Phineas and Ferb is a pretty popular show, but who would have thought that they’d end up meeting Marvel’s biggest heroes!? This would be considered an Avengers crossover, but with the inclusion of Spiderman, (Who is a part time Avenger, but felt like a loner in this one) I’d just call it a Phineas and Ferb and Marvel crossover. How epic was it?
Well the plot is that Dr Doofenshmirtz has developed a new weapon that will rid you of your powers. It’s full proof and not for the faint of heart. Dr Doofenshmirtz uses the device, but things get a little dicey when it misses its target and hits the Superheroes! The Heroes had been defeating the villain organization led by Red Skull, but this brought the battle so a sudden halt. Now the heroes must regain their powers and save the day! Meanwhile Agent P, has to uncover the villain’s true plans and save the world.
Since this is a comedy, everyone is nicely out of character. Spiderman’s portrayal was pretty good since he was basically toying with everyone the whole time. The Hulk didn’t seem so smart, but at least he tried. Thor forgot how to fly without his hammer which made me take a step back. Ironman still got his share of lines in, but it’s too bad that the armor short circuited. Phineas and Ferb tried to be pretty smart, but you can tell that they’re just trying to impress the Marvel Heroes. Agent P was the truly hardcore character and he always has a solution to every problem. He’s definitely not a fighter who should be taken lightly. The villains…are there. They definitely know when it’s time to call it quits!
The special is pretty short, but also fun. The action scenes were decently good considering what the special was and the action was fast paced. The Phineas and Ferb characters could be pretty hard to watch at times, but the Superheroes were epic. The heroes also had a good rock theme going during their fight. Phineas may have overreacted a few times considering that he wasn’t much help in the fights, but in the end, Agent P showed the world why he’s the agent. I’d recommend watching the special, but watch out for the songs. If you want a true superhero adventure, then check out the Static Shock meets Batman episode.
