The closest thing to a bodybuilder in comic books was The Hulk.

It was sad news to hear of the passing of Stan Lee earlier today. While he is most obviously related to the superhero and comic book world, he has a connection to bodybuilding through the inspiration his creations gave to thousands of future competitors in the bodybuilding industry.

Content partner Williams Fitness has put together this video compilation of Stan Lee explaining how he created The Incredible Hulk – one of the most muscular superheroes ever put to ink and paper. He was no doubt a major influence to many boys who became bodybuilders. Lou Ferrigno even played him in the famous early TV show. Check out the full video above!
