Like no one can really know if atoms exist?

Nope, we see atoms in electronic microscopes (I think).

In any case, we can only ASSUME what goes on inside any animal's (even humans) head.

Back on the subject of Bubastis's color, I always assumed that Adrian had bred her to have color changing fur that reacted to radio signals so that he could control her hues via remote control. Everybody wins!

Edit: Oh my god. Doctor Manxhattan. Nice find! You should really cite your sources to give the original creator credit (found a link: http://jasonbot.com/?cat=28).

Hullo there.

I'm pretty sure Ziller wasn't claiming authorship of the image, and the image source is actually embedded in the image.

But welcome to the forum!

Yeah, that. I'd rather get sued than cite the source of every image I post.

But anyway, thank you for reviving my terrible excuse for a thread and welcome to the forum.

You won't get sued. If the other person had the leverage of suing you, then I wouldn't bother. But they make stuff and put it on the internet for free, for people to read. Technically you could follow the image url, but that is infinitely less likely to drive the small amount of extra traffic to his site that he deserves.

I just realized something...

the man's name and blog url are both on the image itself.

I'm seriously getting mad at you now.

Totally didn't realize that. Looks like a link wasn't necessary this time after all. Sorry for making requests that would have been reasonable under other circumstances. Have a nice day.

The whole point of Bubastis in Watchmen is to show a hero sacrificing his animal sidekick. And the fact that this happens at the end of the book makes it surprising and impactful. Bubastis sure was a nice touch on Alan Moore's part.

Bubastis was really nothing more than a subplot to explain how Adrian's inevitable plan of saving the world came into play. Bubastis herself was just there to hide the villain part of Veidt.

More than simply just showing the 'hero' (itself eminently debatable) destroying his faithful companion, I think the fact that he had Bubastis artificially created to his own design as the object of his affection in the first place provides us with just as much of an insight into Veidt's sociopathic psyche. That, whilst simultaneously providing foreshadowing of Veidt's further involvement in genetic manipulation to come...
