When he was young, Jim Tensen became a member of the First Eternity Battalion, where he met and befriended fellow psychic Phil Vogt.[1] Both Tensen and Vogt gained the ability to tap into the Psi-Force after becoming the sole survivors of the unit following an incident in Wundagore Mountain involving Chthonic forces.[2] After being discharged with the termination of the First Eternity Battalion, Tensen began to lead a philosophical seminar meant to train a group of young people to achieve their full mental potential, and access the Psi-Force to become Justice Warriors.

Tensen was called in by Vogt many years later to become a part of his Troubleshooters, a unit of monitoring and reconnaissance for superhuman teams which had been tasked with keeping an eye on the Ultimates.[3]
