Assembled together, they create a positive feedback loop, granting the user infinite power. The Infinity Gauntlet's power is known to exceed that of abstract entities like Eternity. Originally, the Infinity Gems were protected by what would be known as the Infinity Watch after Adam Warlock won the Infinity Gauntlet and was put on trial by the Living Tribunal , being found too mentally unstable to handle the power. The Infinity Watch remained until the gems disappeared.
The gems were later protected by the Illuminati, and each member was given a gem to hide from anybody else.
Following the creation of the Eighth Cosmos , the Infinity Stones were scattered across the universe,  passing through many hands before finding a group of owners that became the new short-lived Infinity Watch,  from whom Gamora stole all of the Infinity Stones: . During the Infinity Wars , Gamora created a pocket universe within Soul World called Warp World , unwittingly creating duplicates of the Infinity Stones that were collected by Loki and his allies.
These were the final wielders of the Infinity Stones before Adam Warlock granted each gem their own soul so that they could live a life of their own: . Their powers are unknown but presumably comparable to their multiversal counterparts. In this universe, there are eight Infinity Gems instead of six.
They were generated on the Earth during great calamities, including the paleolithic extinction event, Ragnarok , the Ultimatum Wave , and the sinking of Atlantis and Lemuria, as some sort of scar tissue to help the planet. Four of them were in S. After the events centered around the Mind Gem, the Invisible Woman learned about the other two gems in the gauntlet.
She noticed the glove was designed to hold four gems, so she set out to find the fourth Gem before it fell in wrong hands. Thor tried to talk to the gems as if they were sentient, demanding the location of the others, causing him and Sue to be teleported to a Hydra research base in New Mexico. An energy surge from the Gem caused Commander Crimson to disintegrate, and the gem to melt the ground and fall straight down into Earth's core. The Sue Storm of an alternate future , who called herself Kang , traveled back in time from the destruction of her reality to the present, convinced that she would need the Infinity Gems to prevent the cataclysm she escaped from.
Kang's Dark Ultimates stroke when the present Sue Storm was briefing the rest of the Ultimates on the five Gems that had been acquired. Hulk destroyed the Triskelion and got hold of the Gems, while Quicksilver retrieved the sixth gem from the ruins of the Maker's Dome.
Let's Stay in Touch
Using the power of the almost-finished Infinity Gauntlets , the Dark Ultimates began to reshape the world their image. As part of a desperate attempt to stand against the Dark Ultimates, Tony Stark tinkered a glove theoretically capable of attracting and containing the Power Gem that became buried underneath Nebraska. Before he could use it, Stark was neutralized by Quicksilver, because he possessed inside his brain the final Infinity Gem. Reed surgically removed the Gem from Tony's brain,  and apprehended Johnny Storm from a hospital, brainwashed him, and used his capacity to sustain enormous temperatures to retrieve the Power Gem from Earth's core.
Kang had to take the Gem forcefully from Pietro, who had realized Reed planned on eradicating mutantkind when he completed the Infinity Gauntlet. They fought for the grasp of the final Gem. Kang tried to convince Reed that she needed to have the Gauntlet, otherwise the universe would end. Thanks to the intervention of Johnny Storm, who had snapped out of the brainwash, the gems fell in Iron Man's possession.
In the very next moment, a tear in the fabric of reality caused by a Wolverine echoed through the Multiverse, and shattered the Infinity Gems. The Avengers first became aware of the existence of the Infinity Stones as they are called, instead of Gems after the Red Skull escaped from his master Thanos with them. The stones excluding the Soul stone were scattered all over the Earth shortly before his ship crashed in Brazil.
He managed to maintain hold of only one of the five Infinity Stones, the Power Stone. The Avengers intercepted the Red Skull and obtained of the Power Stone, and they reactivated a secret robot created by Howard Stark named Arsenal to contain its energy in another dimension. The other four Infinity Stones were later found by the Avengers. The Time Stone was captured after fluctuating through time, and it was temporarily lodged in Iron Man's arc reactor ;  the Mind Stone had been seized by M.
However, Black Widow noticed that Tony was slowly being corrupted by the Stones. She sneaked into the vault containing the Stones and stole them with the intention to hand them over to Thor so he could take for safekeeping to Asgard. After escaping from the rest of the Avengers, who believed her to be a traitor, Widow was accompanied by Thor to Asgard, but even before handing the Stones over to Heimdall , he was corrupted, and they were forced to return to the Earth.
