This one is pretty simple and straight-forward: does the Infinity Gauntlet have any special powers or attributes, when it does not contain any Infinity Stones? Is it merely decorative, a fashionable way of wielding all six stones simultaneously, or is there some reason why you must have the Gauntlet itself?
I have done some research, but I can't find any info one way or another. One Infinity Gauntlet (apparently there are several in the MCU) is on display in Odin's trophy room, which would seem to imply that it is special somehow, although it could just be a memento of another would-be conqueror who united the stones in the past.
Do we have any information on what the Gauntlet itself can do, and why uniting the Infinity Stones necessarily seems to involve using that specific item?
