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

Robert Kelly was a United States Senator who began his career on an anti-mutant platform against all mutants and was tuned into a mutate.



"Well, I think you've got... one less person to... to be afraid of..."
―Kelly's last words[src]
Kelly is staunchly anti-mutant, arguing that they are a danger to "normal" people and should be locked away. He is kidnapped by Magneto's minion Mystique and is subjected to a process that transforms him into a mutant. Unbeknownst to Magneto, the process is ultimately fatal, with his body rejecting the process, and Kelly (now in a malleable jellyfish-like form who has power to stretch and be easily squished if pressure is applied) dies in the custody of the X-Men by evaporating into water. Prior to his death, he learns to accept at the very least "some" Mutants and is comforted by Storm.

X2: X-Men United

Mystique disguised herself as Kelly to continue using the Senator's political power to promote a pro-mutant agenda.
