I guess he has old notes that will reveal the original plan — to kill her in issue #135? He keeps promising all of our minds will be blown with the major revelations he has coming over the next few days.
Today, he posted this —
“While you assimilate the news of yesterday, today is the turn of a fascinating document that went off the radar when it got published for the first time in the Modern Masters volume focused on Byrne: The NOTES that Byrne took of #137 while speaking at phone with Claremont, and it features the original ending.
This doesn't mean that any of them supplied the ideas, only they know that. Likely Claremont also took similar notes at the another end of the phone while/just after speaking, and he used them to develop and type a plot.
Byrne's notes covered two pages, and they are two sides of the same sheet. You can guess that for the scribbles Byrne drew at the borders while speaking. Ink shows at the another side. Both sides are included in the mag.
It's very interesting to compare the notes with the published comic, because there are minor differences that show again the creative process. Unfortunately, the mag didn't pay enough attention to that.
Sometimes the information is out there, but it's necessary to join the dots.”
