Members Uatu
Former Members Unnamed Others

The Watchers were a race of beings who observed others and collected knowledge. Their home planet was turned into an enormous database called the Universal Library.


Long ago, a part of the galaxy suffered a terrible plague that wiped out their food. The Watchers used their knowledge to develop a cure. Uatu used the virus to then turn all other Watchers into Virals leaving himself completely immune. He would use the beacons to send others to the Universal Library so the Virals could attain new and updated knowledge.

Uatu became interested in the actions of Galactus. He would often warn planets of their impending doom so that the people could survive, like Zenn-La and Earth.

He joined Eternity and Infinity in helping Silver Surfer to stop Thanos from destroying the universe.


The background depicted in Silver Surfer is vastly different than the comics.

In the Comics

Uatu's father gave technology to a young civilization. When they returned they found that the civilization had developed nuclear weapons and wiped themselves out. This is why they force themselves never to interfere with other civilizations.

Uatu is not the last remaining Watcher. In fact, he is often punished by the others for interfering with Earth's events.
