Reality Stone

The Reality Stone is one of the six Infinity Stones, the remnant of a singularity that predates the universe. A force of ancient and catastrophic power, the Reality Stone has the potential to transform the entire universe.

It was liquified into a dark red fluid called the Aether, which the Dark Elves and their leader Malekith intended to use to bring eternal darkness upon all of the Nine Realms. Taken from the Elves by the Asgardians, it was later entrusted to the Collector following the conclusion of the Second Dark Elf Conflict.

Years later, the Mad Titan Thanos later retrieved it from the Collector's Museum in Knowhere, returned its form to a Stone, and inserted it into his Infinity Gauntlet.

The Reality Stone is a remnant of one of the six singularities which existed before the universe. After the universe came into existence, four cosmic beings known as the Cosmic Entities forged the energies of these singularities into six immensely powerful objects called the Infinity Stones.

This stone represents reality, as it possesses the power to bend the very laws of reality and physics, converting matter into dark matter.
