The mutant zombie is a common feature in zombie media. In Day by Day Armegeddan, zombies affected by radiation are smarter and stronger than regular ones. In rot & ruin it is a genetics thing. What would mutant zombies look like? How would they act? What causes it? Do zombies get cancer? What about weird abilities like blowing up when destroyed?

This is an interesting theory, but once you look at it a little bit deeper it does fall apart. What your talking about is nuclear energy, created when mass is converted into energy, and the only know process for doing that is either nuclear fission, or more efficiently fusion.
First off, neither of these processes convert the mass wholly into energy, the energy is more of a by-product. For example the fusion of tritium and deuterium (the two easiest fused hydrogen atoms, and most energy producing) only convert one neutron into energy. And this requires enormous amounts of energy to obtain. The force repelling the atoms must be overcome, wich requires extreme heat and pressure.
In order to convert mass wholly into energy (a process never known to have happened, not since the big bang) would require anti matter, wich is essentially matter with the opposite charge. The collision of matter and anti matter converts both into pure energy.
This however, could never take place inside of a human body, and even if it could, the energy would be uncontrollable. And all you would end up with is a singed zombie, not a walking one.
