Personality: Adam is shy, sensitive, and deeply spiritual. His training of martial arts has made him a disciplined and efficient fighter; his specialization is in Shaolin Kung Fu. He can play the piano, and even once taught soccer.
Adam is a loyal friend to the end. He struggles with self-esteem issues from time to time, but has a strong and kind heart. He is also very respectful towards others, regardless of species.
Adam's new friendship with Billy, Kimberly, and Tommy would lead to a perennial entanglement in Lord Zedd's schemes. In one encounter, the three Stone Canyon teens were kidnapped by Goldar and chained together inside a cave. A snake whose bite would render them evil permanently was set loose on them by Goldar. Their attempt to escape almost succeeded, but ultimately failed; it was the Morphed Kimberly, Billy, and Tommy who rescued them.
Billy managed to wrestle the snake away so that the teens could be freed, however, despite Kim's destruction of the snake, the injuries it caused to Billy's neck while Morphed forced the Blue Ranger to remove his helmet to prevent suffocation. Though able to breathe again, Billy's identity as a Power Ranger, along with Kim and Tommy's, were thus revealed to Adam and his friends. The three teens were taken to the Command Center where the identities of Jason, Trini, and Zack were also made known, and they took an oath not to share this secret of the Rangers.
Adam was selected to take Zack's place as the Black Power Ranger when he left to attend the World Peace Conference as an ambassador in Switzerland. During this time, he was targeted by Scorpina, who disguised herself as a girl named Sabrina in order to manipulate the shy teen into alienating his friends before facing an ambush alone, perpetrated by the Scorpion Warrior. Even though Aisha didn't trust Sabrina, she attempted to get along with her for Adam's sake. This led to her being able to interfere when Scorpina lured Adam on a hike to a remote part of the park. Though the encounter left Adam's confidence in himself weakened, he would soon recover when he gained the attention of a girl Aisha had been trying to hook him up with.
Later, Adam's confidence was tested again. A student in one of his martial arts classes was picked on and Adam was reminded of his childhood when he notes the similarity between his student and himself. After some private practice with the student, Goldar chooses the time to use the Mirror of Regret to force Adam to watch the memories of when others picked on him. Adam's resolve wavers, but he remembers that he isn't as weak anymore and forces Goldar to retreat.
Later, Adam gained new ninja powers of the Frog, becoming the Black Ninja Ranger. He also gained the ability to pilot the Frog Ninjazord, and later, the Black Shogunzord. The power of the Metallic Armor was additionally obtained.
When Master Vile (Rita Repulsa's father) came to Earth to retrieve the Zeo crystal, the Rangers managed to retrieve it first. To ensure that Master Vile couldn't get it again, the Rangers split the Zeo Crystal into five sub-crystals and sent them to different points in history.
Adam had to recover the Green Zeo Sub-Crystal. He was transported to the past and to Korea, near where his grandmother was born. He met Kai-Ogi, a local sage, and found the Sub-Crystal behind a waterfall.
Due to the lack of a connection to the Morphing Grid, the Black Ranger powers quickly faded away, though, and left Adam incredibly weak (very nearly killing him), but he survived and decided not to risk morphing again.
At one point, Adam mentioned that he knew someone who could restore the Overdrive team's powers after their link to the Morphing Grid was severed by Thrax. This 'someone' turned out to be the newly reconnected Alpha 6. Alpha 6 was successful and the ten Rangers united to fight evil. They were, of course, triumphant.
Currently, Adam owns a Martial Arts dojo in Angel Grove and retains Alpha by his side. It is implied that his restored powers, as well as those of the other former Rangers chosen by the Sentinel Knight, remain intact.
Adam twice used Operation Overdrive weaponry in battle. In a fight against Flurious, Adam arrived on the HoverTek Cycle. In the final battle, Adam took on Thrax solo and used the Defender Vest for protection (which was overpowered by the villain).
The second usage was of the Flash Point Megazord against Vulturus. His preference lies within the Power Axe, though that might be due to the absence of a Blade Blaster on his person (despite the presence of a holster on his belt).
Disclaimer: Adam Park belongs to Jack Olesker, Haim Saban, Shuki Levy, Saban Entertainment, Fox, Disney, Johnny Yong Bosch, etc. Johnny Bosch belongs to himself, I am not really him, though he is an amazing singer (check out his band Eyeshine) and martial artist. he is in no way affiliated with this journal, nor myself. I roleplay for fun, not profit.
