    Why not continue what Johns did with Coast City as metaphor. Coast City may be back, but there's still lingering trauma and sadness about those who were killed. (think post 9/11 or Avengers: Endgame after the snap) It could be a recurring theme, giving Coast City its own characteristic and Star Sapphire having a unique hero/city dynamic where her role would be to ultimately help the city heal. (something befitting a hero whose powers are based on love)

    And Carol is part of the corporate elite so they can also focus on the business-to-business dynamic of repairing Coast City .

    There were also a lot of corporate espionage going on in the early Silver Age Green Lantern books so I think it'd be cool to see that come back to a degree.

    GLTAS Carol rocked.

    I still regret to this day that the show was canceled so early in its run. I was hoping we'd see more of her in action later on.

(I really disliked Venditti's first GL run - he made me drop the book and I've never dropped Hal - even bought every issue of "Action Comics Weekly...")
    I couldn't agree with you more.

    I'd also be down for such a book if they are written as a solid couple.

    Yeah, that could be interesting. Maybe so something like some Iron Man stories that are part him balancing running his company/corporate warfare and the other part is being Iron Man.

A book about a test pilot who is also a Fortune 500 CEO and a major backer of the Justice League and a intergalactic space queen would rule. Plus, I still want them to do something about that baby she sold to Neron in the 90s. Aaaanyway, a commission I got from Luis Lackzy of Carol:
    Whew, that is gorgeous. This artist definitely made me like this costume even more.

    Which leads me to ask, what are y'all favorite SS designs?

    Here's mine in order:

    1. Justice League Doom


    2. New 52


    3.Classic

    Yeah, Carol definitely seems like a strong enough character who could headline her own series. The closest it came to that was probably her prominent role in 2011’s Green Lantern: New Guardians.

    This pretty much matches my opinion as well.

    I'm still jealous that Young Justice got another season. Wish that happened to GLTAS too.

    Speaking of Young Justice, first time Kari Wahlgren played Carol.

    Same, though I guess the series' fate was tied up with the failure of the '11 movie which YJ doesn't have with higher ups probably.
