Normally female ... or Wesley Crusher :)

The term for the male version is Marty Stu, a play on Mary Sue.

Most commonly, yes, but it's not as definitive as Mary Sue - first, sometimes even male is called Mary Sue, second, there are less common alternatives.

Note however that pre-reset Pandora specifically can't really be Mary Sue because she's not "full-time" character. Any complain about her power would lead in direction of labeling her Deus-ex-machina, not Mary Sue. Note that I don't think she IS one - she was established quite well in advance and while she never before used this much power, the possibility was foreshadowed quite obviously at least in hindsight if not directly - but she's still much closer to that than to Mary Sue.

She has serious flaws as well, and vulnerabilities.

Yes, but that only makes her less Mary Sue ; those are irrelevant to her Deus-ex-machina-ness.
