Red Ranger (Jason Origins)
Jason Lee Scott is the first Red Power Ranger from Earth shown in the season. He draws power from the Tyrannosaurus Power Coin. He was a karate student with exceptional skill when Zordon summoned him and the four other original rangers to defend the planet against Rita Repulsa and her henchmen. As the Red Power Ranger, Jason controlled the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord and later the Red Dragon Thunderzord. He also had temporary possession of the Dragonzord, along with the Dragon Power Coin, allowing him to utilize the Green Ranger’s Dragon Shield and Dragon Dagger in battle.
He also carried the standard Blade Blaster, a laser pistol that could change into a short blade, and the Power Sword, the most powerful weapon this group of Rangers used. The Power Sword also formed the top of the Power Blaster, a powerful energy cannon formed through the combination of the core five Rangers’ weapons. Jason served as leader of the group up to the halfway point of Season 2 when Tommy Oliver, formerly the Green Ranger, was named leader after being given the powers of the White Ranger by Zordon, leaving Jason as second-in-command. When a special peace conference was announced in Switzerland, Jason chose to give up his power in order to attend. Jason would return in Power Rangers: Zeo as the replacement for Trey of Triforia’s Gold Ranger Power, in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, where he was captured by the space pirate Divatox, and in Power Rangers: Wild Force to team up with 9 other Red Rangers who served after him.
