Mari Illustrious Makinami. She used to think she knew her family history. Only to learn that neither her history or herself were so ordinary, after all...

Another in the ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' series by [[ orionpax09]], ''[[ Superwomen of Eva: American Dream]]'' stars Mari Illustrious Makinami, newly introduced in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', as ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

After learning she's a descendent of a famous American hero, Mari undergoes treatment to become a super soldier, allying with SHIELD to take the fight to the Angels and see what Nerv is up to.

Currently under construction. Please add tropes as you see them!

!!This ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' story contains examples of the following:

* AmazonianBeauty: A big part of this Mari's MsFanservice package.
* AMinorKidroduction: The prologue and first chapter proper happen with a younger Mari being told she's ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's great-granddaughter and then put through Project Rebirth. By the time the story catches up with ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' canon "present," Mari has trained for some time for her role as the Captain.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Mari has a battlesuit fitted with various weapons, gear, and stealth systems that can make her invisible.
* CoolPlane: Mari's ship, the [[TitleDrop American Dream]], certainly qualifies. It has adamantium armor, is fully amphibious, and is equipped with a wide variety of weapons, including two {{BFG}}s capable of delivering a lot of damage to [[{{Kaiju}} Ang]][[TheJuggernaut els]].
* EatMe: Mari plans to defeat the 6th Angel this way.
* EpicFail: Mari's first attempt at the shield toss... does not go well.
* GenkiGirl: Mari, with a nice dose of BoisterousBruiser. [[BewareTheSillyOnes When she stops acting genki... look out]].
* IAteWhat: Mari has some [[TastesLikeFeet Meals Ready to Eat]] over on the "American Dream". One {{Omake}} showcases a possible scene where some SHIELD maintenance personnel say they loaded up [=MREs=] [[UpToEleven that were expired by the time of Second Impact]] on the Dream's galley as payback for Mari kicking their asses during her training.
* InstantExpert: Played straight with Mari's ability to learn fighting skills, subverted with her complete failure at throwing her shield.
* LegacyCharacter: Mari is chosen by SHIELD to take on great grandfather's role as Captain America.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: The reason for some of her canonical eccentricity, fic-wise.
* PapaWolf: Mari's father... well, at least he ''tries'', but the poor guy knows he's completely in over his head from the moment SHIELD knocks on his door.
* PatchworkFic: Aside from [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Mari Makinami]] being part of a timeline closest to the TV series canon (at least for now), the CaptainAmerica mythos presented so far comes from all over the place, [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger mostly so far from]] the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse (with appearances of characters like Phil Coulson (and later [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD the rest of his team]]) and [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Betty Ross]] being part of the new Project Rebirth). [[spoiler:Except for ComicBook/NickFury being his comic book version. This one is [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller in an]] {{Omake}}, and it turns out to be one of Fury's {{berserk button}}s.]]
* PermissionToSpeakFreely: After her first mission goes badly, Mari asks this of Dugan. When Dugan grants her permission, Mari decks him.
-->'''Dugan''': "You know, lass... generally speaking... people usually speak freely... with their mouths..."
-->'''Mari''': "Yeah, but haven't you heard, Major Dum Dum? Actions speak louder than words!"
* PowerCopying: The Rebirth process lets Mari master any physical skill her body is capable of doing, simply by watching it once.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Mari does this to the 6th Angel by ramming its core with the American Dream.
* Really700YearsOld: Dum Dum? The same one that fought [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger alongside Steve Rogers back in]] WorldWarII. He (and apparently Fury) were given a SuperSerum variant to slow down significantly (if not stop) their aging.
* RightHandVersusLeftHand: One of Mari's problems lies in the fact she's working with SHIELD, who are [[AntiHero not above]] [[IDidWhatIHadToDo making some moral sacrifices]] to save the world, and is run by ComicBook/NickFury, who doesn't likes Mari being Captain America and sees her as [[LeeroyJenkins a risky]], [[BloodKnight battle-happy]] [[CowboyCop loose cannon]] unworthy of the name, and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech he makes it well-known]] to her. Mari ''is'' a battle-happy loose cannon, but she is nevertheless [[TheHero trying to save people]], so she has decided to [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight show Fury where to stick it]] through any action she can take.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not explicitly mentioned, but implied to be Mari's case (Peggy Carter married James Falsworth on this timeline). An {{Omake}} has Mari pointing it out and having fun with it, being asked to be called "Dame" to everybody's annoyance.
* ShoutOut:
** The newest chapter's {{Omake}} has the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' barging into the ApocalypseCult's attempt to sacrifice Mari by copying the [[TropeNamer trope-naming]] "BigDamnHeroes" scene of ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. [[AnimatedActors Just a little something non-official to welcome the AOS cast to the show]].
* SomeoneToRememberHimBy: [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger How]] [[AlternateUniverse exactly]] [[ForWantOfANail Mari]] came to be.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:As of the time of the newest chapter, various members of Team Coulson (Triplett most visibly)]].
* SuperPoweredAlterEgo / GrowingMusclesSequence: Mari's version of the ComicBook/CaptainAmerica SuperSoldier Serum provides her with a "stealth mode" where she can change her appearance to be less of an AmazonianBeauty. WordOfGod is that this is an explicit ShoutOut to ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''.
* SuperSoldier: Mari. Obviously.
* SuperSerum: Duh. An {{Omake}} has an upstart scientist giving her the ''wrong'' serum and [[GoneHorriblyWrong turning her]] into ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' film's version of the Abomination instead. [[HereWeGoAgain To the lamentation of Betty Ross]].
* TheMentor: SHIELD's Dum Dum Dugan is put in charge of training Mari. Phil Coulson provides some help as well.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: After her first mission goes bad, Mari calls ComicBook/NickFury out for [[spoiler: disabling the American Dream's weapons when he knows an Angel will attack the Pacific Fleet.]] Fury's response is to give her a scathing one of these.
-->'''Fury''': "You want to know why I [[spoiler: didn't warn you about the Angel, why I ordered your weapons disabled?]] That's simple. Because I know just the kind of person you are; a hyperactive adrenaline junkie who can't be bothered to think before jumping into a situation and making it worse!"
-->'''Mari''': (shocked silent).
-->'''Fury''': "When I [[spoiler: found out about the Angel, I had your weapons pulled]] because I thought that even an idiot like you would be smart enough to back down from a situation like that. But it's obvious that I overestimated your intelligence. You know, when I was ordered to recruit you to spy on NERV, I didn't like it. And when I started getting Dugan's reports on his attempts to get you trained, I liked it a whole lot less. You've been treating this whole thing like a game right from day one. You have no discipline, no respect for authority, and if it weren't for the fact that you were our only chance of getting inside of NERV Central, I'd have thrown you out of here personally."
-->Fury pauses to study Mari's battle suit.
-->'''Fury''': "And hell would have frozen over long before I'd have ever given you that!"
-->'''Mari''': "Wha...?"
-->'''Fury''': "I knew your great-grandfather, girl. I fought alongside of him. And I owe him my life more times than I can even begin to tell you."
-->'''Mari''': "Really. You must be a lot older than you look."
-->'''Fury''': "Which is why I fought like hell when the Council decided that they wanted a new Captain America. That title belongs to just one man, and his name was Steven Rogers. Not any of the wannabes they brought in to try and take his place. And certainly not some arrogant little tramp that we have to put up with just because she happens to be his great-granddaughter."
* ToughActToFollow: InUniverse, [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger the previous]] CaptainAmerica. ComicBook/NickFury uses it as a cornerstone of his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech towards Mari.
