The Phoenix Suns honored their own real-life superhero, Ricky Rubio, at Superhero day on Sunday by giving the first 5,000 fans an action figure of the point guard.

His ‘ankle-breaking abilities’, ‘eagle-eye coordination’ and iconic man bun make him the top action figure in any hoops collection.

Rubio is in his first season with the Phoenix Suns and is averaging 12.7 points and 8.8 assists per game.

But it’s more than just his play at the backcourt that makes Rubio deserving on this super day.

Rubio also gives back to the community with his ‘OneMonthOneCause’ initiative where he dedicates each month to supporting a Phoenix-area nonprofit at home games.

In addition to the Rubio bobblehead, fans were also treated to a sight of some of their favorite superheroes.

The team played like superheros against the league-best Milwaukee Bucks on the court, scoring 47 points in the first quarter and going on to win 140 to 131.
