch, he served as the overarching antagonist of the franchise from its beginning all the way through to his proper debut in Power Rangers in Space . Even after his apparent demise in that series' two-part finale, Dark Specter's name has continued to strike fear into the hearts of Rangers everywhere, especially in the world of the comics.
Although it isn't shown exactly how Dark Specter conquered the World of the Coinless, it isn't hard to imagine the events that led up to its fall. As the home world of the Tommy Oliver who would become Lord Drakkon, the World of the Coinless suffered greatly under Rita Repulsa's short-lived rule, with the problems she introduced only being compounded by Drakkon's reign. Despite Drakkon eventually being defeated, the World of the Coinless continued to suffer from the scars left behind by the wars that once consumed it, leaving the door open for future conflicts to arise. While the Ranger Slayer and Scorpina managed to hold things together for some time, what little resources they were left with in the wake of Drakkon's defeat would never have been enough to stop Dark Specter's army from washing over them as easily as it had so many other worlds before theirs.
This is evident when confronted with what exactly Dark Specter's army looks like in the comics and their capabilities. Whereas the Dark Specter of the original series never had a specific breed of minions, his comic book counterpart has been replete with molten, zombielike beings to do his bidding across the cosmos. To make matters worse, these creatures aren't just faceless soldiers of Dark Specter's design, but the remains of those who fell in battle against him. The Kimberly Ann Hart of the World of the Coinless has become acutely aware of this thanks to a zombified Zack Taylor, who is aware enough of his past life to use his memories against his former friend, although what she doesn't know about them is even more alarming.

Dark Specter's Army is Worse Than the Power Rangers' Usual Foes
Beyond their capacity for reaping death and destruction and the emotional damage they are occasionally able to deal, Dark Specter's minions are his literal eyes and ears on the worlds they inhabit. Considering he himself cannot cross into another dimension without a proper Vessel to carry his essence , this ability affords the villain an opportunity to survey the battlefield without ever having to step into harm's way. Apart from the tactical edge this provides, it also allows Dark Specter to gather information about his enemies as they battle their former friends and loved ones.
There appears to be no way of telling exactly how many minions Dark Specter has on the World of the Coinless , but the fact that he can see through their eyes makes his followers exponentially deadlier than they would be on their own. Between their memories, the inside look at the resistance forces they offer, and their propensity for deadly violence, Dark Specter's army is by far the most dangerous foes in the entire Power Rangers franchise . Other, more iconic enemies like the Putty Patroller may have more variation to offer or have come into their own since arriving in BOOM! Studios' comic book universe, but there are none that are as versatile (and deadly) as Dark Specter's rocky zombies.
Justice league's most powerful hero just became an unstoppable villain.
As the Death of the Justice League claims DC's most iconic heroes, the publisher's most powerful force for good reveals it's breaking bad.
Warning: contains spoilers for Justice League #75!
DC’s most powerful hero, the Spectre, has been corrupted, and there are no Justice League heroes left to stop him. As the embodiment of justice, The Spectre has long fought on the side of angels, but in Justice League #75 , he is corrupted by the Great Darkness , creating one of the most powerful evil forces in the DC Universe. The Spectre then uses his power to kill several heroes!
The Spectre is not only one of DC’s most powerful characters, he is one of the publisher's oldest, tracing his roots back to comics’ Golden Age. Created by one of the creators who brought the world Superman - Jerry Siegel - along with Bernard Baily, the Spectre was corrupt cop Jim Corrigan. After he was killed, the afterlife was denied Corrigan; instead, he was changed into the Spectre and sent back to Earth to avenge evil and dole out God’s wrath. The Spectre has also been a member of the Justice Society, but has been missing from the DC Universe since the beginning of the Infinite Frontier era. Now, with Dark Crisis on the horizon, the Spectre has returned .

