The Flerken are alien creatures resembling cats. Captain Marvel's pet cat Chewie was a Flerken, but she was unaware of that fact. She came to learn this years after having Chewie, in a space adventure during which Chewie laid eggs.
Flerken resemble Earth cats in appearance and behavior. They can lay up to 117 eggs and possess many tentacles that can extend from their mouths. Their bodies also hold pocket realities, bubbles of space and time that exist in other worlds.
Powers and Abilities
Pocket Dimensions: The species are said to be able to store entire universes within their mouths, within which they can access and store a great many things to draw upon at will.
- Tentacle Protrusion: Flerken possess a mess of tendrils kept within their mouths. They can use these for support and offensive tactics.
- Nested Mouths: Sprouted tendrils host a nest of fanged and ravenous maws which can bite down on and gobble up just about anything.
- Dimensional Travel: The sub-spaces within themselves can also be used as a means of instantaneous transportation; the process can be messy to say the least, however.
- Toxicity: In the Earth-199999 reality, a scratch from a Flerken causes severe tissue damage to humanoids, as Nick Fury found out when a claw swipe from Goose to his left eye resulted in scarring and permanent loss of function.
Human intellect: Able to understand cognitive conversation.
Alien aspects are accessed through their oral cavity. If somehow muzzled, a Flerken is as helpless as an Earth cat.
Population: Dwindling: 118 known living specimens
