Original Sin #0, written by Mark Waid with art from Jim Cheung, Paco Medina and a bevy of inkers, opens up the previously unknown origin of Uatu, the Watcher. Waid uses Sam Alexander, the current Nova, as the point of view character. Still relatively new to the cosmic universe, Sam pays a visit to The Watcher’s moon base in hopes of learning more about his mission and his motivation for being the universe’s biggest voyeur. Waid delivers a clean, comprehensive look at Uatu’s own “original sin” that adds an undeniably heart-string-tugging human element to the entire story. There’s also a pretty big revelation about the character as we learn he’s watching a lot more than we ever imagined. As far as introductory issues go, this was nearly perfect.
