Batman hast died. In my mind, Adam West will always be THE Batman despite many actors assuming his identity along the way. West was 88 and died following a short battle with leukemia.
West portrayed the Caped Crusader in the classic 1960s Batman TV series, while since then he’s done quite a bit of voice over work including the voice the mayor of Quahog, named Adam West, on Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy. West also appeared in several films, including The Young Philadelphians and Robinson Crusoe on Mars.
In a statement, West’s family said, “Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans' lives. He was and always will be our hero”
