Carol Danvers crackled with energy as she flew at her top speed, ignoring the minor fact that she was in deep space and wasn't even using a spacecraft. As the human hero who had come to be known as Captain marvel, she'd been blessed with powers that far outweigh most of the big guns in her sector of space, and while she had originally served the Kree her eyes had been opened to the plight of the Skrulls and had since then moved to the Skrull home world. Hence she was in a rare position to go to a unknown to her sector of space to respond to a distress she had received.
Despite the air of confidence and smugness she gave off as she blazed the stars towards the source of the distress call, Carol felt a pang of nervousness in her guts knowing that a growing threat named Thanos had been on the move as of late, in a never ending quest to track down the Infinity stones.
'If it's him I'll just have to do what I do best.. and give it my all for the greater good.' The blond hero thought grimly as she came up to the ship that had broadcasted the distress call, unaware that what she was about to face would be like nothing she had ever encountered in her life.
What could only be described from her frame of reference as a walking talking pony in a space suit (As space pony? she supposed it made as much sense as Chewie did really) greeted her as she came aboard.
"Oh, Hello! You must be anther hero.. Sorry, we don't need help anymore but as you know once the signal is sent out.." the nearest of the pony people said, holding out a hand which Carol awkwardly took and shook. "We're Kymellians by the way, you look a little shocked, Figured I'd tell you our race name before you start calling us space ponies like our heroic savoir did." the spa- er.. the Kymellian said with a smile.
"I.. Wasn't thinking that." Carol lamely lied, her cheeks taking on a slight reddish huge and the Kymellians around her smirked knowingly. "What was the trouble anyways? it wasn't Thanos was it? and I'd like to meet your hero if I can."
"Thanos? Oh I WISH it had been someone as easy to handle as him! No, we were attacked by the Phoenix force itself! you DO know what the Phoenix force is right?" The Kymellian asked.
"I've been.. briefed on it." Carol lied, having already shown how new to this sector she was and trying to not look like a total n00b. "But a quick update on it wouldn't hurt. "
"..Mmmhmm.. Well then. 'as you know.'" The Kymellian started, clearly not buying Carol's bullshit but willing to play along. "The Phoenix force is a cosmic being with massive power and is a force of death and birth. The Heroic savoir Katie was able to absorb it all within herself and then trap the force in a doll she had brought with her, since she received our call for help while having a tea party."
"..I'm sorry, what? a tea party? a doll?" Carol asked, her mind spinning that there was something that seemingly would of nerfed Thanos and it had been handled just like that. "It sounds like your heroic savoir is a little girl."
"And what if I am?" Came a cheeky voice, and Carol turned around to see a five year earthling from the looks of it, wearing a banana yellow and black costume and twin blond pigtails. "Names Katie, Katie Powers, but I'm also known as energizer back on earth. Sorry you got dragged out here, I would of responded to the distress call sooner but I was on the potty!"
With a big silly grin, the little girl held out her hand as one could almost hear the gears stalling in Carols head as she tried to figure out exactly what the heck was going on, and how a little girl had dealt with something more dangerous then Thanos.
the only things that made sense to Carol at leas was that A) the threat hadn't of been anywhere NEAR as dire as the space ponies had made out, and that they had just been humoring the little girl.
Or B) was that while it looked like a 5 year old from earth, it clearly had to be some sort of ancient shapeshifting cosmic being as well an-
"Er, ya known, it's kinda rude to ignore someone when they hold out a hand for you. And introduce themselves." Katie said, clearing her throat and giving Carol a semi scolding look. "At least it is back earth.. you are human like me right?"
'Ok, A it is.' Carol thought, smirking and taking Katie's hand in her own, trying not to grasp it too hand but finding the little girl had a stronger gripe then expected.
"Sorry, My name is Carol Danvers, but out here I'm known as Captain Marvel." She said, pausing and waiting for people to react with awe like they always did when she dropped her hero title.
"Huh. Neat. So you been doing this long?" Katie asked.
"I.. You've never heard of me?" Carol asked, sounding almost disappointed then shook her head. "And yes, I've been doing this for quite a few years! What about you? How did someone as young as you become well.. " and she paused and looked around. "A superhero?"
"Oh! Hero origin story time! I love this! here, let's get some comfy seats!" Katie said, giving a big grin and tugging on Carols wrist to lead her to some plush chairs, almost yank Carol off balance till she caught herself, telling herself it had to be just because she had been caught off guard.
Taking a seat and getting comfy, Carol listened as Katie started to ramble on.
- S'ok, My daddy is a super duper smart guy and he was able to make this like, magic doorway.. I mean I know it's not REALLY magic but it's fun to think it is.. anyways! Sooo me and my brothers and sister opened this door to the home world of the space ponies - At this a small cough was heard from one of the aliens and Katie blushed and stuck out her tounge a little, rubbing the back of her head, then went on. -I mean the home of the Kymellian's and well, you know how it goes right? One thing leads to anther and next thing you know not only have me, Alex, Julie and Jack all gotten super powers, but we've scared off a invasion by the evil snark empire, which with how we did it was funny enough! so like, first we -
Carol had been patient long enough, or at least for her she had, and couldn't take anymore of what was clearly just gibberish coming out of the little girls mouth.
