We've lost the great Adam West, who played Batman on the iconic ABC television series from 1966-68. Mr. West helped popularize the title character and gave millions of non-comic book readers their first introduction to the Caped Crusader. In some ways he was to Batman what Sir Roger Moore was to Bond--charming, suave, and famously self-deprecating. Like Sir Roger with Bond, Mr. West was a wonderful ambassador to the Batman franchise and appeared on nearly every single Batman animated series from the '90s and '00s--his voice was unmistakable. It's sad losing two legends in such a short time.
May they both fend off bad guys with aerosol cans in the afterlife.
