Comic Theme Time Month – Most Egregious Interference by the Watcher
All December long, I will be doing daily installments of Comic Theme Time. Comic Theme Time is a twist on the idea of a “Top Five” list. Instead of me stating a topic and then listing my top five choices in that topic, I’m giving you the topic and letting you go wild with examples that you think fit the theme.
Today’s topic is “What do you think was the most egregious example of Uatu the Watcher “I can’t interfere!”) interfering with events?”
Read on to see what I’m looking for specifically, along with some examples to get you started…
Uatu’s race is based on the idea of just monitoring universes, but not interfering. Here, Uatu describes their function in his first appearance in Fantastic Four #13…
However, a page earlier, in his very first appearance on the page of a comic book, what does the Watcher do?
And it’s been that way ever since. “I cannot interfere! However, I could let you do this (and “this” is always some form of interference).”
So name what you think have been Uatu’s most egregious instances of interference over the years!
