why cant I add this information and some admin on drugs keeps deletin it? = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_%C3%96yster_Cult released a single entitled "Take Me Away" in 1983 written by Eric Bloom, Aldo Nova, which mentiones Men in Black and deals with extraterrestial imaginery.

X-files[edit]

I'm surprised to see no mention here of the multiple references to MiB's on the X-Files, including he hilarious episode where Jesse Ventura and Alex Trebek were Men in Black. Beeblebrox (talk) 03:39, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

17th century 'man in black'[edit]

Reference that might be useful, from an Australian newspaper of 1875, the third paragraph is quoting the Sunday Review, and there's this: "The devil of the 17th century belonged to a very inferior type. He appeared as a hedgehog, as a black dog, as a man in black..." [1] (No idea which Sunday Review it is but Australian newspapers of this era often included snippets from UK newspapers and magazines). AnonNep (talk) 06:23, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Unduly negative[edit]

The role of the MIB is to protect earth from aliens. To say that they are "government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen" is altogether too negative.101.98.175.68 (talk) 05:27, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

  • You're confusing the plot line of a film series with a much broader topic about supposed government agents generally. This article is about the latter and includes mention of the former. Stlwart111 06:50, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Indeed this men in Black were initialy reported by some Ufologist and authors like harass agents, the movie was made much latter trying to *whitewash* the reputation of those persons in a fictional/comic way.Mr.User200 (talk) 12:38, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Examples of claims?[edit]

How come there are 0 examples of the alleged encounters in the article? 71.75.130.191 (talk) 20:38, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Found this. Good source to clean up and reference the "Fringe claims" section. - LuckyLouie (talk) 21:14, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

US Government and cover ups.[edit]

Are United States trys to cover up stories about UFO's and sigitings that NASA has seen in space. But the truth be told hiding stories like this just makes a lot of people wanting to know the truth. But are government is all based on lies not truth. So how do the American people trust are government we just don't. Other planets do have life forms on them but they are not like are planet. They live under ground. Trust to know the facts and are government has an area 51 with real allien body's and there crafts. Now I'm in the open now what government can keep me from talking? I know that people will say this is a lie, I can black out and see what's about to happen before it happens. Like a hurricane is only in the ocean never to come across land but look katrena did. And a tronato would not hit in a vally but it did I see more about to happen and this government will never keep me quite. Danveo007 (talk) 19:47, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

"The Men in Black" (1992) film?[edit]

FWIW - seems there is a "The Men in Black" (1992) film, rated 7.8 of 10.0 (above average), on the IMBD website - but no mention whatsoever afaik on Wikipedia? - not much information seems to be available on the internet after a casual search - nonetheless, perhaps this film may be worth mentioning in one (or more) of the "Men in Black" Wikipedia articles? - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 13:58, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Men In Black were black[edit]

Fortean Times 341 June 2016 p 24 in an obituary of Albert K Bender reproduces Bender's drawings of his MIB, which clearly show they were black (ie Afro-Caribbean), as well as being dressed in black. This trope seems to have been lost in subsequent manifestations.
