ODESSA- Growing up in the 90's you may remember the television series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Odessa native Karan Ashley, was the yellow ranger, and on Saturday she was back in town meeting fans.

Many may know of her by her character name Aisha Campbell, the legendary yellow ranger. NewsWest 9 spoke with her and asked about her journey as Mighty Morphin Power Ranger.

"It was amazing, we got to travel the world, it was a once in a lifetime experience. I got to be on the #1 kid show in america, I got to be a superhero, I was the first female black superhero," former Yellow Ranger Karan Ashley said. 

Ashley was on Seasons 2 and 3 of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the first power rangers movie in 1995.

"Power Rangers is definitely what she's known for and I mean who doesn't love the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," Macee Gonzales said. 

"It spans generations, they're the legendary Power Rangers regardless of who comes after and stuff like that, it's great to have her," Chris Slatosch said. 

Since her time as the yellow ranger, Karan Ashley still has a big following as she continues to further her career as a co-host of the national talk radio show called "Uncensored Radio."

"I mean you can go follow her Facebook, and the other Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and you can see that their fan bases are still huge even though they haven't been on TV in 10 years," Gonzales said. 

"It's crazy! Twenty years later, we are still hot. Power Rangers have always been this thing that people loved but were afraid to admit to, and now we still have this huge following an have been able to travel all over to New York, London, to Odessa," Ashley said. 

Ashley said would like to do more appearances here in her hometown of Odessa and is excited about the new comic con that is coming to the Permian Basin next year.

"They asked me to be a part of the Permian Basin Comic Con, so if you are in town in March you have to go to the Permian Basin Comic Con. I can't make it because I'm booked in another city but I said maybe we can do something together outside of that, so we came up with this," Ashley said. 

The Permian Basin Comic Con will take place this March at the Ector County Coliseum. Tickets should go on sale next week.