"oh come on, what the heck could four -kids- of done to stop a whole alien empire? I think it's FAR more likely that much like your story about handling the Phoenix.. which let's say for a second I actually believe could even be remotely true.. " and She rolled her eyes at THAT but still, better to cross her T's and dot her i's so to speak. "How are you planning on handling it?"
Katie blew a puff of air up from her bottom lip, she wasn't exactly new to having grown up's doubt her, and normally could handle it since like Alex explained to her:
"Katie Bear, most of them are just butt hurt they're not even half as strong as you." but holy Moley was this lady starting to push her buttons!
'Bet her and Jack would get along great..' she thought with a little smirk then spoke out loud. "I'm just going to keep it in my dollie collection back home. It'll be safest there since I'm the one who kicked it's butt, the Kymellian's all agree with me and don't see any problems with it and since it was attacking THEIR space when I stopped it it's their call."
"ok first and foremost, if this is a cosmic threat then it's not the call of whoever's area of space it was in when it beaten, it needs to be handled by someone with the power to hold and contain the thing for the good of the universe." Carol said, rubbing the bridge of her nose, eyes closed for a second then opening them, seeing the little girl smiling and nodding. "By which I mean me. That 'dolly' is coming with me back to the Skrull home world where Me and a elite team I've been training can keep it safe!"
"Hmmmm do you have any laws that give you permission to just barge into someone else's space sector and taking their stuff? because it sounds like a earth law that I can invoke too, and my claim is greater." Katie said.
"...And what earth law would that be?" Carol asked, racking her brains for something, anything like that.
Sure she had been gone from earth for a few years but could they of really of-
"It's called finders keepers!" Katie giggled.
"ok you know what? I done with this. "Carol said and reached to snatch the doll away from Katie, more then sure that she could just yank it away from a little girl with ease and-
And found herself flying across the room, hitting a wall and looking up in shock, Katie's hand raised up and semi glowing.
"Didn't anyone ever tell you stealing is wrong?" Katie asked.
More then done having this little brat lecture her, and all sorts of ticked off she'd been blasted back, Carol powered up and tackled Katie, not caring if she hurt the little brat (in her eyes) as the pair went though a wall and ended up in some sorts of garden, filled with grass, tress and flowers which Carol supposed was there just because they were horse people and liked to gaze.
"hey watch it! this is the Aero.. Aero.. Aeroponics bay!" Katie said, getting up and struggling with the big word. "this is how they refresh the air supply and stuff on the ship all naturally and stuff!"
The fact that this little girl knew more then her just ticked Carol off even worse and screaming in rage she let loose a powerful left handed blow that Katie caught and wagged a finger at her.
"look, I know you're getting all worked up and stuff, but you almost released the phoenix force when you tackled me. I think you need to ju-" Katie was saying when Carol punched her in the face.. which had the effect of making Katie's face screw up and she let go of the hand.
Smirking as she was finally getting a reaction Carol got ready for anther blow when Katie.. started to giggle.
"Heyy no! no fair! First of all, rude interrupting me like that and secondly no tickling!"
"..That.. just tickled you?" Carol asked, feeling a little deflated. She had flattened Ronan the accuser with blows like that and yet this CHILD..
"Oh hey, don't feel bad! I'm sure you're just having a off day!" Katie said quickly, feeling a little bad.
"I'm NOT having a bad day!" Carol growled and charged in, fists swinging and even more annoying then this Brat no selling her attacks, was that Katie was apparently dodging them with ease by..
"Are.. are you Ballina dancing?" Carol asked, stopping and jaw hanging down.
"Yeah! I mean, i just started last year so struggling a little but I think I'm doing pretty good right?"
"I DEMAND THAT YOU STOP MOCKING ME AND TAKE THIS FIGHT SEROUEISLY!" Carol said, stomping a foot and punching a nearby tree, splitting it and making it tumble over.
"..No you don't." Katie said and narrowed her eyes. "and Fine, I won't dodge you anymore. Go ahead and wail away on me, but if I end up having a tinkle attack because your tickling me so much it's on YOUR head.. Just leave the trees and stuff alone!"
with that Katie spread her legs and held her arms out, ready to follow though on her word.
Carol if she had been thinking right, would of A) never wailed away on a little girl like this and B) would of sensed a trap.. but since Katie had gone beyond getting on her last nerve by treating her, captain fricking Marvel like a joke, she powered in everything she had into her blows as she wailed away on the giggling kid, until Katie wasn't even giggling anymore and just looked bored.
"and 3.. 2.. 1.." Katie counted off and before Carol could ask what she was counting, the hero of the Skrull's found herself suddenly depowered, eyes wide in shock.
"W-what just.. How did I?" Carol gasped and tried to power back up, and her powers made a cartoonish farting noise and then nothing.
