|~ Cristu's plans for his father Tiberiu.|
|“||There is the old man and his son. His son is Cristu. He is bad, but he is not caring what he does. To him all of it is business—everything, beating girls if they make trouble, it is just to make business run right. He does not really feel.||„|
|~ Viorica addressing Cristu's sociopathy.|
Cristu Bulat is one of the three main antagonists in Volume 5 of The Punisher MAX, along with his father Tiberiu and girlfriend Vera Konstantin. He's the leading businessman of a New York City human trafficking operation set up by him and his father. Unlike Tiberiu, Cristu isn't sadistic and sex slavery is all about business to him, nothing more.
Cristu was born in Romania, and at some point he and his father Tiberiu got involved in the Yugoslav Wars. Knowing it would come to end quickly, Cristu along with his lover Vera Konstantin hatched a plan to create a forced prostitution ring. Cristu eventually included his father in the deal, hoping it would calm him down and allow him to live out his life in relative peace. Cristu is not happy when he finds out his father captured some black gang members who were operating in their territory. Cristu, angered, tells his father they aren't going anywhere near the Punisher and will let the police deal with it, since everyone who goes after the Punisher ends up dead. Later on, the Punisher arrives at Cristu's safehouse and proceeds to kill all of Cristu's men after spiking their stew with liquid drugs to make them fall asleep, after which he gets Jen Cooke to get four enslaved girls to safety. Cristu later wakes up and freaks out, seeing his guts hanging on tree limbs before proceeding to tell the Punisher everything about the organization before finally bleeding to death. According to the Punisher, Cristu spent his last moments of life shouting "coward" at him in Romanian.
