Major Carrie Farris arrived at Peterson Air Force Base with General Calvin Swanwick when an anonymous UFO (later revealed to be the starship of General Dru-Zod) appeared in Earth's orbit. She was later present when Emil Hamilton gave his briefing to Swanwick as to what terraforming was (via Zod's Black Zero and the World Engine working in tandem) and its apocalyptic danger to the planet, and to mankind.
Later, after the Kryptonians invaders were defeated, Farris was driving Swanwick, when a drone crashed to the ground in front of them. Kal-El (now called "Superman") then told the General to stop trying to find his address and information on him. She smiled in spite of herself as Superman took off again, in awe of the handsome alien.
When Lex Luthor re-created the Kryptonian creature Doomsday, Farris was present while Swanwick was speaking with the President of the United States about how to respond to the threat. After the President reluctantly ordered a nuclear strike on Doomsday that would also indirectly harm Superman, she continued to monitor the unfolding results. She relayed the reports from the ground noting that Doomsday had crashed on Stryker's Island but that Superman had yet to emerge.

Behind the scenes
- Initially, Carrie Farris was supposed to hold the rank of Captain rather than Major in Man of Steel. Tie-in materials such as the Man of Steel novelization reflect this fact when they still show her as being Captain.
- In DC Comics, Carol Ferris is a former United States Air Force pilot who became a Star Sapphire, and was a frequent love interest of Hal Jordan.
