EDITORIAL: The INFINITY STONE Theory
While watching Thor: The Dark World I noticed something in the library that intrigued me. After doing a little more digging, you won't believe the conclusion I've come to. Hit the jump to check it out.
As mentioned in the teaser, I spotted something while watching Thor: The Dark World recently. It was in the scene where Odin explains the Aether to Jane and Thor. Well, it was the shot where they're walking into the library, but you get my point. Anyway, floating in the library is a big projection of Yggdrassil, Tree of the Worlds. For a second I was just like, "well, that's fairly standard, I mean it is Asgrad." Then I noticed what drove me to write this. On some of the branches, there are large nebulae, of varying colours. I spotted a red, blue, yellow and green one, all of which just so happen to be colours of Infinity Stones. Upon taking further investigation, I noticed that the red nebula contains Svartalfheim, the world of the Dark Elves.
Now, you're probably thinking, "Yeah so, what's that got to do with the price of bread?" Thing is, the Aether just so happens ti be a Dark Elf creation and originates from within this red nebula as a result. The Aether is an Infinity Stone, the Power Stone by most people's perusal.
So, the link I'm trying to make here is that each Infinity Stone, may hold its origin in one of these nebulae, that is if there are any more. This isn't the only piece of evidence I found to link the whole thing together. During Frigga's funeral scene, the boat she is cast out on is burned. As it burns, a mass of green rises from it and ascends into a green nebula. Could this have a link to the Soul Stone? If that was Frigga's soul rising into the nebula, there is a possibility. Another possible piece of evidence is in the Avengers mid-credit with Thanos.
Notice the space clouds. They are mostly dark blue with flecks of purple. The Space Stone, which we know to be the Tesseract is something Thanos wants to get his hands on. Could he have gone to this purple region in an attempt to find and turned up trumps? Once again, there is a possibility. Yet I can give one more piece of speculative evidence. Believe it or not, it lies in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Now, you will notice that the nebula in the image is orange. The Time Stne is orange. If Red Skull was transported here by the Tesseract, it's possible he either encountered the Time Stone or the nebula has time travel capabilities. This can only be confirmed by McNyagano coming into this thread and saying, "Hmmm ;)".
So, what do you guys make of all of this? Could the stones draw power from these nebulae, or are the nebulae the point of creation for the stones? I guess we'll need a little more time to find out, but the evidence is certainly there. Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
