The JLA/Avengers deluxe set had all the remaining art from the 80s Avengers/JLA It was about 15 pages, uninked and uncolored. Beautiful stuff, but it only got through the first chapter and a half... all that was ever done as I recall.

Mr. Byrne's FF without powers would seem to me to be, effectively, the Challengers of the Unknown (ref. Amalgam's "Challengers of the Fantastic.") That's not a complaint; I would LOVE to see Mr. Byrne's take on the Death Cheaters!
It seemed to me that IDW's "Byrne Super-verse", with Trio and Helix, had many more stories to tell, and I would have loved to see those.
I'd've loved to see more of Danger Unlimited. Maybe they were set in that prior BS-v... there were several super heroes in DU (including the Torch of Liberty, whom I would enjoy seeing more of as well!)
In general, most of the Byrne books that got cut off - Captain America, X-Men (although Elsewhen whets the appetite!), Fantastic Four, the Hulk, etc.
I really wanted to see the OTHER ending to Crisis on Infinite Earths. I talked to a couple of DC pros who said that if sales and response weren't good on COIE, there was a storyline to revert everything back to "status quo."
Mr. Byrne has noted that he had a storyline to go from "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" to "Man of Steel" organically; not simply a dead stop and restart; but a story that reverted everything naturally. It sounded great!
