Its power was shown in the first Avengers film by opening a portal invading alien fleet to New York City. Currently shown in the films, the Tesseract is in Agard (the place where Thor is from) but in the “Infinity War’’ trailer it was shown that Loki (Thor’s brother) stole the Tesseract, possibly giving it to Thanos.

The Mind Stone, first appeared in in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” This stone gave life to the films antagonist Ultron and to the new hero Vision. Currently the stone is in the head of Vision.

The Time Stone is inside the Eye of Agamotto. First appearing in “Doctor Strange,” the Time Stone has been shown to reverse, forward, and stop time. Also, it has been shown that it is able to create time loops (living the same moment over and over again). The stone is currently still with Doctor Strange.
