Senator Robert Kelly
"Ladies and gentlemen, the truth is that mutants are very real, and that they are among us. We must know who they are, and above all, what they can do!"
―Senator Kelly[src]

Senator Robert Kelly was a human turned-mutant and the main proponent of the Mutant Registration Act.



Robert Kelly was a US Senator and a major proponent of the Mutant Registration Act. He was captured by Mystique (impersonating his aide Henry Gyrich) and Toad and taken to Genosha as a prisoner. There, he was transformed into a mutant by Magneto's radiation machine.

Using his new-found abilities, Kelly escaped Genosha and eventually arrived at the X-Mansion to receive help. However, the unnatural mutation created by the radiation of Magneto's machine caused his cellular structure to break down. He later de-molecularizes into water and was last seen alive by Storm.

Mystique survives her injury from Wolverine at Liberty Island, impersonates Senator Kelly and calls off the Mutant Registration Act. The X-Men notice her impersonation as Senator Kelly on TV.

Kelly, now impersonated by Mystique, gives others the impression that he is now more supportive of mutant rights.
