Myths around strange men who wear black garments date back many centuries in many cultures. Celtic legends recorded many "tricksters" who wore black and enchanted people.
In 1996, two strange MIBs (one who looked uncannily like Alex Trebek) appeared in Klass County, Washington, according to the reports of several people. They supposedly attempted to persuade Roky Crikenson that he did not see a UFO, claiming that it was the planet Venus.
They later destroy a tape of a possible UFO recorded by Blaine Faulkner, and knock him unconscious.
Finally, the MIBs met with FBI Agents Mulder and Scully, in an attempt to hinder their investigation. Both were knocked unconscious. This event was recorded by José Chung for his book From Outer Space. (TXF: "José Chung's From Outer Space")
