It’s no secret by now that Thanos need those Infinity Stones. I guess all of you’ll have seen the Avengers: Age of Ultron by now, if you haven’t — it’s fine you can still read this.
Last week I watched Ant-Man and I was waiting for Thanos to show up in the post credit scene but then I was instead amused by that weird scene. BTW Ant-Man was surprisingly good movie, not that Marvel doesn’t know the formula it’s just that it didn’t had that much of an appeal.
Anyways coming back, Thanos as we know wants to wipe the entire life in the universe because he wants to court Death, seriously he in love with the female personification of Death. Well it’s complicated.
Fun Fact: Marvel fans have noticed that the precious infinity stones are manifesting in objects that spell out the name of Thanos.
T is for Tesseract, the Space Gem. The blue cube which first appeared in Captain America: The First Avengers and then was used to open a portal in space in The Avengers. Basically it contains the Space Stone, which allows the user to cross vast distances of space through wormholes.
H is yet to be known in the cinematic universe.
A is for Aether from Thor: The Dark World. It is commonly believed to be the Reality Gem, it has the has the power to alter reality.
N is also not known in the cinematic universe. I mean we know that it’s either going to be a fancy name for either Time or Soul Stone. Time Stone does exactly what you’d expect — it gives the user the power to time travel, look into the future, and even trap enemies or entire worlds in time loops. While Soul Stone gives you the power to basically do anything the wielder wants to another living being’s soul.
O is for Orb, the Power Stone. It gives the wielder access to all power and energy that ever has or will exist. It first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy.
S is for Sceptre, Well you can say Vision. It’s the Mind Stone and You know, the one Loki used in The Avengers to turn Hawkeye into his mindless slave, that’s what it is capable of.
Thanos mounts the six Infinity Gems on his left glove to form the titular Infinity Gauntlet. An all-powerful and desperate attempt to win the affections of Death.