Pariah, a survivor of the first Crisis , and the voice of the Great Darkness, has unleashed his “Dark Army” on the combined forces of the Justice League and the Justice League Incarnate. The Dark Army - including Darkseid, Doomsday and Neron - have been possessed by the Great Darkness and are able to overwhelm the two teams. Green Lantern John Stewart, who recently harnessed the power of the Godstorm, arrives to help the League, but as he and his green light constructs fight the Dark Army, Stewart realizes the Quintessence is gone. He turns around, and finds himself face to face with the Spectre, who has renounced his title as the “Spirit of Vengeance” and is now “the Spirit of Darkness.” The Dark Spectre then seemingly kills Green Lantern John Stewart , and the rest of the League soon falls to the Dark Army. Justice League #75 is written by Joshua Williamson, drawn by Rafa Sandoval, inked by Jordi Taragona, colored by Matt Herms and lettered by Josh Reed.
Although his exact power levels have fluctuated over the years, the Spectre has consistently ranked as one of DC’s most powerful characters, since his first appearance in 1940’s More Fun Comics #52. As the embodiment of divine justice, the Spectre’s power is so great he can move planets and travel throughout the multiverse; he fought the Anti-Monitor to a standstill in Crisis on Infinite Earths and has faced down many other major league threats.
As his powers derive from the divine Source, it had seemed the Spectre was beyond corruption, but the Great Darkness has managed to do just that, taking an instrument of justice and twisting it to dark and evil ends. The Spectre wasted no time doing his new master’s will, seemingly killing John Stewart, who recently received a cosmic upgrade himself in the form of the Godstorm. The Spectre’s slaughter of Stewart was a show of power, one that demoralized the surviving League members, and set the tone for the upcoming Dark Crisis .
Very few big DC events go by without an appearance from the Spectre and Dark Crisis will be no different. However, the Spectre has been corrupted, turned into an evil spirit bent on murder and violence, and this time there's no Justice League to stand against him.

Justice League #75 is available now from DC Comics.

Dark Specter Is The Thanos Behind Power Rangers' Darkest Hour Event
Posted in: Boom , Comics | Tagged: Adam Cesare , boom studios , Dark Specter , Federico Sabbatini , Meghan Camarena , Melissa Flores , MMPR , Moises Hidalgo , power rangers
Darkest Hour promises to be the biggest event in the Rangerverse and kicks off with Power Rangers Unlimited: Coinless #1 this week.
Hard to believe that Power Rangers has been continuously on the air for 30 years this year, and even harder to believe that Boom Studios has made the franchise a top-selling title in comic shops for over seven years. Seriously, I remember walking through the hotel meeting rooms at San Diego Comic-Con with Eric Stephenson, Publisher of Image Comics and laughing at it. Now Image Comics is publishing GI Joe and Transformers – and also Radiant Black and The Massive-Verse, which is basically Power Rangers with the serial numbers rubbed off.
It also helps that it became a mainstay in the bookstores and libraries and was funded by two massive direct-to-consumer campaigns on Kickstarter, all of which has turned Power Rangers into one of the most consistent and longest-running team superhero series in modern comics. I know, seriously.
Fitting for the 30th anniversary, Boom recently announced the big in-series Power Rangers event this year will be Darkest Hour, which sounds like a Green Lantern event, but is officially kicking off in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #111 in August. The publisher is promising that this in-series event will be their biggest yet – even more impactful than the original Shattered Grid event. And while the majority of the event, as past Rangerverse events have, will take place in the flagship title… there are tie-in issues that Ranger fans will want to be on the lookout for.
So why does Darkest Hour promise to be the biggest event in the Rangerverse yet? And how do the two upcoming Power Rangers Unlimited specials – this week's Power Rangers Unlimited: Coinless #1 and next month's Power Rangers Unlimited: Hyperforce #1 – tie into it?
Two words: Dark Spectre. Sorry, spelt the American way, Dark Specter.
First mentioned in an episode of Power Rangers Zeo in 1996, Dark Specter didn't appear in the TV series until the first episode of Power Rangers In Space in 1998. Already established as the "Grand Monarch Of Evil" back then, Dark Specter's power and legend have grown exponentially since then. Beginning as early as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4 written by Massive-Verse architect Kyle Higgins, and continued through Ryan Parrott' s definitive run and into the current run by Melissa Flores, Dark Specter has been established as the true power behind all of the villains that have threatened the Rangers with an ultimate goal of destroying the Morphin Grid forever. Over the course of 100+ issues and related limited series and specials, Dark Specter has manipulated Rita Repulsa (now Mistress Vile), Lord Zedd, Lord Drakkon, and countless others for his endgame.
In short, Dark Specter is to the Rangerverse what Thanos was to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or what Emperor Palpatine was to the Skywalker Saga of Star Wars. Boom Studios (along with Higgins, Parrott, Flores, and numerous other writers) has managed to not only build this uber narrative over seven years of intertwined comic book stories, but also neatly connected the dots across numerous seemingly unconnected Power Ranger TV series. If you've been reading the Power Ranger comics, this may be one of those rare instances where an event will live up to the hype.
And not just for regular monthly customers who pick up the single-issue comics at their comic shops, but also the tens of thousands of fans who have been keeping up with the series in collections and thousands who purchased complete hardcover sets through the Kickstarters. How many of them will show up in comic shops beginning in August to read Darkest Hour in real-time?
And more pressing, as I understand it, lead-in issues are hitting store shelves beginning this Wednesday with Power Rangers Unlimited: Coinless #1. Not only does this standalone special feature the return of two of the most popular characters that first debuted in the Boom comic series – Lord Drakkon and Ranger Slayer – but it reveals that Dark Specter has corrupted the Morphin Grid in Drakkon's Coinless universe in addition to the primary Rangerverse forcing Drakkon to assemble a Suicide Squad-style team dubbed the Drakkon Rangers. First appearances tend to have long-lasting effects in Boom's Ranger comics and from what I'm hearing by the end of the special it's clear the Drakkon Rangers will play a larger role in Darkest Hour.
I also expect that will be the case next month when Power Rangers Unlimited: Hyperforce #1 hits comic book store shelves. Not only is the Hyperforce team one of the most popular Ranger teams starring in their first-ever dedicated comic, but Dark Specter played a major role in the finale of the TTRPG web-series so it stands to reason this special will also play a role in Darkest Hour.
Power Rangers Unlimited: Coinless #1 is in stores this Wednesday, June 28th while Power Rangers Unlimited: Hyperforce #1 is out on Wednesday, July 19th. While the official prelude to Darkest Hour releases with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #110 on July 26th.

