Infinity Stones – Where are they now?

by Sean P. Aune | March 31, 2018March 31, 2018 8:00 am PST

With Avengers Infinity War only weeks away from release, it’s time everyone got up to speed on where exactly the Infinity Stones are.

Let me get this out of the way, if you want to see Avengers Infinity War completely clean, you are safe to read this list. This guide does contain spoilers up to, and including Thor Ragnarok., but no references are made to what has even been shown in the Avengers Infinity War trailers.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been teasing us with Infinity Stones since Captain America The First Avenger when we met the Space Stone in the form of the Tesseract. Since then it has been a very slow burn learning about the other five stones, with the biggest reveal being a monologue given by The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy.

There have been hints that it’s a bad idea to have two of the Stones in the same place, but no mention has been made as to what may happen if all six are brought together. What also hasn’t been mentioned is that is exactly what Thanos wants to do. We won’t spoil what Thanos did when he collected all six stones in the iconic Infinity Gauntlet comic series – just in case the films follow it beat for beat. Thanos intends to lock all six stones into that golden gauntlet you’ve seen appear here and there throughout the MCU’s first four phases. With all six stones on-hand (get it?), Thanos’ only limitation is his imagination; space and time are at his command. So where did we put those stones? This seems important.

Infinity War is going to see Thanos finally collecting all six of the Stones together, but in case you need a refresher of where they all are, we’re here to help.

Space Infinity Stone MCU

Space Stone

The Space Stone was the first introduction the movie-going audience had to the concept of the Infinity Stones. Introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger, this stone has had the most screen time of any of them as it also served as a key plot point in The Avengers. While it was returned to Asgard at the end of that film, we saw Loki take a long look at it in the Asgardian vault in Thor Ragnarok leading many to believe he stole it before the world was destroyed by Surtur.

  • Color in the MCU: Blue
  • Color in the Comics: Purple until 2016, now Blue
  • Last Seen: In the Asgardian vault in Thor Ragnarok.

Mind Infinity Stone MCU

Mind Stone

The introduction of the Mind Stone was unknown to the audience at the time, but it was in Loki’s scepter he used throughout The Avengers. It was next seen being used by Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in a credits scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier to give powers to Wanda and Pietro Maximoff. Finally it was used in Avengers: Age of Ultron to give life to Ultron’s creation, The Vision.

  • Color in the MCU: Yellow
  • Color in the Comics: Blue until 2016, now Yellow
  • Last Seen: Still in the Vision’s head in Captain America: Civil War.

Reality Infinity Stone MCU

Reality Stone

Oddly we have never seen the Reality Stone in its stone form other than in the crash course The Collector gives to the Guardians as to what the stones are. In its only appearance in the films, in Thor: The Dark World, it is seen more as a liquid and is known as the Aether. In a credits scene it is seen being given to The Collector, but there is some question as to where it may be following the explosion of the Power Stone in Guardians of the Galaxy.

  • Color in the MCU: Red
  • Color in the Comics: Yellow until 2016, now Red
  • Last Seen: Given to The Collector at the end of Thor: The Dark World.

Power Infinity Stone MCU

Power Stone

The Power Stone is passed around extensively in Guardians of the Galaxy, but is eventually given to the Nova Corps for safekeeping. More than likely it’s still there as we haven’t been back to space see anything else since the end of that film.

  • Color in the MCU: Purple
  • Color in the Comics: Red until 2016, now Purple
  • Last Seen: Entrusted to the Nova Corps in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Time - Infinity Stone - MCU

Time Stone

The Time Stone was revealed to be known as the Eye of Agamotto in Doctor Strange, a complete departure from the comics. While the pendant is a main part of Doctor Strange lore on the printed page, it does not house an Infinity Stone.

  • Color in the MCU: Green
  • Color in the Comics: Orange until 2016, now Green
  • Last Seen: Entrusted to the Nova Corps in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Unseen Stones

Collector Infinity Stone MCU

Soul Stone

  • Color in the MCU: Yet to be seen – based on scene of the Guardians of the Galaxy presumed to be Orange as it is the only stone yet to be seen.
  • Color in the Comics: Green until 2016, now Orange
  • Last Seen: Not seen yet.
