Thanos just got his hands on one of Marvel’s Infinity Stones

One of Marvel’s most iconic villains just got his hands on one of the Infinity Stones.

Silver Surfer: Rebirth #5 sees the unlikely pair of the titular hero and the Mad Titan take on the nearly unstoppable tyrant, who has managed to claim the power of the Reality Stone for himself. When the Silver Surfer nearly kills Tyrant to end the fight, the hero rushes to pull the Reality Stone from his opponents’ clutches. The Silver Surfer only keeps it for a few moments before returning it to its then rightful owner, Thanos.

Following Tyrant’s defeat at the hands of the Silver Surfer, Thanos finishes the job by seemingly killing the villain before turning his attention to the artifact at hand. Thanos reminds his temporary ally that he was last given custody of the Reality Stone and is therefore entitled to its restitution. Despite his reluctance to return the Reality Stone to him, the Silver Surfer ultimately acquiesces to Thanos’ request.

First introduced collectively as Soul Gems in 1977 annual avengers #7 by Jim Starlin, the Infinity Stones have long been among the most powerful artifacts in the entire Marvel Universe. While the Mad Titan originally sought them out for unspecified reasons, the true nature of his quest would eventually become horribly clear. After assembling the five stones and placing them in the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos wiped out half of all life in the universe in a moment that became infamous both in and outside the realm of the tape. drawn.

After his defeat, Thanos fell into a deep fit of introspection and self-doubt. This in turn led Adam Warlock to the idea that he might be able to change as a person. As such, Adam Warlock entrusted the power of an Infinity Stone to Thanos in secret, all in the hopes that he could not only protect her from any nefarious force, but that the responsibility might uncover something truly good within the Mad Titan.

When Silver Surfer again left the Reality Gem to Thanos, Genis-Vell voices many obvious and potentially serious concerns. However, these are usually rebuffed by the Silver Surfer, as he sees within Thanos the potential for change. The issue ends with Thanos returning to a quiet life of farming, suggesting that the Silver Surfer’s hunch may have been correct.
