Holy Bat Cave... Batman's dead :(

Adam West, star of the Batman series in the 60's has died aged 88.

 

The actor passed away at the age of 88 after a short battle with leukemia and was surrounded by his wife, Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

 

To me Adam West IS Batman.

 

Loved his appearance in The Big Bang Theory.

Burt Ward played Robin. According to Wikipedia he is still active.

If it was Alan Napier he is long gone, went to the other side in the 80's aged 85.

Never knew he was the voice of Adam West in Family Guy either, but "Holy Bat c**p!" as Peter Griffin would say. Smiley

I thought everyone knew Adam West played Adam West in Family Guy, they even had James Woods being played by James Woods too... Funny

It's so obvious now, but then it was only a few weeks ago I twigged Sandie Shaw - you'd have thought her bare feet would have given me a clue but nope, missed it completely!

I wonder who will be the new mayor of Quahog?

 

No actor will ever top Adam West playing Batman.

I always loved the "atomic batteries to power turbines to speed" bit.

As said he was Batman, just like the one in the comics I was reading at the time.

Re: Holy Bat Cave... Batman's dead :(

I suppose that list depends a lot on what comics you read.

Early comics were bright and colourful. The Adam West Batman.

Now the comics are bleak and dark. So we now have the Dark Knight which to me is a completely different Batman, if Batman at all.
