Two of Disney's best franchises collided together yesterday with the DVD release of Phineas & Ferb: Mission Marvel, where everybody's favorite stepbrothers teamed up with Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor and Iron Man. This exciting DVD comes with six bonus adventures from season four of the series.

In Mission Marvel, Phineas & Ferb have a built a space station that is orbiting Earth. Dr. Doofenshmirtz is up to no good again and accidentally blasts his "Power-Drain-Inator" into space, which it ricochets off the space station and hits Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk, draining them of their superpowers. Though they are just kids, it is up to Phineas & Ferb (and a little help from Agent P) to help the superheroes regain their powers and stop the super villains from destroying the Tri-State Area.

The bonus adventures are:

Fly On The Wall - When Buford is helping Phineas and Ferb build a tire swing, he accidentally removes a part, causing a ray to shoot Candace, turning her into a fly!

Sidetracked, Parts 1 & 2 - When a train is hijacked near the US/Canadian border, Agent P must team up with his former human partner, Agent Lyla.

Primal Perry, Parts 1 & 2 - Phineas and Ferb's newest creation is called the "infinite probability generator," which gives Baljeet the ability to make as many consequence-free choices as he wants. Meanwhile, Agent P must outsmart an Australian platypus hunter.

Backyard Hodge Podge - Phineas and Ferb make the ultimate invention by using parts from past projects.

Knot My Problem - Candace is shocked when Phineas and Ferb actually tell her to get Mom's help if they get trapped in their gigantic reproduction of the Gordian Knot. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz plans on getting rid of all the all-you-can-eat buffet in the Tri-State Area.

Mind Share
- Aliens convince Phineas, Ferb and their friends to switch bodies and spend a vacation on another planet, but the aliens are criminals and the kids get stuck in an alien prison.

For six years, Phineas and Ferb has been a hit animated series on the Disney Channel with both kids and adults. It was just a matter of time before Phineas and Ferb would meet Marvel's S.H.E.I.L.D. team. Though Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man and Thor are toned down for a family audience, Mission Marvel still has plenty of comic book action to satisfy most fans. There is also plenty of humor and craziness from Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Overall, Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel is a fun watch for both kids and adults. I especially liked the bonus episodes.
