WMG / Action Man

Go To

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.

How well does it match the trope?
