I think to really sell your premise and make the story work, you should solidify in some way how exactly your version of the post Ep. 24 play out. Let's say that Misato apparently gets shot and "dies" but maybe doesn't get blown up...Thus, her weird healing factor (I'm assuming something like this is involved due to her exposure at 2nd Impact?) is at play here and then Shinji goes kicks ass during the MPE fight assuming she died...
Then a version of Instrumentality still plays out, then people come back and a new sequence of events happens several years later?
So, this story is about a potential 4th impact then?
Interesting. I like the idea of making Misato the main character and this sort of rouge agent bad ass.
Another thing, Mari and Mana are new pilots, but are there new angels as well?
Also, I like "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Versus"
"Versus" could also be the name of the Resistance...
Interesting ideas. I was thinking something more along the lines of her pulling out a grenade then turning into LCL after sending Shinji off in the elevator. Her abilities triggering before instrumentality sounds interesting. As for what happened for her to disappear, I would probably say that she came back in a different place and just never went back. There probably won't be new angels, rather clones of Angels, but I could consider the former.
In hindsight, I think I will explore Instrumentality, for Misato at least.
I think Versus could work for name of the resistance.
