Issue(s): Strange Tales #103 (Human Torch story only)
Review/plot: OK, the first three dimensions are length, height, and width. The fourth dimension is time. The fifth dimension is a place filled with blue skinned aliens...
...who plan to invade Earth by submerging houses into the ground and using bulky freeze ray canons to freeze our soldiers. Johnny Storm puts a stop to all this nonsense...
...and also makes some time with a hot blue skinned princess. The End!
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A - but Reed, Sue and the Thing are busy with another case.
Continuity Implant? N

So in his previous story, he was fighting a villain who was anti-amusement part, and in this one the villains are anti-housing development. Johnny is awfully pro-construction for a teenager in the 60's with flame powers.
"OK, the first three dimensions are length, height, and width. The fourth dimension is time. The fifth dimension is a place filled with blue skinned aliens..."
No, the 5th Dimension is a Motown act.
(but if you're actually feeling science-y and are willing to slog through a bit of a hard read - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five-dimensional_space)
