Looks to me that she'll get her own source of powers, since the Olympian gods and heroes abilities are now up for grabs, the trial thing, while I think Billy now has the abilities of the gods that Shazam had, Voldar, Lumian, Arel, Ribalvei, Elbiam, and Marzosh, as well as the Rock of Eternity, now that he's the wizard.
Don't know on whether she'll get dark gods, since Eclipso will be involved, or the source that she had in pre-crisis, but they may want to do research on those gods and goddesses.

Like say Beauty of Aurora which seems to be about renewal which could be a source of invulnerability like the Courage of Achilles and Mehen.

While Ariadne is said to be a fertility goddess which seems more like stamina, then skill, which Minerva could have provided with her wisdom.

The rest seem right to the point like with Hippolyta who gained superhuman strength from exposure of some type of magical energy that allowed her to become the second Wonder Woman, but they may want to look into Selena to see what she would be about.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selene
"Grace" could perhaps be made to mean a possible wrath, power, if Selena ever got angry for example.

It probably should be something like this.

Grace of Selena (awesome power)
Strength of Hippolyta (super strength)
Skill of Ariadne (super stamina)
Fleetness of Zephyrus (super speed and flight)
Beauty of Aurora (nigh-invulnerability)
Wisdom of Minerva (supernatural intuition)

Something to help her live up to her bad girl image that she's getting if she is getting her original source of powers without any help from "big brother" since I read that she shared Captain Marvel's powers of invulnerability, stamina, and courage in the pre-crisis days.

S for Sofia - The Gnostic goddess of Wisdom

H for Hathor - The Egyptian Sky-goddess of Joy & the finest qualities of womanhood, also the protectress of women

A for Akonadi - The African goddess of Justice

Z for Zoria (or Zarya) - The Slavic goddess of Sunrise (the Dawn) & Beauty

A for Artemis - The Greek goddess of the Hunt, the Moon.

M for Morrigan - The Irish goddess of War


Fill in the attributes for which powers these goddesses grant her, such as Artemis granting her swiftness for the hunt, etc.
