The Duke of Deception was an agent of Mars, God of War. He lived on the planet Mars alongside two other confederates named the Count of Conquest and the Earl of Greed and helped to facilitate Mars' efforts to perpetuate a never-ending state of warfare on Earth. He and one of his agents, Naha, attempted to capture the Amazon super-hero Wonder Woman, but this plan failed and the Duke was humiliated for his efforts. The Duke came into unsuccessful conflict with Wonder Woman on a number of further occasions.
