We don't see what Loki is up to on the "other side" --- presumably Thanos' throne --- at the beginning of Avengers, so we can't say for sure whether the Spear had any power at that point. I've always assumed that Loki teleported *himself* into the JDEM/SHIELD lab, since he's known to have the "plane-walking" ability. Then, once the Spear was in the same room as the Tesseract, it absorbed its power.

Could be. Would definitely give writers an excuse to give the shield --- and Cap, for that matter --- some uber powers, if they wanted to.

I wonder if this means there's a second cube, linked to the first, in Thanos' possession... Which raises questions about the fate of a certain other villain.
I wouldn't think Thanos has the/*a* Tesseract (yet). That was his (alleged) motive in the Avengers --- he wanted Loki to give him the Cube in exchange for a mercenary army. When Loki's plan fell through, and Thanos still didn't have the Cube, he probably started his plan to make good on his "no barren moon" threat in hunting Loki down.

BTW, spoiler-tag it, but for those of you who've already seen TDW, did we see the Tesseract in that movie, and learn what they did with it after they took it back to Asgard?


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
