A giant Bat-signal lit up the side of City Hall in Los Angeles Thursday night to honor Batman actor Adam West, who played the superhero role in the 1960s television series. He died on Friday at age 88 following a battle with leukemia.

The caped crusader helped protect the fictional Gotham City in a franchise that began as a DC Comics strip before also moving to television and film. When Gotham’s authorities needed Batman’s help, they projected a light beam with his logo into the sky. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and police chief Charlie Beck led Thursday’s tribute. Hundreds of fans thronged the ceremony, many dressed up in costumes from the television series and films.
