The MCU has shown us a variety of fictional and mysterious planets over the course of several films. Some were just mentioned in conversation while others were depicted onscreen. Let’s explore 10 of the most interesting planets we’ve come across in the MCU.
The planet Vormir is located at the center of celestial existence. It is a completely isolated and inhabited planet. It is said to be the sixth planet in the Helgentar system. As seen in the MCU during Infinity Wars and End of Game, it houses the Soul Stone. Additionally, the Soul Stone is protected by Red Skull who was cursed and banished to Vormir. Gamora was tasked by Thanos with finding the Stone’s location, and she found a map of Vormir. Both Gamora and Black Widow met their demise here. Despite all the deaths, the planet is actually quite beautiful.
We saw Morag in the MCU during Guardians of the Galaxy vol 1 and then again during Endgame. Morag is an ocean planet that is home to the Power Stone Orb. It is inhabited by Orioni and other crocodile-like creatures. It is located in the Andromeda galaxy. What’s interesting is that this planet was thriving with life and civilization until it was all destroyed by global warming. The temple that guards the orb was created by the people of Morag before they perished and Morag fell under water. In fact, the Power Stone can only be retrieved 300 years after the water recedes.
It is the artificial planet for the symbiote hive. Its location is not shown on any map and is mostly unknown. Klyntar even has symbiote-dependent flora and fauna in the form of forests.
This planet was seen in the MCU during Guardian vol 2. The different Ravager clans find their entertainment there. It’s a cold and snowy planet but also quite crazy here. From love robots to gamers, you can find it all at Contraxia. This is also where Rocket Racoon won the prosthetic eyeball which he later gave to Thor.
5. Praxius IX
Morag wasn’t the first planet where Thanos sought the orb. Praxius IX was the planet where Thanos originally hid the Orb. Nebula and Gamora traveled to the cloudy tombs of the planet floating above. However, this planet has pitfalls, just like Rhodey intended. In fact, the tombs are guarded by advanced defense systems.
6. The Sovereign
We saw this planet in the MCU during Guardians vol 2 and it will most likely play an important role in the next MCU project, Guardians vol 3. The Sovereign is a group of planets where the inhabitants are genetically modified to suit the needs of the planet . in a birthing room.
It’s one of the coolest planets in the MCU in my opinion. It’s the severed head of a Celestial. We see Knowhere in the MCU during Guardians vol 1 and Infinity Wars. Many mining activities take place here due to the value of bones, brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid. Knowhere is also the collector’s place of residence. Obviously, this planet has absolutely no rules or regulations and has many criminals and outlaws.
This is the country of the Dwarves. The Furnaces of Nidavellir can create incredibly powerful weapons, including the Infinity Gauntlet, Mjolnir, and Stormbreaker. It is one of the ten realms and surrounds a neutron star. In the MCU, Nidavellir was depicted during Infinity Wars.
He was seen in the MCU during Thor, an icy planet that was home to the Frost Giants. It has perpetual winters and is completely barren with very little or no heat. Additionally, there is the Well of Crimson Waters which is filled with Asgardian blood belonging to every warrior who died on Jotunheim
10. Chitauri Prime
As the name suggests, this is the home planet of the alien Chitauri race that attacked New York in the MCU during Avengers. It is one of the safest planets and is surrounded by a number of warships. In fact, Chitauri Prime is famous for its gladiatorial games similar to Sakaar.
