Aw, Justin wants to join a high school sports team! He goes for track. Carlos is giving him advice and trying to help him train and it's SO CUTE. He's not great at most of this, but considering he's only 13 going up against a bunch of 18 year olds? He's doing alright.

At the Youth Center, Justin is trying to lift weights. It's not working so well until Cassie and Carlos come help him. Justin gets down on himself for being so puny and Cassie points out he's not puny, he's just younger than the rest of the high school team. WHICH IS TRUE. Don't be so hard on yourself, Justin!

Meanwhile, Lt. Stone is having an ant problem. I hate ants. They are nearly impossible to get rid of once you get them inside. Bulk and Skull want to help get rid of the ants. That's a bad idea. Justin is working out extra hard when he gets bitten by one of the ants. A RADIOACTIVE ANT. He suddenly develops super strength, pulling the doors right off their hinges. SOMEWHERE, PETER PARKER IS CRYING.

Justin rushes to try outs and the coach is doubtful to his ability to do anything, but lets him try anyway. Justin goes for the long jump and manages to jump right over the entire length of the sand. He's really confused but keeps trying things to figure out what's going on, right down to hurling a shot put ball ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE FIELD. Carlos totally knows something is wrong. Justin is too excited about being better than the older kids to care.

Justin totally abuses his great power, being a jerkwad to show off his super strength by arm wrestling. Carlos tries to tell him all about how with great power comes great responsibility, but he totally doesn't care. He could care less about side effects. When out with his new track friends, they are confronted by piranhatrons and Justin discovers he can't morph. So he has to use his super strength instead. I'D SAY THAT'S A PRETTY BIG SIDE EFFECT, JUSTIN. His super strength is not compatible with the ranger abilities and Justin can't be both really strong and a ranger. Alpha has an antidote and Justin has to decide if he wants to keep his ant-given super powers or use his other super powers. TJ gives a pretty awesome speech about how it's not really him doing those awesome things, but when he's bigger and trains hard, he can claim his awesomeness all on his own.

Divatox has her own zord now and she has a space taxi. SPACE TAXI! She picks a zord and heads to Angel Grove and Justin totally decides being a ranger is cooler than being a radioactive affected superhuman (he should totally have joined The Avengers... just saying). He takes the antidote and they go fight. There are zords and they totally beat the crap out of Divatox.

Back at school, Justin had to leave the team as an active player. It gives him a sad, but Carlos is there to cheer him up! Best big brother ever. Then the others show up and let him talk about his sad and it's all better. Especially because then he gives advice to the team about the best way to play USING PHYSICS. WHICH MAKES HIM WAY COOLER THAN ALL THE OTHER TEAM MEMBERS, JUST SAYING.

1.5 fish. Seriously, he becomes a comic book character and makes the high school sports team better WITH PHYSICS.

THIS EPISODE IS AMAZING. Seriously, Justin on the Avengers! Or maybe with the Fantastic Four! OR OR HE COULD HOOK UP WITH MOLLY FROM THE RUNAWAYS.

As long as he doesn't end up as crazy as Hank Pym is and turn into a wife beater or something.

But seriously, kid bitten by a radioactive insect and gets super powers? FAVORITE PREMISE EVER. And I mean, I still maintain that the side effect should have been to turn him into a Man-Ant or something.

AMAZING.

This is why I have always firmly believed that Justin is awesome. Well, this and because I've always felt sorry for him because the other Rangers all turn into VERY BAD FRIENDS.

Seriously, the Rangers are REALLY bad friends. I love them, but they are bad at things.

you know...There was an Ant Man who appeared around the same time as Spider-Man (he's another of Stan's creations).
