Coming up with terminology for humans who turn into superhumans using "-thrope"

The thread title explains it all. I'm wondering what latin(or other, I guess lycanthrope is actually Greek-derived) term you could add to "-thrope" to indicate a human who turns into a superhuman(like DC's Captain Marvel, or the Hulk). Metanthrope? Titanthrope(well, I guess that might be someone who could turn giant-sized)? Maybe Hyperthrope?

I may be wrong but as the word "lycanthrope" is derived from "lykos" (wolf) and "anthropos" (human) the word should end with "-anthrope".

However, Metanthrope would probably still be correct.

Pneumanthrope

 

From pneuma, or breath/spirit/soul.

 

It is the term used in Greek martial arts for the concept of Chi.

 

Besides, when said aloud, will sound like "New Man Thrope"

 

Pneuman!
