Men in Black, or MIB, is a franchise that originated as a comic series, but was later adapted into films starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones which branched the franchise into an animated series and various video games.
The films and animated series popularized two weapons used by the MIB: Neuralyzer (the size of an average cigar tube that gives a bright flash which erases the memories of the past hours, days, weeks, months or years, depending on the chosen settings) and Noisy Cricket (first gun used by Agent J and is small but packs a powerful punch).
With the release of the films Men in Black II and Men in Black III, most if not all elements of the Men in Black animated series have been verified as noncanon.
- Agent J/James Darrell Edwards III
- Agent K/Kevin Brown
- Frank the Pug
- Chief Zed
- Agent L (first film, animated series)
- The Worm Guys
- The Twins: Idikiukup and Bob
Although the fandom is quite small, it's mainly focused on the films and animated series. Various fansites were available in the early 2000s focused on at least the animated series, they were usually located on free sites such as GeoCities. However, now the fandoms seem to exist solely on Archive of Our Own and FanFiction.net, with some fanart posted at Deviantart.
Phil Coulson of the MCU fandom is frequently used as a son of Agent K (its a fairly common headcanon); even Darcy Lewis is sometimes related to him (Example: The Family That Fights Together by em_iloveyou_d) or simply in a crossover (Example: K is for K by Blinded_Kit).
