|This article is about a/an ally in Power Rangers Beast Morphers.|
Having been born some time in the 1980s, Adam Daniels was witness the many atrocities of villains who fought the various incarnations of the Power Rangers. While not stated, he was likely born in Angel Grove, as he would mention Rita Repulsa in 2019; meaning he witnessed the Evil Space Aliens, Machine Empire, Divatox and Astronema attacking Earth.
Over the years he would have a son named Devon, but would keep an active eye out for more monster attacks on Earth. He learned of how many villains sought the Rangers' powers from the Morphin Grid, which included Galvanax and even Sledge, who came from another dimension.
Mayor Daniels caught Devon on the park, still disappointed in his son on his inability to find proper jobs after leaving the car wash and why he wasn't around helping people. But when Devon is de-morphed by Blaze during the battle, he was left in shock to discover that Devon is the Red Grid Battleforce Ranger. He is unable to reach Devon before Blaze teleports the Morph-X towers away, with Devon caught in the teleport zone.
While the Rangers working on the Cybergate to extract Devon from the Cyber Dimension, Mayor Daniels storms into the basement, angry on why Commander Shaw never shared with him that his son works for Grid Battleforce as a Power Ranger, until she reveals that her own son is also a Ranger. This made him realize how much he's been out of line all the time with his son from the beginning, regardless of the secrecy. Using an untested cybergate built from the remains of Scrozzle's against the warning of Commander Shaw, he enters the Cyber Dimension to rescue Devon, and the two finally make up. Evox's plan to return to Earth in his new, powerful form is foiled and Evox seemingly destroyed, but Daniels notices a strange purple energy briefly surrounding his hand.
Following Evox's apparent defeat, Daniels has been traveling around the world, having some successes in convincing the rest of the world to create Morph X towers.
Evox proves to have survived within Daniels, and is now in total control, able to perfectly impersonate him, using his influence and authority as mayor to further his plans.
Mayor Daniels was finally separated from Evox, who was tricked by Devon into standing in blank range of the Split Emitters teleported from Grid Battleforce.
One year after the permanent defeat of Evox (or rather, a reincarnated Venjix) and Devon became Grid Battleforce commander, Mayor Daniels, Nate and Zoey promote the usage of using natural energy sources from solar energy and windmills for the world’s betterment.
As the Mayor, Adam seems to be a fairly responsible and strict father to Devon, but he truly cares for his son and wants him to be prepared for the professional world. His views on the use of Morph-X is stained by the past villainy of Rita Repulsa, Sledge, and Galvanax, who all attempted to take control of the Morphin Grid for the sake of ruling the multiverse. However that all changes when he learns of the development of a new team of Power Rangers, and his views on Devon also change upon finding out about his secret identity.
Behind the Scenes
Mayor Daniels is portrayed by Kevin Copeland.
- Mayor Daniels draws similarities with Colonel Mason Truman:
- He also has similarities with Mr. Collins:
- He's the latest father of a Ranger to discover or already know about his child's true identity. Unlike the others, he finds out near the end of the season. He's also one of those who learns the truth without becoming a Ranger himself and one of the few non-Ranger parents to immediately accept their children as Rangers.
- He was corrupted by Evox at the end of Season 1 of Beast Morphers. This made Adam similar to Anton Mercer, the adopted father of the White Ranger Trent Fernandez-Mercer who was also Mesogog’s host and like Anton, he was eventually separated from his evil host.
- Mayor Daniels shares his first name with Legendary Ranger, Adam Park.
