Before he met Loki, before discovering Mjolnir, before Tony Stark, Phillip Coulson was just a regular man.
Fresh out of college and barely 22, the agency didn’t think Phil was quite ready to join them so they set him up with a boring nine-to-five and told him his time would come. That pissed Phil off a little considering how eager they were to recruit him five years back, telling him how vital he was, but he let it slide; the job paid well enough and it wasn’t too far from his apartment. He took the job and settled into a bit of a routine, waiting for his time to come.
