Who would have known that when Phineas and Ferb debuted in 2008 on the Disney Channel that it would be such a big hit? Not only has it become a hit series for the network, but now they are stepping things up and crossing over with the Marvel Universe with an all-new DVD Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel.
In Mission Marvel, Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s latest "-inator" scheme accidentally removes the powers of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk, the heroes enter the world of Danville and team up with Phineas and Ferb to relocate their powers, defeat the villains including Red Skull, MODOK, Whiplash and Venom - who have also shown up to steal Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining technology. This is one of those crossovers that just should not work as the two properties just do not fit together, but surprisingly it works and really well. They made sure to keep both sides intact while still keeping it light hearted and funny with the tone of the Phineas and Ferb series. The story actually makes a lot of sense and they poke fun at not only the Marvel characters, but also the fact that the character designs from Phineas and Ferb are strange looking. The animation is great as always and while it’s no surprise which heroes they went with it is the awesome choice of villains that made it that much more entertaining. Not surprising they worked Phineas and Ferb as well as Perry in on the action playing up the superhero tone to create one of the most fun crossovers in some time. Thankfully you do not have to know anything about the show or the characters to watch it but obviously it makes it that much better if you do.
No matter which series you are a fan of, this is one of those specials that is sure to entertain everyone. This special DVD release not only includes the awesome Mission Marvel special, but also a select group of bonus episodes that just adds to the fun. In addition each disc will include a collectible comic book and exclusive randomly packed Marvel poster, with three possible posters.
