OverviewAlong with the Sword of Might, the Amulet of Right is one of the two items offered to the potential candidates for the Captain Britain Corps.
When a new Captain Britain was chosen, Merlyn and Roma offered the choice between two items: the Amulet of Right and the Sword of Might. Which item they choose will affect their overall powers, as well as general costume. Choosing the Amulet represents the path of reason while the Sword represents the path of violence. Generally, Merlyn and Roma seek those who choose the path of the Amulet, but, on occasion, one who chooses the sword may become a Captain Briton.
Following the death of Merlyn, control of Otherworld fell to Roma. Unfortunately, Mastermind impersonated Roma to seized control and obtained the Amulet of Right with plans to concur the cosmos. Mastermind was eventually defeated by Captain Britain and Excalibur.
During the Skrull invasion of Earth, Skrulls raided Otherworld stealing the Amulet of Right, the Sword of Might, and the Holy Grail. These and other magical items were converted into a chain to be worn by one of their mystics. Using Excalibur, Captain Britain was able to defeat and decapitate the Skrull mystic. He also destroyed the magical, converted chain restoring magic.
While visiting Avalon in Otherworld, Captain Britain was infected by Morgan le Fay's magic becoming her dark champion and giving up the Amulet of Right to his sister, Betsy Braddock, who donned the Amulet to become the new Captain Britain. Betsy was eventually able to free Brian from le Fay's control, but because of his trauma, Brian chose the Sword of Might over the Amulet of Right when he was offered the choice again by Merlyn and Roma in a dream. Distraught about his choice, Betsy returned the Amulet to him though she has retained the powers and title of Captain Britain.
- Some of the Captain Britain Corps members to choose the Sword of Might over the Amulet of Right include Albion, Lionheart, and Kid Briton.
