Now this is a BATFAN!|topnews|text|

Batman took heroic grip of Kevin Silva's imagination in 1966.
Silva turned 5 years old six days before ABC's live-action "Batman" TV series debuted on Jan. 12 that year.
A few weeks earlier, his family in Columbus, Ind., had received a 19-inch color TV for Christmas. What youngster could resist Batman's fire-flaring car and stylish bad-guy foes in that vivid format?
"It just burned a hole in the back of my head," said Silva, who's amassed nearly 1,600 pieces of Batman memorabilia during 45 years of collecting.
