Appearances in Other Media

Adam Sutler

In the 2006 feature film V for Vendetta the character of Adam Susan was named Adam Sutler and he was played by veteran actor John Hurt. The surname "Sutler" is an amalgamation of Susan and Hitler, a playful way of drawing a parallel between Adolph Hitler's Third Reich and Susan's Norsefire Party. Ironically, John Hurt is also famous for playing a victim of a Fascist society in the film adaptation of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. The film version of the character is not as complex as the novel version; the inner turmoil so prevalent in the novel is absent in the film. While his graphic novel counterpart genuinely believes in achieving order and stability at any cost, this version of the character seems to care only about achieving power for himself and merely uses promises of peace and security to keep the populace in line. The film version of the character also claims to be a "deeply religious" Christian as a way of furthering his rise to power. In the film, Norsefire seizes control of England by murdering thousands of people with a laboratory-engineered plague, blaming the catastrophe on terrorists, and promising to restore order. He then uses the supposed terrorist threat, along with an ongoing propaganda campaign in the state-run media, to cow the public into silence and justify Norsefire's genocidal policies. As in the graphic novel, Sutler lives in an underground bunker in self-imposed exile and leaves the day-to-day operation of his empire to his lieutenants.

Toward the end of the film, Sutler blames Creedy for the failure to capture V. Creedy then makes a deal with V to kill Sutler. Creedy and his men kidnap Sutler and bring him to V in the London Underground, where Creedy executes his boss by shooting him in the forehead.
