I have often marveled (pardon the pun) about how objects that have such amazing powers like the Infinity Gems individually and collectively manage to evade being found by people with cosmic awareness, psychic powers, superior senses and highly advanced technology?
Each of these gems allow people to use powers that can potentially alter reality, yet none of them have any kind of energy signature, radiation profile, space-time disruption wake? Even in the current Marvel Universe Earth #616, all of the Infinity Gems are held by metahumans ON EARTH.
How did Thanos ever manage to find them in the first place to create the Infinity Gauntlet? Yes, he did know where the Soul Gem was when he and Warlock worked together.
- But how did he even know the others existed?
- Who told him? Or did he just deduce their existence somehow?
- And how did he find them in the entire wide Universe of places they could be?
- Did he have an Infinity Gem detector (a la Dragonball radar)?
- Is there an Infinity Gem carrying case that makes them unable to be detected?
