(Newser) – The Bat-Signal will shine over Los Angeles in tribute to the late Adam West, the actor best-known for playing Batman in the campy 1960 television series, who died Friday at age 88. Mayor Eric Garcetti says the Bat-Signal will be lit at LA's City Hall at 9pm Thursday, reports the AP. In announcing the event on Twitter, Garcetti added the hashtag, #BrightKnight. Batman is often referred to as the Dark Knight, but West's children say he aspired to positivity and always saw himself as "The Bright Knight." (Read more Batman stories.)
