Carol Ferris has always been in the life of Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern of sector 2814, whether it's to love him or love him to death. She's known Hal since he was a child. She's been his boss for many years. She's been his sworn enemy and trusted ally. If there's anything you can say about Carol Ferris, it's that her history is just as insane as Hal's.
She's not only the head of Ferris Air, the company Hal once worked for, but she's also a on-again, off-again member of the Star Sapphires, who's powers come from love, which Carol has quite a bit of for Hal.
Carol Ferris first appeared in Showcase #22, which is also the first appearance of the modern-day Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. However, over the years, Carol, like many other characters in the Green Lantern mythos had her history updated and tweaked.== TEASER ==
Secret Origin redefined Carol Ferris in many ways. She was no longer the love-sick puppy begging for Green Lantern's attention. She was now the head of Ferris Air, a headstrong woman, and she didn't take any garbage from anyone. The days of Carol "Pushover" Ferris are long and gone, and the days of Carol "Don't Mess With Me or I'll Beat You Up" Ferris are here to stay.
As Hal's boss, Carol had a strict policy on dating: "no employees." That didn't stop the two from hooking up and eventually becoming a couple. Obviously, when dating a member of the Green Lantern Corps, a relationship will suffer. Mainly because members of the Green Lantern Corps can be gone for weeks, months, or maybe even a year fighting evil all across the cosmos.
So their relationship was hit and miss. This especially happened when when the couple ends up getting into some pretty gruesome battles against each other, when Carol Ferris becomes the Star Sapphire.
In Green Lantern #16, Carol became the Star Sapphire for the first time. She was originally kidnapped by the Zamarons and brought to their home planet in order to become the Queen of the Star Sapphires. The Zamarons did this because they knew of the connection between Carol and the Green Lantern.
Carol was made into the Star Sapphire, the Queen of the Star Sapphires to be exact. The Star Sapphires (during the revamp) are a lot like the Green Lanterns except their rings are powered by love and not will. The crazy kind of love. Carol spent the days as the on-again, off-again Queen of the Star Sapphires, and one thing she noticed more and more is that controlling the power became harder and harder.
Later on, Carol's subconscious created an entity called " The Predator," which ended up being essentially everything Carol wanted in a man. That's right, Carol's whole life is all about finding the right man. That same Predator was changed into one of the seven entities of the emotional spectrum.
More recently, during the War of Light story, Carol excepted the Star Sapphire once again in order to lead that Corps. She went toe-to-toe against Sinestro and eventually, she found a way to release herself from the influence of the Star Sapphire while still retaining it's power. Now she was able to lead that Corps under her own power and not under the madness that the Star Sapphire created.
During the Blackest Night story, the Star Sapphire Central Battery was destroyed and Carol teamed up with the other Lantern Corps to stop the Black Lantern threat. After the events of Blackest Night, Carol ended up seeking out the Predator entity, and she is still a Star Sapphire.
What role will Carol have in the upcoming film? I'm about 99.9% positive she will not be a Star Sapphire. She'll most likely be the head of Ferris Air and Hal's boss. Will there be some love between Hal and Carol? Most likely. It's a summer blockbuster. There's always a love story.
