Batman, Life, and Memes: THE ARE ettiSToproF THE ATMAN We continue to celebrate the life of the late Adam West as we look at his role within the Batman universe. After the cancellation of the live action "Batman" series in 1968, for almost a decade Adam West wanted to separate himself from the Caped Crusader persona. It wasn't until 1977's animated television show "The New Adventures of Batman" produced by Filmation and distributed under Warner Bros. Television that both Adam West and Burt Ward return to voice Batman and Robin. While this illustrated brief but commercial success, 1992's episode from the classic "Batman: The Animated Series" titled 'The Gray Ghost' (left poster by VegetarianGoat on Deviantart, right poster by Phantom City Creative on Mondotees.com) introduced a new generation to Adam West's Batman. In this episode, it shows in a flashback a young Bruce Wayne watching his favorite television hero; "those with evil hearts beware for out of the darkness comes...'The Gray Ghost!" The episode, titled 'The Mad Bomber", when an unknown villain destroys a building using an explosive, becomes relevant to present Bruce Wayne - Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) when a similar explosion occurs in Gotham, attached a signed note from "The Mad Bomber". With a shrine to the Gray Ghost in the Batcave, Batman's fictional hero now can serve as a real life one when he seeks help from the Gray Ghost himself, Simon Trent (voiced by Adam West). A now bankrupt actor who recently sold his 'Gray Ghost' merchandise, Batman's contact with Trent was at first filled with anger and disappointment. But once the Gray Ghost realized crimes in the city were paralleled to one of his episodes at the height of his career, he finds the courage in himself and through his idol to team up and save Gotham. West's 1960s portrayal of the Caped Crusader in the television series 'Batman' turned this DC Comics character into a cultural icon. With him as Paul Dini's first choice to voice Simon Trent, 'The Gray Ghost' illustrated the dynamic duo of Kevin Conroy and Adam West, bringing together two of the most celebrated Dark Knights today.
