Highlander Has A Lot Of Potential
At its core, the Highlander franchise is based on the idea that living among us, all throughout history, have been some people who, for reasons never explained (or never explained well), are born immortal. These people are fated to battle each other to the death until only is left. The chosen weapon among the immortals is the sword, because the only way to kill one is to cut their head from their body. When only one immortal remains, they gain “the prize,” i.e. immeasurable power to do with as they choose.
