The Orb is an ancient artifact that contains an Infinity Stone, the Power Stone.
Powers and Abilities
The Orb emits destructive energy by the masses, and is capable of annihilating an entire planet. However, the gem's power is unstable, as merely utilizing it had the potential of destroying its handlers. Its energy can only be channeled through an apparatus of sorts to be used in a concentrated form.
The Orb somehow wound up in planet Morag where it was taken by Star-Lord. Soon, Star-Lord bands together with a group of criminals and travel to Knowhere where they try to sell it to the Collector where the gem is extracted from the orb, until Tivan's assistant becomes tempted by the power and tries to use it for herself, but after the destruction of his museum, it is taken by Ronan the Accuser who uses it to channel power into his weapon. When the hammer was destroyed, the gem is released and used by the Guardians to defeat Ronan. Afterwards, it is inserted into a new container by Gamora. The Orb is entrusted to the Nova Corps on Xandar, who store it in a vault in the city.
The Orb appears in Thor's vision of the Infinity Stones and their connection in the previous years.
The Power Stone was the first of the six Infinity Stones that Thanos managed to retrieve for the Infinity Gauntlet. According to Thor, Thanos managed to acquire the Power Stone at Xandar and killed half the planet's population in the process. Thanos used the stone to threaten Thor's life so Loki would surrender the Tesseract to him, which Loki eventually did. Thanos used the Power Stone on several occasions and on his quest to retrieve all six stones and used it to fight against the Avengers. Upon acquiring all six stones, Thanos snapped his fingers and half the population of the universe became decimated
