    Had that been established back in 1998, when the movie came out? I don't think so.

    I feel like his name was revealed in the season after the movie came out, but I could be wrong.

    My impression is that that was also later down the road. At the time, the novelization was written, he was just the Cigarette-Smoking Man.

    You're both right. The movie came out between seasons five and six; the Smoking Man's "real" name wasn't revealed until the season six episode, "Two Fathers."
