The Infinity Stones of Power, Space, Time, Mind, Soul and Reality are the six most powerful cosmic artifacts in the Marvel Universe. When putting together, they form the Infinity Gauntlet and allow its wielder to have complete control over the creation and the cosmos. But are there just six Infinity Stones? The Marvel Universe is not the only one. A Multi-verse of realities exists within Marvel Comics with each having their own version of the Infinity Stones. Presenting 10 other Infinity Stones from Marvel Comics Marvel fans have no idea about…..
The Ultimate Gauntlets
Marvel Comics’ Ultimates is a comic book issue that depicts Marvel superheroes with a modern twist. It is this universe that was the inspiration for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the Ultimates Universe, there isn’t just one but two Infinity Gauntlets and there aren’t six but eight Infinity Stones, with four for each Gauntlet.
The Gauntlets could be worn separately by two beings or by one being wielding them both. The names of the eight stones of the Ultimates Universe were never mentioned. But looking at the picture above of the Hulk with the Infinity Gauntlets, we could only be sure that this universe is one nasty place to exist in.
The Ego Gem
The Ego Gem first came into being during the Avengers/Ultraforce crossover. In that story arc, it is shown that a seventh Infinity Stone exists which does not control an aspect of the universe. The Ego Gem is a godlike entity called Nemesis that contains the power of all of the six Infinity Stones.
Nemesis created the Ego gem out her own will. She was an all powerful being who became bored of omnipotence and decided to split her into two. The Ego gem contains half the power of the entity known as the Nemesis.
The Continuity Stone is an Infinity Stone that could only find place in the Deadpool story arcs. In a certain issue, Deadpool gets his hands on the Continuity Stone, which gives the characters the powers to talk to the comic book writers themselves. The Picture above shows Deadpool engaging in a conversation with the writers. Safe to say we did not see that in Infinity War.
Doctor Doom’s Infinity Gauntlet
Doctor Doom is a villain that could give Thanos a run for his money. In a certain What If….storyline, Doctor Doom attains the powers of the Beyonders (super powerful cosmic aliens from outside the Universe) and even completes the Infinity Gauntlet, calling it a mere ‘trinket’. He then successfully invades Asgard, the Kree Empire and even kills the Celestials.
Imagine, Doom taking on cosmic gods like the Celestials (these guys can destroy entire star systems with a snap of their fingers and they do it periodically), and winning. Still, think Thanos is the best villain Marvel has ever produced? Think again!!!
The Infinity Stone in Tony Stark’s head
That’s right. Tony Stark had an Infinity Stone inside his head all along!!! In the Ultimates Universe, an evil version of Reed Richards correctly theorizes that the tumor inside Tony Stark’s head that makes him see hallucinations in the form of a young boy named Anthony is, in fact, an Infinity Stone.
The Maker, who is just an alternate and evil version of Reed Richards, ten decides to operate on an incapacitated Tony Stark and remove the tumor aka Infinity Stone from the poor guy’s head. All Tony could do is look in shock while the Maker opened up his head and did live surgery on him.
The Infinity Sword
Marvel’s The Superhero Squad Show was a parody of the Marvel Universe. The animated superhero comedy show told the story of the Infinity Sword, a blade just as powerful as the Infinity Gauntlet. The Infinity Sword was broken down into fractals and scattered all throughout the universe.
The Infinity Sword is another cosmic artifact that is totally unrelated to the Infinity Gantlet. While the Infinity Gauntlet harnessed primordial energies of the universe to grant the user extreme levels of power and energy over mind and matter, the Infinity Sword worked differently. It harnessed the magical reservoirs of the universe. Even one piece of it can grant you access to huge amounts of supernatural energy. And that is why Doctor Doom wanted to have it first before the Avengers could realize what was going on. Before Doom and his cabal could get their hands on all the fractals, Silver Surfer managed to grab hold of both the sword and the gauntlet to become the Dark Surfer.
The Death Stone
The Death Stone makes an appearance in Infinity Gauntlet Vol. 2 – a post-apocalyptic tale involving the adventures of Anwen Bakian and the Bakian clan, Nova Corps members who now lived on a destroyed Xandar. When Thanos comes looking for the final Infinity Stone to complete his Gauntlet, Anwen tricks him into putting the Death Stone into the Glove.
As Thanos puts the Death Stone otherwise called the Mortal Stone, into his Infinity Gauntlet, he is soon engulfed in a huge amount of crippling black energy. The Death Stone overloads the Gauntlet and kills the Mad Titan.
The Build Stone
The LEGO universe has the Guardians racing against time to protect yet another cosmic artifact – the legendary Build Stone. The Build Stone is not canon to the Marvel Universe but its powers are very dangerous. It can build you any weapon imaginable. Ronan the Accuser, the Ravagers and several other villains come after the Build Stone. Fortunately, none succeed.
The Battlerealm Stones
Marvel’s Contest of Champions Video Game has introduced a ton of brand new Infinity Stones to the Marvel universe. The new Infinity Stones of Nightmare, Genesis, Evolution, War, Chaos, and Death have the power to absorb the residual energy of their previous owners and channel it to the one who wields them next. Hela and Thanos even used the Death Stone to trap the Avengers in a pocket universe.
While the Contest of Champions is just a video game, Marvel has confirmed it exists as a universe in Marvel’s comic book Multi-verse, so the six other Infinity Stones collectively called the Battlerealm stones can be considered canon.
The Forever Glass
The Illuminati travels to another universe to prevent a reality incursion. In this universe, the Forever Glasses are much like the Infinity Stones of the mainstream Marvel Universe. This universe’s heroes are cheap knockoffs of the Justice League. They explain that the Forever Glasses combine to form the Wishing Cube, an artifact that can grant literally any wish its wielder desires.
The Wishing Cube works similarly to the Cosmic Cube of the mainstream Marvel Universe. The Reality altering properties of the Cosmic Cube give it the power to alter the very fabric of space and time in order to allow the wielder to do anything his/her heart desires. The concept of the Infinity Gauntlet does not exist in this new universe.
So while the Cosmic Cube is weaker in terms of cosmic energy manipulation compared to the Marvel mainstream universe, in this new universe, it’s the Wishing Cube that is the ultimate totem of strength and energy. The Illuminati have come to this universe in order to destroy it so that this reality does not collide with their own. But none of the heroes are willing to push the button and obliterate an entire universe. Namor then destroys this universe, killing trillions of billions of sentient species to protect their own universe from being obliterated.
Avengers: Infinity War is already in theaters. The official film synopsis reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
