Those who have already watched ‘Doctor Strange’ have noticed a major obvious link to other Marvel movies: an Infinity Stone. The illustrious rocks are often the fundamental point of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films, but that’s involved with a lot of history. The Tesseract, the first of the Infinity Stones introduced, was previously seen nearly five years ago. With the Eye of Agamotto adding another artifact to keep track of, it’s time to lighten up our memories on the location of Infinity Stones and what their actual function is.
The Tesseract: Also known as the Space Stone, the first Infinity Stone introduced in the MCU has the largest history. The blue cube was first shown in “Thor” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” before finally becoming a major threat in “The Avengers.” It controls space. The user is able to teleport, simultaneously be in two places at once and control the existence of other objects. The Tesseract was sent back to Asgard with Thor for safe keeping at the end of the 2012 movie.
The Aether: All of us would remember the dark red liquid back in “Thor: The Dark World”. That was the Reality Stone. It actually grants the user the power to alter reality, which is a fairly ambiguous quality. Viewers saw it grant Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) enhanced strength in “The Dark World,” and it can definitely be used as a powerful weapon. At the end of the 2013 movie, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) sends it to the Collector. “Guardians of the Galaxy” fans know that the Collector’s lair was blown up, so it’s unclear if he still has the Reality Stone.
Loki’s Scepter: Thanos (Josh Brolin) lent Loki (Tom Hiddleston) the Mind Stone when he sent the Asgardian to Earth for the Tesseract. Not only did Loki fail to acquire the Tesseract, but his scepter was also robbed of him by S.H.I.E.L.D. Unfortunately, Hydra somehow managed to gain its posession and used it to give powers to Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quiksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). After Ultron (James Spader) shattered the blue casing, it was just the yellow Mind Stone that was left. It was used to bring Vision (Paul Bettany) to life, and it now stays in plac in his forehead. He has used it to shoot energy blasts out of his forehead, fly and much more. However, even Vision admitted in “Captain America: Civil War” that he is still unclear of the actual capabilities of the Mind Stone.
The Orb: The purple orb on which the plot of “Guardians of the Galaxy” basically revolved on was the Power Stone. As implicated by its name, it’s a fairly powerful gem. Its powers can go as far as destroying a planet, so it’s a good thing Star Lord (Chris Pratt) and the other Guardians managed to prevent it falling into the possession of wrong hands. They handed it over to the Nova Corps, a police force in Xandar, and they put the Power Stone in a vault in the city.
The Eye of Agamotto: The green stone in Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) amulet was revealed to be the Time Stone. Obviously, it controls time. Viewers already saw how powerful it can be in latest Marvel movie. At the end of the flick, Strange puts it back on its pedestal at Kamar-Taj in Tibet.
That’s it on the Infinity Stones. Leave your views and opinions regarding this by commenting in the comments section below.
