"Best Ever Batman" ever Passes On

27/11/2022

Tributes from such stars as George Takei, Mark Hamill and Lynda Carter have been paid to Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, who has passed on to the realm of our gay ancestors at the age of sixty six after a battle with cancer.  Mr Conroy played Batman and Bruce Wayne in various multimedia formats including video games, comic book animations and audio series.  He had a wide repertoire to his name, and notable roles include playing a recurring gay lawyer in Dynasty during the middle eighties.  He performed in the play “Eastern Standard” in this period too – a theatre piece centred around a closeted gay TV producer who is suffering from an AIDS related illness.  Mr Conroy formally came out in 2016 and contributed a story to the DC Comics Pride special two years ago.  He is survived by his husband, Vaughn C Williams.  In its obituary, NPR Radio in the States reported that Conroy was the best incarnation of Batman ever.
