The Infinity Gauntlet is a cosmic relic of incredible power that is most frequently associated with the mad god, Thanos. The wielder is granted almost complete power over Space, Time, Energy, Souls, Minds, and the very fabric of Reality itself, making it a pivotal factor in many storylines since its introduction.
Powers and Stats
Name: Infinity Gauntlet
Classification: Transcendent Gauntlet
Attack Potency: Multiverse level+ (An incomplete Infinity Gauntlet is incredibly superior to the Ultimate Nullifier. Adam Warlock with the Infinity Gantlet overpowered the entire Abstract Host with immense ease, and was considered to hold an ultimate and unlimited power by the likes of Eternity)
Speed: Immeasurable (Those armed with the Infinity Gauntlet are swifter than the Abstracts)
Lifting Strength: Immeasurable
Striking Strength: Multiversal+
Durability: Multiverse level+
List of Infinity Gems: Soul Gem (Green), Power Gem (Red), Time Gem (Orange), Reality Gem (Yellow), Space Gem (Purple), Mind Gem (Blue)
Weaknesses: Cannot work outside the universe it comes from (For example, the IG of 616 will not work outside of U616). The Gems can be removed, rendering the Gauntlet inert if they are somehow all displaced.
- Time Gem: Allows the user total control over all aspects of time including time travel, stopping time, slowing down or speed up flow of time and to accelerate or slow down aging.
- Space Gem: Grants limitless manipulation of space in all of the universe, allowing for teleportation, dimensional manipulation, creation of wormholes, etc.
- Soul Gem: Limitless manipulation of souls both alive and dead. It also has shown to be able to evolve or devolve a beings physical self as well as their mental capacities.
- Reality Gem: Locally or universally alters the natural laws of the universe to the wielders will (i.e Reality Warping).
- Power Gem: Controls all of the power in the universe. It can be used to augment or inhibit any force.
- Mind Gem: Taps the user into the universal consciousness, allowing for unlimited manipulation of psionic powers including telepathy and telekinesis.
Note: While the Infinity Gauntlet is treated as a merely Universal during Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four Run, this claim is contradicted by the Gauntlet's virtually every feat, both before and afterwards, and as such is ignored.
