Mirage used a device that created illusions.
Desmond Charne was a former holography technician who wanted to be a supervillain. To that end, he used holograph technology which could make him invisible or create 3-D illusions.
He made his criminal debut at Betty Brant and Ned Leeds' wedding, intent to rob them, but Spider-Man interfered. After a lengthy battle, Spider-Man defeated Mirage by dropping a chandelier on him.
Mirage has also fought Daredevil, who also defeated him.
Mirage attended a meeting at a "Bar With No Name" in Ohio to discuss the killing of costumed criminals by the Scourge of the Underworld. He was killed along with the other criminals who attended. Captain America, who was investigating the killings, had the news reports lie that Mirage survived as part of a ploy to lure the Scourge into a trap. Dressed as Mirage, Captain America captured Scourge.
Using Charne's DNA, former Nazi scientist Arnim Zola created a proto-husk of Mirage. It was killed by Deadpool.
The Hood resurrected Mirage (and many other victims of Scourge) to kill the Punisher. Mirage and the others planned to confront the Punisher disguised as members of the Avengers. The Punisher saw through this plot and attacked the group. Mirage survived.
After joining the Owl's Sinister Sixteen, he helped in fighting a gang of Chameleon's men while Boomerang stole from him. Mirage was knocked out and impersonated by Chameleon, who was busted by Boomerang. Later, Boomerang pushed Mirage off a building, killing him.
Charne was resurrected again by the Jackal (Ben Reilly) at New U. Yet again, he would die, this time due to clone degeneration.
