I'm honestly getting tired of the whole Infinity Gem thing. I mean, I get that it's the metaplot tying the movies together, but it's turning from an overarcing thing into pic related.
Weird Nazi tech? Powered by an Infinity Gem. Arc Reactor? Created after studying said Infinity Gem. Sentient AI? Infinity Gem.
At this point the only characters that can't trace their powers back to an Infinity Gem at some point are Thor, Cap, Hulk, and the unpowereds. (Assuming that Falcon's flightsuit is based on Stark tech, though they've never specified that so maybe him.) And frankly I wouldn't be shocked at this point that Asgardian magitech is powered by an Infinity Gem (Thor's bit in Avengers seems to imply this anyway) and that the creator of the super soldier formula got the idea from one somehow, which would link both Cap and the Hulk.
Eh. I'm probably making a bigger deal of it than it is. I'm just kind of annoyed at the extent
everything seems to be revolving around these plot coupons.
