Stan Lee Says Lou Ferrigno “Was Born To Be The Hulk” + Presents Lifetime Achievement Award

26

MMA H.E.A.T.’s Wade Eck was on the scene in Venice Beach, California when our friend Lou Ferrigno received the Muscle Beach Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Stan Lee. Lou was also presented two honorary certificates from the City of Los Angeles for promoting fitness and wellness. During Lou’s body building career he won the IFBB Mr. Universe title two years consecutively and later was cast in the title role as The Hulk in “The Incredible Hulk.” According to former Marvel Comics’ president and chairman, Stan Lee, Lou “was born to be The Hulk.” Lou and his daughter, Shanna Ferrigno, operate Ferrigno FIT (www.FerrignoFIT.com) a health and fitness hub for learning tips on weight lifting, fitness and nutrition.

Stan Lee

In collaboration with several artists, particularly Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Stan Lee co-created fictional characters including Spider-Man, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Black Panther and the X-Men.   In addition, Stan Lee and co-writer Larry Lieber developed the characters Ant-Man, Iron Man, and Thor. In doing so, Lee pioneered a more complex approach to writing superheroes in the 1960s, and in the 1970s challenged the standards of the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies.

Following his retirement from Marvel, Lee remained a public figurehead for the company, and frequently made cameo appearances in Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Meanwhile, he continued independent creative ventures into his 90s.

  1. Thanks for the video! Love comics! Love MMA! If content is good like this posted! who gives a F what the haters say! Love Stan hes a great guy and a smart one and funny one, ppl might think i was being rude, but he was being funny and simplistic! Hulk is my favorite marvel characte a insparition for me, i never did body building and i never will! MMA fighters are the modern super heros and super villans 😛

  2. For those of you complaining this isn't an MMA related video, nobody is forcing you to watch it. But we would like you to know Lou is a longtime friend of MMA H.E.A.T.'s and he also enjoys MMA. Back in October 2010, we even bumped into him backstage at UFC 121: Lesnar vs Velasquez (watch?v=qbR06wVfZJ0). He also just got back from Romania filming "The Scorpion King: The Lost Throne" with Royce Gracie, Roy Nelson, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Don "The Dragon" Wilson. Please show some respect.
