06/10/2017


Adam West, forever known as TV’s Batman, has died at the age of 88. A spokesperson for the family said West died of leukemia, surrounded by family.

West is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.

His career spanned six decades during which he appeared in more than 50 films and television shows, most recently as the voice of Mayor Adam West on Family Guy, and as a guest star on The Big Bang Theory. “A true American icon and beloved father and husband, he will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and millions of fans around the world,” the spokesperson said.

A statement from the family: “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.”

He was also amazing worship on Family Guy, last year I watched on Netflix a doco about him called Starring Adam West (2016) about his career, and finally getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (which I highly recommend). What a class act RIP batman Adam West: His 10 best Family Guy moments http://ew.com/tv/2017/06/...ow_twitter

Honestly Adam West is a perfect example of embracing the quirkiness and campness of his early career and evolving it in his late career through self parody and humour which really helped grow him from being typecast as Batman (which hurt him for years after Batman) it was always a joy to see him in behind the scenes video on projects he has been on (especially in voice over work) and he always has that smile on his face and always embracing the fans of all eras of his work, he was always quick with a humourous retort and always going all in. It's something many actors could stand to learn.

My favorite Batman as well. I used to love the double kick him and Burt Ward used to

execute on the bad guys. lol Adam West was also known as the "White JJ" on Good Times

for fans of the show when he made a guest appearance. lol

RIP Adam West

In Praise of Journeyman Actor; Mr. Adam West, RIP.

Notwithstanding.

Batman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. We ain't talking about Shakespeare or a Greek tragedy here... just not that deep. lol lol lol

Batman is just an out-of-touch, or straight up disturbed, rich kid who uses his wealth to nurse pathological guilt over his parent’s death. Had he been poor, he probably would’ve wound up being the kind of petty criminal Batman typically takes out.
Batman’s very existence creates a cycle of escalation- in response to his extreme vigilantism, extreme criminality is created.
Batman acts outside the law, respecting no privacy, due process, or legal rights of any kind. He uses force to try to create a world compliant with his own personal morality.

I "stole" this from another Prince fan, but I don't know their name so all credit to them whoever they are.
