Located some information through wikipedia that might of use to those who are working on MJ's hoax and connecting any V for Vendetta threads.

The number 5 and letter V
There are numerous references throughout V for Vendetta (both potentially intentional or unintentional) to the number 5 and letter V, which is itself "5" in Roman numerals:

  • The title of each chapter begins with the letter V.
  • The character V is seen reading and quoting from Thomas Pynchon's novel, V.
  • Beethoven's fifth symphony is used by V and noted for the prominent use of three short notes and one long, which is the Morse Code identifier for the letter V (this code was used as a call sign by the BBC during World War II, most famously in the sense of V for Victory).
  • V is identified in the series as the prisoner from Room V at Larkhill Internment Camp.
  • The access to V's hideout goes from the closed Victoria tube station, the damaged sign of which resembles a sideways V when Finch locates it.
  • V's personal motto consists of the Latin phrase Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe) - five words that begin with the letter "v". V identifies the origin of the phrase as Faust.
  • Guy Fawkes Night happens on 5 November.
  • The government consists of five branches which are identified with the five senses.
  • At Larkhill, V is injected with Batch "5".
  • V's last word, at the end of the series, starts with a V.
  • Much of V's dialogue uses iambic pentameters (verse with five stressed syllables per line).

A parallel to V=5 could also be TII=T2 (Thriller 2)
