|Adam West Dead|
The citizens of Los Angeles gathered outside of a makeshift Gotham to pay their respects to Adam West, aka Batman.
The TV superhero, Adam West died June 9 after a short battle with leukemia, but Thursday night City Hall glowed under the iconic bat-signal out of respect to the fallen hero.
The original 1966 batmobile (complete with bat fire extinguisher and batphone) was parked at the steps, along with several other bat-centric automobiles. Fans congregated around the memorabilia to pay their respects to both the actor and to the hero West represented on screen Batman, who never really seemed like they were that different after all.
