This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   When Laurie arrives on Mars she can't breath, and Jon points at her throat allowing her to breath. He creates a force field around her where she can breath.
   Adrian brings his three assistants to the vivarium to toast their accomplishments. He poisons them and then opens the glass so their bodies are frozen. He has several workers with him. He poisons them, and then leaves as the reactor built by Dr. Manhattan vaporizes them.
   Doug Roth talks to Janey Slater at his office before Dr. Manhattan is interviewed on TV. He goes there and tells him about it. Dr. Manhattan gets upset when everyone is questioning him. He teleports everyone away from him. He later goes to his apartment and finds someone painting a Radiation Warning on is door. He teleports himself to Arizona where he looks at an old picture of himself and Janey, then to Mars. While he is questioning Dr. Manhattan on TV, he brings out Janey Slater to show him how sick she is. The reports start questioning him and he teleports himself to Mars.
   Dan and Laurie take Archie through the tunnel and then out through the roof of the warehouse. Laurie spots the fire from the air. The ship comes out from under the water. Dan is monitoring the police radio and hears about the fire.
   After Dr. Manhattan leaves the interview and disappears, the government comes to his and Laurie's apartment. They take her and want to question her and give her a cancer scan. This isn't shown.
