Two iconic universes collide when Marvel and Disney characters team up in "Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel," a landmark "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.
