Victor Jr., known as Adam, was raised by Hope and Cliff Wilson (whom he believed to be his father) on the farm in Kansas. He never knew he was the natural son of Victor Newman until this year when Hope passed away from terminal cancer. On her deathbed she told Victor Jr. the truth about his paternity with Victor Sr. present. She urged him to get to know his real father, and Victor offered him a job at Newman Enterprises. He also offered to buy Hope's farm for Victor Jr. in order to keep it in the family. Victor Jr. decided to leave his job in New York City and come work for his newfound father at Newman Enterprises.
Adam Wilson, as he is known in Genoa City, became a success at Newman Enterprises, but when Victor was presumed dead in Mexico, Adam tried to take over the company and fired Neil and Victoria in the process. Victor came back, disowned Adam for his actions and kicked him off the Ranch.
Adam was living with fiancee Heather at the GCAC, but that didn't last long once his part in forging Victor's diary came to light! Heather convicted him and he went to prison. In jail, Adam began losing his sight, so Victor sprung him to come and live at the Ranch with an ankle bracelet. Adam and Heather started seeing one another again, but it turned out he was injecting his eyes with botox to fake the blindness, was gaslighting Ashley Abbott Newman to get back at Jack and Victor, and was fake-romancing Rafe Torres to cover his tracks!
After causing Ashley to miscarry, Adam successfully blackmailed a doctor into helping him take Sharon's newborn and giving it to Ashley to cover his tracks, letting Sharon believe her child had died. Adam wound up married to Sharon, and eventually his ruse was exposed and the marriage annulled. He escaped to Brazil after confrontations with the Newmans at the Abbott cabin and the Masquerade Ball. Victor found him in Brazil, with the presumed-dead Skye Lockhart, and brought him back to GC to face his crimes.
Adam faked a mental breakdown and wound up in the same facility as Patty Williams. He convinced her to confess to a crime (killing Richard Hightower), but when she started telling people she was innocent, he helped her escape from the facility through the ducts and leave town.
Adam and Skye married and started the Newman Fund, which Victor and Jack invested in as a means of bringing Adam down. During this time, Adam got a ride with Sharon in a storm and wound up saving Faith's life. Wanting to be free of Skye, Adam took the money from the hedge fund and left town. Sharon convinced him not to steal the money and to return. Adam, wanting to be a better person, gave the money to Richard Hightower's son and returned to divorce Skye. At this point, Victor tried to frame Adam for Skye's murder, sending her to Hawaii and making it look like she'd been killed in the suite she shared with Adam.
Meanwhile, Adam and Sharon wound up in New Orleans together and made love. Nick and Michael showed up to take Adam back to Genoa City for questioning in Skye's death. Adam and Sharon became consumed with proving his innocence. Sharon went to Hawaii and found Skye alive, but she was killed when she fell into a volcano - leaving Sharon with no proof she'd found her. Jack and Phyllis later went to Hawaii and found the ring Skye had been wearing before she disappeared - enough evidence to clear Adam.
Adam and Sharon moved in together and Adam proposed again. When Sharon was arrested for killing Skye in Hawaii, Adam helped her escape. She went to New Mexico, but Adam believed she was dead and grieved his love. He kept trying to prove her innocence though, which eventually took him and Nick back to New Mexico where he had a near-miss with Sharon.
Once Sharon returned to town after being found out, Adam realized she'd been with Sam and turned on her, tossing the memory card that could clear her into the creek. Adam partnered up with Diane to try to get to Victor, and ended up being a suspect in her death when she was murdered. Adam was seen talking to someone on the phone - it was Patty Williams, who had come back to Genoa City. Adam tried to help Sharon when she got a re-trial by having photos taken of him and Heather canoodling - Heather was the prosecutor in the case. The photos were never used in court as the memory card turned up when the creek was dragged. Adam prepared to leave town, but Victor offered him a position at Newman so he could keep an eye on him. Adam accepted, but it appears Victor and Victoria may be setting him up.
