A.T.O.M.[1] – Alpha Teens on Machines[2] (known as Action Man A.T.O.M. in some countries) is a French-American superhero animated television series produced by SIP Animation in association with Jetix Europe. The series focuses on the adventures of five teenagers in the fictional Landmark City. The eponymous Alpha Teens, which consist of Axel Manning (the main character), Catalina Leone, Crey Kingston, Zack Hawkes, and Ollie Sharker, test prototype vehicles and weapons for Lee Industries, and use these prototypes to combat criminals, particularly the nefarious and sadistic bad guy Alexander Paine.

The series debuted on August 27, 2005[citation needed] with its first season consisting of 26 episodes. It was renewed for a second season, also consisting of 26 episodes.

In countries such as France, Germany, United Kingdom,[b] Italy, Australia, and Latin America, the series was branded as Action Man: A.T.O.M., with Panini Comics publishing a tie-in comic book series.[3]
