In All-Flash #23 (April 1946), we actually get a genuine science fiction story in which the Flash is transported to the Planet Karma, has to time travel into the future of that planet, battle aliens and alien dinosaurs, and correct his own mistakes by doing even more time-traveling.

I like how the Flash is still learning the mechanics of time travel in this story! And best of all – no comic relief. Why do we have to wait 5+ years for stories to get deep into sci-fi like this story does?
