V for Vendetta has is one of the best comic books ever made (far more interesting than the overrated Watchmen, and even more dystopic than The Dark Knight Returns). We'll probably never see V for Vendetta make it to HeroClix form, but we can always hope... and we always have the Quintessential Series!
First off, this V for Vendetta is based on the comic book V, not the horrible movie version. The Quintessential V for Vendetta comes in at just 105 points (if you know what that is in roman numerals, then good for you!) and he's built for close action stealthy combat. He gets some early Charge and a full dial of Stealth, Toughness, and Shape Change because he can literally turn himself into anyone else as he sneaks into high security areas.
Dial by The Le (continued below)
As an alchemist, he can use Poison for penetrating damage, which seems to be the weapon of his choice when he's enacting revenge against those who created him. Some Outwit, Perplex, and other goodies help round out the Quintessential V for Vendetta to be a potent secondary attacker for your teams... all of which are fairly comic accurate without proving too powerful (he's just a mortal after all).
While previewing this dial, a few people were disappointed that the Quintessential V for Vendetta doesn't have Blades/Claws/Fangs -- this is intentional. BCF has the potential to deal 5 or 6 points of damage, and V really isn't that kind of powerhouse. He carries some small daggers (hence his double ranged attacks with a range of 4), but he doesn't use a sword, have claws, and he certainly shouldn't be able K.O. Spider-Man with one lucky BCF roll.
Of course, the Quintessential V for Vendetta needs to stay true to his melodrama; after all, all the world's a stage. If he makes it to his last click of life, he'll automatically sacrifice himself for the greater good. It's not as dramatic as blowing up big ben, but it gets the job done.
