"Fun isn't something one considers when balancing the universe. But this... does put a smile on my face!"

The Infinity Gauntlets are items used to manipulate the power of the Infinity Stones. There are two Infinity Gauntlets. The one on Odin's Trophy Room is a replica and a right handed gauntlet. The other one in Thanos' possession is the original and a left handed gauntlet.



The right Gauntlet was on display in Odin's Trophy Room and guarded by The Destroyer.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

In Thor's vision induced by Wanda, Thor saw the Infinity Stones being assembled on a cloud-like version of the Infinity Gauntlet.

Thanos opened a vault to a stoneless Infinity Gauntlet that he put on his left hand, and made note to find the stones so that he can destroy Earth himself.

Thor: Ragnarok

The right Gauntlet was later revealed by Hela to be the fake one when she entered on Odin's Trophy Room.

Avengers: Infinity War

The gauntlet was forged by Eitri, the king of the Dwarves, using the forge that had been used to create Mjölnir. Thanos ordered Eitri to forge the gauntlet in exchange for sparing the dwarves' lives but went back on his word and only spared Etri when the deed was done. Thanos went on to collect all six Infinity Stones and erased half the life in the universe with the snap of his fingers.

  • In the comics, Thanos tries to prove his love for Death by using The Infinity Gauntlet to wipe out the entire Marvel Universe.
  • In the comics, there was only one Infinity Gauntlet, rather than two. When holding the Infinity Gems, the Infinity Gauntlet grants the bearer infinite powers when used within the universe of its origin.
  • The stones shown in the Gauntlet in Thor are fakes created by Asgardians to show how the item is supposed to look.
  • In Thor, the Gauntlet is depicted as being worn on the wielder's right hand, while in Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Avengers: Infinity War teaser, it is depicted as being worn on the wielder's left hand, like in the comics.
