History

When Brian Braddock was first transformed into Captain Britain, the Quarterstaff magically appeared strapped to his back. It appeared to be simply a wooden rod decorated with red, white and blue stripes, but Brian quickly discovered that pressing one of the four buttons on the shaft would cause it to extend itself into a javelin or even a vaulting pole,[1] while pressing a second caused it to project a powerful force field around its wielder.[2] The third button, which Braddock rarely used, caused anything the staff was pointed at to disintegrate,[3] but he apparently never pressed the fourth button to find out what it did, or even noticed that it was there.

When Braddock began to accept the non-scientific nature of his powers, his patron, Merlyn transformed the Staff into the mystical Star Sceptre.[4]
