Adam West’s Five Best Batman Moments

Unable to play video. Neither flash nor html5 is supported!

With the sad news of Adam West‘s passing, it seemed like a good time to remember the best moments of his most iconic role, that of the 1960’s Batman.

A list like this could easily encompass more than 5 of course, but there are a few that stand out as the best of the bunch. That said, everyone will have their favorite moments, and with so many, it is hard to believe that the show only ran for three years.

Adam West brought a palatable charm and dry wit to his voice as Batman, something that makes these scenes even better.

Without further ado, here are the top five best Adam West Batman moments, starting with one of his most iconic adversaries Catwoman, played by the ravishing Julie Newmar.

Starting with one of Batman and Robin’s most consistently entertaining foes, Julie Newmar’s Catwoman managed to put Batman in quite the scenario.

In their typical battles, Catwoman’s henchmen would do most of her bidding, with Catwoman leaping in on occasion. This time she manages to apprehend Batman in a closed off cell with a very hungry Tiger.

Yep, Batman fights a Tiger.

Trying to avoid the Tiger’s lunges proves difficult for Batman, so he reaches into his utility belt to grab some Bat claws and uses them to climb high on the walls, barely out of the Tiger’s reach.

Using his ingenuity (and Marry Poppins-like belt) he puts on a pair of special Bat-ear-plugs and uses his Bat-communicator (also located in his belt) to reverse the frequency and create a pitch that all but subdues the caged animal.

The best part? That would be when in the midst of trying to save his own life he chides Catwoman for not taking care of her pet.

Wonder Woman Annual #1 Review – A Celebration Of The DC Icon

Wonder Woman means a great many things to many people, but a few traits stand out above the rest. If you were unclear as to what those traits are, all you need to do is pick up this year’s Wonder Woman annual.

Spoilers incoming for Wonder Woman Annual #1 so you’ve been warned.

The Wonder Woman Annual comes with four stories, each one focusing on a different core trait. The first is the Rucka and Nicola Scott led “And Then There Were Three…”, which reveals the first meeting between Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. The relationship between Bruce and Clark is further explored, humorously so, but it’s Wonder Woman‘s genuineness that takes top billing.

While this isn’t crucial reading, for those who have enjoyed the Rebirth era of Diana, you’ll eat this up with a spoon and call for seconds.

The second story, “In Defense of Truth and Justice” echoes it’s namesake and is helmed by Vita Ayala and Claire Roe. Diana’s skill for finding the truth is well celebrated, but she is even better at defending it when the need arises. If you had any doubts, this story will quell them. Also evident here is the character’s ability for compassion, but that will get an…

What If Batman V Superman Had Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’s Opening?

Superhero movie fans would be hard pressed to find to tonally and stylistically different films than DC Films’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The former is self-serious, dark, and ominous, while the latter is equal parts bright colors, popular music, and jokes.

Have you ever wondered what might happen if someone combined the two? One fan did, and then provided an answer.

Chandler Balli (@CinematicEX on Twitter) imagined what Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice might be like if it borrowed the opening sequence from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. What you get is Ben Affleck’s Batman beating up thugs to the tune of Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky” accompanied by some stylish credits.

The end result really isn’t bad. Perhaps Zack Sndyer and James Gunn should find a project to collaborate on.
