"V", is a mysterious man who leads a revolution against a corrupt Dystopian society in the Vertigo comic V for Vendetta. V is a man who has escaped imprisonment from the Larkhill resettlement concentration camp in England (the setting for the dystopia), after being experimented on by the Camp's scientists with the injection of Batch-5 serum. Batch-5 is a mixture of pituarin and pinearin, A potent and unpredictable mutagen. V is the only one who survived the experiment and it actually yields some beneficial results. He has enhanced strength, enhanced reflexes and an enhanced mental capacity. These hormonal experiments also gave V enhanced abilities beyond normal human boundaries. (similar to the Super Soldier Serum used on Captain America) He wears a metal ballistic Guy Fawkes mask, and bases his actions on the events of the Gunpowder Plot, and the date November the Fifth (the date the Gunpowder Plot took place)
