Photos: 1960s Batman star Adam West dies aged 88

Actor Adam West who portrayed Batman in the classic 1960s television series, died Friday night in Los Angeles.
Though he was initially upset at being typecast after Batman went off air, he later admitted 'Overall, I'm delighted because my character became iconic and has opened a lot of doors in other ways, too.'
The actor passed away at the age of 88 after a short battle with leukemia and was surrounded by his wife, Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
After the ABC show died out, West struggled with being typecast and had a hard time finding consistent work until he got a job on the cartoon Family Guy in 2000.
'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, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
He is survived by his wife, Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He is pictured in May
