An Outcast is basically another name for an Exiled character or being, unlike the Imprisoned Villain an Outcast is banished without actually being imprisoned - sometimes being exiled is seen as sufficient punishment in itself. Many Outcast characters seek to return to their previous power or position - others are driven mad or embittered by it, few - if any - embrace the state of exile.
Alternatively an Outcast can be a tragic villain who is hated and feared by those around him/herself - forcing them into a life of relative isolation and/or wandering.
