Miraclewoman

DC Comics have Wonderwoman.
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."
-Miracleman #11.

At last, the words match the ideas and strongly connect with Greek myths.
