|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.
The Watchers were strict about their non-interference.
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.
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.
