Steven T. Seagle
Man of Action Entertainment is the bi-coastal writers’ collective behind comic’s largest franchise characters as well as original characters published by their Man of Action imprint at Image Comics. The four met while working on Marvel and DC most prized franchises from Superman to X-Men and realized that they were stronger together. Their original creations include Ben 10, the $4.5 billion boys’ action franchise for which they’re also executive producing the new iteration, and Generator Rex, both for Cartoon Network. Dentsu handpicked them to create/write/executive produce the all new Mega Man series that debuts on Cartoon Network next year. Man of Action launched Disney XD’s Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as EXP/writers. Man of Action also created the characters and team Big Hero 6, featured in Disney/Marvel’s Academy Award®-winning feature and the only comic book IP to win that award.
