*** You are assuming that Lesbian = Transsexual. It doesn't. It's actually more likely that Delia might have referred to her as a "man" because someone like her would consider lesbians unfeminine.

Added DiffLines:

*** Well, UsefulNotes/{{Iran}} is notoriously homophobic, and it lets people get sex changes. However, this has led to a bunch of gay people being pressured to get SRS...

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: V is in reality Evey Hammondís younger brother]]

Added DiffLines:

*** It's unlikely that an anti-LGBT regime would provide SRS, forced or otherwise. More likely is that V was referred to as a man by the facility's staff despite identifying as a woman, perhaps in part as an aspect of conversion therapy to "fix" V's gender identity. This is how conservative governments and individuals (particularly in Western countries) tend to deal with transgender individuals. V's genitalia have nothing to do with this identity. Personally, I'd say there's definitely sufficient subtext in the comics to assume V was intended to be transgender, however there isn't quite enough material to know the extent of V's transition or even which direction it went. It's even entirely possible they were nonbinary or genderfluid. However, for the purposes of narrative streamlining, I'm inclined to think being a transwoman (probably pre-op, and possibly even without access to HRT - and if so, almost definitely subject to HRT reversal while a prisoner) is the most likely scenario.

** Then again, she described him as ugly earlier, but described him as "beautiful" before her death. Whether this is due to a symbolic change in perception on her part (as suggested on the comic's main page) or because whoever is V in that panel is a different person than the V she saw before, is left up to you.

[[WMG: V was a TimeLord...]]

to:

\n* Schizophrenia and Dissociative Identity Disorder aren't the same thing; that's a lazy and possibly very harmful stereotype (I don't know enough to confirm it is harmful, but most stereotypes are, anyways, so). Her having DID is fairly plausible, in this troper's opinion, since it's usually caused by childhood trauma, and her having a traumatic childhood does seem likely. The question would be how they'd interact, which, since (again) I don't know enough about DID to have a clear-cut answer to, I can't say completely disproves this theory, but does break my suspension of disbelief; another question would be why V died and Every survived, when if they were both shot neither should've survived, and if neither was shot, there was no reason for V to die.

[[WMG: V was an [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin]]]]

[[WMG: V was an [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Assassin]]]]
a member of the Brotherhood of Assassins]]]]
A list of the evidence.
*His missions are assassinating high-ranking members of an oppressive government.
* The Norsefire Administration is part of the Templar Order, and Adam Sutler is a Grand Master. All their talk about "unity" and "faith" sounds like medieval and Renaissance Templar rhetoric. "We need to make them remember....Why!They!Need!Us!" likewise.
*He uses stealth and throwing knives as part of his arsenal.
*His hideout is underground and it stores many cultural treasures. Several Assassin's Creed games show the Assassins as being big on learning and artistic freedom.
*He trains Evey to be his successor by making her understand his interpretation of the Creed.
*Part of his objective is to convince the populace to overthrow their Templar masters, echoing Ezio Auditore's belief in the common man.

The similarity via the verbose vocabulary, makes it very obvious....verily!


* At least in a meta-sense, Valerie 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.

**If there's a source for that beyond this TV Tropes page, that'd be fantastic. If there isn't, V is only not Evey's dad, Charlie's aunt or Whistler's mother.



to:

* Another trans troper. Valerie thought they were a lesbian, and they were assigned female at birth so they were raised as a woman. Then they realized they're actually a straight trans man. That makes the most sense.


* Better yet, V's real identity is [[CodeGeass Lelouch Vi Britannia]]. Notice the V in the middle.....

to:

** Unless the Fawkes mask is his face ''symbolically'', similar to Rorschach considering his superhero/vigilante persona to be his true identity rather than Walter Kovacs and the mask he wears his face to the point that, when unmasked, he starts screaming at the officers to give back his face.



to:

* This can't be, as V wouldn't have had any access to the ridiculous surgery capable of making his face look that plastic (just to start) and before someone he kills dies (this troper can't remember who it was, but they're mentioned above somewhere) they request to see his face again and he takes off the mask. Not the mention any of the other times he takes the mask off.
