WandaVision’s Infinity Stones Energy Shade Idea, Defined
Warning: Spoilers for WandaVision forward.
In an attention-grabbing (and sure unintentional) parallel, the colour signatures of the magic customers and magic-adjacent folks in WandaVision roughly line up with the colours of the Infinity Stones, with comparable powers to match. When the sequence first began, Wanda, a.okay.a. Scarlet Witch, was the one magic consumer, and Imaginative and prescient additionally had powers. However because the sequence has progressed, their excellent sitcom suburbia of Westview has began to turn into populated with all kinds of superpowered people, and so they every deliver with them a signature shade when wielding their powers.

The primary three phases of the MCU are thought-about the “Infinity Saga” and handled the overarching story of Thanos gathering the Infinity Stones to wield the Infinity Gauntlet and wipe out half of life within the universe. Every Infinity Stone had its personal shade and signature energy. The House Stone is blue, the Actuality Stone is pink, the Energy Stone is purple, the Time Stone is inexperienced, the Thoughts Stone is yellow and the Soul Stone is orange. Every one was insanely highly effective by itself, so highly effective, in truth, that simply touching one was deadly to most creatures within the universe save for essentially the most highly effective beings. Nonetheless, the stones, and the gauntlet itself, have been ostensibly destroyed in Avengers: Endgame when Tony Stark stole the Infinity Gauntlet and reversed the destruction of Thanos’s snap.
Nonetheless, the Infinity Stones have been extremely highly effective creations, solid from the Massive Bang itself. Assuming the MCU hasn’t chosen to utterly obliterate the fundamental ideas of physics, the primary legislation of thermodynamics, a.okay.a. the legislation of conservation of power, states that power can neither be created nor destroyed, however solely remodeled or transferred from one kind to a different. Even with Stark undoing Thanos’s manifestation of half the universe being destroyed, it is arduous to think about the Infinity Stone simply vanished. All that energy and potential has to go someplace. Whereas the signature colours of every powered grownup in WandaVision is nearly definitely a stylistic alternative by the manufacturing design, it is nonetheless attention-grabbing to see how the grownup characters within the Disney+ sequence are lining up with an Infinity Stone counterpart in a neat little parallel.
Scarlet Witch – Actuality Stone (Pink Powers)
All through the MCU, Wanda’s magic as Scarlet Witch has manifested in hues of pink. In fact, that is her signature shade within the comedian books and the hue of her aptly-named superhero moniker. However that is precisely why it was all the time fascinating and a bit odd that she gained her powers from the yellow Thoughts Stone within the MCU. Initially, it made sense contemplating her live-action origin story and background, nevertheless it did not line up together with her conventional powers within the comics.
With the arrival of WandaVision, nonetheless, Wanda has lastly grown into her true reality-warping Scarlet Witch powers. Placing it frankly, she acts way more just like the Actuality Stone than the Actuality Stone itself has operated within the MCU up to now, with it first showing in Thor: The Darkish World however not really showing to change actuality in any approach. With Wanda’s formidable capacity to vary and remodel actuality, she’s virtually turn into one thing akin to a manifestation of the Actuality Stone itself.
Imaginative and prescient – Thoughts Stone (Yellow Powers)
Imaginative and prescient simply attracts essentially the most direct parallel between an Infinity Stone and his powers. The Thoughts Stone presently in Imaginative and prescient’s brow might have given Scarlet Witch her powers nevertheless it gave Imaginative and prescient precise life. It’s the stone embedded in his head that powers him and provides him consciousness and free will. In consequence, his powers manifest in a golden hue, which makes excellent sense contemplating the place he attracts his power from.
Nonetheless, one thing attention-grabbing has occurred to Imaginative and prescient in WandaVision – past him being lifeless after which resurrected. Within the MCU motion pictures thus far, Imaginative and prescient’s powers have been proven to be extra science and physics-based, with the flexibility to shoot a beam of highly effective power from the Thoughts Stone in his head and to vary his molecular construction to be able to section via stable objects. In WandaVision, his powers function much more like magic, and so they’re all mind-based, precisely as Scarlet Witch’s was. He nonetheless has the ability of flight, however outdoors of that, each time he is used his energy in WandaVision, it has been in his signature shade of yellow and has dealt straight with affecting folks’s minds, whether or not to drag them out of the fog of magical thoughts management or to subdue them once more. In that sense, he is appeared to turn into an extension of the Thoughts Stone that powers him.
