Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967), better known by his nickname ''"Che"'', [[note]] An informal Argentinian interjection equivalent to "hey". Used to call other's people attention. His Cuban friends heard him use it a lot and the name stuck. So "Che Guevara" is basicly "Hey, Guevara". [[/note]] was an [[{{UsefulNotes/Argentina}} Argentinian]] [[Creator/KarlMarx Marxist]] revolutionary who attained fame for his active role as a guerrilla leader and strategist in the Cuban Revolution (in which he helped UsefulNotes/FidelCastro to seize power from the United States-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista) and then later, his death in Bolivia, where he was arrested and executed by the Bolivian military with the aid of the CIA. He also ran Castro's most infamous prison and later took part in the Congo revolution, but it wasn't successful.. A photograph of Che by Alberto Korda became one of the most famous photographs during TheSixties, which thanks to the intense gaze of its subject along with his youth and good looks made him an IconOfRebellion well into the 21st Century, reprints of said image created a profitable market for T-shirts with his face on it.

Defending a socialist cause and being executed at a young age, Che Guevara has evolved into a symbol that represents both, ''"civil disobedience"'' and ''"political awareness"'' (TheOtherWiki has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Che_Guevara several]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legacy_of_Che_Guevara articles]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Che_Guevara_in_popular_culture about him]]). More often than not, he is also used as the "Romantic Expression" of Guerilla Warfare: a tough but well-intentioned guy, willing to fight injustice (and American imperialism) over everything. [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade Often treated as a hero figure in many books, film, and TV shows alike]]. The parts where he [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured and executed political prisoners]] ([[WouldHurtAChild some of them teenage boys]]), [[AxCrazy openly advocated nuclear holocaust against the United States]], and [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain was obscenely racist against Africans]] are either glossed over or ignored completely.

He also ran Castro's most infamous prison prison, La Cabana, and oversaw Revolutionary Tribunals and summary executions. After that he worked as a government bureaucrat and took a lead in introducing literary measures. Eventually he became restless and decided to engage in revolutionary causes again.

This sanitized portrayal of Che Guevara is however necessary for his commodification in the West into a mass-market consumerist image providing money that mostly goes to western capitalist nations, so it's unlikely to change as long as Che continues to be in demand.



** He is also known to have [[DirtyCoward begged for his life]] when the Bolivian Army found him, insisting that he was worth more alive than dead. The "Shoot, coward!" line came after the Bolivian commander had staged several mock executions and decided to do for real this time. Whether Guevara knew they were really going to do it or just thought he could go along with the act is open to interpretation.
