‘Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel’

Remember how comic books fans were all furrowed brows and sputtering talk back in ’09 when Disney absorbed Marvel? How the fans were worried that Disney would dilute/sully/demean/cheapen/totally screw the Marvel brand?

Remember how relieved fans were when the Marvel feature films stayed as fresh and exciting and authentic as the first IRON MAN had been after the new regime was in place?

How they/you/we heaved big sighs of relief and went back to cursing more important things, like the economy, Microsoft, and health care in the U.S.A.?

Well, it just might be time to start worrying again:

Or, in the words of MTV Geek’s Charles Webb:

Worlds collide as Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh’s kid characters cross over with the Marvel U…

Phineas and Ferb co-creator Marsh is providing redesigns to the Marvel Heroes and villains so that they’ll blend into Danville. No word on if the Avengers and Ultimate Spider-Man voice cast will be reprising their roles for the special event.

Now that Disney is embracing the inevitable collision between their stable of cartoon characters and the Marvel catalog, how long is it until we finally get a Disney/Marvel game mashup in the vein of Kingdom Hearts? Get on that, Disney.

As Jack Kirby’s mom might have said, “Oy!”
