The greatest thing about the Power Rangers movie is that it has a black kid, a nerd, a lesbian, an asian, a cheerleader, a quarterback, and an autistic kid, but it doesn’t have The Black Kid™, The Nerd™, The Lesbian™, The Asian Kid™, The Cheerleader™, The Quarterback™ and The Autistic Kid™.  They’ve normalized these pieces of their characters where most films exploit the stereotypes. Appropriate representation matters.
They didn’t shy away from having their characters face real teenager situations, too. Would any other superhero have one of their characters sharing nudes around the school? Probably not.
Lionsgate set a serious standard for superhero movies with this movie.
