"Heroes of Cosplay" is a new reality series following the lives of artists who compete in cosplay competitions, showing off their imaginative creations with the hopes of advancing their businesses and brands with cosplay as their profession. The first episode focuses on the competition at 2013's Wizard World - Portland. The opening montage features a Green Ranger sighting, but later in the episode Jason David Frank (Tommy, MMPR-Dino Thunder) himself makes an appearance. Frank is one of the judges of the Wizard World convention cosplay competition, alongside one of the reality series' stars, "Ambassador of Cosplay," Yaya Han, and comic book writer Jesse Snider. Frank appears throughout the last half of the episode, as the judges interact with contestants, asking them questions about their costumes. After deliberation, Frank helps to announce the honorable mention awards, one of which is won by Becky, who mentions earlier that she's excited to see the former Power Ranger on the judging panel due to his ability to embody a character through costume, which is her specialty.
