The Mind Stone is one of the six Infinity Stones, the remnant of a singularity that predates the universe, which governed over the fabric of Mind. It was previously wielded by Loki inside his Scepter who received it as a gift from Thanos for the Chitauri Invasion.

After the Battle of New York, the Scepter was confiscated by S.H.I.E.L.D., but it was later stolen by Wolfgang von Strucker's HYDRA cell whose scientists used it to give extraordinary powers to the twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff using the power of the Stone.

After the fall of HYDRA, the Scepter was recovered by the Avengers. It was taken by Ultron and its blue gem casing was shattered, releasing the inside it and was used to give life to Vision. It remained with Vision until it was forcibly removed by Thanos following the Battle on Wakanda, killing Vision in the process.

History

After the Universe came to be, the four immensely powerful Cosmic Entities forged the remnant of six singularities into concentrated ingots which were dubbed the Infinity Stones. The Mind Stone governed over the fabric of Mind.

The Mind Stone was originally portrayed as a containment vessel and a power source for the Scepter. The Infinity Stone granted the Scepter such diverse abilities to fire energy projectile blasts, manipulate minds, enable teleportation, perform astral projection and allow mental communication.

The Infinity Stone has been under Thanos' possession unknowingly, who entrusted the Scepter to Loki of Asgard, along with an armada of Chitauri infantry troops and Leviathans, under the condition that Loki invade Earth to obtain the Tesseract and plan absolute subjugation under his reign.
