Green Lantern Affinity – Carol Ferris

Her name is Carol Ferris and she is the C.E.O of Ferris Aerospace. A legacy her father, aerospace mogul Carl Ferris left her when he perished in a plane crash. The best thing she ever did while in charge was making the choice of hiring Hal “Asphalt Abs” Jordan. She does everything in her power not to fall in love with him, but hey, he’s Hal “the best Green Lantern” Jordan! What’s not to love? Soon Jordan discovers a ring and Carol is absorbed into a series of misadventures.

Being the boss is hard and having a full blown crush on the fearless, hunk-o-matic test pilot is even harder. Add to the fact that Jillian "Cowgirl" Pearlman is stealing your man’s heart away and girl we got problems. Enter the Zamarons, female members of the race known as the Maltusians keepers of the Star Sapphire; they hear Carol’s longing towards the human known as Hal “Thunder Buns” Jordan. To honor her broken heart, the Sapphires send her a violet power ring, transforming her into one of the Star Sapphires.

"For hearts long lost and full of fright,

For those alone in blackest night,

Accept our ring and join our fight,

Love conquers all-- with violet light!"

When the Sapphires need a charge the ladies recite that oath. Now a member of the Star Sapphires, she returns to Zamaron in time to battle the invading Sinestro Corps. As she throws down with Sinestro the two of them are interrupted by the Black Lantern Amon Sur. This begins the gathering of ring bearers to combat the Darkest Night prophecy.

After that Blackest Night hits and shit get real, Carol fights Amon Sur. But the Star Sapphire central power battery was destroyed during the battle. So she hooks up with the rest of the Lanterns and heads to Earth to throw down with Nekron and his horde of Black Lanterns. Once defeated, the events for Brightest Day begin but nobody cares because Brightest Day sucked.  The one thing that you need to know is Carol loves Hal, always and forever.

So that’s what you get when you take the main protagonist’s love interest and remove the tired cliché of a damsel in distress. Give the powers of the hero; show her it’s cool to join a gang. The best part of Ms. Ferris is she’s not annoying, she’s a strong female character and can hold her own for the most part. Hell, she’s the strongest of the Star Sapphires and there’s no shame in that--plus she’s hot!
