How did Proxima Midnight know Wanda was protecting the Stone? - Full Moon

In Avengers: Infinity War, as soon as Wanda goes to the battlefield to help, Proxima tells Corvus Glaive to take the Stone. How did she know that Wanda was protecting it, and why did they assume that there was no one else to stop him?

How did she know that Wanda was protecting it?

Proxima had not seen Wanda on the battlefield until then. Wanda makes an impression when she fights ("Why was she up there all this time?"), so Proxima wouldn't have missed her. Thus, if Wanda wasn't taking part in the fight, it stands to reason that she was somewhere else.

As the situation is dire and she's the Avenger's power house, she's probably protecting the one thing that the bad guys are trying to get, namely, the Stone. Vision being her lover helps as well (and Proxima knew that, as they had fought before).

Why did they assume that there was no one else to stop him?

Who says they assumed that? As long as "power house" Wanda is out of the way, Corvus Glaive has a good chance of defeating whatever protection is left. The guy isn't totally helpless in a fight himself.

Actually, it's not unreasonable to assume no one else could stop him: at this point, most if not all heroes are outside, fighting the army of minions. Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Quill and Nebula are on a planet with no means of transport, last Thanos checked. Thor, Groot and Rocket are unaccounted for, but Thor would be seen if he was present (lightning and all), and Thanos probably doesn't know that Stormbreaker can summon the Bifrost.

Is Wanda the only one who can destroy an Infinity Stone?

Saw this question about Avengers: Infinity War and the accepted answer says that Wanda is the only one who can destroy the MIND stone.

Does Corvus Glaive love Proxima Midnight?

In the comics, Earth-616, Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight are a married couple. We see them together in Avengers: Infinity War, going on the mission to get the Mind Stone together and working in tandem in the Battle of Wakanda. They also seem to care for each other but as Children of Thanos this seems reasonable.

How did Ultron know about the mind stone?

Ultron knows about the existence of the Mind Gem because his own intelligence is based in part on the gem. But even if he didn't know because of that fact, he would have known that there was more to the jewel, from having access to all of Tony and Bruce's notes.

Why can Wanda destroy an Infinity Stone?

Because her powers are the same energy as the Mind Stone. As seen in Age of Ultron, Wanda and Pietro were given their powers by von Strucker, using Loki's Scepter (which contained the Mind Stone). Because of this, Wanda is the only person who could destroy the stone.
