Batman star Adam West has passed away at the age of 88

Adam West's publicist confirmed Saturday the former Batman television actor died after recently contracting leukemia. He was 88. "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 to Variety.
The Hollywood Reporter said West died surrounded by his loved ones. He is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

West -- who played the title role in the campy, but beloved, live-action Batman television series in the 1960s -- attended New York Comic Con in October 2016 to promote his PG-rated cartoon adventure Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, reprising his most famous character, alongside his former cast-mates Burt Ward as Robin and Julie Newmar as Catwoman.
