Marvel characters set to invade Danville

Posted on

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Dr. Doofenshmirtz teamed up with M.O.D.O.K. you are in for a treat.  Disney is creating a crossover special, titled Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, set to air next summer. The show pairs the Phineas and Ferb gang with Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and the Hulk to stop the two evil geniuses and their allies — Red Skull, Whiplash and Venom — from taking over the world!

The Marvel heroes enter Danville after Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s latest “inator”scheme accidentally removes their powers and immobilizes them. Soon Phineas and Ferb are cooking up a scheme to help them regain their powers and defeat the Marvel Super Villains and Doofenshmirtz.  This sounds like loads of fun, but the claim by Dan Buckley, publisher & president of the print, animation and digital divisions at Marvel, that the crossover “may go beyond this one special” gives me pause. Can we expect to see a Buford/Punisher crossover next?
