20 Power Rangers You Totally Crushed On (And What They Look Like Now)

The Power Rangers have been kicking alien and demon tail since they first premiered in 1993. Since that time, there have been 23 seasons/incarnations centering on a team of plucky teenagers. Because we, at CBR, enjoy delving into a series and checking out the talent, we decided it was high time we gave the Rangers a power ranking. Of course, this is entirely done for scientific purposes! Granted, we don’t want to overlook these actors’ achievements, so we looked into what they have done and what they are doing now. Many of these folks have kept busy since leaving the series while some have done little more than their time as a Power Ranger.
