Adam West, the gray-stockinged star of the 1960s Batman TV show, has died at the age of 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. West died peacefully in his home Friday night after a battle with leukemia, and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

May He Rest In Peace.

He may not have been the "best" Dark Knight, but was certainly the most campy and fun one, and one who remains the cowled face of Bruce Wayne for some to this day. Rest in peace, sir.

The hits keep coming.

Had a Batman cape and loved Adam West as a little kid. Was cool to see him connect with the next generation on Family Guy.

R.I.P., Mr. West.
