> Even though the Illuminati know what the gems are, they don't know how to use them well (if at all in most cases). Plus, the Illuminati series revealed that if you can get one gem, it will lead you to the other ones since the gems "communicate" with each other. Plus, much of the Illuminati aren't at the top of their game currently:
> 1)Xavier memories and mind aren't fully back to normal yet and he has no base of operations right now and none of the tech the X-Men have.
Still capable of defeating Exodus in a telepathic fight. and chuck is big into having secret recourses he keeps away from the X.
| > 2)Atlantis was recently destroyed so Namor's Kingdom isn't at full force|
> 3)Dr. Strange isn't at full power as a result of WWH
I do conceid that I didn't take those into count, of course BB's gem might very well be on a skrull. Another equalizer is the personal power gap between Doom & Thanos.
all in all I'd say that Doom pilfering the Gems from the Illuminati is an equivelent feat to Thanos getting them from the elders given that the elders were unprepared for someone coming for the gems and didn't know what they had and Thanos having a higher level of personal power.
as for the rest we'd have to see what Doom can do with them. Even if they don't work in unison to allow for transmultiveral power the 6 gems working on there own in dooms hands is scary enough.
