We were first introduced to Batman 52 years ago today. It was on this date in 1966 that Adam West rolled out in the Batmobile and we were introduced to a new level of coolness. I just loved coming home from school and watching Batman. He was and still is my favorite superhero.

We know Adam West as Batman from the TV show but Batman also has been a monster star on the big screen. It all started with Michael Keaton and then we have had George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Christian Bale and now Ben Affleck in donning the cape. Who is best Batman ever? I still go with Adam West. He is Batman to me. Who is your favorite caped crusader?

Here is a clip of the very first Batman episode.
