Adam West: My First Batman

The time in the world went by to quick. Just today I found out that the first superhero I was introduced to had passed away. This superhero was Adam West. I would always remember him as being my first Batman. When I was a kid, my brother and I would always look forward to Adam West’s Batman show. It was a fun show with different villains every two episodes. Villains ranged from Mr. Freeze, the Penguin, the Joker, Catwoman, and even King Tut. Adam West played a very unique always thinking Batman. He was a comic, detective, and a crime fighter all molded into his take on the cape crusader.

Just last year, part of my ford assembly line project dealt with having students adding modifications to the 1966 Batmobile. It shows that the Adam West Batman to this very day had an impact on my life in a good way. True today we had Michael Keaton, Vale Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck as Batman but my first Batman would always be Adam West.
