The MCU has shown us a variety of fictional and mysterious planets over the course of several movies. Some have just been mentioned in conversation while others have been depicted on screen. Let’s explore 10 of the most interesting planets that we have known in the MCU.
The planet of Vormir is located at the center of Celestial existence. It is a completely remote and inhabited planet. It’s said to be the sixth planet in the Helgentar system. As seen in the MCU during Infinity Wars and Endgame, it houses the Soul Stone. Moreover, the Soul Stone is protected by Red Skull who was cursed and banished to Vormir. Gamora was tasked by Thanos to find the location of the stone and she found a map to Vormir. Both Gamora and Black Widow met their demise here. Despite all the death, 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 oceanic planet that houses the orb of the power stone. 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 flourishing with life and civilization until all was destroyed by global warming. The temple that guards the orb was created by the people of Morag before they perished and Morag went under water. In fact, the Power Stone can only be retrieved ever 300 years when the water ebbs
This is the artificial planet for the symbiote hive. Its location is not given on any map and is mostly unknown. Klyntar even has symbiote dependent flaura and fauna in the form of forests.
This planet was seen in the MCU during Guardian vol 2. The various Ravager clans find their entertainment here. It is a cold and snowy planet but also a pretty crazy here. From love bots to gamblers you can find everything in Contraxia. This is also where Rocket Racoon won the prosthetic eyeball that he later gave to Thor.
Morag wasn’t the first planet where Thanos looked for the orb. Praxius IX was the planet where Thanos initially though the Orb was hidden. Nebula and Gamora went to the planet’s cloud tombs which were floating above. However, this planet has traps, just like Rhodey wanted. In fact, The tombs are guarded by advanced defense systems.
We saw this planet in the MCU during Guardians vol 2 and it will most likely play an important role in the upcoming MCU project, Guardians vol 3. The Sovereign is a group of planets where the inhabitants are genetically engineered to suit the needs of the planet in a birthing chamber.
This is one of the coolest planets in the MCU in my opinion. It is the severed head of a Celestial. We see Knowhere in the MCU during Guardians vol 1 and Infinity Wars. There’s a lot of mining activities that take place here due to the valuable nature of the bone, brain tissue and spinal fluid. Knowhere is also where the Collector lives. Evidently, this planet has absolutely no rules or regulations and has many criminals and outlaws living there.
This is the land of the Dwarves. Nidavellir’s furnaces can create unimaginably powerful weapons including the infinity gauntlet, Mjolnir and Stormbreaker. It is a part of the ten realms and surrounds a neutron star. In the MCU, Nidavellir was depicted during Infinity Wars.
It was seen in the MCU during Thor, an icy cold planet that housed the Frost Giants. It has perpetual winters and is completely barren with very little to no warmth. Furthermore, there’s the Well of Crimson Waters which is filled with Asgardian blood belonging to every warrior that died on Jotunheim
As the name reads, this is the home planet of the Chitauri race of aliens that had attacked New York in the MCU during Avengers. It is one of the most secure planets and is surrounded by a number of warships. As a matter of fact, Chitauri Prime is famous for its gladiatorial games similar to that in Sakaar.
