2021 NEW & Exclusive: The Watcher Funko Pop!
The new Funko Pop! Marvel: What If…? – The Watcher Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure – Funko Shop Exclusive features the narrator of the What If…? events (available for order at the links below).
He certainly has an impressive set of powers, as demonstrated when he fought the mighty Ultron across the multiverse.
However, he has not yet reached a universal power level, as he needed the help of Doctor Strange and the rest of his team after being unable to defeat Ultron on his own, even with his ability to see the entire multiverse.
Episode 8 of What If…? on Disney +, Marvel Studios’ first animated series, showed that the Watcher could do more than watch.
The episode, titled “What If…Ultron Won?” imagines a timeline where Ultron defeated the Avengers, eradicated all life on Earth, acquired the Infinity Stones to carry his conquest across the universe, and then surprised even the Watcher by becoming aware of the multiverse.
Ultron attacks the Watcher, but the Watcher proves able to hold his own by materializing armor and blasting Ultron with energy. Ultron eventually gets the best of him, but of course, taking on a robot with the power of the Infinity Stones is no easy task.
Exclusive to Funko Shop, The Watcher Funko Pop! is now available for order at the links below.
Uatu, the Watcher who decided to embrace humans, was introduced to the general Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) audience through the Disney+ series What If…?
And, taking advantage of the character’s new exposure, he will star in a one-shot comic in 2022.
Uatu’s one-shot will be part of The Reckoning War event and will show the Watcher shortly after his resurrection.
According to Dan Slott, the screenwriter of the upcoming Marvel saga, The Watcher is one of the critical pieces of the story, as he and his race have witnessed something in the past that has strong connections to this mega-event.
For now, the final title of the one-shot has not yet been determined. However, the story is being called The Trial Of The Watcher internally.
This title refers to a story published in the 1970s of the same name where the Watcher race judged Uatu for his interference in Earthly affairs.
