    Batman Costume From TV Series. Batman creator Bob Kane once noted that the television series saved the comic series from cancellation when the show revived the character's popularity. Despite this, most comic fans despise the show for reducing the Caped Crusader -- and comic heroes in general -- to campy, slapstick entertainment. However, soon after the show was canceled, the Batman comic series took on a darker, more serious tone that was reminiscent of the original comics, a reaction to the TV show's comedic nature, and the Dark Knight returned. Featured in this lot is one of the Batman costumes owned and worn by Adam West. Included are a blue cape, cowl, gloves, trunks, gray unitard and leggings, and the ever-important yellow utility belt (Batarangs not included). Also included are a pair of Adam West's own leather boots. All items are in great condition, especially considering age and likely regular use. This costume was last sold by American Memorabilia Auction in 2001. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Adam West.
