It's morphin time. Dean Israelite's Power Rangers debuts in theaters this weekend, and we can already feel the nostalgia flowing. The film is a remarkable return to a beloved franchise, and it genuinely seems to set up some future adventures that will make any kid from the 1990s go wild. DNA from the Mighty Morphin series is plain to see from the first few frames of the film, but as fans of the Power Rangers lore already know: there's so much more to this universe than that.

Superhero franchises are known for going into ridiculous territory and culminating in some massive battles, and the Power Rangers films should be no different. With a fully fleshed out film series in mind, we have combed through the Power Rangers lore to pick out specific stories that future installments of Power Rangers need to adapt. Take a look at our list, and let us know what stories you specifically want to see adapted in the comments section below. Without further ado, let's kick this list off with a story that most of us can already see coming.

Green Ranger Power Rangers

Power Rangers: Green With Evil

At this point, there's almost no question that this is where the Power Rangers franchise is headed. The mid-credits sequence at the end of Dean Israelite's reboot perfectly sets up the introduction of Tommy Oliver, which means the "Green With Evil" storyline is just around the corner. In this version of the narrative, Rita Repulsa brainwashes Angel Grove newcomer Tommy and turns him (or her) into the new Green Ranger to kill our heroes. Eventually, the spell is broken, and Tommy joins the rest of his new friends as the sixth member of the team. Given the increased runtime of a Power Rangers movie, this would also be a perfect film in which Lord Zedd could receive a proper introduction.
