Guy Fawkes makes a comeback

Guy Fawkes, an English mercenary and failed plotter whose death was elevated into a national celebration complete with bonfires and the burning of effigies, reappeared four centuries later in mask form during demonstrations across the United States in 2011. His grinning, mustachioed face has become the symbol of resistance for almost any political movement. That, of course, includes Occupy Wall Street. Karen Bleier / AFP/Getty Images
