In Northern California at Ferris Aircraft, Carol Ferris is reminiscing over her former life when a mysterious power revitalises and reforms the abandoned, condemned fields. Hal Jordan, using his powers as the Spectre, appears. She asks Hal whether he remembers anything from when he was the Spectre. Hal says he remembers it as if he were watching it from the outside.
How Spectre thinks, and who he talked to beyond this life, Hal cannot recall. Hal apologizes for everything Carol had to go through. Carol says she survived and that she is not going to sell the airbase. She says that if Hal can rebuild his life, so can she, and that she is going to do so with her husband, Gil.

The ring tells Carol that she has a hole in her heart but Carol continues to deny it. The ring tells Carol that she has continually put aside her own happiness for the benefit of others. Because she is capable of doing this, Carol could become the most powerful Star Sapphire in the universe and that the Zamarons recognized this and sent her the ring with the intention of having Carol lead the entire Star Sapphire army into battle alongside the Green Lantern Corps.

Carol still refuses to accept the ring, but the ring shows her a vision of the War of Light and indicates that Hal Jordan will not survive and tells her that by accepting the ring, she can save him. Still having feelings for Hal, Carol accepts and is called back to Zamaron by Queen Aga'po where Carol's army awaits to defend the planet from the approaching Sinestro Corps.
Then she takes on Sinestro who says that he has never held ill will toward Carol and wonders why she is doing this for a man who has never truly given his heart toward her. The two engage in a fight and are equally matched until Carol attempts to encase him in one of the brainwashing crystals that the Zamarons use to "recruit" new followers. Sinestro lashes out after witnessing a vision of Arin Sur, his former love, blasting Carol across the battlefield where she was subdued by two other Yellow Lanterns and Sinestro himself.
However, before he could capitalise on the advantage, the Black Lanterns invade, led by Amon Surshocking both Carol and Sinestro. The group escapes Zamaron moments before Black Lantern rings reanimated the bodies of the two beings whose love fueled the Star Sapphire's central power battery, devastating the planet in the process.
For some reason, the loss of the Star Sapphire's power source did not seem to affect Carol's powers. Eventually, she deputizes Wonder Woman as a temporary Star Sapphire, due to her great ability to feel love, thus undoing Nekron's control of the Amazon. In an attempt to stop the Spectre, Hal releases Parallax's essence, deciding to join with him again to fight back. Carol tries to stop Hal, but he refuses to be swayed. Carol kisses Hal, telling him "I love you", before Hal allows Parallax to possess him.
She frees him from the Predator by kissing him. After that, Carol and Hal are taken to Zamaron. The Queen gives her life to sustain the central power battery and gives her title to Carol Ferris. As she started an invasion on Zamaron with her manhawks, they are approached by Carol and the Predator.
She then tells Hawkman the reason is that the couple have a great love, a greater love then she and Hal Jordan could ever have.
Guy Gardner later uses Carol's ring along with Atrocitus 's Red Lantern ring in order to remove Parallax from the central power battery.
After Krona is killed by Hal, she reclaims the violet ring of the Zamarons. When Hal is stripped of his ring, she returns with him to Earth. Carol offers Hal a job at Ferris Aircraft, but not as a pilot because of insurance issues. Hal asks her out to dinner and Carol thinks he is going to propose. When he does not, she walks out on him and drives away, leaving him without a ride.
Carol accepts Hal's apology and they renew their relationship. However, when they arrive at the scene of the fight, they discover nothing but more 'conventional' zombies and are informed that Hal and Sinestro are apparently dead.Star Sapphire - Origin
However, Carol rejects the idea that Hal is dead as the link between her heart and his which she can sense via her ring is still intact, with her ring's visions informing her that Kyle must unite the powers of all seven Corps in himself to stop this latest threat. After getting a lock on Sinestro's location, Carol and Kyle arrive at the planet Korugar's ruins, where Sinestro attacks them both, blaming them for his home's destruction by the First Lantern.
When Carol demands to know where Hal is, Sinestro states that Hal is dead, but Carol refuses to believe him and attacks. When Kyle splits the White Lantern ring into seven after realizing that the power is too great for him to control on his own, he chooses Carol as one of the six new members of the White Lantern Corps; however, she decides to keep her violet ring.
As Star Sapphire, she can use her gem of power to fly and to hurl blasts of force nearly equal to the power of a Green Lantern's ring. Moreover, the Sapphire bestows upon her a certain amount of invulnerability and allows her to survive in airless space. During the most recent battle with Star Sapphire, Carol was temporarily empowered by Hal's ring, granting her strength and a certain degree of invulnerability.
During this, Carol was clad in a version of her Sapphire uniform, but with Green Lantern design. These powers were provided by exposure to Hal's power ring and were temporary. Carol now wields a less powerful violet power ring as a member of the Star Sapphires, which replicates her original powers as Star Sapphire to a degree as well.
