I am a rather dark idea for my new superhero series. What if the rise of superhumans was the result of a global epidemic? Where would such a virus come from? How many normal humans would die to give rise to superhumans? I am thinking of drawing inspiration from the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic, which resulted in the deaths of five percent of the world’s population.


  1. Sounds interesting. Did everyone who survived the virus a superhuman? Is there a ratio of good guys to bad? I am very curious about the hero of this idea. If you write, I will read it.

    1. 80 % of those exposed to the virus die and the other 20% become superhuman. There will initially be no good superhumans or bad superhumans. The main enemy will be the government.
