Top 10 Immortals

Major Spoilers has posted their list of the top immortals.  To be honest, my geek rating is low because I’ve never heard of half of them …  Check it out here

8.  Connor MacLeod (The Highlander, March 1986)

Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod introduced us to the legend of The Quickening, and why it is best to keep our head on our shoulders.  A foundling, Connor later discovers his immortality when a conk on the head fails to kill him.   An outcast, MacLeod wanders the land until he settles down to live a life with his young wife. With the help of mentor Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez, MacLeod learns to defend himself against those who wish to take his head.

Like others on our list, MacLeod has to witness the death of loved ones, and has to change his identity every couple of decades to keep from being burned at the stake, and to keep himself hidden from other immortals who wish to gather his Quickening power.
