The Men in Black was founded in the U.S. in the mid-1950s and began as a small and poorly funded government organization devoted to making contact with extraterrestrial life. They were initially seen as a joke, but did make contact with a group of alien refugees on March 2, 1961, outside New York City.
It was decided to make Earth an apolitical zone for aliens without a planet, and the organization broke its government ties to become the Men in Black, which became the singular force to conceal and police the aliens that came to Earth. The founding members were the 7 agents present at the landing, plus an amateur astronomer and a young man who got lost going to see his girlfriend. This last one became K, and one of the agents became his partner D. The MiB has continued since then, with Zed as its senior agent, to protect the normal citizens of Earth from alien threats and police extraterrestrial immigrants, with notable members including B, J, and L.
To keep alien immigrants save, they are given human identities and people who have discovered that someone is an alien, are neuralized.
It works closely together with the Center who are far older than MiB and concentrate on other threats as well. Monitoring aliens and acting on confirmed alien threats are the exclusive jurisdiction of the MiB. They later spanned the Skyway Patrol, which is meant to monitor technological breakthroughs of humans, that are close to alien technology and could spark interest of aliens. They are also specialized in monitoring artifical species.
It was mentioned by Professor Utonium, when he was reflecting on the Omega Event.
