I had this random thought that the stone from Agents of SHIELD
Is one of the Infinity Gems
At first I was like:
Surely the Agents of SHIELD writers would reach that far to tie the show to the cinematic universe. Not to mention is it certainly too big to fit on the gauntlet.
THEN I thought that in theory neither would any if the other gems, unlike the comic universe only the mind and power (scepter and the orb) are gauntlet size, the space gem (the tesseract) and the reality gem (the aether) aren’t exactly gem size.
Then I looked up the infinity gems and found the soul gem:
“…is the gateway to an idyllic pocket universe that is much
like heaven. “ - Where it could have taken Simmons
“It also has the ability to steal the powers and abilities
of others,” - Which is why the Inhumans were so scared of it
“The Soul Gem is sentient and has a hunger for souls.” - Which is why it ‘ate’ Simmons
is often considered to be the most dangerous and corrupt of all the
