Adam West, the titular star of TV's "Batman" in the mid-late 1960s, has died. He was 88.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of West's passing. West died after a battle with leukemia.

"Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans' lives. He was and always will be our hero," his family said in a statement, according to THR.

TheWrap reached out to West's reps, but did not immediately hear back.

Recently, West has played Quahog's mayor on 111 episodes of Seth MacFarlane's "Family Guy."
