(Sensational She-Hulk I#12 (fb) - BTS) - Strapped for cash following Atlantis' recent, failed attempt at conquering the surface world, warlord Krang came upon a lucrative scheme. Inspired by an old plan of Namor's, he started Major Motion Pictures studios and announced the production of a movie about She-Hulk (Jennifer Walters). Krang raised a hundred million dollars from various backers, planning to spend only fraction on the actual film and pocket the remaining money when the movie tanked.

(Sensational She-Hulk I#12) - The man destined to play Wolverine answered a casting cattle call at Major Motion Pictures, joining several other actors who were already in costume as well. The visiting She-Hulk looked in on them during the studio tour she got from publicist Sam Gladhand.

(Sensational She-Hulk I#12 - BTS) - Obviously unconcerned with proper casting, She Hulk movie director Devane Waters hired Wolverine and several other actors who barely resembled their real life counterparts, including the X-Men and superheroes like Captain America, Spider-Man and Thor. They were immediately rushed to the set where Waters was ready to start shooting.

(Sensational She-Huk I#12) - Waters directed She-Hulk star P. Isadora along with Wolverine and the other X-Men in their fight scene against a giant robot. She-Hulk looked on in astonishment and even tried to point out the factual inaccuracy of the scene: she'd never even joined the X-Men. Wolverine used his claws on the robot's metal hide, thereby bending them out of shape. Waters stopped filming to have them fixed. He watched from a distance as She-Hulk finally lost her temper when she learned Pee Wee Herman had been cast to play her love interest Wyatt Wingfoot in the movie. She lashed out at the giant robot, thinking it was just a prop. In reality, it was Orka the Killer Whale in disguise sent by Krang to attack and kill her to generate even more bad publicity. In the ensuing brawl, She-Hulk and Orka tore through many sets.

(Sensational She-Hulk I#12 - BTS) - She-Hulk eventually faced down Krang who gleefully told her all about his scam. However, because of ironclad contracts there was no way for Jennifer Walters to legally shut down production. Filming on She-Hulk: The Movie continued without further interference. However, much to everyone's surprise the expected flop turned out to be a record breaking hit, topping the box office for at least ten straight weeks.

krang Following the success of the first She-Hulk movie, I'd like to think a sequel was ordered which might have turned into a very lucrative movie career for the actor playing Wolverine.

On the strength of this fill in issue alone, Peter David seems a far better fit than Steve Gerber to write Sensational She-Hulk following John Byrne's departure. It's a great, self aware story with tons of tiny (in)jokes that still hold up. Even Krang's claims that it'd be absurd to think even a well made superhero film would ever earn over 200 million is unintentionally hilarious after more than a decade of MCU movies.
