     High Concept #10 is "The Immigrant Experience".  To explicate further,
the story should be about someone who willingly relocated (to another city,
country, planet or even reality) for some reason and is involved in
superheroism or supervillainy.  Maybe the super-aspect is why they moved,
maybe not.

     Comics have plenty of examples, going back to Superman or even beyond,
of superheroes who are exiles, refugees or foundlings...unwilling
immigrants.  But there are far fewer examples of superheroes or supervillains
who intentionally uproot themselves and leave their homes behind.  It's that
sort of immigrant-on-purpose who should be the focus of a HCC10 story.

     Dave Van Domelen, has had this idea sitting in his mental queue for a
while.  :)
