POCKET BATTLEFIELD

Classification: Extradimensional (Macroverse) technology

Creator: Unrevealed (presumably someone within the Pink Pantheon)

User/Possessors: Noh-Varr, Pink Pantheon, Star Splendor

First Appearance: Marvel Boy II#2 (September, 2000)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Pocket Battlefield was a pink cube that could expand to an unrevealed size. It possessed nine default environmental modes all with their own self-contained physics. It interfaced with the unconscious senses of the user to compensate the physical distortions which disabled the enemy.

History:

(Marvel Boy II#2 (fb) - BTS) - Star Splendor of the 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt stole the Pocket Battlefield from the Pink Pantheon after the Matter Fax malfunctioned and cloned the entire Macroverse. It was stored in the archive of the Marvel.

(Marvel Boy II#2) - Noh-Varr took the Pocket Battlefield to New York's surface and used it when the Bannermen attacked him. It expanded until the Bannermen were all enveloped. Noh-Varr then entered the Battlefield himself while Plex read to him the Battlefield's manual. With the changed physics inside the Battlefield Noh-Varr was able to beat two of the disoriented Bannermen. The third Bannerman hulked up and Plex called in civilians to surround him. The Bannerman couldn't hurt them and was beaten by them when he transformed back into his human form. Noh-Varr then left the Pocket Battlefield and continued with his message to the leaders of Earth.

(All-New Savage She-Hulk#3) - Captain Marvel (Noh-Varr) untilized the Pocket Battlefield in a fight against Earth-8009's She-Hulk (Lyra). Though she nearly beat him, Lyra got distracted when Wolverine (Daken) entered the Battlefield and Noh-Varr used the toxin in his thumbnail to knock her out. Noh-Varr then shut off the Battlefield again.

Comments: Created by Grant Morrison & J.G. Jones.

I'm not 100% sure that the Battlefield came from the Macroverse, but I assume it did because Star Splendor stole it from the Pink Pantheon after an incident in the Macroverse.

And I don't know if it was a unique item or just one of many Pocket Battlefields.

The fun part about Noh-Varr's fight with Lyra was that he kept calling her Bannerwoman, which was a clearly a reference to the Bannermen and the fact that Lyra is the Hulk (Bruce Banner)'s daughter.
