Thanos, infinity stones and their current location.
Since the most anticipated movie of the year is going to be released in about a month; so we are going to be talking about main Antagonist, Thanos (forgive me I just had to use that picture😂) his background, the infinity stones and their locations.
So a bit of background story, from a comic point of view, Big bad thanos surprisingly is a sucker for love (shook right? ) and not just with anyone but with Death (oooouuu). That’s in a literal and figurative sense since he is in love with the Lady Death who is an embodiment of end of life. So Thanos, is presumably going to do everything to impress her and guess how he is goingpress her and guess how he is going to do that, (you guessed right😂) wipe out a couple of planets and live forms (well, maybe a lot). But it seems there is a slight deviation in the MCU, here it seems he needs to wipe out half of the universe to reduce the overpopulated universe (What a gentleman!). This overpopulation seems to have led to destruction of his home, Titan.
Now to main part, for any big plans of destruction Thanos has, he needs the infinity stones. You might be thinking what would a big man like Thanos want a couple stones, that’s so anti-David (you get , David and Goliath, David used stones but he was small *sighs). Well, the infinity stones or gems are six stones that contain the power of the universe in them. If you have all six stones together you become an omniscient and omnipotent being, technically, a god(can I move to another universe now?😭).
For anyone to use all the six stones at the same time, you need a gauntlet (Well, Thanos has it now, go and fight him to collect it). So for the infinity stones, abilities and location, we have;
*Soul stone: the blue tesseract
This stone allows you travel to through space, via wormholes (Rick Sanchez I see you) .
It was used by the Loki to bring in the Chitauri to earth in the avengers movie. It current location should be in Asgard in Odin’s but it seems it is back in Loki’s possession as seen in Infinity war’s trailer.
* Mind Stone : Yellow (formerly on Loki’s scepter, now on/is vision)
This stone makes you capable of controlling minds, enhances your mental and psionic abilities and allows you enter other beings and thoughts. After Loki’s defeat at new York, it fell into Tony Starks hands in which he created Vision by fusing the stone with his personal Assistant A.I, J.A.R.V.I.S. Thanos would be coming for Vision sooner or later.
* Power Stone : Purple
You remember the stone that Star Lord held with bare fist in Guardians of the galaxy 1 (yes yes!! That one ). This stone is capable of large scale destruction , enhances physical strength and also enhances enhances the abilities of other stones. It was last known to be on Xandar with the Nova Corps.
*Time Stone: Green (Eye of Agomotto)
“Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain”, you remember that scene right? Sweet. The time stone. It allows the user to control time ; go back in time, go to the future, speed up, stop ageing (phew, I wish I could do all that). This stone is currently kept safe in Kamar-Taj under the custody of Wong.
*Reality Stone : Red (Aether)
This stone literally allows you do anything because it grants wishes and makes seemingly impossible things possible. When used in tandem with other stones, it can alter the reality of the universe. It was last seen in Thor: dark world where it was turned into a liquid weapon called aether and later kept under the protection of the collector.
*Soul Stone: Orange
This stone has been said to be able to control and manipulate souls both living and dead. It is to be able to control the souls of all beings in the universe if used at max power.
The soul stone has not featured in the MCU yet, so we expect it show its shiny face anytime soon. Rumours say it’s in wakanda (You didn’t hear that from me)
So that’s the breakdown of the infinity stones and their locations. The movie got us a bit hyped up , let’s how the big man Thanos is going to get all the stones (or at least try to get them.
Thank you for reading. Sayonara.
