Susan Oliver was playing a green-skinned Orion slave girl, but I had to test her makeup because she was too expensive and I was under contract already; I was cheap, they had to pay me anyway. The makeup they put on me was green as green can be, but they kept on sending out the rushes and we would get it back for the next day, and there I was just as pink and rosy as could possibly be. This went on for three days until they finally called the lab and said, “What do we do? We’re trying to get it green.” And they said, “You want that? We’ve been color-correcting.”

    This story was used to good effect in the comic issue Fantastic Four #275.

    https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Fantastic_Four_Vol_1_275

    She Hulk was suntanning on the top of the Baxter building, and some jerks in a helicopter blew off her bathing suit and got some topless photos.

    They sold them to some shady skin magazine, and even though She Hulk sued, couldn’t stop them from going to print…

    Where the printer color corrected everything to remove the green, just showing an angry woman on a roof.

    They even referenced the Star Trek story in the book.

      The story was written and drawn by John Byrne, who himself is a massive Star Trek fan, so would have been aware of this story.

      Great to see someone bring some positive She-Hulk energy here. Difficult to choose between the Byrne and Slot run’s for a favourite.

      I just know that Mariner and Jen would get on fabulously.
