This sounds about right. The whole great man angle is excessively liberal, and it confused the shit outta me why V only has one
protege instead of as many as possible. It's not a good demonstration of actual revolution or even anarchy specifically, so meh, but even understanding the radlib context it's really bizarre for the revolution to hinge on one (wo)man and a student. It makes some sense character-wise for V to be like that but why write the character that way? Especially since V is thematically supposed to represent the resistance that's inherently produced by tyranny. This lends itself to a group dynamic, but that's only referenced in the movie with everyone wearing the masks at the end.