Agnes/Agatha Harkness – Energy Stone (Purple Powers)
In some methods, Agnes, who was revealed to be the traditional witch Agatha Harkness in WandaVision episode 7, has a tie to the Infinity Stones that seems to be merely symbolic on the floor. She is, in any case, the one answerable for Westview and so she’s the one who holds all the ability. The purple of her magic at work thus symbolically aligns with the concept of the Energy Stone.
Nonetheless, Agatha has proven herself to be fairly straight manifesting energy, as nicely. Episode 7 revealed Westview to be a nexus, a supply of nice energy within the Marvel comics, which maybe explains why Wanda’s powers have all of the sudden exponentially elevated in important methods. The episode additionally confirmed that Agatha was drawing straight from it, with the purple tendrils of her magic sinking roots into the nexus and showing to attract power straight from the magical hub – and it has made her highly effective, certainly. Quite a few instances, Wanda has defended herself to Imaginative and prescient, explaining that although she might management many issues, she is by no means sturdy sufficient to regulate each single particular person on the town. Agatha, because it seems, is. It is a show of uncooked magical energy that’s unprecedented within the MCU, and Agatha drawing energy from the nexus has turned her into one thing virtually like a battery of magical power, or a manifestation of the uncooked potential of the Energy Stone.
Monica Rambeau – House Stone (Blue Powers)
At first look, Monica Rambeau would not look like significantly magical in her origins. It was confirmed earlier that, as a substitute, passing via Scarlet Witch’s Hex barrier had began to rewrite her DNA. However in a approach, Monica as a superhero is a creation of Scarlet Witch, if solely secondhand. It was Wanda’s Hex that began to mutate Monica, so one might argue Monica Rambeau’s powers are magic-adjacent. It is also price noting that the Hex was shaped not of pure manifested magic, however of one thing recognized as containing cosmic microwave background radiation.
As such, it is smart for Monica’s powers to parallel the House Stone. Whereas she would not manifest an inner energy signature, nonetheless, episode 7 revealed that her eyes flip a shade of sensible blue when she’s utilizing her new, energy-based powers. Monica is now basically a dwelling illustration of a unique which means of “house,” not of house as in distance, however house as in outer house. She has sturdy ties to astrophysics and aeronautical work with S.W.O.R.D., and, certainly, has had a hyperlink to outer house ever since she was a woman having a historical past with Carol Danvers. She clothes in a spacesuit and drives a S.W.O.R.D. house rover into the Hex barrier within the try that lastly rewrote her DNA and gave her powers for good. These powers have been brought on by cosmic radiation and manifest equally. All the things about Monica Rambeau makes her a toddler of house, and thus the proper avatar of the House Stone.
That leaves simply two Infinity Stone energies unaccounted for.
Physician Unusual -Time Stone (Inexperienced Powers)
If one accepts the concept that sure characters within the MCU have become the manifestations of the destroyed Infinity Stones, or, maybe extra precisely, the brand new containers for that energy, it means two extra stones have but to be rehoused: The Soul Stone and the Time Stone. It is a truthful guess to imagine the Time Stone will as soon as once more find yourself with Physician Unusual, whose powers are huge and thus bodily manifest in a multifold variety of methods. Nonetheless, the great physician’s magical powers have usually been the identical shade of inexperienced because the Time Stone he wore round his neck, particularly if he was utilizing it to faucet into any time-based magic. His common magical “protect” could also be a golden-yellow shade, however something associated to time magic is all the time marked in emerald inexperienced.
Mephisto – Soul Stone (Orange Powers)
The reemergence of the Soul Stone is considerably tougher to foretell, as no character presently within the MCU has an apparent hyperlink to it or any soul-based powers or magical talents. Nonetheless, Mephisto has been referenced all through WandaVision, even perhaps because the overarching villain of MCU Part 4, and his whole raison d’être is the harvesting and enslavement of human souls. Of the Infinity Stones proven to date within the MCU, the Soul Stone has been the least explored. Thanos acquired it however then instantly added it to the Infinity Gauntlet; it was the one one of many stones to not get a separate displaying of its energy or how precisely it might be used. Nonetheless, its power continues to be arguably floating on the market within the cosmic ether; it is solely a matter of time earlier than it reappears in a brand new kind. Mephisto, as a hell dimension-based demon whose fiery powers have been depicted within the comics a whole lot of instances as orange flames, can be a powerfully becoming vessel for the Soul Stone. Whether or not it occurs in WandaVision or an upcoming MCU Part Four film or TV present stays to be seen, and, once more, it is fully possible the colours are only a stylistic alternative on behalf of the artwork division. Nonetheless, it is fascinating that such a powerful parallel could be drawn between the characters positioned as being a number of the strongest within the MCU in the meanwhile, if not shifting ahead, and the Infinity Stones.
