When the story was collected into a trade paperback in 1991, Mark Gruenwald decided to add a four-page epilogue, written by himself and drawn by Tom Morgan, of the funeral of Michael and Carina, where the Avengers make sure we know that, no, it was definitely right of them to do what they did and that Korvac was definitely the bad guy...
Hilarious. The epilogue has been left out of future reprintings.
Thanks for the suggestion, Fraser!
