Storyline

Alex Mann is a top competitor for the Acceleration Games, a worldwide extreme sports competition tour. During a deadly accident, he discovers his special ability called the AMP Factor, which is the ability, in extremely dangerous situations, to suddenly be able to examine his surroundings and computate mathematically the best possible action. This makes him capable of performing complex and daring stunts to save the day that are normally impossible. This discovery vastly complicates his and his support team's lives as they find themselves facing villians like Dr. X, who want to exploit Alex's power to his own end.

Pretty Good Series with Great Animation!

Action Man was a little bit like Kids WB's Max Steel but somewhat different. Alex Mann (aka Action Man) is a extreme sports competitor who uses his ability to instantly plan and perform death defying stunts to fight evil! During a deadly accident, he discovers his special ability called the AMP Factor, which is the ability, in extremely dangerous situations, to suddenly be able to examine his surroundings and computated mathematically the best possible action. This makes him capable of performing complex and daring stunts to save the day that are normally impossible. This discovery vastly complicates his and his support team's lives as they find themselves facing villains like Dr. X, who want to exploit Alex's power to his own end. This was a remake show of the 1995 Action Man cartoon created by DiC Entertainment. I can't believe that this show and Max Steel were both premiered at the same time and were both canceled at the same time! Except Max Steel still showed reruns on Cartoon Network after it was canceled and Action Man didn't air anywhere after it was canceled.
