Watch: Adam West Shines in Unaired Episode of 'Powerless'
Adam West passed away Friday, June 9 at the age of 88. One of the beloved actor's last roles was an appearance the now-cancelled DC Universe sitcom Powerless.
West was well known for portraying a colorful, funny, self-aware and over the top Batman. So of course he was a natural fit for Powerless, a rare post-Batman attempt at humor from the largely dark modern-day DC.
The line “Will this rag-tag band of plucky performers keep their precious positions, or will they be thrown to the wolves? Find out next week!” was clearly written for, and performed spectacularly by, West.
As Dean West, chairman of Wayne Industries, he has some unfortunate news for the staff of Wayne Security. West has made a deal with the devil, in the episode title "Win, Luthor, Draw."
Although Powerless was cancelled before the episode aired, DC Entertainment has posted the entire episode online.
Adam West, Batman to a generation of TV fans, passed away last week. One of his final roles was a fittingly comic guest role on NBC's Powerless in an episode which never made it to air. DC All Access is proud to present this episode in its entirety for a limited time as a tribute to West and his DC legacy.
