Warning: This article contains spoilers for The Marvels.
We all know by now how much the MCU loves its loud space jewelry. After all, the entire Infinity Saga was built around Thanos finding the perfect gems to take his golden gloves with him. So far, the Multiverse Saga has mostly worn that formula, and here’s why The Marvels he felt very at ease as his suit went around in search of a pair of newly-mixed great accessories.
To be specific, ubervillain Dar-Benn spends the film desperate to get his hands on the other Quantum Band, which just happens to be resting on Kamala Khan’s wrist. Yes, we finally have a name for those introduced bangles Ms. Marvel to unlock Kamala’s powers. But what exactly are Quantum Bands? Here’s everything you need to know about the rich Marvel Comics history of bangles.
The Quantum Bands, explained
The Marvels which reveals that the Quantum Bands are Kree legend, ancient artifacts of immense power used to create the vast network of Jump Points that allow Kree ships to open windows through the cosmos to allow instant cross-space travel. As we know from Ms. Marvel, one ended up in the temple of Ten Rings on Earth and was found at the hands of a dead Kree by Kamala’s hidden grandmother, Aisha. It was Dar-Benn who finally got the other one off an abandoned planet.
In the comics, the origin of the Quantum Bands is much different. Created by Eon, son of Eternity (as seen in Thor: Love and Thunder), the bands were awarded to those chosen champions known as the Defenders of the Universe and worn by everyone in this distinct line of heroes, except for the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell. Band winners include Marvel Boy, Quasar, and Phyla-Vell. Yep, they’re basically Marvel’s answer to DC’s Green Lantern Power Rings.
As the Quantum Bands join Ant-Man, Thanos, the Eternals, and more
The further history of the Quantum Bands may not be explained and they will be seen again as Kamala’s right hand band, but if Marvel wanted to it could easily use the Quantum Bands to inspire many more stories. They would be especially ripe for the spark Eternal sequel, if the studio was really interested in something, one that showed the origin of Thanos and his brother Eros Harry Styles.
In ancient times, the Eternal Kronos transformed the Quantum Bands into wedding rings and gave them to his son A’Lars and his bride Sui-San to commemorate their wedding. The power of the bonds allowed the couple to conceive children in the traditional way, despite the artificial biology of Eternals, and Sui-San gave birth to two boys, Thanos and Eros. Unfortunately, the child-making powers of the Quantum Bands were apparently a little odd because while one of them was a cute Cosmic pirate boy the other grew up to be Space Hitler. Brothers, amiright?
And if you’re wondering about the name, indeed, the Quantum Bands get their power from the Quantum Zone, better known as the Quantum Field in the MCU. This was not specified in The Marvelsbut see as Ant-Man and the Wasp indicating that anything with “Quantum” in the name is connected to the Quantum Realm we can easily assume this is the case on screen as well. Whether this will be explored in time, who knows. Perhaps the Quantum Bands could be the key to defeating Kang Game Avengers: Secret Warsjust as the Quantum Field was stopping Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
