The Superman titles have Supergirl.
The original Captain Marvel has Mary Marvel.
Mick Anglo's Marvelman had Kid Marvelman instead of a female character.
Alan Moore restored a female character to the Marvel/Miracle Family:
"To have seen her then, as Liz described her later: cold and glittering, a statue of cut glass, immaculate save for gauntlets darkened by unEarthly blood...
"Aphrodite risen from the churning foam where fell the manhood of Cronos."
At last, the words match the ideas and strongly connect with Greek myths.
