Event Timeline



Las Vegas based hero who was a member of Honor Guard.


He can fire energy blasts and in later appearances he has shown the ability to become intangible.


It's not known what his full range of powers are, but his costume consists of neon colors which might suggest certain things along those lines. He fires blasts from his hands that, appropriately enough, very much resemble barrages of laser beams. He travels around on a floating platform of some sort, which he can tilt up much like a skateboard to shield from blasts.
He can also phase. In the mid-80s, he was still getting used to this ability, so it would seem to have been a relatively recent discovery at the time.

Speculations, Theories

There is the possibility that there have been several people under the mask. Mirage was active from at least 1964 until 1984.
Mirage and the Silver Agent seemed like they didn't really know one another in 1984, but yet Mirage and the Silver Agent were both Honor Guard members for at least ten years together.
