    He will always be the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman and arguably more iconic than any other person to play the character, live action or not. Shocking to learn he died and we will never get to hear his Batman again.

    I was hoping we might get some kind of revisit of his incarnation with the DC restructuring going on. There was so much more that could have been done with his Batman, and the Legends incarnation should not have been his final showing.

    Even after a night sleep, this still doesnt feel real.
    No Celebrity death hit me as hard as Kevin Conroys.

    I was introduced to his Batman voice, when i was 14 or so...and since then, Batman in the comics had a voice for me...his voice.
    His voice followed me everywhere, wherever Batman was, Kevin Conroy was there.
    But not just because of his work i was a fan, he was one of the few celebritys i enjoyed outside of their initial work.
    I loved reading or hearing interviews, even if not batman related.
    He was always so uplifting, so kind and genuine, never had a malicious bone in his body.
    He kept his own struggles to himself to focus on making others happy, the kind of soul the world needs more of.

    He isnt really gone, because every time i open a comic book, read a new adventure of Batman, his struggles, when he lifts up people and gives them Hope...it is Kevin Conroys voice that i will hear.

    RIP Kevin Conroy

    The Hype does not usually create individual threads for celebrity deaths, but considering Kevin's profound impact on all of us and the stories people are sharing, we thought it might be nice to honor him this way.

    The fact that I miss him already despite having just discovered him (and Batman in general) over the summer should tell you a lot about me.

    Damn damn damn, too many icons in lots of cultural areas has passed the last years. RIP, mr Conroy. Godspeed and thanks for your excellent work during these decades.

    Random note: If this reprise (no idea if that's even an English word lol) episode of Cheers suddenly should appear on the telly, I'd be very emotional. Crap. And crap.

    Another random but a very lighthearted note in all this dark and somber sorrow: Is this how Tara Strong actually looks? Good God and Bloody Hell, I'd no idea..

    how about that time Batman spoke lines but in his Bruce Wayne voice, hearing Batman say "what's up doc?" had me laughing.

    my copy of Mask of the Phantasm blu ray came with the other TAS era movie Sub Zero, I may watch that tonight, not as good as Mask but still good. Both came in the TAS box set all on BR and they look and sound great.
