Thanos and the Infinity Stones were the main factor of Marvel’s plot in Avengers: Infinity War. These stones have been revealed from the beginning of the first Thor movie to the end of Phase 3. They are the primary factor that controls every event in the MCU while lies in the shadows. And our main villain – Thanos wanted to collect them all for an obvious reason: fix the universe and rule it. The end of Infinity War and all of Endgame showed us the true extent of that power.
The Infinity Stones, also known as the Six Singularities, were six enormously powerful gem-like objects formed by the Big Bang and linked to various parts of the cosmos. Only creatures of enormous power, like Celestials and the Mad Titan Thanos, are capable of directly wielding the Stones. Lesser creatures would suffer severe repercussions. What are the properties of each stone you might wonder? Where do they come from, what immense power can they hold in such a small object? Let’s find out.
#1 Power Stone
The Power Stone bestows upon its holder an immense amount of energy that could destroy an entire planet. It was shown to the guardian of the galaxy that Eson the Searcher used the stone to wipe out a whole civilization, and later Thor reveal that Thanos decimated Xandar Empire with it.
#2 Time Stone
The user of the Time Stone has complete power over the past, present, and future. Its most basic ability allows the user to see possible futures and to pause and rewind time.
#3 Mind Stone
The Mind Stone enables the user to exert power over other people’s thoughts. In 2012’s The Avengers, we first glimpse it as a blue ball in Loki’s sceptre. Loki has complete power over whomever he touches with the sceptre.
#4 Space Stone
The Space Stone, being the Infinity Stone that symbolizes and rules space, gives the user complete dominion over space. It’s mostly employed to open portals to other places, but it may also be utilized to travel across dimensions.
#5 Soul Stone
The Soul Stone can alter the soul or the core that makes up a life form, as well as revive and create the spiritual representations of those who have died. In order to get this stone, you must scarify someone you love the most, a soul for a soul.
#6 Reality Stone
The Reality Stone has so immense power that it can alter reality on a global scale. The entire cosmos would have been turned to dark matter if Malekith had been successful in his attempts to exploit the stone’s power. The user’s creativity is the sole limit to the Reality Stone.
