Cult Icons: the BATMAN (1966-68)


For a kid of the sixties, there is only one true BATMAN. Long before the character became a miserable, neurotic and boring leather clad nipple fetishist with an attitude problem there was the indominable Adam West with his noble sense of square jawed duty that would put Buzz Lightyear to shame. Dancing along the tightrope that seperated camp corn and grated cheeze, his version of Gothams finest was the comic colour writ large on the small screen for teeny and not so teeny tots. So you can keep your Keaton, Clooney, Kilmer and the dour bugger that's in the hallowed batsuit right now. None of them have given the character the sense of dignity and noblesse oblige that West brought to the role. He was, and still is, the real deal.
