(Damage Control IV#2 (fb)) - An alien Flerken, Rooster devoured Henry Worley, the husband of the elderly Mrs. Worley who kept Rooster as a pet despite Rooster having eaten Henry.
(Damage Control IV#2) - After waiting in line to make an insurance claim with Damage Control, Mrs. Worley and Rooster entered the "office" (a bathroom) of Damage Control intern Gus, who introduced himself and admitted he liked Mrs. Worley's cat. Mrs. Worley insisted that Rooster was not a cat but an alien Flerken, to which Gus amended his statement to say he liked her Flerken.

Worley in her Hell's Kitchen studio apartment. Shocked that Mrs.
Worley's stories about Rooster were apparently false, Gus was then

outlandish things she had claimed to own. Following his scolding from
Robin Chapel about being grifted by those trying to make insurance
claims with Damage Control, Gus was asked to keep an eye out for
Rooster, whom Mrs. Worley warned she would set loose in the Damage
Control offices if her insurance claim was not approved.
(Damage Control IV#5) - Rooster was outside the Damage Control
offices cleaning itself on a dumpster when Gus walked by carrying the
cosmic Galactus Seed artifact. As Gus continued walking while the
Galactus Seed spoke to him, the alien Klyntar symbiote Urinal Cake
creeped towards Rooster and tried to talk Rooster into coming closer to
it. Rooster hissed at Urinal Cake then extended several tentacles to
devour Urinal Cake, who screamed in fear. Rooster then went back to
