This episode of STAS has to be an EVA reference. For God’s sake, it’s about a giant monster that absorbs energy and never says a word, but is still confirmed to be alive and basically sentinent??? The whole thing just gave off a really “this guy is an Angel” vibe.
clark why didn’t you get a giant eva powered by your mom’s kryptonian soul and take him out that way
(Superman: The Animated Series : The Prometheon)
That theory is reaching but it’s definitely totally awesome.
