Rebellious and undisciplined and in his youth, Philip Nelson Vogt was sent to military school when he was a teenager. Suffering from depression, Philip volunteered for a test to determine psychic abilities, leading him to be assigned to an experimental unit called the First Eternity Battalion, where he met and befriended James Tensen.
Most of the unit was slaughtered during an incident at a routine deployment in Wundagore Mountain which pitted the First Eternity Battalion against Chthon. Vogt and Tensen became the only two survivors, and gained the ability to tap into the Psi-Force, a quasi-magical force field the unit's leader Emmett Proudhawk had been turned into when he seemingly perished at Chthon's hands. After being discharged, Philip joined the N.S.A. and formed the Troubleshooters, a monitoring and reconnaissance unit meant to keep an eye on superhuman teams, of which Tensen became a member.
