Hm.  How about the opposite: A set of Aquaman-esque highly specialized
powers, each of which is useful only in a specific situation, but
together, making her a sort of Swiss army knife of heroing?  Or
possibly powers that somehow reflect her ethnic heritages... (I just
want to get the "Minority" part in there somehow.)

Flashback back in the day, but since the names are the only
similarity, it's not even a thing.)
