Just for some reason, this guy Cole Evans is actually my favorite red ranger in Power Rangers all in all.
So I kind of thought that he's somewhat more interesting than Kakeru Shishi of Gaoranger (well I like both shows actually). Why? Well unlike the other rangers, his storyline of being out of civilization for too long (like Tarzan) to the point he actually and quickly learns to read and write is just something. Honestly speaking, it can't get cooler than that- just imagine- from a jungle boy (and presumably a barbarian) to learning to read and write without enrolling in school because of his connection with nature. I assume he must be a lot stronger than the rest even when out of suit, seeing he has the biggest muscles in the group.
So I kind of thought that how he joined into civilization yet never lost his out-of-suit powers keeps him going. So he was just a rookie- yeah. However he would end up leading a group of people who were raised differently than he was, something a little more interesting than Kakeru Shishi of Gaoranger being a vet. I think that his jungle boy setting makes him more appropriate to lead the Gaorangers. But amazingly unlike the jungle boy Kamen Rider Amazon, he doesn't use much unorthodox fighting tactics.
It turns out to be he also has an interesting backstory with the current Master Org (who turns out to be a human named Viktor Adler) especially when he sought to find his parents whom he later found out was murdered. Although he was angered by it and he was raised as a native, he didn't give in to revenge especially during that awesome battle he had with Master Org. However what he didn't expect that soon enough, that Viktor Adler would become a real Org which soon left him disturbed that somebody who was once a man has become an Org.
Eventually towards the finale, he displays some of his rather bad-ass moves out of suit when the Gaorangers run out of power, going shirtless for the ladies and rescuing somebody as well as doing what is probably the most dangerous move in Power Rangers history- he attempted to attack a giant Master Org (in the final form) by a vine swing, which he survived proving he may have superhuman strength out of suit. Towards the end, he went out to help animals but I'm glad that the writers didn't decide to make him a vet because otherwise, it would mean he needs to go back to school.
