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 ''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 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.
* SomeoneToRememberHimBy: [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger How]] [[AlternateUniverse exactly]] [[ForWantOfANail Mari]] came to be.
* 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.
* ToughActToFollow: InUniverse, [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger the previous]] CaptainAmerica. ComicBook/NickFury uses it as a cornerstone of his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech towards Mari.
