Pop culture icon Adam West has died after a short battle with leukemia in Los Angeles at the age of 88. West was best known for his run at the top in the classic 1960’s series Batman.
After a long time struggling with typecasting within his career and his slightly hurt feelings about Michael Keaton taking on the iconic role of Batman in Tim Burton’s 1989 classic, West became a phenomenon and pop culture legend.
His voiceover role as Mayor Adam West on Family Guy poked fun at himself in all the right ways proving that Batman IS forever.
I will just say sorry for that horrible pun.
The point is that West will live in our hearts forever as the Caped Crusader who always understood his role and importance in the long mythology of the Batman.
Keep on dancing you beautiful bat! Thank you Adam West.
