Long ago, the ancient wizard Zordon did battle with the evil witch Rita Repulsa. He eventually managed to defeat her in a game using five magic coins. As punishment for her loss, she was sealed in a canister on Planet Nemesis, a planet that travels close to Earth every 10,000 years. However, before being sealed away, Rita trapped Zordon in a time warp.
Millennia later, Rita and her minions escaped their prison and set out to conquer Earth. Zordon, desperate to stop her, had his assistant Alpha 5 recruit five "teenagers with attitude" (Jason Lee Scott, Zack Taylor, Billy Cranston, Trini Kwan, & Kimberly Ann Hart) to counter her threat. They were granted the powers of the dinosaurs, and became the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
