Man of Action is a group consisting of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle.

They are the creators of the Ben 10 franchise. They have also created Generator Rex, as well as written episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble.

Although they received credit for creating the franchise and wrote a few episodes of the original series, they did not run any of the first four shows, which they found frustrating. They didn't have enough of a track record in animation for Cartoon Network to trust them initially, so the shows were handed off to others. However, they have always had a financial and creative interest in the franchise.[STS 1]

Despite not actively being a part of the crew of the sequels,[AC 1][JK 1] Man of Action reviewed and contributed to all of the stories, even if they were not making day-to-day discussions on production.[DR 1]

Man of Action returned as the executive producers of the rebooted series Ben 10. They hired people, oversaw each episode, created the stories and seasonal arcs, wrote scripts and story edited the writers they hired. They work with storyboard artist to craft the visual side of stories, record the actors, review merchandising, and more.[DR 2]


Man of Action was hired by Cartoon Network to create an action cartoon. They pitched twenty different ideas in twenty minutes, each one being a minute long. The eighth pitch was chosen, which later became Ben 10.[AC 2]

Years later, they became executive producers for the reboot. After Season 1, they were story editors for every episode.
