Actually, Twilight of the Superheroes could still be an Elseworld story. Probably one of the most influential of all time.
Since the plot of Twilight of the Superhero is a clash between the House of Steel (Superman DC) and the House of Thunder (Captain Marvel Fawcett) , it would have to be a joint company Elseworld. And yes, in a world with no Watchman, it would be one of the most influential stories ever.

In 1976 the head of PTVS Negotiations with Leonard Nimoy to reprise his role as Mr. Spock breaks down. Nimoy had issue with Paramount for using his likeness on products and was suing for compensation and Nimoy decided to walk

With Star Trek's fan-favorite character not available the writers had the unenviable task of replacing Spock.

Or, better still, both companies deny him access to the characters, he goes to Epic and Marvel and he does what he did with Watchmen IOTL and just makes a bunch of pastiches. and as a Graphic Novel. As for Watchmen itself. It COULD live on as an Event comic for Charlton.
 
Another miniseries that will not be happening or would be so different from the OTL , that we would not recognize it is "Kingdom Comes" .
With out spoiling the series , It another story that has Characters from DC and Fawcett in important roles.
I think I rather see Twilight then Kingdom Come.
But you might have Alex Ross as the Artist on Twilight of the Superhero.

Outsiders issue 71 Chris Claremont and John Byrne started what fans would dubbed the Phoenix saga (not to be confused with the Dark Phoenix saga) where Dr. Strange's girlfriend/appearance Clea merges with the celestial Phoenix force as an attempt to give her more agency.

while John Stewart's title of Green Lantern/Green Arrow kept its focus on topical issue stories that sadly ended in 78

Steve Gerber in December of 1976, decided he had enough of Ditkos "fascism & censorship of his ideas" having rejected his new take on Captain Marvel, and went to Pacific comics publishing to start his own comic company. In January of 1977 (having in his contract with CBS comics that he owned any creations) took Howard the Duck & Beverly Swieler and started Quack comics with his collaborators Mary Skvenes, Jim Mooney, & Val Mayerrik.
Quack comics first comic was an anthology featuring
  1. Quackineer a Howard the Duck story where Howard & Beverly travel through time where Bev is mistaken for Ann Bonty.
  2. Red Guard based on Gerber's rejected idea of making the Female Avenger a Russian Cosmonaut who is granted superpowers and becomes a flirtatious rivalry with the American hero (obvious parodying of Captain America, & Comando Yank)
  3. Omega the Unknown Based on Gerber's idea to change Captain Marvel Omega is the imaginary friend of young Richie that has come to life and the mystery of how he came to be
  4. From the Bog a blatant re telling of Man-Thing with the names changed & different art
Gerber decided that to stick it to the man and help bring in new talent that he would work without the comics code authority allowing the artist to not be hampered by the limitations of Sex, violence, or political ideology

The little bit of research I've done on Pacific indicates that in 1976-77 they were a mail order comic book distributor and wouldn't publish themselves until 1981. So does this mean Gerber becomes the first comic book publisher for Pacific ITTL?

Kind of Steve Gerber does go to Pacific comics for the Distribution of Quack comics however Quack comics falls by 81 and Gerber publishes Howard the Duck through Pacific comics after that
 
Omega the Unknown Based on Gerber's idea to change Captain Marvel Omega is the imaginary friend of young Richie that has come to life and the mystery of how he came to be
So there's no Omega title, the first six issus are just part of Quack Comics? Also OTL's issue 7 has a different writer while issue 8 s both a difference writer and penciler. Do the stories in those issues still exist ITTL?

Gerber gets to finish his original Omega story.
Quack becomes a studio title after the first issue & the 4 introduction stories get their own comic. unfortunately because he is self publishing they are more obscure than IOTL

That just means a more dedicated fan base and the Howard the Duck isn't lambasted as badly,because it's not as well known among the general population, and it could become a cult classic similar Rocky Horror.
 
That a picture of a Latter Apple model .
The Apple that came out in the 70's did not have a Disk drive.
The early Apples had Tape Drives .
(Please someone tell me that you remember the Tape Drives)
Changed the picture, but I think that the disk drive could of been introduced earlier seeing that Apple is part of Atari in my ATL.
