While under the effect of her "deal with the devil", she had the power to make nightmares real.

Having a lot in common with Selina Kyle, Molly Mayne was a "bad" girl attracted to a super hero. In order to win the attention of Alan Scott, she committed a series of fairly innocuous crimes, and, having gotten him to look in her direction, would occasionally join him on the right side of the law.

The original Green Lantern, though, never returned her affections, and she eventually cut a deal with the government for amnesty and gave up her life of (petty) crime. In return, she spent the latter part of World War II running spy missions for the US government.

The Green Lantern, meanwhile, married Rose (aka Thorn). When she died, he realized that he was, indeed, in love with Mayne. They soon got married and were quite happy together. As time passed, though, a side effect of the Starheart (the source of the original Green Lantern's power) became apparent: he aged at a substantially slower rate than she did. Eventually, the discrepancy in their ages threatened the stability of their relationship, so she literally made a deal with the devil. At the cost of her soul, she was de-aged.

When Scott became aware of the peril he went to Hell and rescued her soul. When it was re-integrated with her body, she returned to her rightful physical age. Luckily for the couple, Scott was, through different means, returned to his true age.

The couple returned to a stable relationship, and remain married today.
