|Notes||Original story and plot by Ellison, adaptation and script by Thomas. |
"Five Dooms to Save Tomorrow!" was originally written by Ellison as a synopsis for a Hawkman story. When Julius Schwartz at DC chose not to buy it, it was printed in the fanzine Comic Art #7, which is where Thomas saw it. Thomas then contacted Ellison to buy the story for Marvel.
Ellison had no input after Thomas bought the story. All changes necessary to transform the story from a Hawkman tale set in the DC universe to an Avengers story were done by Thomas.