The duo was intercepted by the Guardians of the Galaxy , who came to the Earth to claim the stones for safekeeping. Black Widow didn't trust them with the Stones, and confronted them. The Avengers arrived to protect her, as they had realized she was right. After the Guardians were dealt with, the Avengers visited Doctor Strange , so he could bury the Stones between realms. Dormammu arrived subsequently in order to claim the Stones, and Black Widow was forced to wield them in order to vanish him back to his dimension.
After initially falling into the Stones' influence, Natasha was capable of resisting their control and reject them. However, as soon as she stripped of the Stones, Thanos returned, and assembled the Infinity Gauntlet with the Power Stone that was already in his possession. Using the Gauntlet, Thanos created a citadel near Earth's orbit. The Avengers attempted to stop him, but the Mad Titan ignored them as he used the Gauntlet to modify Earth's climate, causing earthquakes, ice ages, and other anomalies around the globe.
As part of a contingency plan, the Avengers needed to get the readings of each stone individually. By attacking Thanos' ego, they got him to use each stone alone to fight them. He first aged the Avengers until they died with the Time Stone, but Thor forced him to reverse time after causing the Titan's energy beam to backfire, aging him.
After bringing them back, he used the Mind Gem to fuel them with anger and make them fight each other, however, Hulk managed to get them to focus their rage and attack Thanos, for which the Titan decided to stop its influence over them. Using the Space Gem, he attacked each Avenger by teleporting immediately after striking.
Even after Hawkeye and Black Widow found the pattern of his attacks in order to avoid them, Thanos used the Reality Gem and incapacitated the Avengers, by making them see a reality where global peace was achieved. Captain America managed to see through this lie, and freed the Avengers from its influence. Once the Avengers stroke back, Thanos used the Power Stone to fight them.
After the Avengers restrained him, Thanos decided to stop following their game, and reactivated all of the Gauntlet's power at once. He used the Gauntlet to destroy Iron Man, but it was revealed the armor was being controlled remotely, and Stark was in the Avengers Tower, using the readings of each individual stone to put Arsenal back online. Thanos brought Stark's lab to his citadel, but he rebooted Arsenal, who proceeded to fight Thanos.
Arsenal absorbed any attack from Thanos, and finally took the Gauntlet from him. When Iron Man tried to retrieve the Gauntlet from the hands of Arsenal, the robot denied Tony's action. It was revealed a backdoor left in the robot's programming allowed Ultron to possess him. Arsenal was re-shaped into Ultron, and the evil A.
The five Stones were drained of their power by Ultron. In Guardians of the Galaxy , the Soul Stone is revealed to have been with Adam Warlock , which is precisely placed on his forehead. The Stone appears to turn dark whenever he starts exhibiting negative emotions.

This is the only stone Thanos did not use alongside the other stones on his gauntlet. Similar to Earth, Thanos had gathered the Infinity Gems and attempted to use the Infinity Gauntlet to rule the universe, but is stopped by a group of heroes.
Awakened And Betrayed (The Lost Sentinel, #2) by Ivy Asher
In a later appearance, the Infinity Gems are referred to as the Infinity Stones. The remaining stones were gathered by the heroes and used to destroy Ultron Sigma with the Infinity Buster. Afterwards Thor decided that there should be six custodians to the Infinity Stones, two being entrusted to Earth, two to Xgard, and two to the Dark Kingdom. Thanos first obtained the Soul Stone from Adam Warlock. He received the Time Stone from the center force field.
The Space Stone was found on an asteroid but was stolen by Nebula and he later took it back from her. He received the Power Stone from Nova.
After the scuffle Nova used a teleporter to send the stone far away into the deepest depths of space. Using its power, the Silver Surfer became the Dark Surfer and used the Gauntlet's powers to scatter the Squaddies across six different dimensions. Afterwards, he used them to rip the Earth out of orbit. In the final battle the Surfer split himself into six differently colored copies each color corresponding with a different Infinity Stone and prepared to fight the Squaddies.
As shown, each Hero Factor countered a specific Infinity Stone. After the Squaddies defeated him, the Dark Surfer sent the stones and the sword to the Infinity Pool. The fractals fixed what the Dark Surfer did to the Universe, and freed the beings trapped within the Soul Stone. It was the operating system that linked the others to form a device of unparalleled creative force.
Once the other six gems reunited with it, they were rendered entirely sentient and anthropomorphised into Nemesis. Looking identical to the Reality Stone, Bakian handed it over to an unaware Thanos, where it promptly disintegrated him. According to the Collector , the Infinity Stones were six different singularities existing before the beginning of the universe.
