(sometimes The Right
) is a fictional organization in the Marvel Comics universe
. The group first appeared in X-Factor
#17 in June 1987.
The Right was secretly founded by Cameron Hodge
, and was dedicated to the extermination of all superpowered mutants
. The Right employed commandos in high-tech flying battle suits of powered armor
with machine guns, missiles, and (presumably to disturb or distract their victims) faceplates resembling a smiley
face. They also employed scientists and inventors such as Nanny
The commandos faced the New Mutants and at least one of them was sent to the demonic realm of Limbo, to undergo various torments.
