Man of Action Entertainment, the bi-coastal creative studio started in 2000, created the megahit Ben 10 and Generator Rex for Cartoon Network. Man of Action, a writers collective, served as co-executive producer and writer for Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man and is currently an executive producer/writer for Marvel's Avengers Assemble on Disney XD. Man of Action Entertainment consists of creators Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle. Disney/Marvel's Academy Award®-winning feature Big Hero 6 utilized the characters and team created by Man of Action as credited in the main titles. The film marked the first time Disney turned Marvel comic book characters into an animated film and is also the first film based on a comic book I.P. to win an Academy Award®.
The quartet collectively worked on the largest franchise characters in comics from Superman to X-Men before refocusing on creating their own original worlds/characters for their comic books and graphic novels published through their Man of Action imprint at Image Comics. In comics, Casey is known for his Eisner Award-nominated cosmic superhero epic, Gødland. His critically acclaimed run on the series Wildcats and Automatic Kafka landed on numerous “best of the decade” lists. His genre-busting cult-favorites Officer Downe and Butcher Baker The Righteous Maker helped propel him onto MTV.com’s list of the 10 best writers of 2011. In 2013, Casey launched new titles on the Man of Action imprint at Image Comics: Sex, a current critically-acclaimed series, originally previewed in Playboy, and his series The Bounce, now available as a graphic novel. Valhalla Mad debuted in May, 2015 from the man Comics Alliance described as "the most dangerous man in comics." In 2013, Casey created a one-shot comic, Modern Romance, for the prestigious 60th Anniversary issue of Playboy. Officer Downe is currently in post-production as a feature film with Casey as screenwriter/producer. Man of Action Entertainment is also producing the feature film I Kill Giants.
