The Soul Stone is one of the six Infinity Stones, the remnant of a singularity that predates the universe. For some time, it was kept on the planet Vormir under the watchful eye of the Stonekeeper, before Thanos came to the planet in search of it, heart-breakingly sacrificing his beloved daughter Gamora to obtain it.

History

The Soul Stone is a remnant of one of the six singularities which existed before the universe's creation. 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.

The Soul Stone represented the soul. The Soul Stone would go on to cultivate a reputation of mystery throughout the galaxy. Even those who were well versed in the powers, and even locations, of the other five Stones had little concrete knowledge regarding the Soul Stone, simply knowing its name.

Despite, or perhaps because of, this aura of mystery, the Soul Stone would eventually be considered as the most dangerous of all the Infinity Stones. Even the Asgardians knew little of the Soul Stone, with Thor stating no one had ever seen it or knew where it was.
