Open Thread: Batman Can't Save Us Now

Culture

As you may have heard by now, Adam West, TV's Batman (also the best Batman), died Friday night in Los Angeles at the age of 88 after a short battle with leukemia.


Via The Hollywood Reporter:

West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

“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,” his family said in a statement.

After struggling for years without a steady job, the good-natured actor reached a new level of fame when he accepted an offer to voice the mayor of Quahog — named Adam West; how’s that for a coincidence! — on Seth MacFarlane’s long-running Fox animated hit Family Guy.

Let us celebrate his life by doing the Batusi one more time:

And with some of our favorite Batman GIFS.

And long for the days when an eccentric rich white dude might try to save the world instead of destroying it. ALAS. Goodnight, sweet prince.
