Forget Santa. This is the guy who watches everything. Introduced in Fantastic Four #13 (1963) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Watchers are a race of powerful beings that have tasked themselves with recording everything that happens in the universe. After a race used their technology to destroy themselves, the Watcher made a vow of no interference. Each is assigned to a galaxy or planet and the one assigned to Earth and the most famous member is Uatu. Uatu lives in the Blue Area of the Moon, an area on the moon with a breathable atmosphere. Uatu would watch the planet for centuries and began to fall in love with humans and its various timelines.

He would remain hidden for millennia until the F4 arrived on the moon and combated the Red Ghost and his super apes. Uatu would teleport the Red Ghost back to Earth and introduced himself to the F4. While he would try and keep his vow of non-interference, he would break this vow a few times. The most famous is when he warned the F4 that Galactus was coming and tasked them with stopping him. He would continue to interfere and was eventually put on trial by his race. After he promised never to interfere again, he was released to observe Earth again. He would eventually be killed by Nick Fury who stole his ones of his eyes leading to the Original Sin arc. Nick Fury was punished by being transformed into the Unseen and tasked to watch Earth instead of Uatu. Uatu would eventually return and began his absorbing of Earth.

Uatu is a character that has been requested by fans for years. Most have been using the Marvel Select version of the Uatu.
