Marvel Comics had the Avengers, and San Antonio had the Big Three: Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili. But Parker also hung out with superheroes off the court: larger-than-life sculptures of Superman, Hulk, Wonder Woman and other pop culture icons.

The Spurs great have amassed a collection of more than 40 sculptures, oversized versions of the expensive collectible statues often displayed on comic book store shelves. And starting June 10, the public can see them all in an exhibit called “The Heroes and Villains of Tony Parker” at the San Antonio Museum of Art.

As well as Marvel and DC superheroes, the lineup includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and characters from the Harry Potter and Star Wars universes, including Han Solo encased in carbonite – an indelible scene from the movie ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.

Tickets for the exhibition, which will be in place for about three months, will go on sale Friday.
