What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Just Go With It

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here Are Some Green Women Who Probably Aren’t Irish.


Green is a very popular color for skin in fiction, didn’t you know? It seems that green is the default color when it comes to aliens but it seems to me there are just more green characters than blue, purple, red, etc. So to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve rounded up a few icon green women who may or may not be Irish. That’s ok, everyone’s Irish today! 

The Wicked Witch of the West!

DC Comics has a rather large number of women with green skin. Poison Ivy here doesn’t always show up green but it depends on how much chlorophyll she drank that morning. (Just kidding. Probably.)

You’ve also got Miss Martian (aka M’gann M’orzz, aka Megan Morse) from the Teen Titans, currently starring in the animated series Young Justice, and all around awesome chick.

And let’s not forget Jennifer-Lynn Hayden, aka Jade, one of the most awesome Green Lanterns ever.

Of course there’s a very famous green lady over at Marvel too – She-Hulk!

Star Trek is notorious for showcasing green-skinned women, they started in the very first episode of the original series to be exact. Here are two of the clasisics, Vina and Marta.

Don’t you dare mess with Fiona.

And well, just because we can…

So who’s your favorite green lady character? Perhaps it was someone we forgot to include here? Let us know in the comment section. And while we’re in the spirit of things, check out our Power Grid from last year: 10 Geek Bars For Your St. Patrick’s Day Crawl.

    It’s obscure but I’m sad to see no love for Dot Matrix from ReBoot.

    Glad to see the Star Trek ones.  Apparently when one of the episodes was made, they had a bit of a problem with the makeup.  Seems the film technician kept seeing this woman with a green color and thought something was horribly wrong with the film.  So he kept fixing it, and she came out normal colored.  They had to reshoot it a couple of times before they realized what was happening!

    Okay – that picture with Green Lantern and Jade?  Totally looks like he’s reaching out to give her a good grab in the arse. (compounded by that grin on his face :) )

    What do you mean?  She’s right above the Star Trek ladies.  Complete with legal briefcase.  :-)

     ReBoot is obscure?! That makes me sad. EVERYONE should know about ReBoot!

    She-Hulk’s right under the Jade picture. Or do you mean you’re disappointed that you’re not a She-Hulk? ;)

    Each time the new footage was seen, the makeup staff made her even more green, and even MORE green, … until they figured out what was going on.

    Woo Fiona!

    Slightly off topic: I absolutely love apple green, the color. My engagement ring has a green stone in it for that reason.  Also, apparently the design was “Fiona”, so now we jokingly call my fiance Shrek.

    I wish Gaila from the 2009 Trek had been included!

    Only partially green, but I’m voting Jade from Shadow Raiders on the list. And perhaps obscure, Beta from the original Transformers cartoon also gets my vote.

     Maybe more will now that the first two seasons are on Netflix streaming.

    Ah right lol!  The suit was a blinder. My bad.

    My favorite green chick is Shiala from Mass Effect…as far as I know she’s the only green asari in the whole series.
