Oh, you want a _Muslim_ female character.
Here you go: the current "Ms Marvel."
In that outfit she's a Muslim like I'm an Episcopalian. Might have
been born into it and gone through the rituals at an early age, but
she doesn't walk the walk.
Her face is covered, where's the problem?
The Green Lantern discussed is:
Her "origin" usually includes (1) being traumatised by
escaping one or more criminals in an incident where
several female friends were killed, then (2) finding a
magic ring, which isn't an ideal model of empowerment.
Especially the being murdered. Her current or only
comics origin involved the ring possessed by the evil
spirit Volthoom that was used by "bad mirror universe
Justice League" member Power Ring of the Crime Syndicate
of recently devastated Earth-3. Actually, Volthoom was
in charge. The Volthoom ring was destroyed and she got
a proper Green Lantern one.
Other versions of her don't have the Volthoom stuff
and may softpedal, um, her friends being murdered.
By which I mean, for instance, her getting a ring in time
to punish the murderer. Or not including the murders at
all. In what I take as the original story, the murders
and the magic ring are completely separate incidents at
different times in her life. And at the same time,
"women in refrigerators" is her origin story.
