Correct, there are several Gauntlets in each universe. All held by the Reed Richards of their time in some weird ass council.

F*** Reed Richards
I don't buy that writers crap about him being all up on mystic stuff like the Gauntlet and Gems 
It's ridiculous
 Reed from any reality is supposed to be a man of logic, a man of experiments and gadgets not some witch doctor obsessed with collecting the Universe's magic trinkets
 
That's why some of these Fan4 stories suck, they make him the witch doctor supreme and send him off to a random part of the cosmos when they should be keeping him in-character as a scientist and have his stories closer to Earth with Sue or Ben

Censor LOL
 
But Space / Science and Gadgets are the essence of the F4, ever since.

Little hard to dismiss magic when you're on the same team as the Sorcerer Supreme....

They're not. They're Cosmic. But Mystic and Cosmic can be lumped into the same category as Supernatural (though Cosmic has more science involved in it)

No Reed was very  dismissive of Magic, he built rockets, time vehicles, atom smashers,  shrink ray guns and some kind of fortress alarm system for their house...he made weird things over the years but everything was SCIENCE based. That's what Reed does, he builds, he doesn't collect mystic gems and wave some magic wand around...its not his style, he is about science and logic 
 
Reed and Strange have never fought on the same team, in fact Reed often has trouble facing down magicians because he dismisses the stuff they do as random fake hocus pocus. The only time Reed and Strange ever work together is at some Illuminati meeting and both of them sit at opposite ends of the table

 We're forgetting the Illuminati, aren't we?
 
Besides, he doesn't actually use the gems. Should he just say "Hey, I'm a man of science! These mystical objects that killed half the people in the universe and defeated almost every being in the 616 Universe are worthless!" then? He realizes they are threats.
 
Also, Doom is a sorcerer. He also visited the afterlife once, I believe, in chase of Thing (don't have the issue or remember the details).
 
With everything he's seen, he'd be ignorant if he ignored it all.

Yeah I mentioned them all right
"The only time Reed and Strange ever work together is at some Illuminati meeting and both of them sit at opposite ends of the table"
 
Anyway I  would kinda defer to Watcher's opinion on this one, he turns up breaks his Watcher code of silence during an
Illuminati meeting , says the Gems are out of Reeds league, says he expected more from Reed and said something like in Reed's attempt to try to crack the meaning of the Gems he would end up destroying the Earth...or something to that effect

The reason Doom can be such a major pain in the butt for Reed is not because of his gadgets or robots, its because his magic trumps anything Reed got...Reed dismisses it as stage show tricks, magic is not something he can explain
 
I might buy Reed having some base knowledge of cosmic/spiritual stuff 
Thing afterlife...maybe its semi spiritual...or maybe its the way the brain or your hard drive shuts down...and provides you with a vivid dream before you die...I'm sure Reed might have a rational text book explanation
 
but anything Mystical or Magical, making Reed an expert on that, its out of character...and it sucks

I love how the watcher would consider the Infinity gems out of Reed's league, but was more than happy to hand him the freaking Ultimate Nullifier. Yeah, right.

So it only does work in one Universe?  It makes scence because Thanos didn't kill half the Multiverse just half the Universe.   Also if he were a Multiverseal threat wouldn't it had said that in the comics instead of it saying, that he was dangerous to the Universe?
