In 2000, a CGI series (unrelated to the 1995 incarnation) was produced by MainframeEntertainment . It follows the adventures of Alex Mann, alias "Action Man," an extreme athlete who discovers he has something called the AMP Factor, which is an adrenaline triggered ability that lets him [[AwesomenessByAnalysis analyze any situation and mathematically determine the best course of action,]] represented by complex equations floating around in his head while time appears to stop. Alex maintains a friendly rivalry with fellow athlete Brandon Caine, who quietly resents always coming in second to Alex. The pair are approached by the mysterious [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. X]] who offers to improve upon the two with cybernetic implants. Alex refuses but Brandon accepts. Soon an altered Brandon comes after Alex and Dr. X makes it clear that he wants the secret behind Alex's ability for himself. With the help of his former high school football coach (who is far more than he seems) and the rest of Team Extreme (Alex plus his camerawoman, manager, and pilot,) the Action Man must stop Dr. X's plans for "the future of humanity" and try to save his friend while still maintaining his career as an extreme sports star.

2016 saw the launch of a new ongoing monthly comic from frequent Hasbro partner Creator/IDWPublishing; this has the premise of Action Man being a title used by many different people (a similar concept had been used in Hasbro's failed ''Unit:E'' attempt in 2011) in the service of the UK; the Free Comic Book Day issue (as a dual title with ''ComicBook/RomSpaceknight'') has the previous Action Man performing a HeroicSacrifice while stopping a plot by Dr. X, resulting in his sidekick, Ian Noble, taking up the mantle. It'll be a part of the new SharedUniverse IDW's created for their Hasbro titles, called ''[[ComicBook/Revolution2016 Revolution]]''.
