Earlier this week saw the passing of Adam West, the actor who played Batman — as well as Batman’s alter-ego, the billionaire Bruce Wayne — in the original TV series.
The show ran just as the sun was setting on the Ivy heyday, but that didn’t stop Wayne from adopting fine outfits such as this.
“Batman” was my first encounter with men in tights who save the world from bad guys— in other words, superheroes. I still remember being four years old and bouncing off the walls when the show came on. The theme music would get me so excited I’d put on my cape and run around the living room doing flying punches into the furniture.
Farewell to another icon from pop culture history. — CC
