Ivan Ooze is an evil sorceror made out of ooze who is the main villain from MMPR the movie, and is a member of the Fang Empire.
He ruled the earth for 6,000 until he was imprisoned in a Hyperlock Chamber by Zordon and the "Order of Meridian", who presumably were the precursors to the modern Power Rangers. He also has his own batch of enemy foot soldiers.
His hyperlock chamber unearthed by an Angel Grove construction crew, Ivan Ooze was released by Lord Zedd after 6,000 years of imprisonment. Demolishing the Command Center and fatally injuring Zordon, Ivan destroyed the Power Rangers' powers.
He traveled to the moon, and once there easily deposed both Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa, trapping them within a snowglobe. Their henchmen Goldar and Mordant swore allegiance to Ivan rather than join Rita and Zedd in captivity. Ivan then began brainwashing the citizens of Angel Grove into digging up his Ecto-Morphicons, large insect-like machines similar to the Rangers' Zords.
After the Rangers gained the Great Power, they returned to Angel Grove and battled Ivan's machines with their new Ninja Zords. Using these Zords, they were able to destroy one of the Morphicons, Scorpitron. Ivan combined with the other Morphicon, Hornitor, and took on the Rangers himself. The battle progressed into outer space, and though Ivan consistently had the upper hand, he was destroyed when the Ninja Mega Falconzord kicked him in the groin and knocked him into the path of Ryan's Comet, which happened to be passing.

Role in the series
Ivan Ooze has been resurrected by Emperor Fang to serve as the head of magic resources. he s currently unoffital, But not for long, because Scroopfan ahs just started to consider making Spyro's Adventures of MMPR from The Bride King's request. So maybe Ivan Ooze will become a member of the Fang Empire, although then again Scroopfan only wants Villain Leaguers and will have Ivan Ooze become a Villain Leaguer following his release. however, he's at least too cool and powerful to end up with Team Nefarious, cause those guys are kinda like dorks (with Ovivoious exsecption for Zurg and the Buzz lightyear villains... well, not the grubs, but the other ones.) and, maybe not nessersary a villain leager, cause the Fang Empire may well play a role with him, once Ivan ditces the leage.
