Main Question or Discussion Point

Died Peacefully at 88

Sad to hear this. Adam west is the person I think of as Batman. It seems now that every superhero has to have some kind of an edge, that one can't have a superhero without being an anti-hero of some sort. But the only reason that works is because of the iconic pillars built by actors like this and those who brought over-exemplified self-sacrifice and noble ideals into popular culture in the first place.

He will always be the only Batman for me. All of the others that have played Batman have picked up something from the way he portrayed Batman.

Plus he was hilarious in Family Guy.

Admittedly Adam West was not my favourite Batman (that honour goes to Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy of films), but I nonetheless enjoyed West in the Batman TV show in syndication during my childhood, particularly the campy and lighthearted nature of the show.

He will be missed.
