Who she is: Originally a woman of German/Vietnamese descent, Mantis was raised by a religious sect of the Kree who believed her to be the Celestial Madonna — their version of the Virgin Mary — set to give birth to the Celestial Messiah. Eventually she was mind wiped and sent back to Earth where she became embroiled with the Avengers, married and merged with the Eldest Cotati, then left our reality to give birth to Space Jesus. Eventually she hooked up with Guardians of the Galaxy to become a member of the team and their unofficial psychological counselor.
Powers: Superhuman strength, speed, and agility. She is a master martial artist, can astral project, and possess formidable telepathic, telekinetic, and pyrokinetic skills.
How she’d fit in: Mantis is the obvious choice here as she’s another female member of the team, has a long history within the Marvel universe, and could kickstart multiple plot points.
