Official Site: Estate of Eando Binder

Adam Link is a fictional robot, made in the likeness of a man, who becomes self-aware, and the protagonist of several science fiction short stories written by Eando Binder (Earl and Otto Binder). The stories were originally published in Amazing Stories from 1939 to 1942.

In all, ten Adam Link stories were published. The first was "I, Robot" (not to be confused with the book by Isaac Asimov; see the article on Eando Binder).

"I, Robot" and "The Trial of Adam Link, Robot" were the basis of two episodes of The Outer Limits, one from the original series "I, Robot" in 1964, and one from the revival series "I, Robot" in 1995. Both versions featured Leonard Nimoy.

The series has been adapted for comic books twice, once for Entertaining Comics' Weird Science-Fantasy in 1955 (issues 27-29), and again for Warren Publishing's Creepy in 1965-67 (issues 2, 4, 6, 8-9, 12-13 and 15). In each case, the adaptation was scripted by Binder and drawn by Joe Orlando. In each case, the series was discontinued before it could be completed.

Adam Link has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
