    I was really surprised watching the “Batgirl Equal Pay” PSA when I realized that it was not Adam West under the cowl. Until Bats spoke I thought it was. Maybe a super hero mask really can work as a disguise. Going by the voice was that Dick Gautier (not sure of the spelling) wearing the mask? Thanks.
