Would cells from Lilith work better than cells from Adam?

Probably not. Lilith cells don't seem to give you crazy bullshit powers.

It would still be a better spin-off than the Shinji Ikari Project

Everything is a better spinoff than SIRP. First Impression on SEGA Saturn is better. Neon Genesis Evangelion 64 is better. Even Angelic Days is ever so slightly better, seeing as how, even though it's pretty much exactly the same thing, came before it, and has just that tiny bit more of originality.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

Beyond the fact that mankind can't really do this, since the Evangelions are effectively the closest they can make to one?

Having more than one Seed of Life on the planet is what makes Third Impact possible. Adding more SoLs would make things worse, not better.

:???:

(A) Gehirn imprisoned Adam, to the point of installing restraints that served as a test run for the kind of technology that would be used on the Evas later.
(B) The embryo that is all that appreciably remains of Adam's body in the present day is encased in a prison of Bakelite.
(C) Adam's soul is imprisoned inside a body to which it does not belong, being actively molded by a cabal of old men plotting the genocide of Adam's offspring into something unable and unwilling to act in anyone's interest but the Lilin's own.

That's actually what I've wondered about for the longest time. Rei III and Kaworu were supposedly the strongest ATFs ever registered by the MAGI, and clearly, NERV could at least mass produce Rei. And since the Angels are only ever threats because of their own ATFs, I don't know why they couldn't just send out Rei III or Kaworu and have one of them shitstomp all the Angels.

AT Fields are the product of the soul, which NERV can't artificially produce in any way. And both Rei and Kaworu were top secrets of their respective handlers for their own personal ambitions. If SEELE knew about Rei, for example, they'd probably have her and Gendo killed.

Wow. That reply makes me love this show even more than I already do. Even when their entire race is seconds away from being genocided by giant aliens, humanity is still holding trump cards up their sleeves because of "personal ambitions". I'm not being sarcastic at all--this honestly reaffirms what I've always believed about our species, lmao.

Why didn't anyone, like say the united states, bomb Japan a second time or kill gendo if they did find out?
