The Man in Black was an unnamed CIA agent who helped Professor X and his team.
The Man in Black believed in mutants when nobody knew that they existed. When Professor X and Mystique came to show their powers, his mouth was open when Mystique shapeshifted and he was willing to help them. He took the team to Division X where they could be watched by the CIA.
