Illusion-Casting: Although Desmond Charne has no special powers of his own, the suit which he wears gives him the ability to cast powerful holographic illusions. He employs this so that he can disguise himself and others within his vicinity, affect light waves to make himself and/or the space around him invisible, and to create 8 simultaneous duplicates of himself.
Desmond Charne was a holography technician who wanted to become a costumed criminal whose methods would be as impressive as the superhuman abilities of the masked crime fighter Spider-Man. In pursuit of this goal, Charne spent years studying electronics and the use of laser technology to produce three-dimensional images called holograms. Charne not only mastered existing holographic techniques but also secretly made further advances in the field himself. As a result, he designed a costume containing miniaturized equipment that enabled him to project holographic images. Dubbing himself the Mirage, he hired some accomplices and embarked on a series of major robberies.
