Adam had one exceptionally redeeming quality: he didn't even look like he was taking himself - or his acting career - seriously after Batman. So he was able to lampoon his own cheesy acting, which was honestly both scripted and on purpose, for literally decades. And we ate it up.

When an actor creates a role, such as the campiest of campy Batman incarnations, that's one thing. Adam West created another, enduring and endearing character: Adam West, the former Batman actor. That's not meta, that's transcendent.

Always a cool guy, and really friendly towards fans at cons.
