The Flerken were alien creatures that resembled cats. Rocket Racoon tried to kill Captain Marvel's pet cat Chewie because he thought it was a Flerken, despite Marvel telling him otherwise. It proved to be a Flerken when it laid eggs.[1]


Flerken resembled Earth cats in appearance and behavior. They could lay up to 117 eggs and possessed a myriad of tentacles that could extend from their mouths. Their bodies also held pocket realities, bubbles of space and time that existed in other worlds.[2]

Powers and Abilities


Pocket Dimensions The species are said to be able to store entire universes within their mouths, with which they can access and store a great many of things within to draw upon at will.

  • Tentacle Protrusion: Flerken all possess a mess of tendrils kept within their mouths. They can use these for support and offensive tactics.
  • Nested Mouths: tendrils sprouted also 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.
