Bio:
Senator Robert Kelly was first seen at a social gathering hosted by the Hellfire Club. He was the primary backer of Project Wideawake and the Mutant Control Act, a government program aimed at creating updated Sentinel robots that would help track down and, if necessary, detain or kill violent mutants.

He played a central role in the Days of Future Past storyline that took place in Uncanny X-Men #141-142 (January-February 1981). The entire plot revolved around the X-Men stopping Mystique and her Brotherhood of Evil Mutants from assassinating Kelly and thus inadvertantly causing a dystopian future.

When he appeared in Uncanny X-Men #246 (July 1989), he had married Sharon, a former maid who worked in the Hellfire Club. Sharon Kelly was killed the next issue, in Uncanny X-Men #247 (August 1989), by the Master Mold. This further incited his stance against mutantkind.

Kelly remained an active anti-mutant activist in the comics through the 1990s, but slowly became more open-minded and tolerant towards the mutant population, promising the X-Men he would work for the rights of mutants during the early 2000s. After his life was saved by the mutant Pyro, Kelly vowed to reconsider his standing on mutants and work towards improving human/mutant relations. Ironically, he was not long afterwards assassinated by a militant anti-mutant activist, furious that Kelly had betrayed their cause.
