"It's more than just a game."


A Disney live-action adventure series, produced by Bruce Kalish from Power Rangers, about typical teen Charlie Landers, whose skills at the online game Hero Rising bring him to the attention of reclusive billionaire T. Abner Hall. Hall offers Charlie the chance to save the world from Real Life bad guys--specifically, the Omega Defiance, the same evil conspiracy featured in Hero Rising. After an initial Refusal of the Call, Charlie accepts and is soon fighting the same kind of battles that he'd previously experienced only in the game.

According to The Other Wiki, the show was not renewed for a third season, the official reason being that Disney XD wanted to focus on comedy live-action shows. The series lasted from February, 2009 to July, 2010. A total of 35 episodes were released in its two seasons.

Tropes used in Aaron Stone include:
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Jason.
  • Artificial Human: STAN.
  • Backstory: "My Stakeout with S.T.A.N." is chock full of it.
  • Big Bad: Dr. Necros, the Omega Defiance member who appears the most times.
    • Season Two has him Eviler Than Thou'd right out of that position by Damaged, alongside the rest of the Defiance...the worst part is we don't see what kills them. Because of Never Say "Die", a horrifying scene became arguably EVEN WORSE.
    • At the end of "Mutant Rain," Elias Powers looked like he was on his way to becoming the next Big Bad after stepping into the Uria Chamber, but then the show got canceled.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Charlie may have video game skills and be athletic, but he'd be pretty useless without his Powered Armor and gadgets.
  • Darker and Edgier: Season 2. Oh so much Season 2. The first episode deals with one of the season 1 bad guys getting killed by an Eldritch Abomination with telekinesis! Sure it's off-screen and its costume looks fake and silly, but still!
  • Evil Counterpart: Grudge in "Mutant Rain."
