The Infinity Stones are shown throughout the Marvel cinematic universe. But what do you know how powerful these stones are? Here are the basic details you need to know about the Infinity Stones.
No Marvel fan will not recognize the infinity stones. These powerful magical objects could be the savior of Marvel’s universe or its destruction. Thanos’ intention to destroy half of the universe and become the most powerful of all as revenge for being exiled from his home planet prompted his quest to collect the infinity stones. To learn about the Infinity Stones, you need to know the essential facts about Thanos.
The Origin of Infinity Stones
The origin of the infinity stones goes back before the universe began. Before the birth of the universe, six singularities existed. When the Big Bang happened, it formed crystals out of the six singularities and sent six stones into the different parts of the universe.
These powerful stones represent different aspects of the universe: Space, Mind, Reality, Power, Time, and Stone. Throughout the MCU, each stone was discovered, including its ability. Also, the stones were called in different names in each Marvel movie.
The Tesseract, also called the Space Stone, gives the user power over space. The holder of stone may create a portal from one universe to another using its power. The space stone is hidden inside the Tesseract, a blue cube, hence its name.
The stone first made an appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger, where it was used by HYDRA, an evil organization, to power their weapons. However, it was recovered by SHIELD.
#2 Power Stone
The Power Stone was first seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy. The stone can give the user immense energy powerful enough to destroy an entire planet. Star-Lord accidentally discovered the stone. Later on, the Guardians gave the stone to the Nova Corps for safekeeping.
The Reality Stone, otherwise called Aether, bestows the user the power to manipulate matter. In the MCU, two Asgardians gave the Aether and the Space Stone to The Collector, whom the latter handed the stones to Thanos.
#4 Mind Stone
As its name suggests, the Mind Stone grants its user the power to control the mind of others. The stone was first seen in Loki’s scepter in the movie The Avengers.
Later in the MCU, the mind stone appeared on Vision’s forehead. However, when Thanos overtakes the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, he killed Vision and acquired the stone.
#5 Eye of Agomoto
The Time Stone was discovered in the Eye of Agomoto, a pendant in the library of Kamar-Taj. Stephen Strange was the first person to discover the stone.
In the Infinity War, it was shown that Doctor Strange wears the stone. He utilized the stone’s power to look into futures at the end of the Infinity War. Doctor Strange gathered that he has to give up the stone to Thanos for the Avengers to defeat him. He did but disintegrates when Thanos did the ‘snap.’
#6 Soul Stone
Not much has been gathered and shown about the soul stone. However, it was mentioned that it can control others’ souls and create a separate universe where the user can trip souls.
