In 1947, Dennis Gabor, Hungarian physicist, discovered the hologram and came about as an accident during research in electron microscopes. Holography continued to evolved, especially with the invention of lasers in 1960. The first known recorded 3-D hologram was by Yuri Denisyuk, of the Soviet Union, in 1962. In general, light is scattered from an object onto a recording medium then a second light illuminates the recording medium.

Holograms were technology abused by several villains over the years such as the Instigator, the Preserver, Luminus, Mirror Master, Spellbinder, and the Joker. In particular, Luminus manipulates laser fields to solidify holograms and essentially clone himself. Brute force will dissolve the hologram but a large group of these holograms can easily overwhelm an unprepared person.
