Philo's Uncle Victor was the gardener for the Sicilian Mafia. After his uncle died the head of the Sicilian Mafia took Philo in and trained him to be an assassin. Feeling a debt to the Sicilian, Zeiss agreed to have surgery on his spinal column and optic nerves which gave him superhuman speed, sight and reflexes. Zeiss eventually relocated to Gotham City and began to work for Lew Moxon. However, he and Moxon had a falling out and Moxon fired him.


Several years later Zeiss returned to Gotham and abducted Mallory Moxon in order to get revenge on Lew Moxon.
