His only means of communication is through the inter-dimensional communication device that Alpha 5 built in the command center. From there he monitors Rita’s actions, directs Alpha 5 and the teens in their mission and hands out advice to whoever asks.
A powerful evil sorceress, Rita Repulsa was imprisoned by Zordon in a space dumpster for ten thousand years, along with his minions, until the dumpster landed on the moon and was opened by two human astronauts. Now free, she’s determined to take over Earth, but finds herself time and time again foiled by the Power Rangers. Rita is relentless in her quest for control of the Earth, now spending most of her time dreaming up new ways to strip the Power Rangers of their powers.
