Bereet was created by Doug Moench and Walt Simonson and her first appearance was in the Incredible Hulk number 269 in March of 1982.
An ambitious and prominent alien techno art filmmaker Bereet created several fictional films about Hulk and won acclaim in Krylorian society. She had previously used many of the inhabitants Earth as platform for her creations but became tired of her films not being seen as inspiring art as she once had believed her them to be.
Deciding to change formats and make a documentary about the real Hulk, she traveled to Earth and arrived in time to aid the Hulk. There she helped Bruce Banner, at that time able to maintain his personality in the Hulk's body, cure Rick Jones of radiation poisoning. She next helped the Hulk in a battle with the U-Foes, a group villains changed by radiation when traveling in space. After this when Betty Ross temporarily abandoned Banner, Bereet briefly became romantically involved with him.
During her time with Banner Bereet subsequently met success on Earth with her finished documentary, "The Life And Times Of The Incredible Hulk". As Banner became seen as a hero and not a monster for the first time and welcomed by both the government and the superhero community Bereet followed his exploits filming along the way. However, it seems probable that her fortunes fell and rose with the many changes in the Hulk himself.
As she attempted to continue her filming of the superhero community and earn the respect as an artist she loss faith in Hollywood. Realizing that neither in her home world of Krylor or her adopted home on Earth that her films would be seen as art and not just entertainment. Her current whereabouts and activities are unrevealed.
In this alternate reality taking place during a time when Bruce Banner, the Hulk, would be sealed in a chamber in a secret lab at night, the Hulk escapes and battles the military before changing back into Bruce Banner.
Meanwhile, aliens known as the Krylorians have arrived on Earth for the purposes of invading it and their ships have been sighted over Rome. Deciding to take a vacation to Rome, Bruce Banner goes takes it with Rick Jones. Along the way, Bruce turns into the Hulk and smashes out of the plane. The Hulk fights one of the Krylorian spy, and is confronted by his old foe the Gargoyle, who has found himself mutated back into a Gargoyle form. He seeks an alliance with the Krylorians, however the Krylorians are plotting to use him for their own ends and ultimately betray him.
The Hulk and Rick Jones however team up with Bereet, a renegade Krylorian who uses techno-art pieces as weapons, and with the help of the Gargoyle (who sacrifices himself to destroy some of the Krylorian ships) manage to fight off the initial invasion fleet. With the initial attack over, Bereet warns the Hulk and Rick that this is just the beginning. They both agree to help Bereet stop the invasion plans of her own people.
This story was later revealed to be a work of fiction created by Bereet of Earth-616. However, according to the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Vol. 3, this is an alternate reality, designated Earth-7711.
