This Saturday morning lead off with some very unfortunate news. Adam West, widely known for his role as Bruce Wayne and alter ego Batman has passed away. West’s family disclosed that he had passed after a “short but brave battle against Leukemia”. The statement from his family can be seen below.

West was an American icon. So much so, that when people think of Batman, they think Adam West. He was able to appeal to both adults and children with his balance between seriousness and humor. Although West’s Batman originally aired in the 1960’s and was way before my time. I have seen many episodes and appreciate how West’s stagecraft was able to transcend generations.

Here are some of Adam West’s more memorable moments as the caped crusader.
