Marvel has been hard at work cultivating, constructing and preparing the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the Infinity Stones sub plot by sprinkling them into their films ever since 2011.
Originally called the Infinity Gems, now referred to as Stones, we are introduced to them for the very first time in Captain America’s First Avenger.
The Red Skull’s attempt at wielding the power of the the Space Stone, AKA the Tesseract, proved to be quite detrimental to him as he is seemingly vaporized or possibly teleported.
The Tesseract is then retrieved by Howard Stark who eventually hands it over to the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate which became the Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division.
The cube is then stolen by Loki, the Asgardian God of Mischief but is eventually returned to Asgard by Loki and his half brother Thor.
The Tesseract imbues its user with the power over space, giving the ability to create portals from one part of the cosmos to the other.
The Aether, Or the Realty Stone was first seen in Thor: The Dark World.
The Lord of the Dark Elves, Malekith, attempted to use it to extinguish all light in the Universe.
Thor’s grandfather, Bor Burison managed to take it from Malekith.
During the events of Thor: The Dark World, the Asgardians realized that keeping the Aether and Tesseract Stones in such close proximity of each other may not of been a very good idea.
So to keep it safe, they handed it over to Tanaleer Tevan, the collector.
I’m not quite convinced of that.
The exact power of the Aether remains unknown, but it was almost used to physically alter the nature of reality itself.
The Power Stone, or the Orb, was first seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume one, when it was acquired by Interplanetary Space pirate Star-Lord.
At first, Peter Quills intentions for the Orb were to sell it and turn a quick profit. However, he changes his mind after finding out it’s true potential.
The Orb briefly ends up in the hands of the treacherous villain Ronan The Accuser. But Star-Lord and his band of Guardians manage to get it back from Ronan and entrust it to the most prestigious police force in the galaxy, the Nova Corps, who lock it away in a vault on Xandar.
The Power Stone is able to grant its owner with unlimited distructive capabilities, enough to destroy an entire planet.
The mind Stone, this one was first seen in the original Avengers film, although we didn’t know that it was in fact the Mind Stone at the time.
The Chitauri Scepter, a staff weapon, served as the original containment vessel for the mind stone. The staff would later mostly be referred to as Loki’s Scepter.
It was gifted to Loki by Thanos to lead and command the Chitauri Earth invasion.
Loki also used the Scepter to brainwash and mind control whoever he chose.
The Stone also spent some time in the hands of Hydra who use it to control the minds of the Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver.
After the Avengers captured Loki, Tony Stark used the Stone to create a powerful sentient being known as the Vision. The Stone remains embedded in the Visions forehead although judging by the Infinity War trailer, it probably won’t be there very much longer.
Next up we have the Eye of Agamotto, the Time Stone. The Eye first appeared in Marvels 2016 release of Doctor Strange.
The gem is a legendary mystical artefact that belongs to the Sorcerers Supreme. Agamotto, the first of these powerful magic users, acquired the emerald gem and placed it inside a pendent which later became known as the Eye of Agamotto.
For centuries, the Sorcerers Supreme have used the Eye to help them protect the earth from mystical threats.
The Time Stone’s power is quite obvious given its namesake. It provides its wielder the ability to control the flow of the space time continuum.
Doctor Strange used the Stone to defeat the Dark Lord Dormammu from conquering our dimension by creating an infinite time loop.
The Eye currently resides in the ancient library of Kamar-Taj, home of the Masters of the Mystic arts.
The sixth and final Gem has yet to make an appearance. The Soul Stone is the final piece of the puzzle. A puzzle that Marvel has been fabricating over the course of 11 years, and 22 movies.
Sure, there has been some very interesting speculation and theories as to where the Stone might be. Many expected it to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two. When that didn’t pan out, many people turned to Thor: Ragnarok, hoping Hela would have it, or perhaps even the warrior Heimdall, using it as a source of power to help him guard the Asgardian Bifrost bridge.
My favourite theory being that it resides behind Odin’s eyepatch ever since his introduction.
There’s only one more Marvel film left to be released before the Avengers Infinity War hits theatres next May, and that’s Black Panther. So I’m going to go all in, and say that the stone, is most likely in Wakanda.
That’s a pretty big hint considering the power of the Soul Stone. It’s able to control the soul of any being, alive or dead, as well as transport its owner to the afterlife.
