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.

Extreme animation. Extreme fun.
21 June 2001 | by (Decatur, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Not only does Action Man provide great tv. The show effectively recreates the legend of a classic hero. I find so fascinating how the show integrates the characters and sets of the toy line, but in a very subtle way, by mildly interweaving these items in a creative manner into the story. Action Man is fun, and for those who want to compare this series to Max Steel, here's the difference: Action Man's animation is more colorful and fluid, while Max Steel's animation is less fluid, but the characters on Max Steel are drawn with more lifelike textures. I really hope production of Action Man continues, as this is one of the best of the new cartoons to debut since Batman: The Animated Series.
