Code of Non-Interference
Real Name Code of Non-Interference

The Code of Non-Interference is a protocol among the Watchers. It states that they will not interfere in the natural course of other species.

History

The Watchers were strict about their non-interference.

Watchers Spray Planet

At one point, a plague struck the Arad Nebula destroying all of their food. The Watchers used the knowledge collected in the Universal Library to create a cure. They sprayed the planets curing the disease, thus breaking their vow. Uatu engineered the cure to backfire against his fellow Watchers and turn them into Virals.

Uatu Addresses Zenn-La

Uatu would often break the vow in order to warn people about the impending arrival of Galactus. He did this for the Horseshoe Nebula, Zenn-La, and Earth.

Background

The code is similar to the Prime Directive in the Star Trek franchise.

In the Comics

The code came after a well-meaning attempt to help a civilization that resulted in the species destroying itself.

Uatu has broken the code over four-hundred times.
