Robert Stanton is a corrupt Vice President of the United States.


Some time before the events of Red, Robert Stanton was born into the wealthy political family of Stanton (his father was a senator). According to Alexander Dunning, his father served in the Army as a "young lieutenant" before he was extracted by Dunning for a weapons transfer experiment. Stanton Sr, tested the weapons on a village in Guatemala. Dunning ordered hits on the people who were aware of this. Stanton Jr. than ran as a running mate to the current president (in the Red timeline).

In the events of Red, Stanton is running for president. At a fundraiser gala he is kidnapped by RED CIA-agent Frank Moses for his involvement with his ordered hits. However, when Dunning arrives, he shoots Stanton in the leg. Stanton is eventually captured by William Cooper. However, it's later revealed that he was never involved.

After the events of the film, it is unknown what happens to him next.
