This is the second Harlan Ellison issue, and it’s a very interesting one involving time, chess and body-switching.
The Watcher first appeared in the Fantastic Four in his white robes, but for some reason they thought it was better for him to be all blinged out in gold here. And he’s telling someone to commit murder to save the timeline.
There’s also this great way he explains the meaning of time, as a tree.
