Senator Kelly was a staunchly anti-mutant United States Senator. He argued that mutants made normal people afraid and that mutants should be registered in order to know who they were and what they could do. He believed the American people had a right to decide if they wanted to send their children to school with mutants or to be taught by mutants.

He was kidnapped by Mystique of the Brotherhood of Mutants and was subjected to a process that turned him into a mutant. Unbeknown to Magneto, the process was ultimately fatal, culminating in Kelly's body rejecting the unnatural gene and killing him by turning his body into a in a malleable jellyfish-like form. He died while in the custody of the X-Men.

Following his death Mystique stole his identity and withdrew his support of the Mutant Registration Act.
