  • Are they mentioned enough to merit an article? -- Lulu (talk) 04:17, 1 January 2008 (EST)
    • Some are already linked. Yes, I think they'll be okay for articles. Lately we've been including every place that's even mentioned, so why not? I'll get some pics now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:33, 1 January 2008 (EST)

GN Adam template

A template for him seems appropriate now. It would include more people than say, Maya's, for example. -- Lulu (talk) 04:28, 1 January 2008 (EST)

  • Yeah, I'll get to work on that shortly. It'll be at Template:GN Adam. In the meantime, if anybody wants to write the articles for the wives (thank goodness they all have names!), they can add {{GN Adam}} at the bottom of the page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:32, 1 January 2008 (EST)
  • I'm in the process of creating them in reverse order, starting with Trina. If anyone wants to start at the beginning (or anywhere else, really), with be my guest. -- Lulu (talk) 04:34, 1 January 2008 (EST)
  • On and yes, the names are so much better than the Adam's tenth wife page I imagined. :] -- Lulu (talk) 04:39, 1 January 2008 (EST)
    • I, uh, think I did the Adam template thing. Sorry to barge in on your territory like that RGS, I just really wanted to give it a try. --Conspiracy Unit 05:43, 1 January 2008 (EST)
      • It's not territory at all, and you didn't do any barging. I said I'd do it and I was slow getting it done. You did a fine job. Check the history if you want to see some of the changes I made. Well done--this is a big GN for adding new information--10 new people and tons of dates and places. Not much story, but lots of new "stuff". -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 05:48, 1 January 2008 (EST)
        • For whatever reason, I liked it, none-the-less. -- Lulu (talk) 06:04, 1 January 2008 (EST)
          • Yeah, I thought it was great. Chuck Kim has a real way with [what] he does. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:25, 1 January 2008 (EST)
            • I was afraid this comic wasn't gonna happen because of the strike, so I'm so happy that this one made it. I love all the comics about Adam and Elle (all two of them). :D --NellaBishop 08:10, 1 January 2008 (EST)
              • I'm also glad to see that this comic was released. It wasn't my favorite, but it was a good one.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:21, 1 January 2008 (EST)
            • I loved this one, in an entirely fanboyish way. I think that Adam's life might be one of the most interesting stories in the Heroes universe. And this was one of those comics that, while mostly just information and not story, was a perfect set-up for Adam's return to the show, that being the mention of the latest wife... --Conspiracy Unit 12:12, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Richard Sanders

  • So Adam has two sons and once took the alias "Richard Sanders". Hmm... Hmm? 07:14, 1 January 2008 (EST)
  • Yeah, I'm wasn't too surprised about the children, but that's nice to know. However, the alias is definately interesting, as it seems to suggest to me that Adam could be Niki's grandfather or one of her great grandfathers based on that alias.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:18, 1 January 2008 (EST)
    • Blond could run in the family then... --PeterDawson 17:38, 1 January 2008 (EST)
      • I could see Hal as being Adam's grandson. Of course it could also be just a common last name, like Mendez--Piemanmoo 18:08, 1 January 2008 (EST)
        • Based on the abuse he gave his daughters, I wouldn't be surprised to learn Hal Sanders was one of Adam's sons.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:20, 1 January 2008 (EST)
          • Since Adam's sons were born between 1747 and 1777, I'd be surprised if Hal were one of them. It'd be interesting, however, if Hal were a descendant of Adam's Italian sons. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:15, 1 January 2008 (EST)
            • I admit the grandson theory does hold the most weight, but Hal could have inherited a variant of Adam's immortality gene or Hal could have been a son Adam had out of wedlock that he didn't mention in the novel.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:24, 1 January 2008 (EST)
              • quite a few same-surname-as-another characters popping up. Would not be surprised if Adam and the sanders clan were related somehow and Carlos Mendez and Isaac were related. I might even be let down a little it was not the case.--SacValleyDweller (talk) 19:41, 1 January 2008 (EST)


Just a small note that this is the 4th novel in a row for Chuck Kim. The record is with Aron Coleite at six novels in a row.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:25, 2 January 2008 (EST)

Can't believe no one has brought this up yet.

"I've outlived...even those who could bend steel with their hands or could wield the very elements." This suggests that there were more evolved humans around, and that Adam met some of them. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 00:32, 3 January 2008 (EST)

  • Bend steel and wield the very elements, eh? Elle is the obvious one, but Adam may have met Marcus through the company. =P--Riddler 00:41, 3 January 2008 (EST)
    • No, no, he's talking about outliving them. So they must have been around somewhere between 1672-1977. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 00:58, 3 January 2008 (EST)
      • Just because we haven't seen them doesn't mean they don't exist. --  Seclusion  talk / contribs 01:36, 3 January 2008 (EST)
      • Why cut off at 1977? If one of the members of the group of twelve could control the weather (which we already assume to be true), and then Adam killed them (during his recent killing spree), then he'd be fully aware to have outlived said person. Of course he's unlikely to realize that Marcus or Niki are (presumed) dead, so it's unlikely he's referring to either of them with the Bending Steel comment... --Maelwys 13:35, 3 January 2008 (EST)
  • Wasn't that first implied when Adam met Evan in 1777? --Ice Vision (talk) 18:43, 3 January 2008 (EST)

latest bride?

Is the latest bride Adam is referring to in the group of 10 brides? or is it a separate unknown person warranting their own page? Fortunefaded 20:32, January 3, 2008

  • It's being discussed here. I personally read it as someone he has yet to meet, but other's would disagree. -- Lulu (talk) 21:36, 3 January 2008 (EST)
  • The latest bride is the eleventh bride, but who she is is still unclear (if that made sense...). We don't know if she is a person Adam already knows or if she is a person Adam will meet. --Ice Vision (talk) 22:38, 3 January 2008 (EST)
  • Either way, we probably shouldn't make a page about her, as we know nothing besides "She might be Adam's significant other." -- Lulu (talk) 22:40, 3 January 2008 (EST)

A few dozen names

Takezō Kensei and Richard Sanders are both known aliases of him, but he also uses Adam Monroe. Is this truly his name? Is Richard Sanders? Is it something completely different? Therequiembellishere 03:05, 6 January 2008 (EST)

Don't really think anybody can answer that with any kind of certainty.Fyre2387 18:25, 10 January 2008 (EST)
...not yet, at least. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:35, 10 January 2008 (EST)
