The tributes continue to roll in for “Batman” star Adam West, who died last week at 88.
On Friday, one of West’s last roles, on the NBC superhero comedy “Powerless,” was released by DC, to honor the man who portrayed the Caped Crusader in the 1960s.
In the episode, which didn’t make it to air before the comedy was canceled in May, West plays corporate bigwig Chairman West, who arrives at the Wayne Security to announce that cuts are needed in the company.
West’s appearance is brief, but graced with the kind of winking humor that his “Batman” series became known for. Asked if there was any other reason that he had come into town, West admits, “Nope, that’s it; I admit it’s a bit of a gratuitous cameo.”
In addition to his appearance in the previously unaired episode, West provided the narration for the pilot episode.
West, who was also known for voicing the mayor of Quahog on the animated series “Family Guy,” died following a brief battle with leukemia.
