Knoxville (WVLT) -- AdventureCon 5 continued today at the Knoxville Convention Center.

The event bills itself as Tennessee's largest collectors show though it could probably claim to offer Tennessee's largest collection of movie stars, comic book heroes, and sci-fi fans under one roof.

Comic book heroes even included the star of a recent popular movie who was impressed with his support here in East Tennessee.

"It is a little revealing," said Spiderman. "It's a little strange but I like it. We've got a lot of fans here."

The event wraps up tomorrow evening.

This years celebrities included Billy Dee Williams from Star Wars, Martin Klebba from Pirates of the Caribbean, and April Stewart who provides many of the female voices on South Park.
