Character Name: Adam Park.
Fandom: Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
Nicknames: Frog Prince, Black Ranger.
PB: Johnny Yong Bosch.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual (though, I was once in a game where she wanted to ship Rocky and Adam, so I don’t mind being confronted with that, but he won’t turn a new leaf, to say, for his best friend).
Family: Adam was born in Stone Canyon, California to Melinda and Greg Park. He was the oldest of three siblings (Colton, Elinor, and Meredith) and though the first born, he was not the favored child and often felt he had to prove himself to garner his parent’s attention. It was not that they didn’t love their son just that his shyness caused for overshadowing at times. He has relatives in Korea, though they only communicate through birthday cards. His aunts, uncles, and cousins are divided between Stone Canyon and Arizona.
Romantic/friendships/other: In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers - Adam first met the Ranger teens during an attempt to save his teacher's baby alongside his friends Rocky DeSantos and Aisha Campbell. The three of them lived in the city of Stone Canyon, California and were visiting Angel Grove for the Final Round of the Team Ninja competition. To the Ranger teens surprise, the Stone Canyon trio was not there as spectators, but to compete in the final round of the tournament they won. Adam (along with Aisha and Rocky) eventually moved to Angel Grove permanently and enrolled in Angel Grove High School.
Adam's new friendship with Billy, Kimberly and Tommy would lead to his, Aisha's and Rocky's constant entanglement in Lord Zedd's schemes. In one encounter, the three Stone Canyon teens are kidnapped by Goldar and chained together inside a cave. A snake whose bite will render them evil permanently is set loose on them by Goldar. Their attempt to escape almost succeeds, but ultimately fails; it is the Morphed Kimberly, Billy and Tommy who rescue them. Billy manages to wrestle the snake away so that the teens can be freed, however, despite Kim's destruction of the snake, the injuries it caused to Billy's neck while Morphed force Billy 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, are revealed to Adam and his friends. The three teens were taken to the Command Center where the identities of Jason, Trini and Zack were revealed to them and they took an oath not to reveal the identities 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. He was also granted the power of the Metallic Armor.
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.
In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie - When Lord Zedd released the terrible Ivan Ooze from his chamber, Ivan destroyed the Command Center and Adam's Dino powers. After traveling to the distant planet of Phaedos, Adam gained the power of the Ninjetti, and the animal spirit of the Frog, along with a new Frog Ninja Zord.
In Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers - Vile then turned back time using the Orb of Doom, turning the Rangers back into children. The Rangers soon recruited the Aquitian Rangers to fight in their stead. Billy had then created a device which would restore hem to their old selves. He used the Ninja Coins as a power source, testing it on himself. This worked, but it allowed Goldar to capture the coins, and Zedd and Rita destroyed them.
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.
In Power Rangers: Zeo - When Adam's fragment of the Zeo Crystal was reunited with the four other fragments, he reverted to his normal age, and soon became the Green Zeo Ranger (Zeo Ranger IV). He gained the Zeo Zord IV (which resembled Taurus the bull). After the Trey of Triforia had revealed his identity as the Gold Ranger, he gave the Rangers the Super Zeo Gems and Super Zeo zords. Adam received the Green Super Zeo Crystal and Super Zeozord IV.
In Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie - When the evil Space Pirate Divatox threatened to raise a powerful monster named Maligore to marry her, Adam, along with the other Rangers, accepted new Turbo powers and he became the Green Turbo Ranger, gaining the Desert Thunder Turbo Zord.
In Power Rangers: Turbo - After graduating from Angel Grove High School, Adam became an acclaimed stuntman, and his character received even more focus than before. In "Passing the Torch," he chose Carlos Vallerte to take his place as the Green Turbo Ranger.
In Power Rangers in Space - Adam helped Carlos, the Black Space Ranger, reclaim his confidence as he helped him train harder. He still had his original Power Morpher from when he was the Black Power Ranger. However, though it and the Mastodon Power Coin in it were damaged, he still uses the cracked morpher to become the Black Power Ranger and help Carlos in his battle against LizWizard. 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.
In Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive - Adam appears alongside Kira Ford (Yellow Dino Ranger), Xander Bly (Green Mystic Ranger), Tori Hanson (Blue Wind Ranger), and Bridge Carson (S.P.D. Red Ranger) in a special team-up to help the Operation Overdrive Rangers against Thrax and his evil alliance. With the Opverdrive Ranger's powers disabled by the villain Thrax, the Sentinel Knight summons the five former Rangers so they can defend the Corona Aurora jewels, with Adam as their leader. He and Kira reference to Tommy Oliver as now being a doctor.
At one point, Adam mentions that he knows someone who can restore the Overdrive team's powers after their link to the Morphing Grid is severed by Thrax. This 'someone' turns out to be the newly reconnected Alpha 6. Alpha 6 is successful and the ten Rangers unite to fight evil and, of course, win.
Currently, Adam owns a Martial Arts dojo in Angel Grove and retains Alpha by his side at the dojo. It is implied that his restored powers, as well as those of the other former Rangers chosen by the Sentinel Knight, still remain intact.
A tattoo in semi-cursive Kanji, reading Honor on the inside of his left bicep, as well as a battle scar on his upper right thigh from a battle with Lord Zedd.
Adam is shy, sensitive, and deeply spiritual. His training of martial arts has made him a disciplined and efficient fighter, specializing in Shaolin Kung Fu. He proved himself a strong enough person to replace Zack as the Black Ranger, both mentally and physically: he is able to accept the responsibilities that come with being a Ranger, and enduring of the trying job.
He can play the piano and once taught soccer to a group of fifth graders. Adam is a loyal friend to the end, wiling to die for his teammates for the greater good, willing to sacrifice himself in order to protect the world and see life on Earth carry on. He considers Rocky to be his best friend, someone he has shared everything with from birthdays to secrets beyond those that the Rangers share.
He struggles with self-esteem issues from time to time, making the whole approaching strangers thing difficult (especially those of the female gander). He has only had one serious girlfriend, but it was difficult to keep the relationship going with the secret of his alternate identity hanging between them.
He has a strong and kind heart and is very respectful of his elders, including those that outrank him as a Ranger. He is fascinated by the Rangers that preceded him and his team. He is selfless and all willing, having once returned to help his successor, Carlos, as the Black Ranger, using his morpher without a Power Coin, risking his life.
Currently carries a Power Axe, once owned a Blade Blaster. Also has or had at one point a Wrist Communicator, Power Morpher with Power Coin, Metallic Armor, Black Shark Cycle, the Lion Thunderzord, the Frog Ninja Zord, and the Black Shogun Zord. He will not be coming with any Zords to the island. He will soon discover his communicator won’t work and will not be able to morph at will, but as the island wills it.
Self-esteem, friends (in that he NEEDS to be the hero and save them).
Time Zone: EST.
Adam Park belongs to Jack Olesker, Haim Saban, Shuki Levy, Saban Entertainment, Fox, Disney, etc. Johnny Yong Bosch belongs to himself, I am not really him, though he is an amazing singer (check out his fabulous band, Eyeshine) and martial artist. I roleplay for fun, not profit.
