History: (Fantastic Four I#48) - As the Silver Surfer approached Earth while seeking a new planet for his master Galactus to feed upon, Uatu the Watcher used his Matter Mobilizer to create an image of the sky being on fire to disguise the planet from the Surfer, but the fiery skies made the people on Earth panic. Uatu changed the image to that of debris clouding up the sky, and revealed what he was doing to Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl, but the Silver Surfer was able to penetrate the debris field, unmasking Uatu's deception.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott.
