This article is not about the fictional Hollywood movie series featuring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, it is about the real Men in Black, whose mysterious ways have bewildering us since almost half a century.For those who are not familiar with the MIB phenomenon, we’ll turn to a true expert in the field, the late John Keel, author of The Mothman Prophecies Proof of the Real Men in Black?. In 1967, Keel coined the term “Men In Black” in an article for the men’s adventure magazine Saga, entitled “UFO Agents of Terror”. He described the Men in Black as generally sharing the same overall look… from their long coats and fancy suits to their fedora style black hats. Perhaps most disturbingly, he said they tend to share a similar physical appearance, being gaunt and pale with a sinister look about them.
The Men in Black are a group of bizarre men with a strange demeanor who are said to show up at the houses of those who either claim to have witnessed a UFO or alien sighting, or else have been deeply involved in the investigation of extra terrestrial intelligence, warning them not to disclose their experiences or information about the aliens. The Men in black will often perform actions requiring supernatural strength, such as materializing or disappearing right before the witness’ eyes. Many witnesses have reported to have felt sick immediately after the Men in Black have left, the sickness sometimes remaining for days.
