Personally I grew up with the Michael Keaton version of Batman, so he's my favorite but I have enjoyed all the other performances especially Christian Bale's in 'The Dark Knight' series. 

According to YouGov data, American's favorite Batman of all time is the OG Adam West.

West played the cape crusader in the 1960's TV show. 

The data shows clear generational differences when it comes to people’s favorite Batman. Four in ten baby boomers (41%) name West as their preferred Caped Crusader; this drops to just a quarter (24%) for Generation Xers and only one in twenty (5%) millennials.

By comparison, Bale is favored by over a third (37%) of millennials who are familiar with Batman, a figure that falls to just under a quarter (23%) of people from Gen X and one in eight (12%) baby boomers.​Adam West is America's favorite Batman.
