The Terrible Templar
Not much is known about Dr. Phillip Vurnier. He’s been a figure on the fringe of the Earth-727 meta-human scene since long before the DOJI was formed. Several years ago, he was responsible for an attack on the school where Phoenix taught, killing twelve students and injuring more than 30. The trauma from this incident seems to have been the trigger for Phoenix’s mutant powers to activate, but it also led to PTSD and her dismissal from her job at the school.
