Better than Power Rangers
11 July 2002 | by swdarinSee all my reviews

This was my favorite show when I was in 3rd grade. It was better than Power Rangers because the heroes are usually younger kids that work at a comic book shop who are less taller and their costumes are based on an insect just like the kamen riders. They fight monsters that were brought to live from comic books. My favorite character was The Blue Stinger, I even had the action figure of this guy but I threw it away a long time ago. It was first aired on Fox Kids then in a few short years later, it was re-running on UPN United Paramount Pictures. It was a good show.
