Adam West as Batman

Adam West is widely considered the ultimate Batman actor. He portrayed him on a number of occasions, in the the 1966, original live action series, as well as in Legends of the Superheroes (1979). He's also voiced the character for animated shows, such as; The New Adventures of Batman (1977), SuperFriends: The Legendary Super Powers Show (1984) and The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians (1985).

Though most remember West's campy portrayal of Batman in the 60's, many fans have come to love his much darker take on Batman in The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians episode The Fear, in which for the first time on television, Batman's origin is shown.
