Fanfic / Superwomen of Eva

Go To

The Superwomen of Eva series is an ongoing Fanfic project by Mike313, OrionPax09, and several other authors that crosses over Neon Genesis Evangelion with either Marvel Comics or DC Comics. Formed in response to a glut of fics that gave Eva's leading boy, Shinji Ikari, superpowers, the SoE stories seek to do the same for the women of Eva — hence the name. As such, each story is a Fusion Fic that focuses on one of the female Evangelion characters getting the powers of a known superhero (with two exceptions) and can largely be divided into two series based on which universe is being fused. In addition, there is the Superwomen Of Eva Alterverse, which is different enough to deserve a separate mention, and a few other Follow the Leader false starts which are not listed here.

  • Superwomen of Eva is mostly written by OrionPax09 and focuses on the Evangelion girls gaining the powers of Marvel superheroes and superheroines (plus the two exceptions noted above). As the name suggests, this is the original SoE series, itself starting with Superwomen of Eva: Emerald Fury. It contains 14 different stories (and one sequel) by four different authors.
  • Superwomen of Eva 2 is mostly written by Mike313 and focuses on the Evangelion girls gaining the powers of DC superheroes and superheroines. It is the second SoE 'verse to be formed and was originally started by Mike313 with Superwomen of Eva 2: Emerald Courage on the basis that he simply preferred DC Comics. It has 13 stories, eleven by Mike313 and two others by different authors.
  • The Superwomen Of Eva Alterverse is written by Archdruid-Sephiroth and takes a completely different approach, starting five years after a failed Third Impact and written as a single continuity, consisting of three stories: Duality, Fringe, and Doom. Like the original Superwomen of Eva series, it is a crossover with the Marvel Universe.
  • Superwomen of Eva: Legacies is written by Cody Fett and Cyclone. As the name suggests, every Eva girl ends up being a legacy character to a deceased or retired hero of the DC Universe. It also provides a twist in all of the stories being part of a Shared Universe, with the events of one story influencing the rest (and various scenes revisited through different viewpoints).
  • Superwomen of Eva Tribute is helmed by Author0fntent and, as the name implies, is an ongoing 'tribute' to both the original Superwomen of EVA and Superwomen of EVA 2, with each entry in the series taking place in tangent variations of both universes of stories (with one exception). Unlike those mostly-disparate stories, like Legacies, Tribute posits more interconnectedness among the characters and their stories. The majority of Tribute is anchored by fan art with minor amounts of prose, and features the addition of more DC and Marvel characters, both well-known and obscure. The major Evangelion elements of this are the inclusion of other extracanonical female characters from other Evangelion continuities, namely Nene Matsukaze (from the visual novel Neon Genesis Evangelion Gaiden Vol. 2 ~ Feast of Dolls); Dr. Hitomi Kaga (from the video game The Secret of the Evangelion); Aoi Mogami, Satsuki Ooi, and Kaede Agano (the bridge bunny trio from the video game and manga series The Shinji Ikari Raising Project); and Kotone Suzunami and Hitomi Amagi (from the mobile game Evangelion Battlefields).

With the exceptions of Superwomen of Eva: Codename XJ9, Superwomen of Eva 2: Soaring High, SOE Alterverse: Doom, the Superwomen of Eva Legacies series, and Superwomen of EVA Tribute, the stories can be found here, while their trope pages are linked below. Obviously, they are still under construction.

  • Superwomen of Eva Tribute: The (Un)Official Handbook of Who's Who — the main 'series' within Tribute, done in the vein of classic 'biography' comics such as [['s_Who_in_the_DC_Universe Who's Who in the DC Universe]] and The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. The entries in the series are comprised of fan art (whether done by the author themselves or through pieces commissioned by them) accompanied by prose detailing the character's background and how they fit in the overall Superwomen of Eva narrative environs (or the tangent thereof). Inspired by the crossovers found in the omakes of both the Superwomen of Eva and Superwomen of Eva 2 stories, the DC/Marvel characters featured are either visually based on certain characters from other anime/manga, or are actual characters from other anime/manga given a DC/Marvel character's mantle and/or powerset.
  • Superwomen of Eva: Earth's Mightiest, United — the first full-on long-form story in Tribute, in which the Marvel-based superwomen (along with their allies) band together to deal with the arrival of Galactus and his heralds, eventually leading to them forming the Avengers. Done in tribute to OrionPax09's announced but never written "Heroes United" story, though with different narrative liberties taken compared to their stories. Features the appearance of characters from other Gainax/Khara anime franchises, such as Gunbuster's Noriko Takaya (as Quasar), Gurren Lagann's Yoko Littner (as Domino), FLCL's Haruko Haruhara (as Dazzler), and the title heroine of Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (as the new Sub-Mariner).
    • Has a one-shot follow-up titled Superwomen of Eva Tribute: All Joking Aside, in which Sylene (the daughter of Loki) uses a spell to make herself invisible so she can pull all sorts of pranks on the Avengers. Based on Bill Morrison's story "The Roots of All Evil" from 2002's Marvel Double-Shot #2.
  • Superwomen of Eva Tribute: Shades of Saturday Mornings Past — A script-styled two-shot that puts the superwomen in parodies of the opening title sequences of two classic animated superhero TV shows. Part one spoofs Super Friends, specifically the Challenge of the Super Friends incarnation; while part two riffs on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, with Spider-Woman/Ritsuko standing in for Spider-Man and She-Hulk/Misato and Maya/Ms. Fantastic replacing Iceman and Firestar.
