Phil has his original series appearance, but he wears black Proto-Tech armor. His colors match the color palette of Heroes United.
Phil has his Omniverse appearance, but his colors match the color palette of Heroes United.
First and foremost, Phil cares about himself about anything else. While he usually relies on criminal activities to ensure he stays on top, he is not above doing good deeds, as seen when he fought Magister Gorvan to prevent him from killing the Amalgam Kids to get in some of the other Rooters' good graces.
Prior to Bonds
Phil was originally a Plumber who served as Max Tennyson's partner during their first fight with Vilgax. He helped Max defeat him by serving as a distraction for Max to glue Vilgax to a nuclear missile and launch it at his ship.
Phil later went through the same events as his canon equivalent as depicted in the episode Truth. Several months later, Phil was captured by Dr. Psychobos, Malware, and Khyber, who forcefully used him as a guinea pig for the Nemetrix's test run against Ben as Terroranchula. However, the test failed miserably, due to the fact that sapient life forms, like humans, cannot handle the savage mindset of the Nemetrix predators. Shortly thereafter, Phil was thrown back into the Null Void by Dr. Psychobos.
He was found by the Rooters and was considered useful enough to become a member.
In Verge, a bounty hunter named Disease found Trystan Wheels, for whom the Rooters had issued a manhunt in 1994, on Revonnah and brought him to an undisclosed location. The Rooters retrieved him and brought him back to Rooter Headquarters. Not wanting to split their attention between Trystan and the Amalgam Kids, they canceled the kids' next mission and ordered Servantis to break the news. Phil joined the other Rooters in a meeting where Magister Wheels, Trystan's wife and a member of the Rooters, offered to kill Trystan. Dissatisfied with the explanation given to them on why their mission was canceled, the kids decided to snoop around to get answers by disabling the camera in the elevator to access the restricted levels.
Magister Gorvan made an announcement that Helen had taken Trystan out of the interrogation room in which he was held, and Phil set out to find her with Magister Chang. They soon found Servantis, Magister Coronach and the Amalgam Kids in the operating room (with Helen and Pierce unconscious) and demanded to know the truth, but Servantis and Magister Coronach lied. Magister Gorvan came shortly after that and revealed that he found Magister Wheels' body, and that he killed Trystan. To balance the scales, he intended to kill Servantis and the Amalgam Kids, as he claimed they were of no use because Magister Wheels, who came up with the idea in the first place, was dead. Magister Chang agreed, but Magister Coronach and Phil did not. Phil transformed into his Terroranchula form and trapped Magister Chang in a web before engaging in a battle with Magister Gorvan with Alan's help.
Magister Gorvan eventually lost and the Amalgam Kids were sent to Earth. Phil later participated in a meeting with the other Rooters. Servantis was present as well as an official member, replacing Magister Wheels. Magister Leander arrived late, bringing with him Magistrata Latdu. She explained that she used to be a Rooter herself, but she left to focus on the Plumbers as a whole. Displeased with the direction the Rooters had gone in her absence, she officially declared herself the leader and intended to make major changes. Intrigued by Servantis' role in the organization, she urged him to tell her everything that had transpired since he was forced to work for them.
Powers and Abilities
Even before his mutation at the hands of the Nemetrix, Phil has had years of Plumber training to his merit.
Phil can shift between his human and Terroranchula forms. While transformed, Phil has the enhanced strength, speed, hearing, durability, and agility of an ordinary Terroranchula.
Terroranchula Phil can absorb energy and redirect it as a blast with twice the power it originally had. His teeth is also strong enough to crush a manhole cover in this form.
Phil can shoot energy webs similar to those of an ordinary Terroranchula from his hands.
Despite his Terroranchula form's durability, Phil can experience discomfort from being bitten by a Piscciss Volann.
Terroranchula Phil can be incapacitated by Argit's quills.
- Verge (first appearance)
- At one point, Driscoll was meant to be featured in the series as a member of the Rooters. However, once it was decided that there was no logical way to explain him surviving Upchuck's Sub-Energy blast in Ben 10 vs. the Negative 10: Part 2 (despite him doing so in the canon timeline), he was replaced with Phil. As it stands, in this timeline, Driscoll is dead.
