Highlander is a movie, television, comic, and video game franchise involving immortals who fight to the death (via beheading), which results in the victor taking the power of the loser (called the quickening). The initial movie debuted in 1986, and the primary lead characters for the franchise are fellow clansmen Connor MacLeod and Duncan MacLeod (portrayed by Christopher Lambert and Adrian Paul, respectively).
"There can be only one!"
- Graphic novelist J. T. Krul was a writer for the comic Highlander: Way of the Sword (2007).
- The manner in which immortals must decapitate the heads of their rivals to stop them, is similar to how Sylar's method of examining brains stops the abilities of evolved humans.
