This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   The political battle is the Fascist government versus the Anarchy that is represented by V. It is the Neo-Conservative government versus Liberalism represented by V.
   Both sides do bad things. The government as well as V are violent. It is more good guys(V) versus bad guys(government).
   V wears a number of different costumes. His mask even changes. He only wears the black outfit with the Guy Fawkes mask.
   V removes his mask voluntarily and shows Surridge his face before she dies. No one ever sees his face.
   The fascist government is elected legally and kept in power through the general apathy of the public. The "St. Mary's virus," a biological weapon engineered and released by the Norsefire party as a means of clandestinely gaining control over their own country.
   Evey is 15 years old and very naive. She is a young woman in her twenties and is not naive.
   Evey tries to prostitute herself for money, but solicits a Fingermen who wants to rape her as punishment. V saves her and takes her to watch the destruction of the Houses of Parliament. Evey works for a TV station and is out after curfew. She is spotted by the Fingermen and V rescues her. He takes her to watch the destruction of the Old Bailey.
   The leader of the Norsefire party is Adam Susan. He runs England with an iron fist and the assistance of a supercomputer known as Fate, whom he is secretly in love with. The leader is named Adam Sutler. There is no computer.
   After saving Evey from the Fingerman, he takes her back to his hideout. He releases her, and then takes her to the Shadow Gallery after she is knocked unconscious while helping him escape from the TV studio.
   Lewis Prothero is called "The Voice of Fate" on his radio show. He is called "The Voice of London" on his TV show.
   V stops a train carrying Prothero and kidnaps him. He is driven insane by a combination of an overdose of Batch 5 drugs and the shock of seeing his prized doll collection burned in a mock recreation of Camp Larkhill in V's headquarters. He remains incapacitated for the rest of the story. V goes to his house and kills him by lethal injection.
   Gordon is a criminal who hides Evey and has sex with her. He is murdered by a gangster. Gordon is Evey's boss at the TV station. He is gay. The government takes him and executes him for having a copy of the Quran.
   The year is 1997 and the world has suffered through nuclear war. It is 2020 and there was no nuclear blast, but Environmental issues.
   V was given a drug called "Batch 5" while at Larkhill that gave him super strength and agility. There is no mention of him taking Batch 5.
   Fitch goes to Larkhill and takes LSD to get into the mind of V. He visits Larkhill, but doesn't take any drugs.
   The Leader, Adam Susan is assassinated by Rosemary Almond during a parade. Creedy produces and kills Sutler in exchange for V's surrender and to supplant Sutler as the leader of Norsefire.
   Finch fatally shoots V, who dies in Evey's arms. V stages an amazing battle and defeats a dozen men with guns using only his signature knives. He is, however, mortally wounded in the fight, and makes it back to Evey only to die in her arms
   The Prime Minister's residence is the target of V's Viking Funeral. Evey puts his body on board the train with explosives. She then assumes the role of V, wearing his costume and mask. The Houses of Parliament are destroyed with V on the train, and Britain is left to ponder its future as thousands of people dressed in V's masks and cloaks watch the flames.
