Misato always wished that there was some way she could fight the Angels herself, instead of through the children. She had no idea that the power would practically fall into her lap, or that it would come in the form of a little green ring.Superwomen of Eva 2: Emerald Courage
is a Superwomen of Eva
story in which a dying Abin Sur, Green Lantern
of Sector 2184, bestows his Power Ring
to one Misato Katsuragi while she's on her way home after the destruction of Sandalphon.
Currently under construction. Please add tropes as you see them!
This Superwomen of Eva 2 story contains examples of the following:
- The Alcoholic: Misato drops to this at one point, but she gets better.
- Amazonian Beauty: Oddly enough, done explicitly, as Misato uses the ring's powers to buff up her muscles in addition to adding a mask and changing her hair color to maintain her Secret Identity.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: Misato and Wonder Girl against Legion.
- Badass Creed: We all know what it is.
- Badass in Distress: Happens to Rei Ayanami at the climax, setting up the Final Battle.
- Battle in the Center of the Mind: Wonder Girl has one with Legion.
- Big Damn Heroes: During the Final Battle, Shinji brings Misato's power battery and distracts Gendo, giving her a chance to recharge her power ring.
- Broad Strokes: Something from the Sinestro Corps War happened, what with the very existence of the Sinestro Corps before Abin Sur's death.
- Christmas Cake: Misato gets a little depressed and a little Shotacon about it.
- City of Adventure: Tokyo-3 already has an active population of superwomen by the time Misato gets her Green Lantern Ring, including Power Girl and Wonder Girl.
- Cult: Misato's first outing as Green Lantern involves stopping one of these from performing a Human Sacrifice, though they don't appear to be organized enough to be a proper Religion of Evil, and unlike the Light of the Divine found in other Superwomen of Eva stories, they definitely aren't an Apocalypse Cult.
- Determinator: You don't get to join the Corps without being one.
- Fight Off the Kryptonite: Misato manages this during the Final Battle.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Green Lantern defeats her first Angel, Matarael, by redirecting its own acid back toward it.
- Imagination Based Superpower: Part of the Green Lantern package.
- Ironic Echo Cut: When Nerv loses power, we get the following lines:
Misato: "Guess I'm stuck here until Ritsuko manages to fix whatever it is she broke." *end scene*
Ritsuko: *next scene* "Hey, it's not my fault."
- Know When to Fold 'Em: Kaji does, when given the odds when Sahaquiel shows up. Too bad his Genre Blindness meant he didn't realize they all had Plot Armor.
- The Lad-ette: Misato, of course.
- Man of Kryptonite: Legion, before being taken over by our much-hated Lilliputian Invader, was a suit of Powered Armor made in secret by Nerv with the objective to kill the superwomen. Bearing in mind, the only Kryptonite Factor it really has is being painted yellow and loading yellow ammunition (given the time frame with respect to its Broad Strokes treatment of the events of Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton, it's unlikely it has actual kryptonite, though there's no confirmation either way). Against Wonder Girl, all it has is lots and lots of big friggin' guns. Which it uses with gusto.
- Mugging the Monster: Misato and Shinji's mini-golfing trip is interrupted by armed robbers.
- Mundane Utility: When Kaji attempts to catch the elevator Misato is on, she uses her power ring to slam the doors in his face.
- The Power of Love: What pulls Misato back from the brink of despair during the Final Battle.
- Pragmatic Adaptation: The backstory of Legion has been completely rewritten to fit the setting from its canon counterpart from the Origins Episode Emerald Dawn. It's still a hive mind in a powerful yellow robot body, though.
- Ring of Power: Misato's Green Lantern Ring, naturally.
- Secret Identity: In a moment of Genre Savvy, Misato realizes she needs one, as Gendo would brook no outside interference in the war against the Angels.
- Stripperiffic: Less Misato's Green Lantern outfit and more what she chooses to wear when mini-golfing with Shinji.
- Superman Stays Out of Gotham: More like "Power Girl is (in)conveniently in Berlin."
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Downplayed. Green Lantern doesn't kill humans, but she rarely faces human enemies to begin with, and no emphasis is placed on this.
- Weak, but Skilled: A variant in the Final Battle. Despite the disadvantage of wielding a power ring that cannot affect anything yellow against a yellow power ring, Misato's greater experience with it trumps the inherent disadvantage.
- Weaksauce Weakness: The color yellow. Which raises all sorts of questions about what parts of the Sinestro Corps War actually happened.
- Wolverine Publicity: Power Girl makes a sudden appearance out of left field and battles and ultimately kills Amon Sur of the Sinestro Corps while Misato's at the park, without her ring and completely unaware of what's going on. She also appears in a few other small scenes completely disconnected from the main plot in reference to events in her own story, but never makes another truly plot relevant appearance again (beyond, that is, purely as an Eva pilot). Wonder Girl's appearance could also be considered this, but it's much more a Back-to-Back Badasses moment (see above).
