Subj: Once, I tried to find a tao logic behing the rings (yin/yang +fundamental forces of nature) but it is too hard to synthesize into a single concept ...

Reply Subj: Re: IMO, their power level should be compared to the Rogues' weapons (cold gun, heat gun, ...) and Ben 10's alien wristwatch

    My headcanon is the rings were originally created in an attempt to imitate, or replicate, the power of the Infinity Gems to as great an extent as possible.


I don't know if you noticed but Jim Starlin probably imagined the six Infinity Gems as three couples, actually :

- continuum (space + time)
- consciousness (soul + mind)
- conservation (power/energy + reality/matter)

I tried to imagine if it could be possible to apply a similar logic to the rings.

There are four rings which are, obviously, two yin/yang couples :
- White Light / Black Light
- Ice Blast / Fire Blast

I wonder if would be possible to do the same with the other six rings.
Matter / Mind would make sense.

... but Electro / Impact and Vortex / Disintegration, I don't know ...
