    Adam West just died aged 88.

    That's one trouble with dual identities, Robin. Dual responsibilities

    It bothers me a bit that an actor is reduced to a role. Adam West died, and batman lives on. Probably Batman did die, if I know comics at all, and came back just fine.

    And I don't care about comics or their multi-billion dollar offspring. I do miss Mad magazine, but not if I look at it again.

    I'm saying the thread title is kinda insult and mockery.

    I liked the fold-in back cover. Pretty easy to figure out before folding, but still satisfying, for a while. Pretty short while.

    For my generation Adam West is Batman.
    No mockery intended.
    Loved the series as a little boy (on B&W tv)
    and loved the humour when older.

    RIP Batman

    It was a Batman TV series reference.

    [Batman reads Miss Kitka's riddles to Robin.]

    Batman: One: "What has yellow skin and writes?"

    Robin: A ballpoint banana.

    Batman: Right! Two: "What people are always in a hurry?"

    Robin: Rushing people? Russians!

    Batman: Right again! Now, what would you say they mean?

    Robin: Banana... Russian... I've got it! Someone Russian is gonna slip on a banana peel and break their neck!

    Batman: Precisely, Robin! The only possible meaning!


    Made me chuckle 30 years or so ago, still does

    Robin: Gosh, Batman. The nobility of the almost-human porpoise.

    Batman: True, Robin. It was noble of that animal to hurl himself into the path of that final torpedo. He gave his life for ours.


    They could deadpan it better than most.

    Adam West was certainly all about the deadpan.

    His work on Family Guy was deadpan at its best. Bizarre lines delivered without breaking tone or losing the beat. He was a total pro.

    He finally received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.

    He was brilliant as Batman as the show was one of my favs as a kid. Loved the colour, the adventure, the costume and that awesome car!
