The first episode of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest and highly-anticipated Disney+ series, Loki, has finally premiered on Disney+, and it took less than one episode for the show to completely reorganize the power structure within the franchise.

Warning: spoilers for the first episode of Loki will follow.

As Loki is giving the Time Variance Authority the run-around across their headquarters, he stumbles upon a drawer filled with  Infinity Stones, previously considered to be the most powerful objects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And not only are they’re about a dozen of them, but they’re literally useless in the TVA, as most of the “staff” have been using them as paperweights.

And just like that, the power scale in the MCU was upended — a franchise that has spent more than a decade highlighting the importance of the Infinity Stones has now just declared their insignificance in the grand scheme of things.
