Michael "Mike" Brogan. Action Man. The greatest hero of Britain.
Mike Brogan was made Action Man at some point between 1994 and 2008. While working under Director Cain, he was sent based on intel from Mercy Gale to where Doctor X was mutating college students. After breaking through the roof, he was able to subdue 1500 mutants and they were able to be returned to normal. Unknown to Brogan or anybody but Gale, Doctor X was killed when a piece of rubble from Action Man's entrance fell on him. At another point, Brogan saved the President of the United States from a duplicate. In the process, he made a copy of the O.S. codex, to gain leverage over the United States.
Later, an intrepid Ian Noble broke into the Action Man Programme headquarters and Mike Brogan was sent to handle the situation, preferably by shooting the boy on sight. However, he was quite impressed by Ian's mental and physical skills, and invited him into the programme. The two became close friends.
In 2016, Ian, on his violation, went undercover in Doctor X's facility in the Thames and, upon his discovery, her agents accidentally set off her antimatter generator. Action Man was sent in to defuse what seemed to be a maniacal doomsday plot and sacrificed his life by flying the rocket containing the antimatter generator into the atmosphere, where it exploded. Ian Noble would then become the new Action Man, a position that brought in constant and unfavorable comparisons to his predecessor.
- Mike Brogan takes his name from the pseudonymous author of several Action Man books.
