Adam Collins, known chiefly as just Adam, was an antagonist character featured in the 1968 season of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. He was played by actor Robert Rodan and was introduced in episode 485. Adam made seventy-seven appearances in the series in total.
Adam was a being put together from parts of dead bodies and given life through a series of scientific processes conducted by a visionary scientist named Doctor Eric Lang. Adam's existance was intimately tied to the curse that made Barnabas Collins a vampire. Although Barnabas was once again a human, were Adam to die, Barnabas would become a vampire yet again. Adam possessed the intellect and temperament of a small child. Although pleasing him was a relatively simple task, earning his rage was something to be feared. There were several people in Collinsport who attempted to befriend Adam, but there were also those who sought to manipulate him for their own agenda, like warlock Nicholas Blair.
Notes & Trivia Edit
