Previously, TJ (the Red Turbo Ranger) and Zack (the original Black Ranger) started hunting down LeRoy Greene who was, for some reason, working with The Sith. They didn’t know that Greene was possessed by the Shadow King.
TJ came across a group of Black Dragon criminals lead by Jarek and fought him.
Meanwhile, Zack was taken into Shadow King’s fight club and forced to fight Raven, whom he defeated and then Bebop and Rocksteady.
TJ was a little surprised at the effort needed to put down Jarek. The Black Dragon criminal forced the Red Turbo Ranger to not hold back so much.
After it was over, TJ contacted Zack and told him what had happened. The Black Ranger reported that he had a lead on LeRoy Greene. He assured TJ that he could handle it and would call in if he needed help. TJ was interested in following up on his Black Dragon encounter.
Knowing that the others who were with Jarek had escaped; he wanted to find out what they were doing. It had to be no good.
He discovered that AIM was operating on Macross Island. They were testing some new equipment. In the Robotech environment of Macross Island, super tech was going to go unnoticed. AIM was using the Black Dragons to smuggle in the equipment.
At this point TJ knew it was a good idea to call in back up. There was no guarantee that Zack wouldn’t be needing help soon if he caught up to LeRoy and TJ himself was certain that one Power Ranger wouldn’t be enough to take down an AIM operation. No Power Ranger team had encountered AIM before and since they didn’t really share information with other super hero teams, he would be going in blind.
As Power Rangers around the world started responding to his back up request, Zack called him with an emergency SOS. He had found LeRoy Greene but was engaged in combat.
TJ couldn’t wait for any others to arrive. Even AIM would have to be put on hold. He needed to help Zack.
As intimidating at the Rhino-man and the Warthog-man were, Zack found their mental capacity lacking. Sure they were stronger than him, but the pair failed to come at him with any strategy.
The Warthog man- Bebop opened fire with his high powered rifle and Zack danced out of the bullets’ path. Bebop followed him, and Zack kept moving. He ran, twisted, flipped and rolled until he crossed in front of the Rhino man – Rocksteady.
If Rocksteady hadn’t yelled at him, Bebop would have shot his partner.
“Hey, watch it!” bellowed the Rhino man.
“That little creep!” Bebop cursed.
Rocksteady grabbed at Zack but the Black Ranger was too fast and backed away from his crushing grip. Chasing him down, Rocksteady came in with steel-denting punches.
Frustrated, he pulled his gun out and tried to cap the Power Ranger.
Zack found himself dodging two guns and was caught in a cross fire. The protective quality of his suit lit off sparks as an effect of absorbing the impacts. The bullets didn’t penetrate, but they still hurt like crazy.
But then, instead of finishing him, Bebop and Rocksteady stopped shooting and high-fived each other.
They strode toward him, obviously proud of themselves. They were unaware that Zack had recovered.
Once they were close enough, Zack tripped Bebop and jump kicked Rocksteady. It would take a lot more than that to knock them out but it was a start.
The fight was interrupted. Chaos streamed through the spectator crowd.
In their observation box, LeRoy Greene along with Tombstone, Tomax & Xamont and a few other dignitaries stood with alarm.
“What’s going on!” Tombstone demanded.
LeRoy was relatively calm. “Someone is trying to disrupt our fight club.”
The twins Tomax and Xamont had something to say to that. “Then we should move-“ Xamont began.
“-a new location.” Tomax finished the sentence. Then they completed their idea in unison.
“As we had suggested.”
Most of the dignitaries took action on the twins’ advise. They began to remove themselves from the scene. Even Tomax and Xamont themselves went for an exit.
Tombstone stayed with LeRoy.
“Them m****f****s can run if they want to! I got fighter in the ring!”
“And I sense some old friends.” LeRoy said. Tombstone didn’t understand that it was the Shadow King who ‘sensed’ something.
All of a sudden, an intruder burst into the room.
The Red Turbo Ranger pointed at the two villains.
“You guys are finished!”
LeRoy frowned at him. But Tombstone was much more vocal.
“You want a piece of me Power Ranger?” He pounded his fist into his hand. “Come get some!”
TJ accepted the challenge and dove into battle.
The Shadow King folded LeRoy’s arms to stand back and watch.
Straight up fist fight.
TJ has his Red Turbo Ranger powers
Tombstone is his classic self.
Who beats down who?
