Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger (a.k.a Jason Lee Scott) is a fictional major character in the Power Rangers franchise, played by actor Austin St. John. Jason is best remembered as the original Red Ranger from the first entry of the franchise, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, as well as the leader of the original team of Power Rangers. He later becomes the second Gold Ranger in Power Rangers Zeo.
According to a contest held by ABC Family in 2004, Jason was voted as the #1 Red Ranger of all time. Out of all Red Rangers, he has defeated more enemies by himself than any other Ranger, and is the only Ranger to beat Tommy Oliver in a fight. A subsequent contest on Toon Disney in 2007 also voted him as the most popular Red Ranger. As stated at the first Power Morphicon, Jason still holds this title.
The Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger made his debut in the 2014 parade, alongside Thomas The Tank Engine, Paddington, Skylanders' Eruptor, Pikachu & the Pillsbury Doughboy. He still appears in the parade as of 2017.
