The mutant known as Arclight, Philippa Sontag used to serve with the American ground forces in Vietnam. The experience proved traumatic for her and she’s still haunted by the memories from that place. After returning home she redirected her rage into body building, which further augmented her mutant abilities after which she started to work as a mercenary.

Some time in the past she was recruited by Mr. Sinister to join his group the Marauders, the largest collection of superhuman slayers ever assembled, and has since been part in all the major operations of Sinister (including the Morlock Massacre). Quite soon she became a couple with her teammate Scalphunter, which probably is the only person she cares about. Arclight continues as a henchman of Mr. Sinister and like all the other Marauders she’s been brought back from death several times by replacing her with an identical clone of the original. She seems to be on the Marauders team on a permanent basis, much like teammates Harpoon, Malice, Scalphunter and Scrambler.
