This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Action Man
Action Man is associated in some way with G.I. Joe and/or Action Force. Dr. X is connected to Cobra.

Mostly because Hasbro evidently considers all their big toylines to take place in the same universe... or metaverse... or something, but there are a few other points.

Action Force definitely takes place in the same universe as GI Joe, and started off as a series of GI Joe redecos. Before Action Force, there was Action Man, the original GI Joe redeco.

Likewise, the names Action Man and Action Force are rather similar; perhaps Action Man was an early project conducted by the British Department of Defence, and when he proved successful, they expanded the project to an entire team - a force of Action Men, if you will.

Alternatively, Action Force came first, and Action Man was the top member; he was so good, in fact, that he was selected to regularly conduct surgical strikes where sending in more than two men and a dog was logistically unfeasible.

The AMP Factor was created from the brain fluid of Sherlock Holmes.
His preserved remains were found by Dr. X and Coach Grey, who found something in his blood that they refined until they had the AMP factor.

if there ever is an action man season 3, there will be a Bettyand Veronica love triangle between Alex, Diana and Asazi
Given Alex' crushes on them both and asazi turning good in the finale of the series
  • What about Fidget? Make it a love trident... love fork? Love chicken foot...
    • It's been hinted several times that she may be in a relationship with Rikki
    • I second the previous notion simply for the term "love chicken foot".
The scar on Alex Mann's cheek...
... is from a shaving accident.
