Yes! I was so pleased when the artists drawing Oracle over in DC comics obviously started talking with (or at least googling) wheelchair users, because her chairs suddenly became appropriate for someone with her level of mobility.

Does the character have a particular attachment to her chair in canon? If not, I think you should either draw a more appropriate manual chair for her canon-specified needs or stick with the canon-specified inability to push herself and go for a power chair. I think this is a characterisation decision that is just as relevant as changes to make a superhero's costume more practical and useful, or culturally appropriate.
