AR markers

The three AR markers can be placed anywhere in the play area. When the phone's camera sees them, Thanos and his armies will appear.

Gauntlet with Infinity Stone

The game creates that Iron Man suit effect when it sees your hand is wearing this gauntlet, which has little AR markers of its own.
