Today marks a sad day for all bat-fans worldwide as classic TV’s Batman Adam West has died from leukemia aged 88, surrounded by his close family.
His family have released a brief statement; “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..”
Actress Julie Newmar who played Catwoman in the TV series has said today; “Adam was bright, witty and fun to work with. I will miss him in the physical world and savour him always in the world of imagination and creativity.”
The 1960’s television series of Batman has been shown worldwide ever since its inception, Adam’s rendition of the hero is well loved by many. He is best know nowadays as Mayor West in the Fox animated comedy “Family Guy” where Adam regularly voices a zany, quirky Mayor of the fictional town of Quahog.
This whole website is my tribute to Adam West who I regard as a true legend and talent, ever since a child I have admired the Batman TV series and believe that he is the REAL Batman. I admire Adam’s down to earth nature, quirkiness and random sense of humour. His legacy will no doubt live onto future generations.
