Some people fold. Others survive. When Fifteen year old Nicholas Santiago was informed that has spinal cord had sustained a massive, life changing injury, he was presented with that exact choice. Fold or Survive? Evolve or Die? Within five months of the initial diagnosis, Nicholas was severely paralyzed and living in constant pain. After countless treatments and physical therapy sessions he sought a new way to heal. He began writing music. This music gave him a reason to live and a goal to fight for everyday. Although many battles would still be waged, and more pain would be endured, Nicholas Santiago became Mr. Agitator, and Mr.Agitator would always Survive. Over time Mr.Agitator would form V Is For Villains. If there is one truth that could be shared about them it is this: Villains Never Die.
