    Adam Hunt (Earth-1: Pre-Crisis)

    Adam Hunt - his crimes go deeper than fraud and theft, but he's been able to bully, bribe, or kill anyone who's gotten into his way. He hasn't met me yet.
    Oliver Queen about Adam Hunt[src]

    Adam Hunt (died December 9, 2012) was a corrupt land baron and the CEO of Hunt Multinational. He was killed by the Dark Archer when he was tying up loose ends for the Undertaking.

    Biography[edit source]

    Illegal Business Dealings[edit source]

    At some point, Adam Hunt became a corrupt land baron and the CEO of Hunt Multinational. He used this position to commit several crimes which included swindling hundreds of people out of their homes and life savings.

    His actions later came to the attention of the City Necessary Resources Initiative who filled a class-action lawsuit against him in late 2012 which was headed by Laurel Lance. Adam then tried to get the charged dropped by ensuring that Judge Grell was presiding over the trial as he had donated large amounts of money to Grell's re-election campaign.[1]

    Encounter with The Hood[edit source]

    While walking to his limousine, Adam ordered one of his security guards to warn Grell that he would be turned into a "a cautionary tale" if he didn't take care of the allegations against him and to fix the situation with Laurel Lance. After the security guard left, Adam was attacked by a vigilante who shot one of the guards. The other guard then rushed Adam into the limousine before also being shot. Adam was then pulled through the window out of the car, with the vigilante then demanding that he transfer $40 million into Starling Citizens Bank account 1141 by 10PM tomorrow night, or he would take it himself. He then began to walk away, at which point Adam threatened to kill him if he ever saw him again. In response, the vigilante shot an arrow through the limousine's window before vanishing out of sight.

    The next morning, Adam called the Starling City Police Department to his office where he reported what happened to detectives Quentin Lance and Lucas Hilton. The pair were skeptical of this report which annoyed Adam, with him telling them that the vigilante had put two of his men in the hospital and that he would be back at 10PM, before demanding that the detectives arrive beforehand to co-ordinate a strategy with his new head of security, Drakon.

    While preparing for the coming attack, Adam noticed a party across the street which Drakon explained was a welcome home party for Oliver Queen who had recently been rescued from an island.

    Once the deadline had passed, Drakon assured him that no one could enter the building. The vigilante then entered the building and made his way to the office where Adam watched as several of his guards were killed. The vigilante then confronted Adam about not fulfilling his demands and shot a router arrow behind him before being interrupted by Drakon who fought the vigilante long enough for Adam to flee and alert the police.

    The next day, Adam discovered that the $40 million had vanished from his company's bank account and was furious when someone on the phone told him it was untracable. After hanging up, Adam wondered how the vigilante did it while apparently still not noticing the arrow behind him.[1]

    Death[edit source]

    In December 2012, Adam was calling people in an attempt to restart his business when the Dark Archer broke into his home. Adam mistook him for The Hood and asked if he had "come back for another pound of flesh" when he was suddenly shot to death with three arrows to the chest. His daughter found his body the next day.[2]
