** Doesn't he? V destroys his cell using only gardening utensils and decoration. Even MacGyver would have trouble pulling that off. Using piles of dirt and strategically placed candles for it seems just like the kind of thing a mage could pull off...

** Nothing in particular, it's just that gay men supposedly make up a disproportionate number of musical theatre aficionados, so it seems like an appropriate guess. Claiming that V's personality type means he must be gay is inaccurate, but it's just meant facetiously... also, you're probably not as WickedCultured as V if you don't commit acts of terrorism and then write musical numbers about it, though (don't take this as a recommendation).

* I wrote this, and in retrospect, there are some problem with this theory. One problem comes from how Norsefire's elites did not recognize V, dispatching the Finger to find out who V was even after seeing and hearing V's body language and voice. If V were a former Norsefire elite, party members such as Prothero and Lilliman should recognize something of V when they came into contact. Second, if you have a high ranking political prisoner, and you decide to [[spoiler: use them as a test subject in a horrific medical experiment]], the last thing you want to do is give them something dangerous like gardening tools or fertilizer. Even if V didn't know how to [[spoiler: use the fertilizer to escape]], attacking guards and tunneling out both seemed like viable options with the tools. This could be an example of Prothero picking up the VillainBall, but it seems reckless compared to everything else Norsefire did ( such as conquering England, maintaining order after nuclear war, and treating V as a serious threat).

* This and "V is a former Norsefire supporter, or at least someone who believed in a strong government and the supremacy of law" are even better theories than [[Tropers/TitoMosquito my]] "V was a political prisoner" theory. I can also accept those two as my headcanon.



[[WMG: V's real name begins with a "V" and/or is related to the number 5.]]

We know that Adam Sutler had initially been a member of the Conservative Party (accoring to V disguised as Rookwood). This seems logical because, according to Valerie's flashback, he was responsible for closing the Tube when he was Undersecretary for Defence (ie. a minor member of the government). Clearly this can't be a Norsefire government because he founded that party.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The story starts immediately after V recovers from severe burns, and his costume is a burn suit.]]
Part of the recovery process after being severely burned involves a compression suit to control scarring and keep the body from regrowing incorrectly. Since he couldn't go anywhere for medical help, and [[spoiler::he walked through fire while escaping]], it wouldn't be surprising if V's costume was meant to aid in recovery first, and he added frills later. If the recovery was still recent, kidnapping Evey might have been an attempt to get support. In case the costume changes V made early in the graphic novel didn't go well (i.e. the 'vaudevillian' suit and mask), he'd have someone around to help out.

* At least in a meta-sense, Valeries was the original V. Wasn't V supposed to be a doll like transgender hero in the early stages? That fell through due to executive meddling. V as we know him was passed on the legacy from V. Evey took up the mantel by V putting her through what he did, i.e. recreating Valerie handing off the mantel to her in a way. There is a parallel universe where V is Valerie where the executives did not meddle.

* It's worth noting that Valerie is literally one of only two people [[WordOfGod explicitly ruled out by Alan Moore.]] (Along with Evey's dad, of course.)

[[WMG: V is [[Literature/AtlasShrugged John Galt]].]]
The parallels are so blatant they cannot be dismissed as coincidence. V and Galt are mysterious figures whose actions create a society-wide sense of mythology about them. They seek to pull a society-wide BatmanGambit to cause the tyrannical Big Brother government to collapse as the people reject it. And in the most obvious parallel...V takes control of the airwaves of Britain so as to proclaim his manifesto to all.

* ...Or, somewhat born from this theory, what if V was Ruth? Valerie's lover? Maybe Valerie didn't know that she was in the next room, or maybe Ruth took drugs that made her lose her memory, changed her physique... It would be touching, considering the shrine V dedicates to her, if V were really Ruth and somehow remained loving Valerie in spite of losing her past memories.