Despite being helplessly overwhelmed before, Carol's previous exposures to the Star Sapphire's power are assumed[ citation needed ] to have given her a certain tolerance to the violet ring's current influence. Evil's Might, set during the American women's suffrage movementCarol is a New York City suffragette and is swept up in a conflict for worker's safety, her hand in marriage, and control of green power rings that have surfaced in town.
Hal forces the Shark to crash his jet into Carol's jet, and both of them barely escape using the ejection system. Upon their return to America, Carol thinks Hal is not living up to his potential.
Afterward, Carol is angry at Hal for taking a mission for the U. Hal refuses; however, she goes anyway. During the battles, Carol sees Hal drop the missile through New Themyscira's invisible shield but he is killed in the process. Afterward, Carol returns to Coast Citywhere Thomas Kalmaku gives her a note saying that Hal was too afraid to say that he had always loved her.
Carol sees the engagement ring that he was going to propose to her with. She recognizes that Hal is concerned over the way things have gone since Superman's Regime escalated and waits for him to come back after he is called away by the Guardian Ganthet. Hal, however, is ungrateful and uses his ring to knock Guy away and take Carol. This leads Ganthet to strip Hal of his ring, leaving him and Carol to plummet.
Sinestro offers Hal a yellow ring for a replacement, and Hal reluctantly takes it to save Carol. The Spectrum War, in which the universe was destroyed by Nekron, Carol is one of the few survivors after Ganthet sacrifices himself to initiate the 'Last Light' protocol, sending himself, the last ring-wielders, and the last six rings of the other six corps into the new Star Trek universe. Although Leonard McCoy —the chosen wielder of the Indigo ring—is able to confirm that Walker will recover, Carol reveals to Hal that Nekron has been drawn into their new universe as well.
Carol appears in issue 11 of the Young Justice tie-in comic book series. While her identity is never stated, the show's creators have confirmed that she's indeed Carol Ferris. Her power come from her mask's stone which gives her Green Lantern-like abilities that enable her to form shields, create energy constructs, fire power blasts, create a full-body field that enables her to fly, and travel through deep space.
She is initially repelled by the idea of working with "common criminals" but seems to warm to the amount of money that Luthor promises each of them something that keeps her from quitting after their initial plan fails.
When Aresia reveals the group's agenda, she is initially shocked by the revelation, but ultimately joins enthusiastically. While aligned with this team, she successfully tricks Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl into believing that she still wants to live in a world with men, luring them into a trap that subdues both them and Hippolyta. Later on, she and Aresia, along with Tsukuriflee with Hippolyta aboard Aresia's plane. Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl pursue them, and she is knocked out of the fight when Wonder Woman wrenches one of the plane's laser cannons free from its housing and hurls it at her from behind; plunging her into the sea.
She joins Grodd 's Secret Society. During the mutiny led by Grodd, she sides with Luthor, and thus is among the survivors who arrive on Earth in time to warn of Darkseid 's impending invasion.
During the battle, she is struck unconscious by a beam from an Apokoliptan cannon, but is saved from falling to her death by Shining Knight. She is last seen fleeing the Metro Tower along with the other surviving members of the Secret Society. Although she appears in both her human and Star Sapphire forms, she is unaware of her transformations.
Carol is transformed into Star Sapphire after the Zamarons abduct and implant their queen's spirit within her and bestow a violet power ring upon her. Whenever Carol places the ring on her finger, she loses control of her body when she transforms into Star Sapphire with her power being fueled by Carol's recent frustration with her lover Hal Jordan's erratic behavior.
Star Sapphire ultimately attempts to open a portal that allows an army of Zamarons to invade Earth but the invasion is repelled by Jordan and Batman. After the Zamarons are sent back to their homeworld, Carol eventually regains control and casts the Star Sapphire out of her body while apparently losing all of her memories of her time under the ring's influence.
The Animated Seriesvoiced by Jennifer Hale. At the same time though, Carol and Kyle have developed a bond throughout the course of this series that Jordan seems intent on developing further: Now, the obvious route to take would be to have Carol and Kyle realize that they love each other.
That way Carol could keep her powers without having to be trapped in some kind of long distance not-quite-relationship with Hal. Basically, what it says to me is that if Carol has to love Hal to keep her powers, then her power lies in the love of a man. In other words, she has power because of a man.
I know it may sound corny as hell, but damn it, I like it better than the alternative. Jordan is painting an interesting picture for the guy here. What is a Lightsmith? But hey, maybe all of the creators are working together on this one.
What are your thoughts Shelby? Is this book shaping up for you? Do you like the direction Carol and Kyle are going? Do you think they are doing enough to differentiate themselves from their departed brethren, or are they no better? Oh, and what about Brad Walker?
