Two iconic universes collide when Marvel and Disney characters team up in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, a special Phineas and Ferb episode in which Marvel Super Heroes and the popular animated duo, Phineas and Ferb, defeat Marvel Super Villains and Dr. Doofenshmirtz, in an epic battle of good versus evil.

The episode finds Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk standing powerless after being struck by Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining “inator.” Once the Marvel Super Villains – Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. – find out that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is responsible for robbing the Super Heroes of their powers, they seek him out and together create mayhem in Danville.
