Could Captain Marvels cat, Goose be a Flerken? Don’t know what a Flerken is exactly, let me give you a quick run down. Flerken look like cats that inhabit earth. Seem normal right? Well the thing about Flerken’s are they also have the ability to lay 117 eggs and have an amazing amount of tentacles that can reach out of their mouths. It is also said that their bodies hold pocket realities, bubbles of space and time that could extend to other worlds. Together with Captain Marvel, this could be a good recipe for success.
I know, I know, it’s a long shot, but it is a shot. If you don’t know what
I’ll touch a bit more about Flerken since if Goose the cat is one, it could hold the key to this whole Infinity War dibacle. Here’s a few things that are pretty cool about them. They may have the ability to hold entire universes in their mouths, and they can enter and access them whenever they want or need to access them.
They also have tentacles, I know, sounds crazy. A cat with tentacles in their mouth? Well, Flerken do, and I’m not saying that Goose is a Flerken, but he could be and that is all that matters. Flerken primarily use these tentacles for support postures or offensive attacks. Seems pretty low key? They have nestled mouths which can indeed spew out maws which is where we see their fury. They have no mercy when biting down and gobbling up just about anything.
Flerken do have dimensional travel which can make quite the mess. It is useful though however for instantaneous travel. In this universe we could use that, and right about now would be perfect in my opinion.
Now Flerken do have the ability to understand humans. They can understand conversations between them.
The only thing that can hold a Flerken back is a muzzle. If their olfactory space is inaccessible, they are rendered useless. We wouldn’t want that now, would we? Rocket Raccoon once tried to defeat “Chewie”, Goose and the kittens. Obviously that didn’t go quite well. Then again not much does go well for Good Ol’Rocket.
Whether or not Goose, who yes is named after the Top Gun Goose, is or isn’t a Flerken, they did take the time to make a poster of his own for the stand alone Captain Marvel movie.
