Slide 1/10 – Adam West passes away

While contemporary portrayals of Batman in both film and television depict the Caped Crusader as being a dark, brooding character, the definitive small-screen Batman was a distinctively lighter character. Adam West’s portrayal of the iconic hero in the classic 1960s Batman television series gave the world The Bright Knight, a campy, humorous take on Batman that in turn made West himself an icon.

However, the world of Batman grew a little darker back in June when, after a short battle with leukemia, West died at age 88.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives,” his family said in a statement when news broke of West’s passing. “He was and always will be our hero.”

West’s final performance as Batman, the animated Batman vs. Two-Face, was released in October.