Thousands Rally in Berlin Against Surging Antisemitism, Express Solidarity with Israel
Posted: October 23, 2023 | Last updated: October 23, 2023
In the heart of Berlin, thousands recently gathered in a show of solidarity that resonated far beyond the city's borders. Among the throngs, the fluttering Israeli flags were not just symbols of support for a nation under attack, but an assertive stand against the resurgence of a dark specter: antisemitism.
A Disturbing Resurgence
In the wake of the recent Israel-Hamas conflict, Germany has witnessed an unsettling rise in antisemitism. Synagogues have been targeted with Molotov cocktails, Israeli flags torn down, and the Star of David, a symbol of Jewish identity and faith, maliciously painted on doors and walls. These incidents have sparked fear and concern not only among the Jewish community but also among those mindful of Germany's historical burden.

The State's Response
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and President Frank-Walter Steinmeier have risen to this challenge, standing firm against the antisemitic tide. Both leaders have resolutely condemned the recent upsurge in antisemitism, asserting that it is wholly unacceptable for Jews to live in fear in a country that once perpetrated the Holocaust. They have invoked the solemn vow of 'never again', a promise that the horrors of the past must not be repeated.
But their commitment goes beyond words. The government has bolstered security measures for Jewish institutions, increasing police protection across the country. Yet, as reassuring as these measures are, they serve as a stark reminder of an uncomfortable truth: Jewish institutions in Germany require enhanced security protection.

A Rallying Cry for Solidarity
Against this backdrop, the recent demonstration in Berlin served as a powerful counterforce. It was more than a protest; it was a declaration of unity against hatred and discrimination. People from various walks of life came together, carrying Israeli flags and posters of those held hostage by Hamas, standing up against antisemitism.
Yet, this demonstration is only a starting point. Combatting antisemitism requires ongoing, long-term efforts that extend beyond protests and increased security. It calls for education, awareness campaigns, and fostering a culture of inclusivity and respect. Only then can we hope to address the underlying causes of antisemitism and promote tolerance and understanding.
The rise in antisemitism serves as a stark reminder that the fight against hatred and discrimination is never truly over. It demands the collective effort of governments, civil society organizations, and individuals. The events in Germany underscore the importance of remaining vigilant and united, highlighting that the struggle against antisemitism is a struggle for our shared humanity.
