Power Rangers Megaforce introduces a plot line that is currently captivating
fans across the U.S. The new series, which debuted in the U.S. on Saturday,
Feb. 2, features Gosei, a supernatural guardian who for centuries has
protected the earth with his robotic aide, Tensou. But when the evil Warstar
aliens begin their massive invasion, Gosei calls upon five teenagers with
talent and attitude to form the ultimate team...the Power Rangers Megaforce!

When the teens morph into Power Rangers, they gain superhuman strength,
agility, and mastery over martial arts. With the aid of special Power Cards,
the teens are able to control the earth’s elements to use in their defense,
from crushing rock slides to powerful floods. The Power Cards also give them
access to amazing combat moves, hi-tech weapons, massive Zord vehicles and the
ability to combine these Zords into gigantic Megazord robots to help them
battle their enemies. But defending the earth from the invading Warstar aliens
is just the beginning of their heroic journey to save the world.

The all new Megaforce Rangers include Troy (Andrew Gray), the Red Ranger who
is the new kid in town that loves martial arts; Noah (John Mark Loudermilk),
the Blue Ranger who has a thirst for knowledge and a love for science; Gia
(Ciara Hanna), the Yellow Ranger who is the prettiest, most successful yet
toughest girl at school; Emma (Christina Masterson), the Pink Ranger who is a
compassionate and charitable teen and Jake (Azim Rizk), the Black Ranger who
is a fearless, fun-loving teen with a passion for soccer.
