I don't know, I just always thought that the four Adams we see in Misato's flashback are only few members of a whole species, so that more Adam visitors may appear later and make the decision about the mankind's fate basing on what happened to their fellows and how they were treated. But this is only my wild guess.

So you're thinking it was like aliens visiting to see if we were ready and then attacking the planet because they found us to be a violent species?

Kinda, but I wouldn't call us "violent species". Barbaric according to the Adams' standards, yes. Perhaps they have strict rules of conduct, when and how to wage war to save the Universe from being pulverized with their means of destruction? And the mankind simply hasn't learned yet that the fire burns, so to say, because we still have to learn what "the fire" is.

So this is what the Adams are doing: they're granting us limited access to their weaponry and wait 'till we learn the lesson, the only possible way. Sure, we can kill ourselves in the process, but if we don't, then maybe we'll be able to complete the rite of initiation and join the whatever community the Adams participate.

And that means FINAL will be for Rebuild the same as DOOM Eternal for DOOM 2016 as much as EoE for NGE like Hell on Earth for the first DOOM.

It was clear from the beginning that Adam and Lilith with Angels and Lilim as their offsprings weren't the only ones of their kind in the whole Universe.

Lilim 'll always be mortally challenged for turning earth into the melting pot of the Universe and only a handful of suffering adolescent warriors stand between heaven and earth.

They Rip and Tear until it is done.

Isn't that obvious ?!  SPOILER: Show

If i remember well (fix my message if wrong , thanks)

Lilith -> Lilins, Lilins = humans, plants, animals, insects etc.

Adam -> Angels, Angels = Angels evas and lilins are fighting.

Lilith and Adam came both not in the same vessel but using two separated devices

Adam came first and Lilith came second

After the rest is history.

Technically Adams have no relation-ship with humans. Only with evas i'd say.

My 50 cents

You are using lore about the arrival of Adam (singular) and Lilith which is proper to NGE but has not been established for Rebuild (which has multiple Adams).

^ Well with any luck those questions will at least be partially answered in Final.

Yes, mybad, i hope to get full answers about those in Final films; and the fact that we get 4 adams is kind of proof rebuild might not be the sequel some theorized years ago.
Now we get 4 Adams but still One Lilith even tough she seems different a bit from the NGE lilith
