In honor of Black History Month, we're honoring a sci-fi hero who shook up the establishment for the better: Men in Black's Agent J.

The role was a breakout for a young Will Smith, cementing his place as a legit A-list star. Agent J kicked butt and took names, bringing his inexhaustible work ethic and quick wits to the world of alien-hunting (and rescuing). Watching J find his place in this wild world of alien insanity was a lot of fun, but through it all, he showed he had the heart of a hero and could handle any curve ball that came at him.

He makes this look good.
