Phillips rose to the rank of colonel in the United States Army, heading the S.S.R. and the 107th Infantry Regiment during World War II, and later co-founding S.H.I.E.L.D. He was the deciding factor in the Super Soldier program, which led Steve Rogers to become Captain America.
- The timing of the Agent Carter one-shot film conflicts with season one of the Agent Carter TV series, although Phillips role in recruiting Cater to S.H.I.E.L.D. may still be relevant. Indeed, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode "Meet the New Boss" seems to retcon the one-shot film from 1945 to 1949.
