Since I love Marvel comics and I love Phineas and Ferb, loving Mission Marvel was a no brainer.
I think the best part of Phineas and Ferb is that my wife and daughter love the show as well. Its awesome "geeking" out as a family and sitting down together and watch an episode. Or after we put the kids to bed, my wife and I watching episodes on demand...DEFINE AWESOME (geeking out with your wife)! This was no different.
Here is a list of "Easter Eggs" I noticed after watching Mission Marvel for the 4th time (this time I had a notepad). If you see something I missed, please leave a comment; otherwise enjoy....
In the title sequence, Spider-Man tells Aunt May about what Phineas and Ferb are doing a la Candace and mom.
The gang starts the episode surfing in space...possible homage to Silver Surfer...
The gang then talks about how they powered their boards with Cosmic Rays...the source of the Fantastic Four's powers...
Stan Lee first cameo: He is selling Hot Dogs at his Excelsior Hot Dog stand.
After the heroes lose their powers, Nick Fury says "Yes, yes I have" ... the "Yes, yes I..." comment used constantly on the show.
After Doofenshmirtz takes away the heroes' powers, he updates his L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. blog ... L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. is an acronym for League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness which was introduced in the Nerdy Dancing episode of Phineas and Ferb
Red Skull comments about that Doofenshmirtz sounds Drusselsteinian and he has a Drusselsteinian relative. ...So the Red Skull has a relative from Doofenshmirtz's hometown.
Spider-Man asks Phineas "Aren't you a little young to be stealing superhero's powers?" ...the question "Aren't you a little young to be..." is constantly asked of Phineas.
Nick Fury, Red Skull, and Venom comment about Agent P not having powers: Is he some kind of super platypus with super platypus powers? Does he have a super platypus exoskeleton? Is he super-soldier platypus like Captain America? Was he was bitten by a radioactive platypus, like Spider-Man?
Doofenshmirtz askes if Red Skull's head might burst into flames ... a Ghost Rider reference
The heroes and Phineas and Ferb go to a small shed-like building called the Secret Hideout for Emergency Defects (or S.H.E.D. for short) ... a play on S.H.I.E.L.D. OR a play on TARDIS from Dr. Who
After entering the S.H.E.D. , the inside looks bigger than the outside and Ferb makes a comment about it "just a little British sci-fi technology." A Dr. Who and Tardis reference
Thor makes a comment about Iron Man's armory ... making reference to the Beak 2.0 armor
Candace geeks out and asks the heroes to read her fan-fiction, Spider-Man refuses since they are not allowed to accept unsolicited material
During Doofenshmirtz "Evil Buddies and Me" number, a giant floating baby head passes by MODOK
Venom steals hotdogs from Stan Lee
As the heroes face the villains with their restored powers switched, a frustrated Thor refers to talking to Iron Man like talking to a bilgesnipe ...he refereed to this mythical beast in the Avengers movie
After the heroes are rescued by Agent P, Spiderman asks if that was Howard the Duck
After making Phineas mad, Candice walks off while a piano plays something awfully close to the closing theme of the live action Incredible Hulk TV series and Buford makes a reference to not making Phineas angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry ... homage to a popular line from show
Major Monogram is seen on Agent P's communicator wearing an eye patch and a goatee a la Nick Fury (calls it a face mullet)
The Red Skull traps Doofenshmirtz and Agent P in traps similar to what Doofenshmirtz uses every episode
Doofenshmirtz continues to talk about the Red Skull's accent; suggesting he get a speech therapist
Buford talks down Hulkjeet and causes him to transform back to normal a la the Hulk movie and Betty Ross talking the Hulk into turning back to normal
The villains use the Power Draininator to disintegrate Stan Lee's hot dog cart
A falling Iron Man is saved by Hulkjeet a la the Hulk saving Iron Man in the Avengers movie.
After being saved, Iron Man says "We have a Baljeet" a la "We have a Hulk" line from the Avengers movie
Doofenshmirtz uses his Waffleinator against the villains ...this was unveiled at D23 Expo in real life
After the heroes regain their powers, Thor's hammer has a bunch of parking tickets and a boot on it.
With their powers restored, the heroes and Agent P stand ready as the camera rotates around them. ...Homage to the rotating scene in the Avengers movie as the heroes stand back to back
A grade for Mission Marvel! Would've gotten an A+ if it had featured Black Widow...LOL
On my quest to Comic Con 2014, I am NOT going to dress as this guy!
This is Olympic gold medalist Jefferson Pierce, he was born with the meta-gene (DC comics version of mutants). He donned the costume and called himself Black Lightning to battle local thugs that were threatening his neighborhood. Later he joined Batman when he formed the Outsiders and still later he joined the Justice League.
He has the ability to generate and magnify electromagnetism. Black Lightning uses this ability to fire bolts, generate force fields, among other effects. He suppressed this ability for most of his life.
He first appeared in Black Lightning #1 (April 1977), and was created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden.
