Never read all of the Korvac quest (Read a lot of it, and know what happened, but not the whole thing.), but I know that when it was released in trade paperback (Or after.), there was an epilogue that was added. I believe that it was written by Mark Gruenwald (Who had a part in the original storyline?), but it had the Avengers debating about Korvac or something. Did anyone read this? I know that Tom Breevort didn't want it included, because he felt that it kind of took the sails out of the storyline. But eventually it was included. The original ending. What was the difference, exactly? Korvac killed himself. But of course he was brought back. I think that they probably should have left him dead, especially since his appearance during the Mark Waid run on Captain America was less than impressive.


Gruenwald's ending is in no way the original ending... he had nothing to do with the original story, near as I can tell, which was all Jim Shooter. It made one tpb of the arc, and has been removed from all subsequent printings. Essentially, it removes the implication that Korvac not only could have succeeded, but in doing so may have improved the universe. By not making Korvac's quest a morally ambiguous one, it totally destroys the actual "was printed" ending of the story... and also completely and utterly ignores the fact that Moondragon intentionally screwed with the Avengers' memories of these events in her grief over Korvac's death. Not that the ending hasn't been devastated by Korvac's subsequent actions, but still...
