For some people, Michael Keaton is the Batman of their childhood. For others, Christian Bale might be the Batman of their childhood. But to many, many of us, the Batman of our childhoods, and the one true Batman, was Adam West.
Many, many hours were spent on my laptop taking in massive amounts of perfect 60s campiness and technicolor glamour while watching reruns of the Batman TV show. And now, Adam West is charming the angels and BAM! POW!-ing any of them who mess with him.
A rep for the West family tells The Hollywood Reporter that Adam West died at age 88 at his home in Los Angeles after a short battle with leukemia… yeah sucks!
Thanks for being a part of my childhood Adam West.
Holy rest in peace, Batman!!!
