WHAT MAD UNIVERSE. New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., Octavo, boards. First edition. "Out of an infinity of universes there must be one that mirrors the adolescent SF fan's fantasies, complete with the trappings of SF pulpdom.

The quotation touches upon an issue central to The Fault in Our Stars. Throughout the novel both Hazel and Augustus seek to make sense out of the meaning of existence. Hazel’s belief is that the universe is indifferent to human life and suffering, and this view informs her thoughts on the meaning of existence and the possibility of an afterlife. The Mad Thinker was also one of the villains that Doctor Doom coerced into disrupting Reed and Sue's wedding, though Iron Man appeared and stopped him. He has continued to construct new, more advanced androids, and later found and resurrected the original android Human Torch in order to fight the Fantastic Four.
