Vormir is a remote barren planet at the very center of celestial existence within the Universe, where the Soul Stone was located.
Eventually being forced to reveal the location of the Soul Stone upon seeing her sister Nebula being tortured, Thanos took Gamora to Vormir to find it. Reaching the mountains, they were greeted by the Red Skull. He explained that the only way to acquire the Soul Stone was to give up one's "soul", but it had to be the soul of someone he loved. Gamora laughed saying that Thanos never felt a thing for anyone but himself just to find him crying, as he pulls her into the abyss. Thanos sacrificed Gamora in anguish, weeping for her, while earning the Soul Stone for his Infinity Gauntlet soon afterward.
During the Avengers' Time Heists, Black Widow and Hawkeye were in charge of collecting the Soul Stone and headed to Vormir. There they find out by word of Red Skull that the only way to obtain the Infinity Stone is by giving away the life of a beloved one. Both Romanoff and Barton were determined to sacrifice so the other could get the stone and had a fight over who should stay alive and return with it, however, after a tense struggle, Natasha won and decided to sacrifice herself falling into the abyss, allowing Barton to obtain the stone soon afterward.
- In the comics, Vormir is the sixth planet in the Helgentar system, and home to the Vorms.
