Mirage is a calm, decisive femme fatale who thrives upon power, but seems to put her desire for power in check at times, unlike Syndrome, who did not know his limits.
Mirage is an attractive woman with platinum blonde hair, tanned skin, and green eyes; with a penchant for expensive clothes.
At first, Mirage respected Syndrome as her leader, this would later change. Even though she seems to share Syndrome's willingness for casualties and collateral damage- be they supers used in Syndrome's weapons testing or civilians caught in the omnidroid's rampage - she was clearly ill at ease with Syndrome opening fire on Elastigirl's plane when she learned children were aboard. Her taste for calculation and betrayal however reaches its limits when Syndrome uses her as a bargaining chip. It is strongly implied that Mirage and Syndrome may have had some sort of relationship, but this is never confirmed.
"Mirage" is a pseudonym; her real name is currently unknown. She is Syndrome's seductive right-hand woman, who aided him in the murder of Gazerbeam and many other superheroes during Project Kronos. She had been conducting surveillance on Frozone for some time in an attempt to make him Syndrome's next murder victim; however, when she spots Frozone with his good friend Mr. Incredible, Mirage recommends to Syndrome that they put Frozone on hold and instead target Mr. Incredible, given Syndrome's hatred of Mr. Incredible. She slips a message to Bob Parr on his last day at Insuracare telling him of lucrative superhero work shortly after he is fired by Gilbert Huph. Mr. Incredible, both eager to resume his superhero glory days and in need of money to support his family now that he is unemployed, accepts Mirage's offer. Mirage asks Mr. Incredible to deactivate renegade Omnidroid robots, actually a front for testing their capabilities. Mirage eventually switches sides when Syndrome's callous disregard for human life becomes apparent in attacking the jet plane carrying Helen and the children to Nomanisan Island and in his disregarding her directly when Mr. Incredible threatens to kill her (even though Syndrome called his bluff). Mirage then contacts Mr. Incredible, advising him to "Say please" when they need to get back to town but lack computer passwords, her second betrayal of Syndrome's organization in just a few hours.
The Incredibles (Comic Book)
Mirage has since joined the NSA as an agent. When Xerek becomes active again in Europe, she and Helen are assigned to work together against the diminutive supervillain's schemes. When discovering Helen's past with Xerek and how she's keeping this from the rest of the family, Mirage points out that she's doing exactly the same thing Bob was doing to Helen's chagrin. Arriving in Paris, they face Bomb Voyage and a group of mercenaries, though they are outnumbered. Helen pursues Bomb Voyage to Xerek's lair, with Mirage meeting her there. After Xerek's small goal of wanting to lure Helen out under the assumption she missed the thrill of the old days and him, both heroes just laugh and Xerek is arrested as Mirage manages to offer his mercenaries better pay.
- Mirage is similar to several James Bond villainesses, especially ones such as Pussy Galore and Andrea Anders who, like her, eventually defect from their truly evil employers.
- Among all Disney villains that "turn good", Mirage, though "merely" being an accomplice in all of the murders she participated in, has the highest known body count, and she is never majorly punished for these several counts of willing accessory to murder.
- Mirage's business card is a play against her name, the text displayed on it only visible in an ephemeral manner when tilted.
