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 Queens first thoughts about Hunt
Adam Hunt is the corrupt CEO of Hunt Multinational and a minor antagonist in the first season of Arrow.
He was portrayed by Brian Markinson.
At the beginning of season 1, Adam is under investigation for fraud, having taking millions of money from the poor. Laurel Lance is advised to not go against Adam because he is far out of her league, being able to hire an army of lawyers. However, despite this, she is determined to bring Adam down. Oliver Queen remarks that his crimes are worse than just fraud, but that Adam had successfully bribed or killed anyone who tried to get in his way.
While Adam is walking to his limo with several of his security guards, he tells one of them to remind Grell that he put him on the bench and that he could as easily take him off, making him a cautionary tale. Adam also expresses his growing concern about Laurel and that he was assured that she wouldn't be a problem. While approaching his car, one of his men gets shot with an arrow. Adam's security gets him into his car, where he can only watch his bodyguards fall by arrows. He then gets thrown out of his car by Arrow. Lying on the ground, he asks his attacker what he wants.
Adam is told by Arrow to transfer 40 million dollars into a Starling City bank account untill 10pm the next day, else Arrow will take the money in a way Adam won't like. When Arrow leaves the garage, Adam (arrogantly) threatens that he will kill him when he sees him again; to which Arrow responds by shooting an arrow close to Adam's head; as Arrow was proving a point that he is in no position to make threats and Adam displays (genuine) fear of the archer vigilante.
The next day, Adam recieves two police officers in his bureau. He tells them about the assailant and that he put two of his men into hospital. The officer mocks Adam by stating they will immediately start searching for "Robin Hood". Adam tells them that Arrow said that he will return at 10 pm and that the officers should be there first and that they should work together with Adam's own security.
Oliver Queen celebrates his homecoming party in a building next to Adam's office building. At 10pm he checks if Adam has transfered the money. This isn't the case, so Oliver fulfils his threat. He enters Adam's building where his men have armed themselves and wait for any intruder to show himself. Arrow enters the building and knocks out or kills the guards. In the resulting chaos, Adam flees.
The next day, Adam finds out that by unknown means, he lost 40 million dollars and is enraged. Oliver who had a USB device attached to one of his arrows, uses the money to pay back all the people Adam wronged. After that is done, Arrow crosses Adam out from his list.
A few weeks later, Adam is approached by someone with bow and arrow late at night. Believing that his opponent is Arrow, Adam asks if he has come back to take from him again. He then gets shot in the chest by three arrows. Though it seems that Adam was killed by Arrow, officer Lance quickly deduces that the murderer is a copycat. The real murderer is Malcolm Merlyn.
