So I have a zombie outbreak in one of my stories, not a full blown apocalypse mind you, but a few hundred zombies. Now since this story features super humans, regular zombies stand an even worse chance than normal, so I needed to change things up a little bit.
So this virus comes in three strains, the first two only work on regular cells and turn anything they infect into a "zombie" version. I have this pretty well figured out. The original strain, however, instantly kills any normal cells it infects, but works wonders on super humans. Instead of turning them into regular zombies, it kills them and rewires their brains, allowing the body to technically still be alive. The virus also allows the "super zombie" to keep all of their abilities while granting them the ability to heal and control the infected. The super zombies are also intelligent and capable of strategy. Really they have more in common with apex predators than traditional zombies.
So here's my question. Does this seem plausible considering the capabilities of real world pathogens? If not, how could I make this more believable?
