What is the current position of all Infinity stones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? - Red and Black Galaxy Illustration

We know that there are six Infinity Stones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But as I didn't see the movies in the correct sequence I couldn't understand where the Infinity Stones are right now and who is using them.

So, can anyone please help me by telling me the current status of the Infinity stones?

'The Infinty Stones' a series of gems in the shape of oval orbs displayed in order with their respective names and colours. In order: 1. The Mind Gem (Red) 2. The Reality Gem (Orange) 3. The Power Gem (Yellow) 4. The Space Gem (Green) 5. The Time Gem (Blue) 6. The Soul Gem (Purple).

Best Answer

All information is correct as of the latest Cinematic Universe movie: Black Panther (February 2018) & Infinity War trailers (April 2018).

Mind Gem

  • In Vision's forehead
    • Seemingly giving him life.
  • Formerly part of Loki's Staff from The Avengers (2012).
  • Last seen in Captain America: Civil War (2016).

Screen capture of The Vision, a character from the movie *The Avengers: Age of Ultron*. The Vision has the 'Mind Gem' on/within his forehead. Screen Capture of 'Loki's Sceptre' from the movie *The Avengers: Age of Ultron*, having formerly contained the 'Mind Gem'.

Space Gem

  • Was in Odin's vault. Loki passes by it while brining Surtur's crown to the Eternal Flame in Thor: Ragnarök (2017).
  • With Loki aboard the Grandmaster's ship seen within trailers for Infinity War (April 2018).

Loki handing the Tesseract presumably to Thanos

Time Gem

  • Encased inside the 'Eye of Agamotto'
  • In Doctor Strange's possession on Earth (2016).

Screen capture of the glowing green orb, encased within a bronze coloured elaborately patterned metal casing, known as 'The Eye of Agamotto'.

Power Gem

  • On Xandar with the Nova Corps at the end of The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 (2014).
  • Originally encased within the Orb that Star Lord retrieves at the beginning of the film

Screen capture from the movie *The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1*, showing an elaborate and intricately carved silver coloured orb which opens up and contains the glowing purple 'Power Gem'.

Reality Gem

  • Encased within (or in the form of) The Aether
    • Assumed to still be in the possession of The Collector after the explosion on Knowhere (The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 - 2014).
    • It was given to him by the Warriors Three at the end of Thor: The Dark World (2013).

Screen capture from a scene in the movie *Thor: The Dark World*, showing 'The Aether', a silvery-black flowing liquid, almost alive, within a red backdrop. Presumably 'The Aether' is or contains the 'Reality Gem'.

Soul Gem

  • Unknown at this time
  • From the image provided by the Collector during The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 1 we can assume this gem to be orange in some way.


An image, presumably released either by Marvel or fan-made, depicting a list (in table format) of all of the known (and yet to be revealed) Infinity Stones/Gems. The top row has the gems, all roughly hewn and of varying shapes, mostly about the size of a large walnut, in order 1. The 'Space Stone' (Blue) 2. The 'Mind Stone' (Yellow) 3. The 'Reality Stone' (Red) 4. The 'Power Stone' (Purple) 5. The 'Time Stone' (Green) 6. The 'Soul Stone' (Orange). The Second row tells us where each is contained (as explained above) a the third row tells us where it is, or in who's possession (also explained above).

Bonus side-note In the Cinematic Universe there are two Infinity Gauntlets - Right & Left.

The Right-Hand Gauntlet was in Loki's possession during Thor: Ragnarok. However it was shown by Hela to be a faked gauntlet.

Screen capture featuring a 'right-handed' metallic glove or gauntlet, it is golden and has small notches on each main knuckle, as well as a slightly larger on in the top part of the palm, presumably ready to contain the 'Infinity Gems'. The gauntlet looks like it is in a vitrine display.

The Left-Hand Gauntlet is in Thanos' possession at the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron & within the Infinity War Trailers.

Do the Infinity Stones still exist in the MCU?

As revealed in Avengers: Endgame, Thanos (Josh Brolin) used their power to unmake them, forcing the Avengers into committing a Time Heist to reverse the effects of the Blip. Nevertheless, the Stones continue to exist thanks to variant timelines and that Multiverse that Marvel keeps teasing.

Where is Infinity Stones now?

Although the stones were destroyed in the beginning of Avengers: Endgame, Thanos had said that the stones had been reduced to atom. This had led to speculations that it was not fully destroyed.

Are there 11 Infinity Stones?

In the Ultimate universe, there are a total of eight different Infinity Stones. Some of them were never called out by name, but it's safe to assume that at least six of them were the standard set: Space, Time, Power, Reality, Mind, and Soul.

Who has used all 6 Infinity Stones?

Gamora. In last summer's Infinity Wars event, Gamora collected all six Infinity Stones and used them to fold the universe in half, collapsing Marvel heroes in to mashups of themselves like Iron Hammer and Ghost Panther, and she did it all without ever requiring a gauntlet.
