Answer: c. LulzSec.

Guy Fawkes Day, Nov. 5, commemorates The Gunpowder Plot, a failed 1605 conspiracy to assassinate King James I by blowing up Parliament and everyone in it. Fawkes has recently gained a new notoriety through the sinister, smiling Guy Fawkes mask, worn by the anarchist revolutionary in the comic book and 2006 movie “V for Vendetta,” and has since been employed by the hacker group Anonymous and at Occupy protests around the world. Although the hacker group LulzSec has been associated with Anonymous, its own logo doesn’t go for such a menacing effect, looking more like Mr. Peanut than a revolutionary.
