When World War II erupted, US army General Chester Phillips was appointed Director of the a new military organization, the Strategic Scientific Reserve. He worked with Dr. Abraham Erskine in selecting candidates for Project: Rebirth. At Camp Lehigh, Dr. Erskine suggest that Steve Rogers would be the best suitable candidate but General Phillips preferred Private Gilmore Hodge instead. In one training exercise, Phillips throws a grenade at the recruits. Steve Rogers commits a self-sacrificing act of bravery by covering the grenade with his body. With that, Phillips is impressed and reluctantly agrees with Dr. Erskine to select Rogers.
In a secret SSR facility, General Phillips welcome members of the Congress and Senator William Brandt, who is funding the SSR, along with his delegates. During the procedure, Rogers was in extreme pain but emerges taller and more muscular. Senator Brandt congratulates General Phillips but one of the attendees shoots Dr. Erskine and steals the last remaining serum. Phillips orders his men to secure the Senator while Agent Peggy Carter pursues the assassin. Phillips tends to Erskine, who has died in the arms of Rogers.
