    Yeah. My wife was like WTF?? In the comic, Bubastis was Ozy's genetically altered feline friend. It explained it a bit better and he was with him most of the time. His sacrificial death was therefore more meaningful. Whereas he just sort of appeared outta nowhere in the film, with only a brief mention of Adrian's company doing genetic research. I felt they should have either explained it better, just made him a regular tiger or taken him out altogether.

    Bubastis is a genetically altered lynx. He was Ozymandias's companion, and one of the first successes he had with genetic engineering. I'd say more, but you apparently haven't read the book. I recommend you do so, even though it will be cheapened by the movie.

    Zabu FTW. He's a sabre-tooth cat and Bubastis is just a genetically modifited lynx. I don't think she'd stand much of a chance against a massive prehistoric cat that has to live in the Savage Lands.

    what color is Bubastis? I think they changed her coat color in the film.

    Bubastis primarily served to show that Veidt was completely devoid of any sort of attachment.  He was more than happy of disintegrate the cat along with Manhattan.

    I'm glad they included the lynx in the book. But the appearance of it made much more sense with the original ending of the story and not the one they did in the movie.
