Warning: This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War Prelude #2.

Marvel fans might have been hoping to learn more about the Soul Stone in Black Panther, however director Ryan Coogler didn’t even try to touch the topicT’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) first standalone movie.

Though it’s such a shame that Black Panther didn’t give away the location of the sixth Infinity Stone, Marvel comics has a bit of information about the Soul Stone in Will Corona Pilgrim and Jorge Fornes’ Avengers: Infinity War Prelude #2, the second issue in a series that serves as a lead in to the Russo Brother’s two-part Avengers movie.

Serving as a primer for the Infinity Stones, Infinity Prelude #2, the comic has Wong (Benedict Wong) explaining the different attributes and whereabouts of the different Infinity Stones to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch)  In this issue of the series, fans get a recap of films in the MCU relevant to the Infinity Stones like Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: Ragnarok.

While Wong doesn’t have a film to serve as an introduction for the Soul Stone, Wong talks a bit about the Infinity Stone in the comic.

“Little is known about the sixth and final stone — the Soul Stone — but if what is known turns out to be true, it could prove to be the biggest threat of them all,” Wong tells the Sorcerer Supreme.

Though Strange’s response is a reassurance that the Earth will be safe if the Infinity Stones are kept apart, fans all know that that’s not going to happen at all in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Thanos is going to lay his hands on all the Stones and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are going to be in a world of trouble.

Avengers: Infinity War premieres May 4.
