Since he was a kid, Phil "Cheese" Coulson was obsessed with super heroes. As he grew up, he would constantly study and keep track of them, having created his own database for super humans.
A ranger in Afghanistan, Coulson battled alongside his friend Marcus Johnson, and faced the fear when the Serpent took over Earth.
When Johnson's mother was killed, he returned to the U.S.A to be with his friend. But Johnson was the target of Orion to use his blood to regain his immortality, revealing Johnson as the son of Nick Fury. Cheese helped his friend in destroying Leviathan, and was made an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. alongside him.
Some time later, Coulson accompanied Fury to meet with a traveler from the future who described the origins of several superheroes before launching an attack on a battalion of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Coulson managed to disable the traveler. He later joined S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Secret Avengers initiative, and was responsible for the recruitment of its first members.
Months after joining S.H.I.E.L.D., Coulson became their supreme commander for Special Ops.
