Mutant Registration Act is a legislative bills which, when passed into law, enforce the mandatory registration of superpowered individuals with the government made by Robert Kelly.
The U.S. senate held a hearing on the Mutant Registration A͏c͏t.
In the first X-Men movie the events of the movie are precipitated when Senator Robert Kelly introduces a Mutant Registration Act to the Senate.
It is the prospect of this proposed legislation that motivates Magneto in his schemes , as he sees it as persecutory towards mutants. He is eventually successful in replacing Kelly with Mystique, who impersonates the Senator and removes the Act from consideration.
