‘Power Rangers’ Star Dead at 49

For decades, young kids around the country watched the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers fight evil and save the day. However, the Power Rangers weren’t your average superheroes — they were a group of teenagers who used their powers to morph into their superhero personas. So, they weren’t able to just save the world, they also had to deal with everyday teenage problems.

The Power Rangers were a group of six teenagers — Tommy Oliver (the Green Ranger), Kimberly Hart (the Pink Ranger), Zack Taylor (the Black Ranger), Billy Cranston (the Blue Ranger), Trini Kwan (the Yellow Ranger), and Jason Lee Scott (the Red Ranger).

Sadly, we are now learning that one of the actors who were essential to the Power Rangers has died. Actor Jason David Frank, who played Tommy Oliver, AKA The Green Ranger, has died at the young age of 49.
