            I know the wings are hot, but are they warm by the time you’re at the last wing?

                                              I'm really glad actors are adding more internet based stuff when they go on movie promotions. Some of these people I'm big fans of but don't want to watch them on a late night show or Today

                                                "Possibly one of the finest hair-revealing moments in the entire He-Man and She-Ra series occurs in the episode "The Witch and The Warrior." Evil-Lyn, complaining about the heat in the desert, takes off her helmet. What does surprise us all is that she has white hair; very short hair at that. Oddly, the script written by Paul Dini actually states that she should have "short black hair."" - He-Man.org

                                                So technically, Kumail is correct.
