AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR SPOILERS: The Location Of All Of The Infinity Stones And How They Come Into Play

Here you'll find a breakdown of where each of the six Infinity Stones are located in Avengers: Infinity War. Does The Mad Titan ultimately get his gauntlet on all of them? Massive SPOILERS will follow...

The entire plot of Avengers: Infinity War revolves around Thanos searching for the six Infinity Stones so he can accomplish his mission of "balancing" the universe by wiping out half of all life in it, and in the end, he gets his hands on all of 'em.

Going in, we already had a pretty good idea where all but one of the incredibly powerful gems were located, but the real surprises lay in witnessing how The Mad Titan ultimately wound up acquiring them.

You'll find all the details below, but beware of massive SPOILERS if you haven't seen the movie yet.

Power Stone (Orb)

We don't actually see Thanos acquire the Power Stone, as it's already been added to the Gauntlet when the movie begins. However, we do find out how he got his hands on it later on in the movie.

Last time we saw the purple gem, the Guardians of the Galaxy had entrusted it to the Nova Corps for protection, and when the space-faring A-holes bump into Thor (literally) he informs them that The Mad Titan decimated the entire planet of Xandar to retrieve it.

Space Stone (Tesseract)

The first of the stones we actually see Thanos add to the Gauntlet is the blue Space Stone which powers the Tesseract.

The warlord's forces attack Thor's ship and wipe out half of the refugees aboard before Thanos threatens to end The God of Thunder's life if his brother doesn't hand over the Tesseract.

Loki calls his bluff at first, but soon realises that The Mad Titan means business and forks over the goods.


Reality Stone (Aether)

At the end of Thor: The Dark World, the Reality Stone was entrusted to The Collector in the form of the Aether, and that's where the GOTG find Thanos in the process of "persuading" Tivan to hand it over.

Except, he's not... or rather, he already has.

The Mad Titan had already nabbed the stone before the Guardians arrived and used it to warp reality in order to trap Gamora.


Soul Stone

This was the big one. Fans speculated endlessly on the whereabouts of the Soul Stone, and many did guess correctly that Gamora would have some connection to it.

It turns out that the fiercest woman in the galaxy was the only one that knew where the stone was being kept, and when her "father" pries the info out of her by torturing Nebula, they go to Vormir to retrieve it.

Unfortunately for Thanos - and even more unfortunately for his daughter - The Red Skull informs him that he needs to sacrifice what he loves most to earn the right to wield it. By bye Gamora.

Time Stone (Eye Of Agamotto)

The Time Stone was in the care of Doctor Strange in the form of the Eye of Agamotto, before he willingly handed it over to Thanos to save Iron Man's life on Titan.

This scene seems to have left a few people confused, but there's a good chance that it was all part of the only scenario in which the Avengers are able to defeat Thanos. The prevailing theory is that when The Sorcerer Supreme glimpsed the future he discovered that they need to allow The Mad Titan to complete his mission.

How will they attempt to reverse what happened? We'll have to wait until Avengers 4 to find out.

Mind Stone (Loki's Sceptre)

The final stone is the catalyst for the Battle of Wakanda, as it's housed in the head of Vision.

Our heroes do their utmost to keep Thanos away from the yellow gem, but in the end, even Scarlet Witch destroying it - and her lover in the process - is to no avail as The Mad Titan simply reverses time and rips it out of Vision's forehead himself. Then...

Yes, even after getting Stormbreaker buried in his chest, Thanos still manages to snap his fingers and complete his apocalyptic quest.

The gauntlet looks to be in pretty bad shape after this but we assume the stones are still in tact, as the villain uses them to retreat to a nice, peaceful location where he can "watch the sun rise over a grateful universe."

You really should have gone for the head, Thor.
