    It is stated the prize is the combined power/knowledge of all the immortals within the last surviving immortal.

    It is stated if one like the Kurgan gets the prize, mankind is doomed forever to darkness....

    Connor gets the prize at the end of the first movie, he is now omniscient and telepathic but also MORTAL and can have kids????? Uhm....so an eternity of darkness if an evil one gets it, but a good immortal becomes mortal?? So what happens to all that power when the good one perishes? Do new immortals arise or is it gone for good?

    Makes no sense.

It made sense to me. Connor got exactly what the Kurgan would have gotten. The difference is what Connor chose to do with it.

Connor became superhuman. Invincible in single combat, invincible in strategy, filled with endless knowledge from endless lifetimes, telepathic... now turn all that toward evil goals. That's what would have happened if the Kurgan got all that.

Connor also almost certainly had access to tremendous wealth, and not only what he himself had stored up. He now knew where all of the other immortals had stored their wealth, including the Kurgan.

Connor, had he been evil, could have become the next Genghis Khan. Instead, he chose to be a man of peace.
