We know that Scarlet Witch's power can destroy Vision's mind stone. At the end of Avengers: Infinity War she is shown destroying Vision's stone while simultaneously using her power on Thanos. Who seems to be blocking it with the stones that he possesses. So in theory, shouldn't those stones be disintegrating as well?



Best Answer

Well the other Infinity stones may not be disintegrating because of a couple of reasons.

1. Not enough power

The bulk of Scarlet Witch's power was going towards disintegrating the Mind stone on Vision. She probably had to stretch herself thin to thwart Thanos as well at the same time. And even then she was barely keeping at it! It would be reasonable to suffice that the energy was not enough to destroy 4 Infinity stones together. Also, if you noticed she was channeling her energy as a barrier to keep Thanos from reaching Vision and not as a direct source on the stones themselves, as she was doing on the Mind stone.


2. Incompatible energy

If I recollect correctly, Vision at some point during the events of Infinity War comments that an energy whose signature matches the signature of the Mind stone could destroy it. And then he looks towards the Scarlet Witch. I am guessing that Scarlet Witch's energy signature matched only that of the Mind stone. And it also makes sense because initially the Scarlet Witch's power was mind manipulation, telekinesis and hypnosis. So she would have known that she could not destroy the other stones even if she wanted to and thus made no attempt at it.

Can Scarlet Witch destroy other Infinity Stones?

The true power of the Scarlet Witch was demonstrated in Avengers: Infinity War, when she was actually able to destroy the Mind Stone. Granted, this strategy unfortunately proved ineffective against Thanos, who simply used the Time Stone to reverse Wanda's actions.

Can Wanda destroy the other stones?

It's later revealed that the scepter housed the mind stone, and the tesseract housed the space stone. If her energy signature is identical to the mind stones, she can destroy (at least) the space stone as well.

Is Scarlet Witch more powerful than the reality stone?

Wanda's abilities are so strong that they seem to be more effective than the Reality Stone, which didn't appear to affect anything permanently when used by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.

Can Scarlet Witch destroy a planet?

According to Agatha, Wanda is wielding chaos magic because her powers were the result of creation, not something she was born with. This supposedly makes Wanda's powers inherently \u201cevil\u201d since the prophecy declares that she will bring destruction to the world.
