An opportunity to meet Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a once-in-a-lifetime moment, but charity-superhero Yuri Williams got so much more than just a handshake when The Rock decided he wanted to do something special for him.

Soon to hit the silver screen as a superhero himself, The Rock surprised Yuri on live TV, brought him back to the Good Morning America studio to give him special tickets to see the premier of Johnson’s new movie, “Black Adam,” raise awareness for Yuri’s work, and add another suit to his costume collection.

Williams is just one man, but he’s many heroes—Deadpool, Spiderman, and The Mandalorian are all costumes he puts on to put a smile on the faces of the people in need of one, whether they be the homeless, sick children, elderly, or veterans.

GNN reported last year that his place at the at the forefront of fun has helped his charity, A Future Superhero and Friends, organize toy drives, blood drives, school supply giveaways, youth art fairs, and so much more, and they’ve done it in all fifty states.

Much of his work is taken up by visiting children with special needs, or who suffer from serious illnesses.

“Yuri’s literally like the first person to put a smile on A.J.’s face,” said mom Katrina Morgan, whose son has cleft lip.

After struggling with depression during, and after his mother’s passing from cancer in 2009, Yuri decided the best way to recover was to channel his pain into relieving others’.

“We’ve never met until now, but I’m really so proud of you brother and the work that you do because I always like to say, this kind of stuff you’re doing, that’s the best part of fame,” Dwayne told Yuri on Good Morning America.

Part of The Rock’s incredible rise to fame as Hollywood’s highest paid actor has been his infectious, larger-than-life personality, which often includes a big hug or a surprise gift for a fan or hero.

GNN reported in January that The Rock surprised a fan and Navy Veteran by turning over the keys to his own personal pickup truck.
