This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   Jon goes to work at the Gila Flat's research facility and is introduced to Wally Weaver, who is an assistant. Jon says that Wally was his friend from college.
   Veidt is talking to his secretary on his way to some meetings about his toy line. He is walking when a gunman approaches and kills his secretary. Veidt knocks him down and he dies on a poison capsule. He is having a discussion with Lee Iaccoca and several other leaders of big oil companies. He tells them he will make them obsolete. The elevator opens and the gunman shoots his secretary in the leg, then kills one of the men before shooting Iaccoca in the head.
   Laurie goes to visit her mother in the rest home in California. She enters her room and has flowers for her. She tells her that Jon teleported her there and she got sick in the bathroom. She then smokes a pipe and her mother coughs. We see Laurie teleport directly into her mother's room and she pukes in the bathroom. She has no flowers. Laurie doesn't smoke, but her mother is drinking a margarita.
   The cops investigating the comedian's death claim that Edward Blake was doing diplomatic work overseas. He is seen in a picture shaking hands with Vice President Gerald Ford. They suggest that Blake might have been a spook or black ops for the government. He is shaking hands with President Nixon in the picture.
   Dan tries to access Adrian's computer and when it asks for a password he first tries Ramses. It doesn't work, so he tries Ramses II and it does. He first tries Ozymandias followed by Pharaohs. He sees a book about Ramses II and tries that successfully.
