Adam is a clone created by the DNA Project from the cells of the first clone of Jim Harper and of Dubbilex. He rose through the ranks of the Project and gained enough influence to be able to remove the original Newsboy Legion from the staff.

Following a battle between Orion and Kalibak in the facility, Adam took over control violently and developed an army of clones with electrical implants that subjected him to the control of a gigantic brain also of his creation.

His ultimate goals were the destruction of the human race and the takeover by his clones.
