    Well Eros was a tertiary character at best and his run with the Avengers was not that memorable so yeah some development for him would be nice.

    THE END mini series and all other THE END stories were alternate timelines that didn't affect the main MU but it did give Starlin a chance to create the "starlin-verse" where his subsequent Thanos/warlock stories would occur.

um...I don't think that's true. At least not officially.

There was a timeline reset in The End but I don't think it was officially implied in print that starting with The End every time Starlin wrote Thanos it was an alternate timeline. Starlin just sort of implies in interviews that he doesn't pay attention to what other writers do with the character. I don't think an official demarcation point exists...The Infinity Revelation for example referenced non Starlin related Thanos stories. And as recently as Thanos's Infinity Finale we were debating whether that affected 616 continuity or not.

    But as I recall he has clashed with editorial before over things such as the direction with Thanos and left as a result but time passes, Editor in Chief changes and money talks.

    Now if Starlin would do a resurrection of Mar-Vell story before he leaves Marvel.....

At this point I wish they would resurrect Mar-Vell so I wouldn't have to hear about it any more. They've dangled that carrot in front of people so often they might as well follow through. If Bucky and Ben Reilly can come back there's no reason to keep Mar-Vell dead. I don't think I personally would enjoy the story but maybe the resurrection will give his fans a much needed catharsis. Maybe they can put Carol back in the black costume...
