I thought of an interesting feature for the superhumans in my dystopian series. I am thinking of making them maneaters, predatory beings who can only eat human flesh. This will be one of the factors that will put the superhumans at odds with the normal humans. Let me put it to you this way: imagine if the X-Men were man-eaters.

One thought on “MANEATERS”

  1. Hmm, I think instead of flesh it would be cool if they ate a certain organ or gland from the human body. Something that secretes an enzyme or protein that only that organ makes. I always liked that about the Relic book. It can make for a disturbing death. Instead of being eaten whole or the cliche zombie style. A monster has to dig into the body and rip out the desired food. Maybe someone stops the “Maneater” in the middle of a feasting but gets real jacked up cause his stomach is ripped open.

    I’ve always found this tactic to be why Return of The Living Dead was better than Romero’s Night of The Living Dead. Romero made flesh eaters that ate for no reason other than hunger. Where Return of The Living Dead, the zombies ate exclusively just brains and had to eat them to stop the pain of being dead. AMAZING!
