Despite an oath not to interfere, he breaks it when Ultron, wielding the Infinity Stones, poses a threat to the Multiverse. Uatu recruits heroes like Captain Carter, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange, Erik Killmonger, Gamora, Thor, and later Black Widow to form the Guardians of the Multiverse. He first appeared in ‘What If…?’ animated series and later made an appearance in one episode of the ‘I Am Groot’ series of animated shorts.
