A mad scientist is a stock character of popular fiction, more specifically Science Fiction, either villainous, benign or neutral. Whether insane, eccentric, or simply bumbling, the mad scientist is often working with some utterly fictional technology in order to forward his schemes. Alternatively, they fail to see the evil that will ensue from the hubris of “playing god”.
