(Fantastic Four III#544) - When the Fantastic Four arrived at the Watcher's home on the Blue Area of the Moon, they sought information regarding the recent apparent death of the hero, Gravity. After Storm commented that they were aware of the Watchers' gathering of information and asked to view the information, Uatu the Watcher agreed to her request and transported the Fantastic Four into the Cyclopedia Universum, a realm containing all of the stored knowledge of the Watchers. Uatu began to warn them to only "sip" of the information, as the combined knowledge would be too much for the human mind to bear, but the Thing found the information they sought and the Fantastic Four went on their way.

Comments: Created by Dwayne McDuffie, Paul Pelletier and Rick Magyar.

Due to the Cyclopedia Universum's existence as a storage realm for compiled knowledge, it was not shown to contain any inhabitants, other than stored knowledge. The nature of the realm was unclear but the Thing pulled information he sought from the realm, suggesting that it existed as some sort of psychic/astral realm in which knowledged could be accessed mentally. Uatu transported the Fantastic Four there but it was not clear whether he physically teleported them into the realm or if he astrally projected their consciousnesses into the Cyclopedia.