"Don't worry, you'll power back up sooner or later. Ever since ya popped up on the ship I could tell you were gonna be a big stinky head meanie, but I wanted to give you all the chances I could ta prove me wrong and just leave, but failing at that.." and Katie paused and smiled, coming over to Carol who had sunk down to her knees now and lightly poked the adults forehead with her right index finger. " I've been draining your powers out of you the whole time. that's my main gimmick, I can drain and blast energy, but also learned to use it to make myself stronger and able to take a butt kicking. So the more you wailed away on me.."
"T-The more I was.. Making myself weak!!" Carol said, her eyes blazing with anger as it became clear.
She moved to slap Katie's hand away but the 5 year old powerhouse had already turned away, her uniform gone and she was in a yellow sundress and in bare feet, a portal opening up to take her home to earth.
"Now you be good and behave yourself, the ponies have agreed to let you stay on board till your all be-" Katie was calling a she started to walk away.
started to because the powerless and bitter Carol tackled Katie from behind, counting on the fact the powers were tied into the super suite and sending them both spiraling though the portal and landing in the back yard of the power household.
Katie rolled to her feet, letting out a growl of frustration.
"What is WRONG with you? Give it UP already!" She huffed, shaking her head as Carol slowly got up to her feet, having landed in a roll that ended with her face going into a pile of dirt from a hole that Jack had been digging because 'It seemed like something to do?'
"What's wrong with me is I refuse to accept that I've been smacked around like the red headed step-child BY a child!" Carol growled and lunged, what little bit of tactical skill she had once processed was gone and as the two blonds rolled around in the grass and dirt their battle turned into a playground slap fest.
Carol would actually strike the first move, stomping on Katie's bare toes and making the younger hero yelp. While Katie was holding her toes and hopping on one foot, Carol took advantage to grab the tiny power house and start to give her a noogie and proving that she was FAR better at fighting with playground tactics then a real brawl.
Not to be outdone Katie got free giving Carol a Indian burn then a purple nurple and while Carol was shrinking from that and bending down, Katie stuck her right index finger in her mouth and got the last digit of it wet then (carful not to go too far) stuck it in Carols ear and twisted it.
Carol, who had ALWAYS hated wet willies and just could stand them screamed like the little girl she was fighting and then grabbed at Katie's pigtails, tugging on them to try and force a force a break up. Katie however Countered THIS by taking her finger out and then reaching out blindly and grabbing at carol's waistband and then yanking up.
The squeak that came out of Carol could only of been heard by animals and she let go of Katie's pigtails as Katie would turn around to inspect the damage.. and break out into a fit of giggles.
Clearly when she had been reaching for JUST Carol's panties, she must of just snatched onto the adult's undies and yanked up.. undies that had a cheeseburger print on them that she could make out as Carol was going cross eyed and slowly getting them yanked down.
"Pffft, Nice panties!" Katie giggled, then winced as Carol went down to her knees to finish yanking them out of her butt. "Ah geez.. Ok yeah, that was a bit much. I'm really sorry.. You ready to call it qu- EEP!"
As Katie walked over, ready to reach out a hand and help Carol up, the infuriated adult decided that fair was fair, Katie had seen HER undies so she wanted to see Katie's! (One should note, after having your undies yanked up as high and fast as Carol had, it tended to impact what sadly tiny amount of common sense one might have)
Still she hadn't expected to get a 3 second view of what could only be a pair of Disney princess pull-up's around the young hero's hips.
"Pffftt..BWhahahahaha! Your still in diapers? A five year old is still waddling around and pooping her pants!" Carol cracked, plopping on her butt and laughing hard.
"H-Hey! They're Pull-up's not diapers, and I don't poop myself anymore!' Katie fumed, her face going crimson then because she knew lying was wrong she added. "well not that often.. and shut up!!"
"OH MY GOD, YOUR JUST A BABY! A BIG DUMB BABY!" Carol cackled, Slowly getting to her feet. "If I had know that I would of offered you a ba-ba or your binky~" She teased, leaning in and going to tickle Katie's chin, making coo'ing noises.
Now if Carol's big no no button was a wet willy, Katie's was being called a baby. Sure she might of posed as one to fool baddies once or twice but this was a lady who's butt she had not only kicked, but depowered and had clearly forgotten both of those facts.
"I'm gonna give you ONE chance, to say sorry and leave here peacefully." Katie growled, making a fist and glaring at Carol.
"What are you gonna do if I don't, Make a boom boom in your widdle dia-" Before Carol could finish, Katie hit her with a upper cut that sent carol flying back into the pile of dirt from the hole Jack had been digging, her face semi buried in it though her nose was out and Ko'ed.
As a final insult the back of her pants came down and as she was butt up and face down her semi ruined cheeseburger undies were on display as Katie put her hands on her side and turned her head, blowing out a breath of air.
"I told you.. their pull-up's not diapers." She huffed.
In the after math Katie simply called up anther portal and dumped the still dazed and loopy Carol back onto the ship from before, and fixed up the yard from the fight the best she could while thinking about how funny this story was gonna be when she told the rest of the Power siblings.
