Herro Team Omo,
Thomas Oliver. Ring a bell? Well I’m talking about non-other than Dr. Thomas Oliver! Still not getting a picture… sigh…
I’m talking about Tommy from the Power Rangers!
One of the things that rocked the 90s were the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! Tommy Oliver was one of them and probably the most popular one. Jason David Frank, a martial artist/ actor brought this character to life in the most hip show of the time bro; excuse my 90s dialectal. He played the mean green, evil and so fucking cool Green Ranger! He got more powers as the show went on, so guys lets talk a walk down memory lane, we shall go back in time and I shall tell the tale of one of the greatest Power Ranger that ever lived!
Jason, Billy, Triny, Kimberly and Zack were all hanging out in the made believe city of Angel Grove.
They were the Power Ranger, who protected the city they lived in from Rita a bitch… I mean witch that wanted to take over the world but ironically wanted to start at that city; strange isn’t it? Anyway she decided after failing countless times to bring out the big dog, she wanted the ranger from Zordon to fight a ranger from her. But not any teenager would count to play this role.
A new kid Tommy was participating in a martial arts tournament that Jason, the leader and all round jock of the Power Rangers, was also taking part in.
Their match ended at a draw and thats when the evil bitch decided to select Tommy as her pawn; giving him evil powers and practically same stuff as the Rangers have.
He had a cool Dragon Sheild and a Dragon Dagger that could be used as a flute to summon the great Dragon-zord!! Do you feel the chills?!
And yep you guessed it, he allow was tough enough to beat the living daylights out of the Rangers. But asusual Zordon had a plan! That involved the rangers being given new toys! I mean weapons!
The rangers stopped the Green Ranger from helping Rita take over the world and as a latent result added a new member to their squad! Things didn’t look so promising for the evil bitch.
Throughout this time, Tommy got closer to Jason as a second in command and the rest. However, he got specially close to Kimberly! grrr… If you know what I mean 😉 Boom Boom Pow! In Ranger terms… Ki-yah!!
The plot needed a twist so Rita brought up her backup plan, which was a candle designed to slowly eliminate the Green Rangers powers, the bitch made this incase something like the previous events would happen. Slowly she succeeds in draining away the Green Rangers powers and Tommy was ultimately left powerless. The Rangers decided that Tommy was no longer useful to them in the battlefield so the group of teenagers ditched him everytime they had to morph while he sat there and watched.
Angel grove was in trouble again and this time had the Ranger’s parents kidnapped, in exchange they wanted their power coins that gave them these powers. Rangers naively gave it to them but the evil forces didn’t come through on their part… oh the drama! When in trouble, who you gonna call? The Green Ranger, no not Ghost Busters… Green Ranger saves the day one last time, blah blah blah and goes away.
Thus, ended the tail of the mighty Green Ranger… Or did it?!
The Ranger got into trouble again, this time no upgrades were available and Zordon went missing. Why you might ask? Well here is why…
Because somebody had to make a comeback wearing different colours! Tommy was back and better than ever and now going to lead the new Power Rangers! New bad guys, new stories same old plot. Yup the show was still going on. He was kicking evils ass and kissing Kimberly’s once again!
Then something intamaresting happens, Tommy meets Tom!
Tommy gets cloned and has to fight that evil creation. Instead history repeats itself and Tom sees the white light and turns good. Tom is however teleported to a different time where there were more need of the Rangers then ever; the while west -_-
Much more happens to our hero in the later days such as new upgrades to the Red Zeo Ranger and then later into the Black Dino Ranger.
He even falls into the prediction where he must face his past selves.
But one cannot forget the story that made Tommy a legend for nerds all around the world, who ever had the heart to utter the words “It’s morphin time!”, go crazy over green. The green rangers tale was the most priceless one and most different.
Where is Tommy now?
Well umm he is an MMA fighter these days…
Make fun of him for being a Power Ranger now!
Stay tuned for more tales about the Power Rangers in the future. Honestly was gonna do a post about his whole tale but got a bit lazy 😛 teehee. Hey don’t look at me at that tone of voice! I have a life to live too you know next post I’ll tell you all about what I’m upto, till then Team Omo…
