Chewie was Carol Danvers's pet, whom she believed to be a normal domesticated cat.[1]

When Carol, now Captain Marvel, left Earth to explore the universe, she took Chewie with her. When she encountered the Guardians of the Galaxy, member Rocket Raccoon identified Chewie as a "Flerken," a dangerous alien species similar to Earth's cats. Rocket tried to kill Chewie "before it could lay eggs," but Carol interrupted his hunt.[2]

Weeks later, Chewie was revealed to be in fact a Flerken, having laid over a hundred eggs at the time Captain Marvel's ship was stormed by a goo-like hive.[3] Captain Marvel, Carol's friend Tic, Rocket, and Chewie managed to fight off the aliens, while Chewie's eggs hatched. Carol took Chewie and her 117 offspring to a rescue center in the Tyvorn Cluster, where she planned to leave her and the kittens to be taken care of, however, Chewie later teleported back to Carol's ship to stay with her.[4]

While hunting a rat in Carol's apartment, Chewie was ambushed and bonded to by the Carnage symbiote, turning her into one of Carnage's minions.[5]

Chewie unleashing her tentacles

It was theorized by Doctor Mohan that Flerkens have access to pocket dimensions located inside their body. In these "bubbles," they can store a large amount of things, like eggs, fanged mouths, or even tentacles for offensive capabilities. They also use these subspaces as a means of instantaneous transport although the process is messy to say the least.[4]
